CUMBERLAND – A fund-raiser is planned for Saturday, April 28, to help Cammie (Howell) Almeida, a 36-year-old Cumberland resident fighting lung and liver cancer, which doctors tell her is incurable.

The dinner event, planned by Almeida’s former Bank of America and Merrill Lynch coworkers to assist Almeida and her family, will be held at McFadden’s at 52 Pine St. in Providence.

The event starts at 6 p.m. and will feature music by Hartmann & Macey, The Doubtful Guests, and Yeti & The Trolls. Tickets cost $20 in advance, and $25 at the door.

Almeida is married to Marco Almeida, who graduated from Cumberland High School in 1998, and they have a 2-year-old son, Brayden.

This is not Almeida’s first bout with cancer. After being diagnosed at age 28, she beat stage 3 and stage 4 colon cancer.

“Days when she undergoes aggressive chemotherapy treatments are her most difficult, yet she continues to be a strong woman dedicated to her family and friends, and still fighting her cancer with all the strength she can muster,” friend Beth Small said.

Small said she is seeking prize donations to be raffled off at the event, with all proceeds going to the family.

Becoming a fan of Anchor Counseling Center on Facebook will earn money for the Almeidas. For each new fan the Lincoln business acquires until April 28, it will donate $1 to the family, up to $2,000.
