YANKTON, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - A benefit will be held this weekend to raise money for a family in need after a woman facing medical decline ended up in an assisted living facility.

Karmen Broer is a 46-year-old mother of two.

We first introduced you to Broer in 2019 when she underwent a successful liver transplant.

In August of 2021, her husband, Andrew, noticed she had been seeing things that were not there and saying things that did not make sense.

Her mental state worsened by the day. She was in and out of the hospital with many various medical issues, including low levels of sodium.

On November 12, Karmen was admitted into the Avera Sacred Heart Majestic Bluffs assisted living facility in Yankton while doctors tried to pin down exactly what was causing her to be in the state she is in.

A benefit will be held at Cheers Pizza Plus on Saturday, Feb. 19, located at 310 Walnut Street in Yankton to support the family as they continue to pay for her ongoing care.

The doors will open at 4 p.m. and admission is $15.

Just Relax Comedy Crew will perform at 7 p.m. and there will also be music by Tyler Tietsort.

Face painting will be conducted by Amy Sharar from 4-7 p.m. and there will also be a silent auction, spaghetti feed, and pie-throwing.
