Sherman Kelsey is a disabled Vietnam veteran diagnosed with melanoma 
cancer.  He has received treatment at the Robert Dole VA facility; 
however, the melanoma has metastasized into the lungs and he can no 
longer tolerate conventional treatment.  His oncologist is recommending 
a drug trial.  The VA has approved funding for one limited consultation 
and two biopsies at MD Anderson in Houston but not travel, lodging or 
related expenses. Further consultations, testing and treatment would be 
self pay, in addition to lodging and travel.  Sherman worked part time 
as a handyman, but his ability to work is now limited.

Sherman is the husband of Wanda Kelsey, office manager for the 
Wellington Area Chamber of Commerce/CVB.

Our goal is to raise $5,000.00 to help with continued consultations, 
testing, treatment and other related expenses.

A fund has been established at Panhandle Federal Credit Union, 403 North 
Washington Ave., Wellington, Ks. 67152 attention Sherman Kelsey Medical 
Fund.
