Hello everyone. My name is Lauren Graves, and I am setting up this account in regards to my boyfriend's brother, Blake. In terms of distributing the money directly to Blake & Niki's account, Dan Altena, Niki's father, has set up for their account to be linked directly to the donations. The money that is donated will cover their financial burdens during this time. We thank you all for your support. This is the new road on Blake and Niki's journey. They are taking what is put in their path and trusting in the Lord to carry them. On July 31st, Blake was hospitalized with what the doctors thought was severe pneumonia. With the help of excellent doctors, they found it to be more than just that. They have now placed him on a ventilator and a machine called ECMO, both machines giving his lungs and heart time to rest in hopes to heal them. They have been on this journey for a month already, and will continue to be for months to come. The financial burdens are great and we would like to lighten this burden for them. Again, we thank you all for your love and support. JESUS WE TRUST IN YOU!
