Support Alan Vleck and Family

This story is about Alan and Karen Vleck and their family.    Karen and Alan live South of Bemidji with their 3 kids.   

A year ago Alan was injured in a car accident on his way to work.   Alan and a co-worker were nearly struck head on going 65 mph but fortunately the oncoming car didn't hit head on but struck the driver's side of the vehicle.  Alan was the driver.  Thankfully the passenger did not suffer any injuries. 

Over the course of the last year Alan has been struggling with and trying to heal from this accident.   He suffered a concussion,  has been diagnosed with Cervical Dystonia, (which is a neurological muscle disorder)  has severe headaches,  loss of some eye sight, sensitivity to light and sound, ligamentous damage and continual pain and discomfort from muscle spasms.   He has to travel every 3 months to Minneapolis to receive botox injections in his neck to help control the muscle spasms.  He travels to Fargo once a week to see a specialist there.   Due to the medications he has been on he has been unable to drive at times.   Karen works full time and has had to miss numerous days in order to bring him to and from doctor's visits, and keep up with the needs of the kids.  He quite possibly will be dealing with some of these issues the rest of his life.    

I have started this fund for Alan and his family because they aren't sure what the future holds.   Due to the trama from the accident he has not been able to work in a year, despite mutltiple attempts. That accident has affected them physically,  mentally and financially.  I want to try to ease the financial burden as soon as I can.  

I love this family dearly!  And anyone who knows them loves them just as much!  They would do anything for anyone without question!  They are loving, ambitous and eager to be there for anyone.  They are always optimistic and smiling!  Recently their smiles have started to fade.  Lets work together to raise some money to ease their stress of the past year and the unknown future!  They deserve it!
