First Christian Church hosts luau to raise money for local man with cancer

Paul Craft was diagnosed with prostate cancer in April 2016

A Sioux City church hosted their annual luau this afternoon, with entertainment featuring members from the Sioux City Island Fellowship.

This luau is dedicated to Paul Craft, a Sioux City man who was diagnosed with prostate cancer last Spring.

In the next few weeks, Paul will travel to Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota for radiation treatment. The First Christian Church on Jackson Street is helping Paul and his family raise money for his treatment.

"I want to thank them very much for everything that they've done. It's been very helpful," said Paul Craft.

"The church has had them in their prayers. This was a total surprise to me. It was wonderful," said Linda Craft, Paul's mom.

"We're a very small church but we have a lot of love and a huge heart, very generous people," said Deanne Hanson, church secretary at First Christian Church.

If you would like to help Paul, you can make a donation and send it to Paul Craft Mayo Fund, Municipal Credit Union, 103 South Fairmount Sioux City, IA 51106.
