Benefit Planned For Yankton Woman

Benefit Planned For Yankton Woman

A benefit will be held this weekend to raise money for a Yankton family in need after a woman facing medical decline ended up in an assisted living facility.

Karmen Boer is a 46-year-old mother of two. In August of 2021, her husband Andrew Broer noticed she had been seeing things that were not there and saying things that did not make sense. Every day her mental state worsened. She was in and out of the hospital with many various medical issues, including low levels of sodium.

Back in November, Boer was admitted into the Majestic Bluffs assisted living facility in Yankton while doctors continue to try and pin down exactly what is causing her to be in the state that she is in.

A benefit will be held at Cheers Pizza Plus in downtown Yankton on Saturday support the family as they continue to pay for her ongoing care.

The doors will open at 4 p.m. and admissions is $15. Just Relax Comedy Crew will perform at 7 p.m. Face painting will be conducted by Amy Sharar from 4-7 p.m. There will also be a silent auction, spaghetti feed, and pie-throwing.
