GRAETTINGER - The Shayla Bee Fund made a stop at The Hillcrest Golf & Country Club in Graettinger Tuesday night to meet the 70th Shayla Bee family, Jeff and Brittany Petrich and their 18-month-old daughter, Joscelyn.

Joscelyn has been fighting premature lung disease, respiratory distress and pulmonary hypertension after being born prematurely. The Petrichs have endured a misdiagnosis of cerebral palsey, traveling to Sioux Falls weekly, and they've scheduled a trip to the Mayo Clinic in May and have an appointment at the Shriner's Hospital in July.

Grandparents are Ed and Kristy Funston of Estherville.
