Benefit for Cancer Patient

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

Dozens of people gathered at First Interstate Bank Operations Center to raise money for a cancer patient and her family on Sunday.

The benefit was held Saturday for April Kenaston. She was diagnosed with a rare type of cancer, and had to travel to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota for treatment. The event included a silent auction, food, and live music.

April's brother, Nolan Snyder, says it's humbling to see the community to support his sister.

"The amount of support that they've received throughout the process has been incredible. The generosity of the community has been fantastic. It's much more than I anticipated showing up today," said Snyder.

If you would like to help the Kenaston family by making a donation, you can do so at any First Interstate Bank location.
