 BOULDER, CO
We have put this site up for Peter Berntsen a long time Boulder businessman, former manager at Kinsleys and the past 6 years the store manager of Front Range Anglers on Pearl Street.  For more than 50 years Peter has been a passionate fly fisherman. In December he was stricken in with Myelitis. The disease has mostly paralyzed him from the waist down resulting in limited control of his muscles and has rendered him to a wheelchair.  Peter is in multiple therapies, and making some progress. We have put this site together for Peter to get him mobile again! He needs continuous therapy, hand controls for his car, a new wheel chair and many other items to get his mobility and independence back. You can help!  Peter will be extremely grateful for anything you may be able to provide & forever thankful. Please help us Help Peter Get Mobile Again!                               Thank you for your support!
