David Iverson is a life-long resident of Viroqua, Wisconsin. David is married to Heidi and they have two children Brett and Amanda. Their family is blessed with two adorable grandsons Aaron, Lincoln and their third grandson will arrive in April.
On November 8th, 2016, he became gravely ill. He was taken from Vernon Memorial Healthcare by ambulance to Gundersen Lutheran Hospital in La Crosse, Wisconsin. They thought David had thrown his back out unfortunately that was not the case. AN MRI confirmed his back pain was caused by a large pocket of Infection (abscess) in his lower back. He was diagnosed with a serious infection, labeled “bacterial meningitis” which was in his blood, all up and down his back/spine, his neck and the outer lining of his brain. The doctors said it was the worst meningitis infection they have ever seen. Because of this large abscess (pocket of infection) formed in his back, there was also a small one on the back of his head/brain, and later on the upper spine and base of his neck. He was on a ventilator for about a week, was not cognitive, or able to eat, talk, or do anything on his own for about 2 weeks.
David has beaten the odds, survived this and was able to come home in late January. David has a very, very, long road of recovery ahead of him and the doctors are hopeful he may be able to make a full recovery. It will be at least one year before he may be able to return to work. With the proceeds from this benefit we would like to help him and his family through the coming year to make things a little easier for them and David by allowing them to help David concentrate on his recovery.
His family and friends would like to help David’s journey back to recovery a little easier by hosting a fund raiser on May 6th, 2017 at the Viroqua VFW. There will be a Spaghetti meal, auctions, raffles and much more.
