Patti Schuppe Medical Fund

Patti & her husband Jim were in Colorado on May 25th visiting their daughter Jamie & son-in-law Troy when they were involved in a terrible car accident.  Sadly, the accident claimed Jim's life and seriously burned Patti and Jamie.  Both remain in the Critical Care Unit of a Denver hospital receiving daily treatments/ surgery.

Many have asked how to help.  

Reach Out.   A Caring Bridge site has been established to provide updates on their journey. 

Donate.  Financial donations will be used to meet mounting medical expenses related to Patti's recovery, which is expected to be lengthy.

There are Two Ways To Donate:

Via this GoFundMe Site.  To support operational expenses of this site, 91% of the funds collected will be directed to the family.

Via St. Elizabeth's Credit Union and any of Community First Credit Union's 23 locations in Northeastern Wisconsin. 100% of funds received at both credit unions will be directed to the family.

Please choose the method that is most convenient for you and know how deeply grateful Patti and her family are for the support.
