Patterson Family Fund

On the morning of December 23, 2017 the Patterson family was involved in a terrible car accident resulting in the tragic death of their 19 year old son and injuring all others in the vehicle. 

The family was travelling from Oregon to Utah to visit family for the Christmas holiday. Three minutes from their destination they crashed and the vehicle rolled.  Kaje Patterson died at the scene. His older brother Nathan sustained a pelvic fracture and was released from the hospital Christmas Eve.  Their father Christopher Patterson was hospitalized with a punctured lung, a broken clavicle and numerous broken ribs; he underwent surgery and has since been released from the hospital.  

Funds are desperately needed to help with the surmounting medical bills, funeral costs and to help the family get back to their home in Westfir, OR.

All donations will go immediately into an account held by Theresa and Christopher Patterson and will assist them in this long road to recovery.

While prayers and love will always be welcomed; any monetary donation that can be made no matter how small will help.
Anything you can give at this time would be greatly appreciated and humbly received.
