Nathan Vredevelt Passes Away

Nathan Vredevelt is a teenager with Down's Syndrome who was hit on I-5 near the rose garden.  The Trailblazers and fans were raising money to help his family with the medical expenses. 

I received the very sad news via email from the Blazers earlier tonight.

"The unfortunate accident on I-5 on Sunday has taken the life of Gresham’s Nathan Vredevelt. The Trail Blazers offer their condolences to the Vredevelt family. The team, in an effort to assist the family with medical bills, hosted a collection at Wednesday’s game that generated more than $21,000 in cash donations, including amounts collected on-line.  $10,000 donations from the Trail Blazers and Southlake Church have generated an additional $20,000 for a total of over $41,000."

What a sad story.  My prayers to his familiy and friends.  RIP Nathan...
