With heavy hearts, we are saddened to share Nate passed away on Tuesday, May 21, 2024 at his home in Barnesville, MN after a fast-moving cancer diagnosis. A funeral service will be held on Tues, May 28 at the High School and a benefit will be held on Friday June 7th at the Pitchfork, both in his hometown of Barnesville. CLICK HERE to view his obituary.

 

Early in 2001, Nate Strand began to feel unusual symptoms. After multiple appointments with specialists and considerable testing, Nate was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. He endured the symptoms and treatments of this disease for a number of years before colectomy surgery in 2017. He was later diagnosed with primary sclerosing cholangitis. Nate was diagnosed with liver cancer this month. He will now begin chemotherapy treatments and endure another fight for his health. Nate teaches science at Barnesville High School where he also coaches football and baseball. Nate and his wife Lauri have made Barnesville their home since 2010, with their two children Dax (age 12) and Sophie (age 9). Nate is loved by so many in this community and has impacted countless youth throughout the years.

When you give online to this fundraiser, your gift goes directly to the family and Lend A Hand Up provides a 20% financial boost to increase your giving value. The Lend A Hand Up boost applies solely to online gifts processed through this giving site. Should you wish to make a gift by cash or check, your generosity should be directed to the family or their fund at Midwest Bank, as Lend A Hand Up does not process cash or check gifts for families.

    Thank you for being one of the best teachers I ever had. You provided my love with the medical field as I took your anatomy and science courses in highschool. And now I work in surgery helping patients daily. Your smile and jokes throughout the years will be held dearly to me forever.
    Thinking of you and your family at this time. ❤️

    Nate, you and your family sure are in our continued prayers back here in Stewart! Our sons always thought it was so awesome you let them use your high school football pads as they grew into varsity at McLeod West! Might not have seemed like much to you back then, but just know you shared confidence and determination by helping out players younger than you! Thank you for being a role model even at that young age!
