We Need Your Help

Those of you who know us, and know Erik, know what a strong, driven, passionate, dedicated man my husband is. He has served his country for over 20 years and recently has been diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. This has been a shock and surprise to us and our family. The dedication that he has to his military career and his personal life has come to a complete stop,  so that we may focus on his serious illness.  He has to go through four sets of chemotherapy which are very aggressive treatments, with hopes to continue to a stem cell transplant that will take up to six months to recover from. This will be a long process and we are going to be struggling with many things. Most importantly, is Erik’s health and well being. We are asking for donations for assistance with bills, medical expenses, and any unforeseen expenses that will pop up during this process.

We are asking for strong prayers and support from all who know us and all who just feel the need to help. 


Update: Erik received his stem cell transplant and is in recovery now. He was able to come home, back to Spokane, WA from Seattle at the end of September. We have had good and bad days, struggles with medications, and some complications here and there. At this time he is in a good place with recovery with hopes to continue to full recovery. He gets very tired and weak, but at least he is still with us. Please continue to send strong prayers
