Lend a Hand for Lippy

Brian (Lippy hereafter) suffered a severe pancreatic attack on Friday, May 12th while in the Brainerd area and was rushed to the Brainerd hospital in critical condition. He has been hospitalized a majority of the time since, moving to increasingly better care facilities (Brainerd-->St Cloud-->Mayo) to ensure he receives the world-class care necessary to treat his very serious condition. As a result, and despite great insurance and disability benefits, the bills for both medical and travel expenses will continue to mount. All of this while he and Ann are expecting their 2nd beautiful child in September.

Lippy's always been the first to lend an unsolicited helping hand in many forms, to include a simple "how can I help" or "let me give you a hand with that"; a quick "let me see what I can do" or "I might know a guy" (and always coming through); and lest we forget "don't worry, I'll stuff this approach on the final hole in near darkness on the Aloha hole of our full day golf match" (crushing the hearts and souls of his opponents). We all know he would never ask for a single thing in return (and certainly hasn't) but we now have to the opportunity to offer up our helping hands and would ask that you consider doing so for him and his family in any way you that you see fit, whether that be monetarily or otherwise.
