TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI)—One local woman is celebrating life after overcoming a debilitating illness. For the past five years, 29-year-old Alix Gerringer has been an RN at IU Health Arnett.

Earlier in the year, Gerringer caught Pneumonia which later led to sepsis which resulted in quadruple limb loss by amputation. After more than 4 months in the hospital, 7 surgeries and receiving 35 units of blood, Gerringer is back with her family.

Her coworkers have stepped up and created a series of fundraisers. The money raised will go towards helping Gerringer with medical needs and bills.

Over the course of several weeks ahead fundraisers such as a Benefit Softball Tournament at Faith East in Lafayette on Saturday, September 26th from 1pm - 7pm. 

At the softball event concessions will be available. There will also be donated items for sale at the event and there will a variety of door prizes. 

The group has also put together raffle baskets ranging from $25 to $350. Tickets are between five to ten dollars and those tickets are being sold on Facebook. 

Volunteers are welcome at the event. For more information or any questions about volunteering send an email to all4alix@yahoo.com
