Dear Family & Friends,
Our purpose of fundraising is to support Gregg Berklund. Gregg is a true friend, a son, a brother, an uncle, a godfather and a great person who was just diagnosed with the AIDS virus. If not taken care of correctly and immediately, this can affect his way of living and the people around him significantly. Due to Gregg’s recent unemployment and no health insurance, we are raising funds to assist in the cost of ongoing medical treatments and costly prescriptions he requires.

We are here to support Gregg in any way possible, and we need your help. Please consider donating to his cause to allow him to live a healthy life and to overcome this hardship. A donation of any size will benefit him tremendously.
We will continue to love and support Gregg no matter where this virus takes him. We LOVE you Gregg!!
