P-R PHOTO/SUSAN TOBIAS Inoperable lung cancer and a recent setback have curtailed Dominique Hoffman's plans to travel to California for the birth of her first grandchild, who is due in July. Family and friends are planning a fundraiser on June 29 to raise money to fly the baby home with his father and mother, Justin and Merritt Sanger. Instrumental in the effort are Dominique's sister, Renee Gauthier (left) and childhood friend Sandy Fassett (right). Dominique, holding her dogs, Cooper and Prince, said she wants the day to be about family and kids having fun together.
