Help Kip's Family While He Recovers

Early December, my uncle was working in his shop when a barrel exploded behind him and struck him in the leg, causing severe damage. After managing to apply his own tourniquet and calling 911, he was life flighted to a hospital in Missoula, MT. The decision was later made to move him to Seattle, WA.

After a long and difficult fight, it was decided that they should amputate below the knee.

Since then his condition has improved, but as to be expected he is facing a long road of recovery. Kip has always been a very hard worker, but in his condition it will be some time before he can go back to work as a logger. I am starting this fund to help support his family while they focus on getting him back to health. Any help, even small amounts is tremendously appreciated.

All donations are deposited directly to the family account for them to use as needed toward bills and medical expenses.
