With her infant daughter just 9 months old, Sara was diagnosed with breast cancer. Sarah is currently receiving aggressive chemotherapy and is missing some work while medical and household bills are adding up. It will be a long road ahead for her and her husband Christian. Just when you think things couldn’t get any worse, the mother of Sara’s 2 stepchildren died tragically in a snowmobile accident. Sarah and Christian now have a household of 6!
Mar and Linda aim to help families like Sara’s. Bring your friends and family and come support us for a good cause and a good time!

Our Story Continues;
On June 2, 2017, at the age of 21, Nick lost his battle with mental illness.
Many people who know Nick credit him for always being there for when they were suffering and struggling; he would drop everything to be there for a friend in crisis. Even with the support of his family, partner Brian, close friends and though he tried to help himself by reaching out for help by getting psychiatric care and medication, in the end, the lies told by mental illness took him from us.
It is because of Nick that we are continuing “his story” by joining forces with NAMI MN to raise awareness for mental illness and erase the stigma associated with suicide.
For more information about NAMI Minnesota, go to their website – www.namihelps.org.
We welcome you to join us in our efforts to raise money for mental illness awareness, suicide prevention, education in schools and to support our charitable partner, NAMI Minnesota.
Remit Form and Check Payable to The Nickel Open Fund: P.O. Box 161 Jordan, MN 55352
The Internal Revenue Service recognizes The Nickel Open Fund as a section 501(c)(3) organization (EIN: 82-5196694).
