Mike and his wife Kris traveled with Olivia to Rochester, MN, to begin treatment. Clyde is the electrical and instrumentation supervisor at Dry Fork Station near Gillette, WY.
His co-workers at Dry Fork Station know the Clyde family has a long road ahead of travel, medical bills and more.
They got together with the Clydes’ friends and family to hold a benefit dinner and silent auction on Dec. 7. All told, they raised more than $20,000!
“We wanted the community to pull together to help in any way possible to make this as easy as it can be on the family,” says Rhonda Chapman, Dry Fork Station account analyst I.The event was held at the Sage Valley Junior High. In addition, Sweet Frog, a local frozen yogurt shop, held a day which 10 percent from each sale went to Olivia’s fund.
The Gillette College Girls Basketball team signed autographs, took pictures, and met with fans for a couple hours in the afternoon.
There is a fund set up in Olivia’s name, if you’d like to contribute. It’s the Olivia Clyde Cancer Benefit at Wells Fargo.
