Friends of a Lodi High junior afflicted with a rare ailment are raising funds to help pay for her medical treatments.
Ana Prada is battling Lymphomatoid Granulomatosis, a rare pulmonary disease. Houston Middle School in Acampo will hold a benefit dance for Prada today, from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., with all proceeds going to her family.
Although the dance is only for Houston students, the general public can send donations to the Ana Prada Be Strong Fund through Bank of Stockton at 120 W. Walnut St. in Lodi.
