David Avery has been diagnosed with a fairly rare cancer called multiple myeloma, and is need of medical assistance.

David Avery, owner and proprietor of Prestige Signs in Seward, Nebraska, has been diagnosed with a fairly rare cancer called multiple myeloma. He is uninsured in part due to preexisting conditions such as diabetes and post-polio, and is applying for Medicaid, but is in dire need of assistance.

As many know, David Avery, our father, has spent his life battling illness. From polio at age 9 months to diabetes, he has struggled and managed to overcome. He is now a pillar of the community, has served on the Chamber of Commerce, and is a well known local figure, having been in business for himself for over twenty years. He strives to help those around him, and would give anyone the shirt off his back. He is sarcastic, witty, and is known as a person to go to when in need of a solution.

Now David himself is in need of assistance. After a broken back, David was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a blood cancer that starts in the plasma cells, and destroys the bone marrow. He is currently residing in Friend Manor, and is receiving radiation and chemotherapy in Lincoln. This is an expensive endeavor, particularly without health insurance.

His family is seeking to help offset the costs of David's medical care and housing, so he can achieve the longest life possible as comfortably as possible.

If you have any questions, please email Jessica Avery-Knopik (David's daughter) at or call at 402-430-8545.

Thank you all SO Much!! - Jessica, Vincent, David, and the Avery family
