Eva Helm, the daughter of Matt and Brit Helm, was diagnosed with Diabetes insipidus (DI) caused by a brain tumor very close to the Pituitary Gland. Eva will be having brain surgery on October 1st to remove the tumor. Eva’s Father Matt Helm manages Green River Stone Company’s Kemmerer Quarry, and is an amazing friend to all of us in the fossil industry.
Update (January 26, 2020)
Eva has undergone surgery to remove the Brain Tumor, and heals from her ordeal as she and her family learn to cope with the Diabetic condition that the tumor caused. The family continues with ongoing follow up visits and medical expenses, and will likely do so for years to come. The Kemmerer Lions Club has begun to raise funds to help the family cover some of these ongoing expenses, allowing the family to focus less on finances and more on the recovery of young Eva.
To help Eva, enter for a chance to win a StrikeMaster gas ice auger. Special thanks to Rapala/StrikeMaster for donating the auger.
Update (January 21, 2019) Radar (Easton's service dog) has arrived! The trainer will remain with Radar and the family for a period of time to help get Radar settled in. Work will also begin to acquaint Easton's peers and others with the protocol for interacting with a service animal.
Congratulations to Easton and his family on achieving this life-saving goal, and thank you to all who supported the Kemmerer Lions Club to allow us to help!
