WALLA WALLA -- An account has been set up to help defray costs for longtime resident Herschel Fullerton, who is undergoing treatment in Portland for cancer.
Fullerton, who co-manages Golden West Estates, has been active in the community on a number of levels, said family friend Leon Olsen. He has served on numerous committees and volunteered for community projects.
Fullerton is receiving radiation treatment at the Portland Veterans Affairs Medical Center. The hospital has no setup to house Fullerton, nor his family, during the outpatient treatment; thus housing and other expenses are rapidly piling up, Olsen said.
He and other residents of Golden West Estates have started a benefit fund for Fullerton at Baker Boyer Bank. "To help with day-to-day expenses," Olsen said.
Others wishing to contribute may do so at any Baker Boyer branch.
