COLUMBIA CITY â€” Pam Loe, of Columbia City, has been diagnosed with stage three ovarian cancer.
A car wash will be held today at Carriage House Flowers, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., to help raise money to cover some of her treatment expenses. The benefit will accept free will donations in exchange for the wash.
Loe currently works at the Whitley County YMCA.
Brandi Kreps, Loeâ€™s daughter, said, â€śShe greets everyone at the Y with a smile. Sheâ€™s a sweet person.â€ť
The car wash was the idea of Brandiâ€™s son, Jaegar.
â€śHe got to talking with a friend and decided on the car wash. He just wanted to find a way to help,â€ť said Brandi.
Jaegar is 16 and will be starting as a sophomore at Columbia City High School.
Brandi said the family takes care of each other, so she wasnâ€™t surprised when Jaegar wanted to help in some way.
When Brandi became ill, Loe opened her home up to Brandi and her family.
Since Loe helped Brandi when she needed it, Brandi hopes to return the favor.
