Michelle Peeler of Portageville is dealing with something not well known to the medical community and completely foreign to most of us. Her brother Gene Kelley says she went misdiagnosed for years so the medical bills are piling up. Plus she has to have her surgeries in New York and that is far out the network of allowable docs for their insurance. Kelley tells KZIM KSIM Michelle has been diagnosed with Chiari Malformation.
Kelley is holding a benefit concert at the Venue on the 13th. Doors open at 6pm. Tickets are 25$ A cash bar and concessions are available. He says Saving Abel will perform with Special guests Blameshift and Soulswitch. All proceeds after the bands are compensated will assist Michelle and her family. She has two small children and is unable to work most of the time. Michelle has been fighting this mysterious illness for 6 years.
