Mike and Becky Meyer and their daughters, Lydia and Nina, are members of FPC. Nina has Muscular Dystrophy. In March of 2016, Nina required surgery on her spine to insert a rod that would enable her to maintain better posture, which among other things improves her respiratory function. Nina was hospitalized for two weeks in Denver, CO, and is now recovering at home.
The Meyer family needs to purchase a van to transport Nina. Mike and Becky have a standard van, from which they lift to carry Nina to and from her seat, and also the wheelchair to and from the back. After the surgery, carrying Nina now causes her pain so they need to purchase a wheelchair accessible van for transport.
Nina is a past Ambassador for MDA Nebraska and continues to advocate for the organization through her participation in fundraising and speaking engagements, including Community Health Charities of Nebraska.
FPC is excited to offer a matching challenge fundraiser to help the Meyer family. All donations sent to the church (or made to their ‘Go Fund Me’ account) will be matched dollar per dollar by FPC up to $25,000!
Checks made payable to Mike or Becky Meyer may be mailed c/o FPC at 621 N. Lincoln Ave., Hastings, NE 68901 (this is not a church donation). Or if you prefer, their ‘Go Fund Me’ account (established by Keith Napier) is online at: https://www.gofundme.com/225bbqk. Please do what you can to help them achieve this goal!
UPDATE- Due to the generosity, support and love of our congregation, on Sunday, May 22 the Meyer family was presented with the matching funds. Glory be to God!
