SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A concert planned by a 9-year-old terminally ill girl in South Dakota will allow her to fulfill her wish of helping other children.
The Argus Leader reports (https://argusne.ws/1HxFCsh ) the event planned by Rebekah Spader, of Sioux Falls, raised enough funds Saturday to help at least one ill child.
Rebekah was diagnosed with a genetic nerve disorder at age 1. She was later diagnosed with a bone marrow failure disorder.
Rebekah survived a transplant, but her family decided against a needed second one. Her father, Tony Spader, says the family chose to “celebrate” her life.
Rebekah’s favorite singers, Christian artists Geoff Moore and Rachelle Hope, performed for a full high school auditorium.
Each ticket was $11. Tony Spader says that’s enough money to support the wish of at least one child.
