Special fundraiser to benefit boy battling cancer

Operation Iron Man Markus was created for a Comox Valley boy undergoing radiation and chemotherapy treatment for brain cancer.

TEN-YEAR-OLD Markus is a Comox Valley boy who's undergoing radiation and chemotherapy treatment.

Operation Iron Man Markus was created by family and friends of Markus Yule, a 10-year-old Comox Valley boy who is undergoing radiation and chemotherapy treatment in Vancouver for brain cancer.

Markus’ parents, Mark and Yvonne, have had to drop everything so that they can be by Markus’ side through this difficult time.

Many fundraisers have been organized, and one very special one will take place this Saturday at the Union Street Grill and Grotto at 6 p.m.

Entry will be by donation, and there will be different prize draws throughout the night.

David Somers and the Celtic Cargo Cult will perform for this night of awesome food, awesome music and an awesome cause. If you can’t make this event, but still want to donate there is an online donation site that has been set up for Markus and his family.

Donations can be placed at www.youcaring.com/other/operation-iron-man-markus/98682.
