Team Member in Need of Help
Sun. Jan 5th 2014

Wilderness Search and Rescue is looking for your help to help one of our own. Jeff and Laura McIlroy are very active members of WSAR. Jeff not only is a Crew Boss, but also serves the position of Treasurer. Laura heads up our fund raising efforts. Here is were we need your help  - 

On December 26th Jeff, 33 years old, was taken to the ER by his wife Laura for lower body swelling. Five hours later it was discovered that Jeff has a watermelon sized tumor in his stomach. The tumor is believed to be a high grade Sarcoma and Jeff and Laura are awaiting biopsy results. Jeff is currently out of work due to complications from the tumor and they need your help.

Jeff is truly an awesome person. So awesome he is known to friends as "Dr. Awesome" and to family as "Uncle Awesome". For the past several years he has volunteered with the Wilderness Search and Rescue Team, has helped set up fundraisers, and has given up his holidays to serve hot meals at local Syracuse, NY area shelters. He is an avid hiker, a lover of all animals and nature and is a phenomenal son, brother and husband. It is time for all of us to give back to Jeff for all that he has done.

Your donations will help Jeff and Laura pay for any travel expenses, medical expenses and bills while Jeff is out of work.  

Please visit GiveForward to help Jeff and Laura. There is also a link on our main page in the lower right corner.
