To all friends of the Chris Selvig Family,
As many of you know, Chris was diagnosed about a year ago with ALS(Lou Gehrig’s disease) but was actually symptomatic about 3-4 years ago. About 80% of people with ALS survive only 5 years with the disease. The disease is moving quickly within Chris’s system and he is no longer able to function without constant care. Kay is doing her best but it is physically challenging to move him around at home and transport him in the car without the use of his legs and now his hands. They desperately need a specialized van with a lift to manage transportation. Kay is also not able to work so that she can care for Chris so the medical and care expenses are piling up. Kay will eventually need professional help at home as the disease progresses. The initial minimum goal is $30,000 to secure the van & lift with any additional funds to help cover medical & care expenses.
Many of you have asked for a way to help so a group of friends met this week to determine if a benefit event would make sense in November. After several hours of discussion and lots of good ideas, it was determined there are immediate needs the Selvigs have that can’t wait 6-8 weeks for an event. An account has been set up to accept gifts for the family. Any gift you are comfortable giving to benefit the Selvigs will be greatly appreciated. Each donation is considered a gift and it is up to each business or person to determine if the donation is tax deductible.
