Erik's Story

By the Grace of God Erik is alive and well to enjoy his 39th birthday. In June, Erik was working in a empty home repairing a furnance. He needed a part so he went to the part place and while he was there he collapsed and had a seizure. Alot of terrible things happened to him that day. he was rushed to Iowa City and they found he had a mass of arteries all twisted on his brain and 3 of them were swollen. (called a AVM) he had this since birth and it was like a time bomb on his brain waiting to happen. They had to do life threatening brain surgery to remove the mass of arteries. He is home now recuperating and doing very well but he will be off work for serveral months until the Dr. releases him. They are now trying to live off Jennifer's income until he can go back to work. Hospital bills are now coming in and are overwhelming!!!!!!  Erik and Jennifer (his wife) have 4 wonderful boys ranging in age from 16 down to 6 years of age.
