Help a Friend with a Broken Heart
Fundraiser for Russ Beck

Sunday October 24, 2004
1PM- 7PM


Editor’s note: This letter was received from Russ Beck’s mother. You may recall that Russ hosted the DTSC Spring Tech Session at his shop in Dryden, Michigan.


I need your help to do a fund-raiser on October 24, 2004 at the Dryden Wesleyan Church in Dryden, Michigan. Any donations of food, money, or items for a Silent Auction will be appreciated. Russ Beck II had open heart surgery on July 27, 2004 at the University of Michigan Hospital in Ann Arbor. He had a heart valve inserted and six days later a pace maker (all on the right side of his chest) because in about six to eight weeks, another open heart operation will be performed on the left side to replace a Dacron patch that was inserted when he was about 10 years old. Russ is 33 years old now and has a wonderful wife and three small beautiful children ages 1, 3 and 9.

The doctor told Russ he will not be able to return to work for at least a year. He is a Master Mechanic. Because of the way the economy is, small businesses in small towns have a very difficult time. That is why he has no health insurance.
