I am trying to raise money for David Poulin, a brother in law who has been a huge part of our family since 1980.

   Just recently he has been diagnosed with stage 4 melanoma.  This news came as a shock to all of us, but especially to his wife and four children.

   He has,  in the past month, gone through 2 surgeries on his head, including tumor resection and grafting. There is a third coming up. There will be treatments, and continued visits to local and out of state hospitals. 

   My hope is to raise money to help with the medical bills this will inevitably bring. It will help ease the financial challenge and let them focus on his health and healing. 

   Dave is a devoted husband, father and grandfather. He is loved and respected by all of his family and friends for the amazing person he is. He has sacrificed so much of his time, energy and money in the community, for the benefit of others. This is a wonderful time to give back to him, in such a time of need...to pay it forward to a man who has always been so generous and kind, who has positively influenced so many.

   It is with immense gratitude that we accept any donations for The Poulins.
  
Thank you,

The extended family of David and Lisa


   P.S. David, 
 
   Over the years, we have watched, as you brought up your family with such devotion and love.

   We have watched as you dedicated a lifetime to your job as a teacher with such devotion... and put your all into the basketball games you coached, with the same devotion. 

   It is our turn to give back with the same devotion. 

   We all think you are an awesome individual and we will support you any way you need us to. 

   We love you and your beautiful family !

Thank you everyone for your prayers, encouraging words and very thoughtful donations!
We are moved by the sentiments included by family, friends, students and neighbors, with the donations.

We do not often realize how one person affects so many. It is very clear, by the words shared, that Dave has positively influenced a great number of people over 3 generations. That is quite a legacy!

While Dave awaits his next step in the process, he and his family are so overwhelmed and encouraged by the love and generosity shown. They appreciate every single one of your thoughts and generous contributions.

We will keep you updated with his progress .
Thank you just does not seem enough...yet we are so very thankful for each one of you!
