A fundraiser and silent auction is taking place to benefit Meaghan Johnson from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m. Nov. 17 at the Stonehouse in Nevada City. A $15 dollar donation is recommended at the door for a night that will include music from local DJs Chris Depesa and Tyler Digital Agent.

After suffering a Grand Mal seizure, Meaghan was diagnosed with Stage III Meningioma brain cancer at the age of 19. During her first treatment of chemotherapy, her heart suffered a rare allergic reaction, putting her in a coma for two months. Ironically, Meaghan could not be covered by disability insurance unless she accepted more chemotherapy, which she refused.

Since her coma eight years ago, she has participated in numerous alternative medicine practices from baking soda injections to Vitamin C intravenous drips. The cancer has now progressed to Stage V, and after much struggle, she can no longer afford her current treatments. Unfortunately Meaghan has no family to depend on since her mother’s death and refuses to ask for help from anyone; therefore, her friends are reaching out to the community to help her in the continuation of alternative medical treatments.

For information, or to make a donation, call (530) 277-9360 or email
