BATON ROUGE (NBC33) — The LSU Beta Xi Chapter of Pi Sigma Epsilon will be selling past-year gameday t-shirts for $5 on March 18 and 19, from 11 a.m.-4 p.m., in Free Speech Alley on LSU’s campus.
A portion of the proceeds will go to the Kelly O’Mahoney Cancer Treatment Fund.
According to Maris Caldwell, vice president-elect of Public Relations for the Beta Xi Chapter, O’Mahoney is a Southeast Louisiana local who was diagnosed with a rare type of brain cancer, anaplastic astrocytoma, on Aug. 28, 2013.
“Kelly [O’Mahoney] has had two brain surgeries and both radiation and chemotherapy treatments,” Caldwell said. “Unfortunately, her tumor is still growing and doctors believe her best chance for survival is a clinical trial at MD Anderson hospital in Houston. Insurance has denied them this treatment, and the O'Mahoney family is having to raise more than $200,000 to have Kelly included in the clinical trial.”
