    My family is hosting a Giveaway for my Dad’s Mach 1. He’s 42 years old, permanently disabled, and now needs medical attention at Mayo Clinic. We are raising funds for his medical expenses. The post is public and under my name, Rylan Kressel.

    Here’s an additional link, but you need to contact me through Facebook for a Spot.

    Here’s the GoFundMe page that explains what my Dad is going through.

    It was really difficult 5 years ago when he first became ill, but this most recent set back has been even harder. Mayo Clinic is so overly expensive that our out of pocket expenses are going to be around $40,000. Giving up Dad’s Mach 1 isn’t easy, but his health is most important. If you or anyone else would be interested in participating, we could really use the help.

    Yes, so sorry to hear about your dad. My son-in-law (46 at the time) became disabled (a terminal illness) due to a brain disease so I know to some degree what you're going through with your dad. I pray for your family, your dad, and for a GREAT success with your GiveAway.

    Sucks to hear of your dad.

    I see Todd Warren at the top of the list of names. I don't have FB, but can I buy a ticket?

    Thank you CobraBob for your kind words. Yes, things have been difficult since my Dad first became disabled 5 years ago. Contracting covid has really pushed his progress backwards, which is why it’s time for him to get medical attention at Mayo Clinic. We are hopeful for a positive outcome.

    Hello 98 svt. Todd Warren has been assisting me and my Mom throughout this Giveaway. We’ve never done anything like this and he was the first to offer a helping hand. Many others have been extremely helpful and we couldn’t have gotten this far without everyone’s help. If you pick a number, I’ll add you to the Giveaway. I appreciate your kindness. Here’s a Google link to the Giveaway: 2004 Mach 1

    That's great to hear that Todd has been helping you.
    You pick the number, and just tell me where to send the $$

    Edit: Found the PP address in the link and sent the payment. Maybe PM me your # choice?
    When is the raffle?

    We’ve got 28 Spots remaining. As soon as those are filled and everyone’s spots are paid, we’ll make the announcement. I’d like to hope this is concluded within the next 2 weeks. The sooner it’s done, the sooner Mom can make Dad’s final arrangements with Mayo Clinic. Since you’re not on Facebook, please use this link to check in.

    I will follow up with this page though. I appreciate everyone’s support and hope Dad’s car goes to someone that will enjoy it and maintain it like he did. Dad really loves that car.
