Friends step up for cancer patient


Some of the Reeltown High School graduates (classes 1997-2001) are coming together to help a friend in need. They have formed the group, which is on Facebook, called Team Yvette Fighting Cervical Cancer. Yvette Creel has been diagnosed with Stage 4 Cervical Cancer. Her classmates are expressing their love and support, but also want to bring awareness to this disease.

A fundraiser has been organized. A co-ed softball tournament that will be held at The Tallassee Softball Complex on Friday, June 2. Opening ceremonies will begin at 5:30 with the national anthem, followed by the first pitch and a balloon release. The first game is scheduled for 6:00 p.m.

Team entry fees are $125. The rules will be the same as league rules for Tallassee Recreation Department co-ed softball. More information is available on the group's Facebook page.

May 26 is the deadline for teams to enter and for vendors to sign up. Anyone interested may contact Creel at 334-318-0384. All proceeds will go to Yvette Creel and family.
Yvette Creel’s number is 334-318-0384.
