Lonnie has lived in South Dakota most of his life and is proudly raising his family in Sioux Falls. For many years, times were good. Lonnie worked hard at the local Children’s Hospital, and his wife worked full-time to provide for their two young children. Lonnie and his family's life took a turn for the worse when a sudden heart attack caused Lonnie to stop working. Before he could fully recover, he was also diagnosed with cancer. To take care of Lonnie and the family, his wife quit her job, and the family has struggled to make ends meet ever since.
“I thank you from the bottom of my heart.” - Lonnie
