Pas­ta din­ner helps cancer fight

L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

If ever there was a good rea­son to over­load on carbs, a spa­ghet­ti din­ner ta­king place to­mor­row night in St. La­zare is it.

Mi­chelle Lo­ba­ton, 25, is bat­tling a rare and cost­ly form of cancer. Ac­cor­ding to Nan­cy Le­wis, who has or­ga­ni­zed Pas­ta For a Cure, being held Thurs­day Dec. 10 at Bis­tro Ca­fé Anis & Mar­jo­laine, 2027 che­min Sain­teAn­gé­lique in Saint-La­zare, Lo­ba­ton must pay for ex­pen­sive new drugs not al­ways co­ve­red un­der Que­bec’s health plan.

Le­wis says Lo­ba­ton, a mem­ber of St. La­zare’s ex­ten­ded eques­trian fa­mi­ly, is phy­si­cal­ly figh­ting a bat­tle with An­gio­sar­co­ma, but that the com­mu­ni­ty can help with other as­pects of the fight.

Lo­ba­ton was diag­no­sed on her 24th bir­th­day.
