Sale planned to benefit patient
A bake and rummage sale is planned for 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at NorthSound Physical Therapy, 27500 102nd Ave. NW, Stanwood, to benefit Troy Osborn, a Lake Goodwin resident fighting cancer.
Troy and his wife Sara, both 23, have an eight-month-old daughter, Savanna. Sara is a receptionist at NorthSound Physical Therapy’s Marysville clinic.
Because of his illness, Troy is unable to work at his normal job in quality control for Rinker Materials in Everett, and his short-term disability insurance will end soon.
Anyone who would like to donate items for the rummage sale is asked to bring them to NorthSound today.
