Friends and family gathered at the Eagle's Club in Grand Rapids tonight for a spaghetti dinner to raise money for a Nashwauk woman with a very rare brain tumor.

Eleven years ago, Bobbi Bohman started experiencing intense headaches.

After being let down by a series of doctors for over a year telling her she only had migraines, she eventually was diagnosed with a rare brain tumor.

Tonight the Grand Rapids community gathered to help fund Bohman's medical and travel expenses to the Duke University Medical Center in Durham, N.C.

Donations can be made to Bobbi Duke's Fund at Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union in Grand Rapids.
