On the last day of February, AllOutdoor posted an article about Henry Repeating Arms making a large donation. To help pay for cancer treatment for a four-year-old girl from Indiana, Henry donated 55 special edition rifles. Since that article, the rifles went up for auction, raising over $40,000 in medical bill assistance for the Schevenius family.

Henry Repeating Arms Raises Over $40,000 for Milah’s Treatment
Milah Schevenius is a four-year-old girl who lives with her parents and two siblings in Indiana. She has been fighting kidney cancer and has gone through 42 weeks of chemo and radiation, along with numerous surgeries. She has bilateral Wilms’ Tumor, which is so rare, it only affects 6% of kidney cancer patients. With specialized care comes especially high medical bills. Henry Repeating Arms sought to help the Schevenius family, so they donated 55 special edition “Miss Milah’s Miracle” rifles. Each one, with a handpainted stock, was either sold or auctioned. These sales raised $40,660 and the guns sold out within three hours of going up for sale. The first serial number sold for a staggering $5,850.
