Silent Auction Fundraiser

On Saturday, August 16, 2008, Stephanie Nielson was in a plane crash with her husband, Christian Nielson, and his flight instructor, Doug Kinnear, near St. Johns, Arizona. Doug Kinnear passed away soon after arriving at the Maricopa County Hospital.

Christian & Stephanie remain in critical condition at Maricopa Burn Center where they are expected to be in a chemical induced coma for several months. The Nielson’s hospital bills are expected to be in the millions. Christian has sustained burns on over 30% of his body. His wife Stephanie’s body was burned over 80%.

"For the past four years, Stephanie has welcomed us into her charming abode through the NieNie Dialogues. Far from being a product of creative editing, the Nielson’s don’t just shine through the selective lens of a blog. They are ingenuous examples of family devotion, eternal romance, and Christ centered faith."

Knowing the financial burden at hand, Demi-Dos is eager to join the club of rallying friends and family. We will be donating a portion of all of our proceeds from the 2008 Swiss Days to Nie and her family.

If you would like to make a monetary donation you may do so at Any Wells Fargo Bank under “Stephanie Nielson Fund or at any Bank of America under the "Christian and Stephanie Nielson Rehab Fund."
