2014 was a challenging year, full of ever-changing obstacles for Ben, Shelby, and all those friends and family who have loved and supported them throughout.
2015 is a year of new beginnings and new challenges. Both Shelby and Ben continue to receive treatment for cancer: for Shelby the glioblastoma in her spine and now brain, and for Ben Hodgkins lymphoma.
Ben's treatment will require him to be away from home for an extended period of time. The Offrink and Tomczak families will continue to support as they always have, along with many other friends and extended family.
Additionally, the financial situation has changed in that Shelby is now under long term disability coverage.
Suffice it to say, 2015 is bigger, and requires our hearts to open wider, make more time, make bigger efforts. Any donations will go directly to Shelby & Ben to pay for medical bills, food, household needs, and any other support they require.
If you would like to bring the Offrinks a meal, please sign up via the link below. Thank you!
Donations to Shelby & Ben can also be made out to “Team Offrink Family Donation Fund” and sent to the Huntington Bank in Lowell, Michigan.
414 East Main Street, Lowell MI, 49331
For the safety and privacy of the Offrinks, Mike Curtis at Farm Bureau Agency in Lowell will accept any packages or donated items for the family and we will deliver them personally to Shelby & Ben. You may mail them or drop off in person if you're local to the address below.
