DeForge benefit planned
MARQUETTE — A benefit for 26-year-old stroke survivor Zac DeForge will take place Sunday, Nov. 11 from 4 to 7 p.m. at 130 W. Washington St. in Marquette in the Masonic Banquet Room.
DeForge, who is originally from Atlantic Mine and lives in Marquette, was on his way to stand in a friend’s wedding in Wisconsin on Aug. 28. When he arrived at his girlfriend’s house, he asked for ibuprofen for an intense headache. The headache turned into a loss of function on the right side of his body and slurred speech. He was rushed to the hospital, where it was confirmed DeForge had suffered a stroke in the left hemisphere of his brain caused by a blood clot.
The event will feature a spaghetti dinner and raffles. For more information, visit the benefit’s Facebook event page at https://www.facebook.com/events/615827495479752/.
