Due to an ongoing struggle with Cystic Fibrosis, Caleb required extensive treatment and surgery only offered at a specialty hospital in Minnesota. Nominated to ENIN in 2015, not only was ENIN able to help his family with out-of-state travel expenses, but also contributed toward their living, food, utility, and medical expenses. All this allowed his family to focus their energy on their son’s treatment and recovery.
Having stayed close with the family across the years and throughout Caleb’s recovery, ENIN knew in 2016 when mom Lisa was injured in car accident that totaled the family car. In the same week of the accident ENIN was contacted about a local resident wanting to donate a car to a family in need – a fateful coincidence that allowed us to connect this family with a car and some additional assistance when they needed it most.
