MATTSON FAMILY BENEFIT SHOW SUNDAY FEB 22ND @5PM - ENCINITAS

Hello Friends,

As some of you may or may not know, Jan and Arlene Mattson have had some health problems lately. Arlene had surgery two weeks ago to remove a brain tumor that had grown back after 15 years. She is still in northern California recovering and is expected to be back home in about four weeks.

Jan was recently diagnosed with colon cancer. He went in for an outpatient procedure last Friday to remove the cancerous tumor. The surgery did not go as expected. The surgeon was unable to remove the tumor and caused an ulcer to bleed during surgery. They could not get the bleeding to stop since the tumor was in the way, so they admitted Jan to the hospital with severe internal bleeding. The doctors told Jan he would not make it but miraculously the ulcer stopped bleeding on it’s own and Jan has been getting better everyday since. He is now back at home slowly recovering so he is strong enough for a second attempt at removing the tumor.

Both Jan and Arlene are self -employed and are not able to work right now. Bills are beginning to accumulate and we are reaching out to you, as friends, to help support this wonderful couple.

Please see the flyer below for info on the benefit show we are hosting for them. I realize that times are financially tough for all of us right now, but any and everything is helpful at this point. If you are unable to attend the show but would still like to make a donation, please send it to . . .
