Help the Higgins Family

My good friend and coworker, Aaron Higgins, recently got news that no parent ever wants to hear.  His 18 year old daughter, Karlee, was diagnosed with AML leukemia and will be in the hospital for the next 5 months receiving treatment.

During this time, Aaron will be missing a lot of work as he will be there to support Karlee, and the last thing any parent should have to worry about at a time like this is coming up with money to pay for bills and expenses.   Aaron's daughters, Karlee and Aubrey, are his life, and he is one of the most loving fathers I have ever known.

As Aaron should solely be focusing on being there for his family, I am hoping to raise enough money so that he can make up for lost income during this time and not have to worry about where the money will come from to pay for bills and support his daughters.  Any amount that you can donate would be a great help, and I know that he, Karlee, and Aubrey would be eternally grateful for the help.  Please keep the Higgins family in your thoughts and prayers.
