Brad Avery of Midale was involved in an oilfield accident recently that covered over 70 percent of his body with second and third degree burns.
Avery is now receiving skin grafts and other treatment in Edmonton hospital, but faces a lengthy recovery. His wife Shelley is by his side. The couple has two young children.
A trust fund has been set up in Avery's name at the Midale Conexus Credit Union and two friends, Kristy Webber and Michelle Kleinsasser have started a facebook page entitled 'Thoughts, Prayers and Support for Brad Avery'. The page features an online auction as a fundraiser with several quality items to bid on.
Anyone who would like to donate to the fundraiser or get more information please feel free to contact Kristy, Michelle or Mike Lee.
