Spring Hill, Florida (August 1, 2014) – Pizza Villa & Restaurant will hold a fundraiser at both of its locations to benefit 19 year old cancer survivor, Kasey Kupcik. A year ago, Kasey was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. On August 12 from 11 am to 9 pm, Pizza Villa will donate 20% of the restaurant sales of its Spring Hill location at 13122 Spring Hill Drive, Spring Hill, Florida 34609, to Kasey.
On August 11 the restaurant will donate 20% of its sales from its Brooksville restaurant location at 7038 Coastal Boulevard, Brooksville, Florida 34613.
Kasey just completed her final chemotherapy treatment on July 29 and has been again admitted to Florida State University. She begins class on August 22 where she will continue her studies in Information Communications Technology. Kasey graduated from Central High School in May 2013 with her high school diploma and an AA degree from PHSC. One week before leaving for FSU she was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. At this writing she is considered cancer free, but the medical bills have exceeded far beyond what insurance allows.
Kasey has made local headlines over the years – once for her achievement of being elected Florida president of DECA (Distributive Education Clubs of America). Then, her battle with cancer became viral over the Internet and she again drew media attention when her former classmates came together to support her in her fight.
Kasey will soon be featured in Horizon Homecare’s entry in the Pink Gloves dance video contest. Kasey is the featured cancer survivor to sky dive in the video.
A fund has been established to help Kasey with medical bills and to get her on her feet when she starts college at Florida State University. Those who wish to contribute to Kasey’s fund can send checks to Mr. & Mrs. Tom Kupcik, 14054 Amero Lane, Spring Hill, Florida 34609. Makes checks payable to Kasey Kupcik and in the memo write “Treatment” or send checks for Kasey to any Bank of America, account #229042481659. Or …. come on down to Pizza Villa on either of the days mentioned above.
