Dusty Hoffman



Background: Dusty Hoffman was flown to Swedish First Hill Critical Care Unit in Seattle on a LifeMed flight Saturday, October 6, 2018. 

His team of eight specialist doctors are currently working around the clock to give him the treatment his body needs to survive.

Dusty’s internal organs are in critical condition, but he has the best team of doctors and nurses caring for him. They estimate his recovery to range anywhere from three weeks to four months.

This is going to be a long recovery and we need your prayers. 

The Cost: We ask the community to come together to offset the medical expenses necessary for saving Dusty’s  life in Seattle and to assist with covering his bills in Fairbanks. We are asking for donations to cover the medical bills so Dusty can focus on his healing. 

What our friend needs: Dusty needs his friends, family & community to rally behind him to show him we are fighting WITH him. The road to recovery is best traveled with the support of us. Please share this page for donations, praise Dusty’s name during prayer, and come together in the name of his healing. 

For I will restore health to you, and your wounds I will heal, declares the Lord.”
~ Jeremiah 30:17





**Dusty is our dear friend who has become our family. We are setting up this account knowing he would never ask anything from anyone. We know finances can be an extra stress that we do not want him to have to worry about during his healing. He is the kind of friend who would be the first there for us (he helped us move last week!) & now we want to be there for him.
