Buddy Ashton

Dear Facebook family and friends,
    I am asking for your help. As most of you know Buddy is attending Hawkeye Community College in the commercial photography program. This is his last semester. He is finished in May but he’s not sure if he will be able to finish do to all the tragedies that have happened in the past few years.
      To fill in some of you who are not aware of the tragedies. First he had several surgeries one that messed him up enough to where he was unable to continue at his previous job (L&M Radiators). Then he lost the his father and best friend (Mike Ashton) in a tragic motorcycle accident that he witnessed first hand and suffers from PTSD do to that day. Then lost his only source of income. Then a year and a half after that he loses his father figure and best friend (Merle Bell).
     Now the only thing that’s has kept him afloat is his photography. He has been on the Dean’s List for the last 3 semester and holds a 4.0 GPA. So this is where all of you come in. He stressing himself with worry because he has been talking about quitting because he is unable to afford to finish do to Financial issues.
    I am asking for your donations to help him finish.
                        Thanks for your support,
                                  Jennifer Ashton
