Nate White Recovery Fund

Hello friends and family,
     On June 25th 2016 Nate and some friends were kayaking in Crested Butte.   Nate suffered an unfortunate accident while navigating one of the waterfalls. He was rescued from the river and med flighted to Swedish hospital just south of Denver. Upon arrival Nate had no movement below the waist and limited feeling in his legs. 
       He had emergency back surgery to take pressure off of his spine with subsequent surgeries planned to follow. While he is surrounded by loved ones it is unsure how his recovery will be. However it is certain that his recovery will be long and arduous. 
         I have decided to start this fundraising campaign to help my brother out with medical deductibles, durable medical equipment, and whatever else that is not covered by insurance, including money for living expenses.
        Nate is an 11th grade English teacher in Carbondale Colorado, thus his income and savings is not enough to cover such a financial burden.  If you know Nate, you know his giving nature; he is always worrying about the needs of others.  As friends and family I think it's our duty to give back to Nate. 
      Please help me by donating as little or as much as you feel comfortable with, every little bit makes a difference.  Nates web of friends spreads over the globe and I have no doubt we will be able to exceed our goal. Thank you for your contribution, your continued support, and your love.
