On behalf of my husband, Frank Lee, we wanted to  personally THANK YOU for the thoughts, prayers, and financial support you have kindly and generously offered to us in our greatest time of need. (After 2 hospital emergency room visits and surgeries, he and I could use the help and hope.)

Frank was seriously injured attempting to do what many Minnesota home owners do during the winter, which was trying to clear our roof of snow by getting on a borrowed ladder on Sunday, December 1. He suffered a skull fracture, many broken ribs, a broken shoulder and collar bone, and a crushed spine, just to name a few examples of his injuries from his fall.

Frank is quite simply lucky to be alive. It is a miracle, in my opinion, that he did not die from this recent accident, and among his first words to me in all sincerity was “When can I return to work?” and “Can we still volunteer this week as scheduled?”

Many of you reached out to us directly or indirectly about how you could help. Honestly, it has been a challenge, but we hope that our love and faith will pull us through while Frank is unable to work, and we are deeply appreciative of our caring Brainerd lakes area and St. Cloud-based friends and families.

For updates on Frank’s condition, I have created this personal CaringBridge webpage ...  and for those of our supporters who have generously asked us how to help offset his medical expenses, you can donate at his GoFundMe fundraiser webpage:

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
