MEDINA, Minn. - The Pay It Forward Fund, a non-profit organization that helps patients pay their bills while they undergo treatment for breast and women's cancers, will hold a fundraiser in Medina to raise money for the cause.

The Pay It Forward Fund was founded in 2005 by a breast cancer survivor. Since then, it has helped patients buy groceries, pay their mortgages, heat their homes, keep their lights and their water on, and repair their cars so they can drive to chemo.

The organization will hold its 9th Annual Casino Night on Friday, February 7 at the Medina Ballroom. KARE 11's Tim McNiff and Rena Sarigianopoulos will MC.

You can register for tickets at a cost of $85 on the Pay It Forward website.

Breast cancer survivor and Pay It Forward Board Member, Joann Simon visited KARE 11 Sunrise with more on the benefit, and the prizes available for attendees, including a Minnesota Twins Suite or a vacation raffle.
