OPELOUSAS, La. (KLFY) — The community is rallying together to support an Opelousas couple who are both battling cancer.

Terri St. Amand Trahan was first diagnosed with cancer in 2015, and has faced this diagnosis two more times since then. Then, in 2022, her husband, similarly named Terry Trahan, was given the same scary diagnosis.

Now, family and friends are hosting a fundraiser to help pay medical costs and living expenses for the couple. They’re selling plate lunches on Sunday, Jan. 22 from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. Plate lunches will include pastalaya, white beans and bread and will be sold for $10.

Lunches can be picked up at the following locations:

  • 110 Eighth Ave., Krotz Springs
  • 1142 Hwy. 743, Opelousas
