"Help My Dad"

Hello, my name is Daniel Trautner. Just last week my father got rushed to Grand Rapids in a helicopter for immediate surgery on his left leg. What caused this was an infection on his left ankle which spread up his leg, and into his blood stream. This surgery was life threatening and I am relieved that he is recovering nicely. Due to further information coming in, the donations will cover medical not covered by insurance including a prosthetic leg if needed. A prosthetic leg is pretty expensive. The initial fundraising goal is $5,000. In the picture, my dad is the one in the center and I'm on the right. Please help me reach my goal for him. Thank you.
