Hockey friends...hunting and fishing buddies...Alaskans...Minnesotans!  

         The Hammer needs your help! 
 Dave "The Hammer" Hanson suffered a massive stroke the morning of Dec. 7, 2017. He was rushed to Mat Su Regional Hospital, then medivaced to Providence Hospital in Anchorage.  He had surgery to relieve the swelling of his brain, and he is still in the ICU at Providence.  Long term prognosis is still unknown 

This page is being set up for Dave's family - his wife, Diane Firmani, and their sons, Chancie and Cooper. 

26205824_1513244467.5072_funddescriptionDave are Diane are grateful they have insurance. But as we all know, insurance only goes so far.  This account will help with airfare for Chancie, time off work for Cooper, loss of Daves's income (Dave does not have sick or vacation pay) and everyday expenses incurred (gas, food)  as Diane and the boys dedicate their time to Dave's recovery. 
26205824_1513245668.411_funddescription.But it's the long term expenses that are disconcerting.  Hammer's road to recovery will be a long and expensive one.  His family needs your help. 
26205824_1513246493.9841_funddescription  Many of you have asked,  "How can I help?"  At this point, your prayers for Dave's recovery and a donation will mean the world to Dave, Diane, Chancie and Cooper.  Just click on the Go Fund Me link to make your donation.  TIA and please share this link with your friends.
