Tue 4-9-2019

(Spencer)-- A fundraiser for Storm Lake native Jaci Hermstad will be held in Spencer on Saturday (April 13th). 

Hermstad was diagnosed with ALS Disease in February. Her twin sister Alex died of the disease in 2011 at the age of 16. 

Jaci Hermstad was most recently employed by Spencer Ag Center of Spencer as a field marketer. 

The fundraiser will be held at Spencer Ag Center at 1901 East Eighth Street in Spencer Saturday from 11:00 am until 1:00 pm.

Jaci's family is trying to raise money for an experimental drug that could potentially save her life. A Go Fund Me page has also been established to raise funds for those efforts.
