Jillena Avery Kellogg  TRAVERSE CITY, MI
Nick Avery is a war veteran of Desert Storm and Iraqi Freedom who is in a rapid physical and mental state of decline since 2009. The V.A. has had difficulties with finding a diagnosis and treatment. While the V.A will pay for Nick's care within it's system, we are financially obligated for the care he receives outside the system. With each day that passes the urgency grows, we need help finding the doctors and treatment that will save this great father of two, son, and war hero. Please donate what you can. Every dollar counts and goes directly to helping Nick. For more information about Nick's story please read his blog here. fight4nick.wordpress.com

Thank you so much for all the donations. They will be used for Nick's care. Nick's appt at the Amen clinic in Virginia and travel expenses came to about 5K, so treatment, diagnostics, testing outside of the VA comes out of pocket. Nick's family appreciates your kindness and generosity. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

I was so sorry to hear about Nick’s heart-breaking struggles. I went to Howe Military School with Nick and I played football and baseball with him there. He is great guy, who was always calm and collected. I always admired him for his motivated attitude and ability to smile through anything. I wanted to tell you, your entire family and Nick how much I and my family appreciate his service to our Nation as a Marine. I must say from what I remember of Nick, his dedication to serve and willingness to go into harm’s way do not surprise me in the least. I’m sorry we can’t make it to the golf benefit, but I wanted to make sure he and his family knows that we care and we wish you all the best. Semper Fidelis, Dan Galvin Howe ‘84

We are sorry that we cannot attend Nick's fundraiser. We have an out of town obligation but we hope this helps with expenses and Nick's treatment.
