Dawn Richie Benefit

As many of you already know, Dawn has endured not only one  but two open heart surgeries since June of last year. What many do not know is that Dawn has also endured many complications between the first surgery last June and her most recent surgery in February. Throughout the course of the months leading up to the second surgery the complications Dawn experienced were many and required many trips to the doctor’s office and several visits to the ER. The second surgery that was done in Rochester at the Mayo Clinic thankfully went very well and she is slowly but surely on the road to recovery. She has a long road ahead of her and it goes without saying that returning to “life” as she knew it is going to take a lot of time.. The last several months have been extremely taxing on both Dawn and Mike in all areas of their life.

Anyone that knows Dawn and Mike know that the are always some of the first ones to help others when someone needs something.
