We are sad to report that Susan Edwards, a reporter at WWL since December 2007, is suffering from an aggressive form of liver cancer and is currently undergoing treatment.

A fundraiser to help Susan with her considerable medical and travel expenses has been scheduled for Friday, Dec. 18 starting at 7 pm at Fat Harry's, 4330 St. Charles Avenue.

The night will feature a wide array of raffle and live auction items as well as music by the James Rivers Movement. We are encouraging all of our members and the general public to support Susan in this very critical time of need.

A bank account has been set up for donations, but the organizers of the event would truly appreciate a strong turnout for Susan on the 18th, as we rally together to support one of our own. Susan is only in her early 30s, and we want this night to be an event that truly makes a difference for her. Please feel free to spread the word about this event to your colleagues, family and friends.

To Donate: Go to any Capitol One Bank and donate to the: Susan A. Edwards Donation Fund. You can mail your check to: Capitol One Bank, 313 Carondelet St., New Orleans, LA 70130
