Great Falls MSNA helps one of their own, Ed Dea.

Eager "garage salers" were waiting at 8:00 am Saturday March 25th to rummage through all of the donated goods. Great Falls Area Montana Student Nurses Association (MSNA) organized a garage sale and worked hard to make it happen. Donated items for the sale came from students, faculty, staff, friends, and friends of friends.

The sale did not officially start until 9:00 am but that was no problem, especially because all the proceeds are benefiting Ed Dea. He is a Montana nurse for over 16 years and was diagnosed with promyleocytic leukemia November 2005. Ed Dea is well known in Great Falls and known as a kind, tender, gentle soul. He has worked as an ER/Flight Nurse for Benefis Healthcare and continues to work there part-time. He is presently with MSU-Bozeman, Great Falls Campus, as an Adjunct Instructor.

Great Falls MSNA raised $1001.00 from the garage sale and donations.
