The family and friends of Dr. Ron Dawe are uniting to raise money to help ease the financial burden that his family is facing.

"We wish you could have seen firsthand what we have been privileged to witness over the past few months. Instead, we will try to find the words to express the strength and dignity with which Ron, his wife Ellen, and their three children (Nathan 12, Matthew 14, and Lauren 21) have shown in a situation they never imagined could happen." - Mr. William Wolf

Ron suffered from a brain injury while treating a horse in December of 2006. Not only did this accident result in his inability to work, it was also the start of a downward spiral of severe medical conditions and in May of 2011, he was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer. After surgery and months of being in and out of the hospital and rehabilitation facilities, Ron lost his battle with cancer on February 18, 2012.

The past five years have required Ron’s wife to be his caregiver while trying to juggle earning a degree to ultimately support the family as they watched their life savings slip away to cover medical and living expenses. We would like to see her obtain this goal and feel that if we gather together as a community, much can be accomplished to ease the burden that this family has been facing.

Funds raised will help cover medical expenses not covered by insurance and helping this family make a new start as they not only have just lost a husband/father but have also lost their home.
