••••••••••
I have started this gofundme because Justin and Michelle need your help! If you don’t know who they are, Justin and Michelle are truly amazing people, they would give you the shirt off their back without asking any questions. You can always count on them no matter what. Justin is a long time tow company owner/operator of Plan B Transport and he is a life member as an EMT and previous Vice President of the Finderne Rescue Squad. Both Justin and Michelle are well known within the towing, EMS and motorcycle communities. Michelle is currently unemployed due to her on-going battle with her medical illness. Justin has fallen critically ill over the last while and is currently hospitalized, which has left him unable to work. With them both being unable to work, their medical bills are piling up and they need our help so they can keep their insurance. Any amount you can give is greatly appreciated and will go directly to them to assist in medical bills. We thank you in advance for your help. Please share this to reach as much help as possible.

It is with a very heavy heart that I write this update, Justin passed away earlier today. The surgery he had yesterday was to repair damaged intestines, when they began the operation they discovered things were far worse than anyone had imagined and the doctors informed Michelle that they were not able to fix it and that he would not be able to recover. He was a great man and will be missed dearly, Michelle needs our help and support now more than ever as she begins to prepare funeral arrangements. Please continue to share this page to raise the funds that Michelle will need for the medical bills and funeral expenses.

I went and visited Justin and Michelle at the hospital tonight and Michelle asked me to post this update. Justin’s condition has not changed but she wants everyone to know that she is extremely grateful for everyone’s support, whether it be through a phone call, text message, visit to the hospital, donation to this page or sharing this page, she is overwhelmed by the support and would like to say thank you to everyone. I will post more updates as Michelle passes them along to me, in the mean time please continue to share this page to get them as much help as possible, every little bit counts!
