Brianne is currently undergoing chemotherapy for cancer which originally started in the cervix and has moved to other parts of her body. She is the recently widowed mother of four daughters and she lives in Lawrence. She greatly appreciates the support of her community of family and friends and everyone who has stepped up to help her in her time of need.

Editor's note: It is with great sadness that we must report Brianne lost her battle with cancer on Monday morning. We decided to go ahead with the coverage of the fund raiser to raise awareness for this family and these young daughters of Brianne that will need continued love and support as they carry on without their mother. We also wanted to show what a great community we live in as they have supported this family in their time of need. Please continue to support this family in the future.
