Help the Challeen Family

As many of you know, Erik and Melissa awoke Sunday, March 24, to a day that would change both of their lives. Erik wasn’t feeling well and Melissa ended up having to call the ambulance and Erik was rushed to Skyridge ER. After doctors determined he had a ruptured aneurysm in his brain, he was flown from SkyRidge to Swedish Hospital. There are many unknowns at this point as they’re still trying to plan the best course of action for surgery and treatment. Erik is currently intimated and sedated in ICU and will be there for several weeks, with a long road of recovery afterwards. As Erik was laid off a few
months ago and had been consulting as he could, Melissa is the sole stable income for the family. In order to allow her to be at Erik’s side and take care of the kids, we would love to help ease at least some of the financial side. Any amount will
help. If you can’t hep financially please check out the meal train we have set up to help also.
