Ken Dahl Fundraiser
On June 16th, Ken experienced a massive stroke, which resulted in a loss of speech and mobility on his right side. He is a driver for Aggregate Industries and the sole income earner for their family. Ken and Kate’s son Ben will be a Freshman at Mayville State University, daughter Emily, who has Autism, will start at South High and the eldest, Noah, lives in Portland, OR. Ken is an avid Bison and Broncos fan who loves to fish, grill and work on home projects. With medical bills rising, please help Ken get back on solid ground. Friends and family are hosting a benefit at the Moorhead American Legion on October 10 from 4-8 pm. Cash/checks payable to “Ken Dahl Benefit Fund” may be sent to First International Bank & Trust, 3001 25th St S, Fargo, ND 58103.
As we get closer to the in-person benefit, I thought I would add an update on Ken’s Progress.
Ken is home and doing very well! Ken spends most of his time in the garage watching TV or doing puzzles with Kate. He’s in outpatient therapy at Sanford a couple times a week.
Ben is attending college in Mayville, ND and Emily started school at South High!
Update from Mary Lou Dahms: Ken continues to make progress and this week started Botox injections in his right arm to relax the spasms and encourage voluntary muscle reaction and increase strength. Speech is still improving along with balance. We hope you all can come see him at the benefit. You will be amazed at his progress!
Kip and I have started to upload auction items on the Lend a Hand Up website. The auction will be live on 10/2/2021 at NOON!
