Revelstokians dug deep to help Kendra Brown, the young woman dying of a rare cancer.

Tanya Secord, who helped organize last Friday’s fund-raising event at Cooper’s, says it raised over $8,400.

Kendra is dying of a rare cancer and her friends are raising money to help her build some happy memories for very young daughters and help offset their living expenses as her husband Larry Wiberg has left work to spend her remaining time with her.
