Gary Kurtz Fundraiser
Gary Kurtz was diagnosed with prostate and bladder cancer in May. This is his second battle with cancer, fighting testicular cancer several years ago. He will endure eight weeks of radiation, driving 3 hours round-trip, five days a week. He does not have health insurance currently. Money raised will be used to pay medical bills, costly prescriptions, and travel expenses. Gary and his wife Michelle reside in Becker County.
Gary has worked in Perham, MN, for the last several decades. Most people know him as Car Sales Gary at Schmitz Motor Company where he has worked for 14 years. Gary is kind, jolly, and loves to tell jokes and have coffee with his friends at the car shop. Gary has 3 children, 9 grandchildren, and 1 great-grandchild. He is the best grandpa and all the kids love him dearly. They love swimming in his pool, helping him feed deer, hunting with him, and going on side-by-side rides. The best part about Gary is that even while waiting for a diagnosis (and then after diagnosis) he has a great attitude about life and his prognosis. He believes God has a plan for him and is guiding his journey.
