Benefit to help Puhlmans with expenses

Life-long struggle ... Two boys in the same local family have the condition of colitis. Each year, around 30,000 cases are diagnosed and added to the estimated 1.4 million cases in America. From left: Braden, Lacy and Blake Puhlman.

"We thought it was just the flu," recalled Lacy Puhlman when her older son, 11-year-old Blake, originally became sick in late January. That illness grew worse, fearfully worse.

After finding no conclusive results from the many tests, the doctors at the Philip Health Services and at Rapid City Regional Hospital referred the Puhlmans to specialist Dr. Jon Vanderhoof of Omaha, Neb. Vanderhoof flies to Rapid City once a month to help people who have extreme digestive tract problems.

Again, many personal bests were set and champions were crowned both individually and as a team.

Philip's three competitors did not qualify as a team in this high powered "A" division race, but our girls all gave great personal efforts. Seventh grader Holly Iwan battled from the start with Todd County's Kyle Marshall for the number one position.
