The family and friends of Dave and Nicole Beckett are uniting to raise money to help assist with medical treatment and moving expenses.

My husband suffers from a very rare fatal disease called Chronic Progressive Dysautonomia. We moved to Hawaii in August of 2011 due to the lack of funds and credit to go anywhere else. My husbands sister has two homes on the Big Island, she was the only friend or family member that could take us in, that was near a specialist. We had found a doctor in Honolulu that was willing to take us on that specialized in Dave's disease. The very month we moved to HI the doctor retired. Since we have been here we have been trying to figure out how to get to the mainland to see a specialist and now have two family members to take us in as Dave requires someone to be present 24 hours. We are trying to raise money to move back to Michigan so we are closer to family and the Cleveland Clinic for treatment and family help. Without treatment, he will certainly die within months. We have a 5 year old daughter that he would like to see grow-up. We have already sent our daughter to go back to MI and live with my Sister so she isn't present to witness the horrific sysmtoms that occur with this disease. As a Mother, this has been the hardest decision I have EVER had to make. Dave has already been hopitalized as of three weeks ago and I have to perform CPR on a regular basis just to keep him alive. With proper treatment, it could prolong his life. Please.... any donation to assist with our cause would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for any and all help you are willing to give. Warmest regards, The Beckett's
