We are now gearing up for the 2nd annual Battle for Bella Benefit and fishing tournament scheduled for Nov 13th 2010. Location is at Gators on the pass in Treasure Island Florida. Brought to you by Florida Inshore Angler and Florida Parrot Rescue.
Bella is just turning 4 and fighting Neuroblastoma cancer. She's gone through the first round of treatment, an experimental drug that caused her to have a bad reaction but did help with the cancer. She is now moving into a new treatment stage and the medical costs are putting the family deeply in debt. Each injection of this experimental drug comes at a hefty cost of $19,000! Yes you read that right! To make matters worse, the treatments are NOT covered by insurance so the bill falls on the family.
I know times are tough right now for many in this economy, but let's do what we can to help Bella see five~
Last years event raised closed to 7k, but we'd like to see that number much higher this year. Please spread the word to everyone you know, and even to those you don't. Please follow the banner link on the main page of Florida Inshore Angler.com to read more on Bella's story.
