Family, friends, and other kind community members chipped in financially to help the family this weekend with a poker run. According to Cortney, about $4,000 was raised.

Cortney reached out to County 10 and would like those who supported the event to see the following note:

On the morning on June 18, 2018, my husband, Dyllan Casper passed away unexpectedly due to an undiagnosed heart condition, leaving me to care for our three young children. As you can imagine, the challenges that have arose due to our unexpected loss, with financial concerns being at the foreground. As a young couple, Dyllan and I hadn’t given much thought to continuing our lives without each other. During these past two months, I have learned just how much I need to lean on the support of my friends and family. I am beyond blessed to have met some wonderful people who have given me love and support that has kept me going thus far. Our community has come together and shown their support financially, most recently with the Poker Run. The outpouring of support for that event alone raised approximately $4000, which will allow me to focus on my children for the next few months, instead of stressing about going back to work. I am so thankful for everyone who has donated to my family and has been there for a support system it means more to me than I could ever express into words. Our community is incredible.

Thank You,
Cortney, Kaiden, Daimon, and Rayleigh Casper
