This is the David Avery Medical Fund. The funds will be used for David's medical costs and expenses related to multiple myeloma.

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 bone marrow cancer. He is currently residing at Bryan LGH, but will need to be moved to a care facility in Lincoln for radiation and chemotherapy. This is an expensive endeavor, particularly without health insurance.

His family is seeking to help offset the costs of David's medical care, 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
