A benefit for 36-year-old Anthony Giglio is scheduled to take place in February of 2007 to help cover medical expenses related to Giglio’s treatment of a rare disorder.

Three years ago Giglio was diagnosed with chronic pancreatitis, caused by a blood disease known as hyperlipidemia. Several surgeries and other treatments have created an extensive pile of medical bills for the uninsured resident.

Donations are being accepted prior to the February event and can be forwarded to the First Security Trust and Savings Bank in Elmwood Park. For additional information call 708-456-1589.
