Help For the Ollnau Family

The Ollnau family are some of the kindest, loving and selfless people I have ever met. Their compassion toward others is never ending and each of them would, literally, give their shirt off their back if you needed it.  Unfortunately, life continuously throws curve balls toward this amazing family.  Most recently, Jeff has to have major surgery but was let go from his company for some ridiculous reason... just a week before his scheduled surgery. He will be out of commission for many weeks and without pay. On top of that, he will require a brace that insurance will not cover.  This family would NEVER ask for this fundraiser to be set up but I can't stand to see them struggling when I know that they'd do anything possible for others if the roles were reversed.  It's a difficult time for everyone but I am asking you to please help in any way you can.  Thank you in advance.
