This Saturday, October 1st, there’s going to be a benefit fundraiser for Brynleigh Steimel, a young McPherson resident who has already undergone one heart transplant and is now in desperate need of another.

“She is a three-year-old heart patient who has been having complications and is back on the transplant list,” explained Kelsey Kagle, a family friend helping to organize the fundraiser for the benefit of Brynleigh and her family.  

“We will be doing the fundraiser at 1101 W. First St. here in McPherson at Puppy Love,” Kagle said. “It’s a come-and-go hamburger feed and bake sale from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm.”

A $5 donation is suggested at the event with all proceeds going to benefit Brynleigh and to help with her medical care.  

Brynleigh is currently on life support in a Denver Hospital while on the waitlist for another heart transplant.
