A low income family who has a disabled son had to fix an emergency home repair issue and needed help getting school supplies and food. Zcare donated a gift card to help them out. We received the following email shortly after their family member picked it up. I just wanted to share with you her appreciation:

"We just left Walmart and you should have seen their faces, it was priceless...needless to say he has school supplies and outfits :) thank you all SOOO much!!!"

Thanks to DAYS INN LA CROSSE CONFERENCE CENTER, we're able to continue to do great work in our community.

Thank you!

Dean was diagnosed with bone cancer at the age of 16. It was an unbearable battle, but not unbeatable. He went through extensive surgeries, chemo and radiation. He nearly lost his leg to this ravishing disease...but he grabbed cancer by the throat, and beat it. At age of 18, just beginning his adventure into adulthood....the cancer came back. It has metastasized. Dean lives in La Crosse with his girlfriend and her family. His dedicated mother travels to La Crosse to be at all his appointments and due to missed work and traveling expenses, her income is very limited. There are 3 trial drugs that are very expensive but viable options for saving his life.

On Tuesday, February 2nd a snowplow and Brian’s SUV collided on Highway 14/61. Unconscious but breathing Brian was extricated from his vehicle and taken to Gundersen Hospital. Brian spent 2 ½ months in various medical facilities recovering from his multiple injuries along with a traumatic brain injury.
Currently, Brian is receiving speech, physical and occupational therapies at their home but will soon be transitioning to outpatient therapy in Viroqua. Brian has made tremendous progress but still has a long road ahead of him.
Brian and Marlene have lived in the Viroqua area for over 20 years and have 3 sons.
Brian works at Viterbo University in the maintenance department. Due to the severity of the brain injury, there is no timeline on when he will return to work. Marlene is a teacher in the Viroqua School District. Marlene was at Brian’s side during these past months of hospitalization and rehabilitation and was unable to work.
Friends and family of the couple are hosting a benefit to bridge the gap between the loss of income and the ongoing medical expenses. The benefit will be held on September 24, 2016 at the VFW in Viroqua beginning at 3pm.
Activities include: Meal (free will donation); Chinese Raffle, Live Auction, Pie Auction, and Wine Auction.
Please consider donating an item for one of the auctions, raffles or food for the meal.
