Help Now! Wildfire Fund

Giving Back to Craig Moilanen 2014

Help with massive medical bills.

Craig Moilanen is an avid hockey player and fan, and in 2012 realized his dream of becoming a firefighter and eventually was promoted to the rank of captain. Unfortunately, during a doctor’s examination for a cold, it was discovered that Craig had lymphoma.

As often happens with firefighters, his brothers and sisters have rallied in support of Craig and his family. In December, they staged a one day hockey tournament featuring departments from all over the region, and all proceeds from that event went into a fund to help with his massive medical bills.

Dawg Nation got word of Craig’s situation, and have joined with these heroes in their efforts to aid a fellow hockey player, public servant, and great family man. Because of the tournament, other contributions, and a grant from the DNHF, on February 8th we were able to present Craig and his family a check for $17,000- our largest single amount to date.

We wish Craig Moilanen and his family all the best, and he’ll stay in our thoughts and prayers as he continues his battle.
