On January 11, 2018, Kipp Nash had brain surgery to remove a tumour. It was a surprise to all of us, and the diagnosis to operation was a short window of time.
Kipp is expected to be home a few days after surgery, and will be in a state of recovery for a few months. All indications so far say that the tumour was benign and once removed, should not spread or recur.
The recovery time is estimated to be about 3 months, and in that time Kipp will not be able to work, lift, exercise, or do anything that raises blood pressure or heart rate.
The financial impact on the family of Kipp not being able to work is significant. Funds raised will go towards supporting the family during the time that Kipp is recovering. Funds will also be used for Kipp to get treatments to aid in the recovery process.
It's unknown at this time what other support Kipp and the family will need.
It's with Kipp and Kate's blessing that this request for support has gone out. And they are humbled and grateful for the kindness offered by their friends and community.
