“Alena’s Angels” present fundraising concert

Alena Marek
Alena Marek and her sister, Kristine

Michael Allen Harrison & Julianne Johnson will perform in concert on Saturday, April 16, at 7 pm, at the Cedar Mill Bible Church to benefit the Alena J. Marek Cancer Fund. Tickets are available through for $25, $35, and $45. The concert is generously sponsored by Michael Allen Harrison, Julianne Johnson, and Cedar Mill Bible Church.

On March 15, 2010 Alena, who lives in Aloha, was diagnosed with Group 4, Stage IV Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma which places her in the high-risk category. This is an aggressive, rare, soft-tissue cancer that affects children under 15 years old. There are approximately 250 cases per year diagnosed in the United States. In 2010 there were two cases diagnosed in Oregon.

Alena deserves every chance for life, healing, and recovery. Her parents pray, plan, and expect that she will overcome this disease and grow into a lovely young woman. Alena qualified for a clinical trial, which is an aggressive and dose-compressed treatment plan to fight this cancer. This has been and continues to be extremely difficult on her and the Marek family.

If you would like more information about Alena's story you can check in at Her father Jim has been writing a journal to share the family's experiences with her many supporters.

If you cannot attend this event donations can be made at any branch of US Bank, ask for Alena J. Marek Donation Account c/o Acct #153-662-744-777.
