Fish Fry to benefit local student

The Wilson Post

Michaels Caf in Lebanon is hosting a Fish Fry to raise money for a worthy cause this Saturday from 4-7 p.m.

The beneficiary of the Fish Fry fundraiser is the family of 13-year-old Mt. Juliet Middle School student Jaden Fox. Fox was recently diagnosed with Large B cell Lymphoma of the Mediastinum.

Longtime family friend Stephanie Bost said that Foxs mother, Layla, who is also an educator in Davidson County, took a leave of absence from work to be with her daughter during chemotherapy treatments. Jaden will undergo multiple round of chemotherapy in the coming months that require five-day hospital stays each time.

One hundred percent of the proceeds from this will go to the family. The response has been overwhelming. Everybody loves this family and loves Jaden, Bost said.

Dinner will include catfish or chicken tenders, white beans, cole slaw, hush puppies and a drink for $10. Bost said that to-go boxes will also be available for those who do not wish to dine-in. Tickets are available in advance by emailing Bost at or at the door on the night of the event.
