Dr. Thomas Utt, an orthodontist from Walla Walla, plans to incorporate a fundraising effort for one of his Wallowa clients when the doctor and staff make their regularly scheduled visit to Enterprise June 1.

Brandy Starmer, 16, is the client Utt’s staff plans to sell “Living on a Prayer” T-shirts for that day. Starmer is battling cancer, having had a malignant tumor the size of an orange removed from her brain April 30, 2011.

Utt’s spokesman Renee Helm says the doctor’s staff will treat about 60 patients June 1 at the doctor’s satellite office in Enterprise at 204 Residence Street where Dr. Jason Follett practices.

She says an additional 30-40 T-shirts have been printed for that day with the possibility of printing more if there is a need.
