Last night, my brother and co-worker Nate Green fell off a high ladder while changing the batteries in their smoke alarm at home. The fall broke his back and severed his spinal cord and he is facing many long months of recovery and rehab to adjust to life without the use of his legs.
Nate is an active dad of two little boys (with another baby on the way). He loves to fish, camp, go mushrooming, and many other outdoors adventures with his boys as well as being a great handy brother and husband. Beyond this, I have worked with Nate for a number of years and he is one of the most reliable and hardworking guys I know. He is already asking about work and worried about not being there and I can say for sure that he is going to be very missed.
As you can imagine, his partner and family are going through a lot right now and this experience will have a big financial impact for a long time. It would be wonderful to be able to cover their living expenses for the next month or two so his family can be focused on keeping Nate well and recovering without too much additional stress.
If you would like to help in other ways (childcare, meals, rides) and other contributions would be most welcome and appreciated. Thank you.
