Friends and family of the Rev. Dina Gardner, daughter of longtime Davis residents Barbara and Bill Greene, are raising funds to help her with mounting medical bills after she was diagnosed last year with a pleomorphic sarcoma.

Gardner is a Presbyterian minister and spiritual life coach in Marin County. She graduated from Davis High School in 1990 and was ordained at Davis Community Church in 1999.

She underwent surgery and 33 radiation treatments last year, but needs more medical intervention to fight this rare form of cancer, a news release said.

A fundraiser will run from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday, March 25, in Alexander Hall at the San Francisco Theological Seminary in San Anselmo.  Organizers are looking for donations of wine and items for the silent auction.

For more information about donating or attending the event, contact Karen Johnson at (530) 756-6657 or [email protected].

Those who would like to show their support with a contribution may go to “Help Heal the Rev!” at http://goo.gl/sFg18, or mail a check to: “Dina Gardner Medical Fund” (Tax ID #45-4463850), First Northern Bank, 434 Second St., Davis, CA 95616.

All proceeds will go towards Gardner’s medical expenses.
