A message from Chris’s and Karen’s families

Over the last two and a half years, many people that have followed Chris’s battle with cancer have asked how they can help Karen and Chris.  We have been telling everyone that they were doing okay, but that we would let you know when the situation changes. As you know from reading this blog, Chris has now had to leave work.  He has filed for disability but will not be able to collect for a few months. The medical and living expenses over the next few months will exceed their income.  To help them get through this transition period, we have established a special bank account for donations that will be used to help cover Karen and Chris’s expenses.

If you are still interested and able to help, you can send a donation check written out to Chris or Karen Baty.  Please either attach a note to the check stating “deposit in donation account” or write “donation account” on the memo line of the check. While it’s not required, it’s a good idea to write “For Deposit Only” on the back of the check.  The check should be mailed to the following address:

Think Mutual Bank

15751 Emperor Avenue

Apple Valley, MN  55124

As an alternative, you can send credit card donations to the donation account via a secure PayPal site using the “PayPal Donate” button on the right side of this blog (you must have a PayPal account).

If you have any questions about donations, please send an email to Dianne Stratton at stratton.dm@gmail.com.

Many of you have already given donations, cards and prayers, and for that we are extremely grateful. Please continue to keep Chris, Karen, Brenden and Jaxson in your prayers.

The Baty Family and the Stratton Family
