2019 Friend
Dear Friend,

Spring has finally arrived and Friends Helping Friends is excited to announce the 23rd Annual Golf Event. We are sending you this letter as a thank you for your loyalty and the hope you can be a part of this year's shindig. With your help we have changed many lives in the past 22 years.

Our new friend is Daylan Wiest whose life changed suddenly and dramatically on May 30, 2016. Daylan was a happy and healthy 13 year old who was enjoying Memorial Day Weekend by riding the Northern Minnesota trails on a 4 wheel ATV. Zipping down the trail, Daylan came upon a turtle in the middle of the trail. As he swerved to avoid the turtle , he over corrected and lost control of the vehicle which then hit a divot in the ditch throwing Daylan off the ATV violently. The aftermath of this horrific event resulted in instant paralysis from the bottom of his ribs downward. He was airlifted from Bemidji Hospital to North Memorial Hospital where the grim diagnosis showed his spinal chord completely severed at the T6/T7 vertebrae. Daylan needs titanium rods to stabilize his T6,7,8, and 9 vertebrae.Countless hospital stays and 5 months of rehab at Gillette Children's Hospital occupied Daylan's first year of recovery. His injuries also meant he needed to breath with a tracheostomy tube due to damage to his airways. He is now trach free through the miraculous work at the Mayo Clinic. Daylan, just like any other 16 year old, would like obtain his drivers license.

Our hope at FHF is to raise sufficient funds to purchase a vehicle with hand controls so Daylan can begin behind the wheel and driver training so he can reclaim some independence .We can help achieve thls through your selfless support.
