Chase Otteson’s Medical Relief Fund

$46,970 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 628 people in 8 months
Created December 4, 2017


























On Saturday December 2nd my sweet 12 year old nephew, Chase Otteson, his brother Hunter 13, and their friend Nate, also 12 years old, were all injured in a tragic fire accident. Chase and his friend Nate were burned badly. Chase is burned over 40% of his body. As of right now he is heavily sedated and in ICU and is fighting for his life. His road to recovery is going to be very very long. He is expected to be in the burn unit once out of ICU for well over a month and will need numerous surgeries. Right now his blood pressure is stable, his temperature has came down a bit, and his white blood count is not showing any signs of infection. But we all know that this can change in an instance with burn victims. These next few days will be the toughest as we really do not know the extent of his injuries as of yet. Please pray for my sweet nephew. Chase enjoys playing sports, hunting, camping, mining with his dad, and overall is a very active little boy. He is a very kind hearted, thoughtful, and loving. He always has a smile on his face and something thoughtful and funny to say. He is the middle child of three boys. He is so loved by all of his family. We are all praying that he pulls through and makes a strong recovery. This fund will help assist in the massive amounts of medical bills that will be coming in as well as future medical surgeries and therapy he will need and any financial obligations that come about while Trenton is out of work. Thank you for reading this and please say a prayer for him.

Hi everyone! Just a short update. Chase has been doing physical therapy up to 3 times or more a week now. He is running track for his school now and loves it. He is such a strong kid mentally and this is only helping him excel. He does go in for a procedure tomorrow. He will be put under and he is getting injections in his neck to break up scar tissue. So please keep him in your prayers that it goes as planned and that he feels no pain afterwards. As far as fundraising for Nate for those that are asking he still has a go fund me account set up of his own. I will share the link above. His mom Kristen has been putting updates on there. He still has a long road ahead of him. Please keep him in your prayers and donate if you can to his go fund me account. They can sure use all that they can get both through prayers and funding. Thank you to all who have supported, followed, cared for, and loved these two families. YOU are helping them get through this.

Hi everyone this is Tandi, Trenton’s sister. I have been the one posting updates on Chase and I wanted to share a couple things with you all following Chases recovery. We are far from being “out of the woods” with Chase. Although some of the updates may sound like he is doing good, in which he is, they are such small baby steps. With your help, we've raised a little over $43,000, but we were informed today that just his life flight to the hospital plus the deductible will eat up an enormous amount of the money already made through go fund me. This does not include almost a whole month in ICU and now the burn unit. Trenton has been at the hospital every single day with Chase and hasn’t been able to do any mining which helps to support the family with everyday financial obligations, and they are beginning to feel the strain. I do want to Thank everyone for all of the love and support that has been given so far and for all of the fundraisers and such taking place on the boys behalf. We are so very grateful for everything and so thankful for such amazing people in our lives and all across the nation. Please share this again and again, and get this out there, and please keep Chase and his family in your thoughts and prayers. We love you so much ❤️❤️❤️❤️
