Thief botches Tacoma woman's life-saving auction

Money doesn’t usually matter much to Cindi Hayes, but this time it’s a matter of life or death. After 13 years battling chronic lymphocytic leukemia, doctors told her in August that a bone marrow transplant was her last chance. Faced with the procedure and related costs estimated at $600,000, Hayes and her family began saving every penny, seeking donations and collecting items for their big fund raiser – an auction Saturday at the Tacoma Elks Club.
