A KITIMAT man is raffling off a signed Robert Louongo hockey jersey to defray medical expenses stemming from his young daughter’s illness.

Keelee Lampreau, 3, has a constricted opening down her throat, making it difficult for food to get to her stomach, says father Ken.

She’s seen the pediatrician here and she’s been down to BC Children’s Hospital,” said Lampreau today while setting up his ticket sales table at Save on Foods.

He’s hoping a series of tests will lead to a course of action to help Keelee.

Lampreau bought the jersey at a discount from Sonny’s Collectables in Terrace. He keeps the price tag on to show ticket buyers the jersey’s value – more than $500.

Lampreau sells tickets in Prince Rupert, in Terrace and in Kitimat.

Most of the family’s expenses to date have been in transportation, lodging and food.
