Medical account set up for Emperor at Umpqua Bank

GRANGEVILLE – Local resident Trudie Emperor was diagnosed with a lump in her right thyroid in October. She had a biopsy and was scheduled for pre-op in Lewiston when she was told that without lack of adequate insurance coverage she would have to come up with $7,000 for the surgery.

To help Emperor reach this goal and have surgery, an account has been set up at Umpqua Bank in Grangeville. Anyone can donate; the medical account is under her name.
