Rochester Area Jaycees Announce Benefit To Save 13-year Old From Brain Disorder

Apr 13, 2001, 01:00 ET from Rochester Area Jaycees

    ROCHESTER, Mich., April 13 /PRNewswire/ -- The Rochester Area Jaycees are
 hosting a Benefit Dinner and Silent Auction for Tyson Allen.  The donations
 raised will help finance Tyson's stay at Johns Hopkins and his mother's
 (a single parent) cost of living while in Maryland.
     Tyson is a 13-year old boy who has undergone over 100 surgeries on his
 brain and spine to correct a condition called Psuedo Tumor Cerebri.  This
 condition causes the brain to react like it has a tumor but there is no tumor.
 This causes a build up of spinal fluid in his brain, called hydrocephalus.
 The only way to fix this problem is for Tyson to undergo surgery.  Without the
 surgery Tyson would die.
     While at Johns Hopkins the family hopes of finding a way to reduce or
 eliminate the need for surgery.
     The Benefit will be held on Saturday May 5, 2001 from 3:30 p.m. to
 5:30 p.m. at Faith Lutheran Church, 37635 Dequindre, Troy, Mich.  The cost is
 $10 for adults and $5 for children 10 and under.
 
     Additional donations and advanced tickets purchases are being accepted by
 mail to: Rochester Area Jaycees, P.O. Box 80161, Rochester, MI 48308.
 
     CONTACT:  Elspeth Galloway of Rochester Area Jaycees (248) 853-5632.
