Talya Simha Fanger-Vexler will be the featured speaker at a Hadassah Southern Arizona luncheon on Sunday, April 17, 11:30 a.m. at the Country Club of La Cholla.

Fanger-Vexler will relate the story of courage and fortitude that took her from being injured as a passenger in a motorcycle crash at age 22 to her ultimate decision, three pain-filled years later, to have her foot amputated. Her journey includes a Jewish burial for her foot, attended by members of a local congregation.

The cost of the luncheon is $18 for members, $20 for nonmembers. To RSVP, mail a check payable to Hadassah to Ruth Beecher, 7855 W. Morning Light Way, Tucson, 85743 by April 8. For more information, including menu choices, call Ruth at 579-3768.
