The Gershman Family Fund

On Friday, July 3 Ari Gershman was shot and killed by a random gunman while off roading in his brand new 4 wheel drive Jeep with his son, Jack near Downieville, Ca.   After surviving over 30 hours alone in the Tahoe National Forest,  Jack was found safe.  Ari's wife Paige is in the fight of her life right now undergoing Chemo treatments for Cancer.   This family really needs our love and support.   Paige is now the single mother to Evan, 16 a rising Junior at SRV, Jack, 15, a rising sophomore at SRV, and Maci, 10, going into 5th grade at Sycamore.  Most recently Paige was a speech and language therapist for the Special Ed Preschool Classes at Greenbrook.   Ari was an avid bicyclist, a vegetarian, an outdoorsman, an Internal Medicine Doctor, a devoted and loving father and fantastic friend that was willing to drop anything for his friends and family.   He was witty and wise.  He died doing what  he loved with his son in an area he had hoped to retire in one day.
This GoFundMe will help Paige pay for Funeral Costs,  Chemo treatments and doctors appointments, family counseling, daily expenses.  The financial burden is overwhelming. 
Please donate what you can.  Forward this GoFundMe to everyone you know.  
We love the Gershmans.
