MOULTONBOROUGH — A fundraiser is scheduled for Sunday, August 11 from 4:30-8:30 p.m. at the Village Kitchen to help pay the medical expenses of Robin Mudgett, who last month was diagnosed with a cancer and is currently undergoing chemotherapy treatments in effort to shrink a tumor which started in her kidney so that surgery can be performed.
Neither she nor her husband, Mike, have health insurance and Mudgett has had complications such as decreased kidney function and liquid around her heart that have required multi-day visits to Dartmouth-Hitchcock and Lakes Region General Hospital on a nearly weekly basis over the past month.
To help lessen the financial burden on their parents, the Mudgett children have organized Sunday's fundraiser BBQ buffet.
Cost is $10 per person with additional donations greatly appreciated. All money raised will go directly to pay Robin's medical bills. Donations can also be made to the Robin Mudgett Medical Fund at any Meredith Village Savings Bank.
