We are Tim Klump and Shelly Klump and we are organizing this fundraiser to help a young family friend to be able to keep going strong after a life-changing tragic accident.
Nate, just 18 years old and on his way to a family dinner on a Sunday afternoon in March, was hit head-on by a driver who was under the influence. Nate lost his entire left arm, which is his dominant arm, in the accident. After immediate measures were taken to save his life, Nate was airlifted to Albany Medical Center where he spent the next 16 days and underwent countless surgeries.
Nate may be out of the hospital, but his journey is far from over. There is a long road ahead for Nate and his family as he navigates life without his dominant arm. Doctor appointments and therapies will be ongoing as he continues to try to heal. Despite this emotional and physically challenging journey, Nate continues to push forward and conquer his battles. He almost always has a smile on his face and is a true picture of courage and inspiration.
Don't let his smile fool you though, Nate still needs our help. He isn't letting much slow him down, but the financial implication of the tragedy that changed Nate's life forever is tremendous. Any amount you can give is appreciated beyond words!
Together let's be #NateStrong.
