Lions Club comes to the aid of local family with 13 year old Williams Syndrome Girl

Main Street Los Gatos: San Jose Mercury News:

"The Los Gatos Lions Club is raising money to help the family of a local woman who died this week from cancer.

Michelle Hargett Beebee, a graduate of Los Gatos High, was a single working mom, studying to be a teacher, when she was diagnosed in September with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. It was too late for any possible surgical success, and she died Monday at age 43 while in hospice care.

Beebee's parents, Carol and Joe Hargett, will become the primary caregivers for her children, sons Austin, 16, and Alex, 10, and a daughter, Aubrey, 13, who has Williams syndrome, a chromosomal disorder."
