Christina Olinghouse is a nurse in the Family Birth Center at Rogue Regional, on October 10th she suffered a brainstem stroke and was hospitalized for several weeks.

Her husband, Ben, a Captain with Cal Fire, hasn’t left her side since and neither has been working.

Her friend and co-worker, Julianne Keller, felt something needed to be done.

“Sending somebody flowers isn’t going to do anything to change their life and she needs something more┬áthan just flowers to look at or more than just a card,” Julianne said.

A LuLaRoe clothing sale, silent auction, and raffle have been set up in their honor. All proceeds from the silent auction and raffle, as well as a portion of proceeds from the clothing sale, will go to the family.

The fundraiser will be this Thursday the 15th from 4:30 to 8:30 at the Jackson County Expo in the Mace building.
