GALION – In June, Ken Hunter received the news no one wants to hear: he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.
Hunter is a husband to Kim Hunter and the father of two daughters, three foster daughters, and helps his wife raise their grandsons. He is a family man who loves the outdoors but now requires 24-hour care as he battles his disease.
Hunter was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer in June.
“I worked with Ken and I am a friend of his family. Because Ken lost his job due to his illness, the family is struggling so we want to help them out and help with his medical bills,” said John Lunsford, who is assisting in holding a benefit for the Hunter family.
The event will take place beginning at 4 p.m. on Oct. 3 at the Galion Amvets, 420 Harding Way E. in Galion.
“We are also holding a Poker Walk the same day with signup beginning at 12:30 p.m. at TNT Bar, located at 529 Sherman St. It is $10 per person or $15 per couple,” Lunsford said.
The event will feature live music by several bands including Gunner and Cat Acoustics Uncovered, Cold River Rising, Scott Bon’e, and Discarded along with an auction, raffle and plenty of food.
