If you're visiting this site, it's likely that you know Bob and his story about his fight against the devastating disease ALS. If you don't know his story, keep reading...

It's been four years since Bob was diagnosed with this devastating disease. Bob has fought hard to keep the progression of this disease at bay but, after four years, it's taken it's toll. What started out as weakening in his arms has turned into full body paralysis. 2 1/2 months ago, Bob was having trouble breathing and went into respitory failure. Debbie called 911 and remarkably, the paramedics were able to resuscitate Bob after being gone for 10 minutes. The paramedics put in place a breathing tube and rushed him to North Memorial Hospital in Golden Valley. Eight days later, the decision was made to perform a tracheostomy where a more permanent ventilator was put in place. After weeks at Regency Medical Clinic, the decision was made to send Bob home.

The purpose of this fundraiser is to help the Beidels with the overwhelming cost of Bobs required 24-hour daily care. As you can imagine, this will become a financial burden beyond what anyone should have to deal with. Our intention through this fundraiser is to help Deb, Bob and their family with these additional expenses.

Through your donation, some of this financial burden can be alleviated. Your donation will help pay for nursing care, medicines, equipment and other items to help Bob remain as comfortable as possible.

Your donation can make a world of difference to this amazing family!
