The 2012 Bull Fry Recipient is the family of Amanda Yrkoski. Amanda is 17 years old and a senior at Fullerton High school. Amanda was admitted to a nonspecialist after a tumor was found on the back of their brain. Three MRI’s and a biopsy later revealed a cancerous inoperable mass. During the biopsy, the specialist believed to have removed it all; however another MRI revealed the cancerous material was still present. A second tumor has been discovered and Amanda has been diagnosed with stage four cancer. Amanda's younger sister, Sam, has had a series of violent asthma attacks and seizures causing the family to be in and out of numerous hospitals and emergency. The Yrkoski's are a low income family that has a farming operation as their main source of income. The family makes frequent trips Lincoln and Omaha from Fullerton (2-2.5 hour trip one way) for Amanda's chemo treatments.
The event features a meal which includes: bull fries (rocky mountain oysters), hamburgers, hot dogs, sides, and drinks. Entertainment for the event features inflatable games, a dunk tank mechanical bull and a rock wall. This event is a perfect family event and we invite you to come on out, have a ton of fun with family and friends, while supporting a very deserving family! See you there!
