Scott is a devoted father to his four children, Taylor (16) Kaleb (14) Blake (11) and Kade (7) and a wonderful husband to Lisa. He is a dedicated father who coaches his kid's baseball and basketball teams in Saint Michael/Albertville. He loves watching his kids play sports and cheer on his Minnesota Gophers.
Eight years ago, their lives were turned upside down when he was diagnosed with Stage 4 Colon Cancer.
Since then, he has had numerous chemotherapy treatments, radiation and surgeries.

Last weekend, Scott ended up the hospital because he was feeling weak. He is home now and relieved to be with his family.  Lisa is taking some time off work to spend with Scott and the kids. The financial burden of cancer is overwhelming. 

Please consider donating to this amazing family to help with astronomical medical costs, raising 4 children, and lost wages for Scott and Lisa. 
Please share his story with friends and family !

Thanks so much, Jill Porter and Shelly Berg
