A fund has been established by coworkers of North Idaho College Biology Instructor Karen Chamberlain for her husband Dave, who needs a heart transplant.
Dave, of Coeur d'Alene, underwent triple bypass surgery three years ago and recently had a pump placed in his heart at the University of Washington Medical Center. He is now under 24-hour care over the next three months in Seattle to see if the pump helps him recover enough to be a healthy candidate for a heart transplant. In the meantime, Karen Chamberlain is still continuing her teaching duties at NIC while traveling between Coeur d'Alene and Seattle.
The "Dave Chamberlain Help Fund" has been established at Mountain West Bank. Monetary donations of any size are welcome and will assist the family with medical bills and travel costs. All Mountain West locations will accept donations.
Information: NIC Pharmacy Technology Instructor Paula Lambert at (208) 666-8002.
