Help a Beloved Decorah Father and Prize-Winning Chef Get Back on his Feet

On February 25th, 2020, Justin Scardina suffered a devastating fall at work. With a ruptured aneurysm in his frontal lobe and a vertebra fracture in his neck, he was airlifted from Decorah, IA to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, where expert neurosurgeons saved his life. The severity of his condition required him to remain in the intensive care unit at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester for ten days, followed by an additional week-long hospital stay. On March 13, at long last Justin was stable enough to be transferred to the Inpatient Rehabilitation unit at Gundersen Health Systems in La Crosse, WI, where he remained until March 19. What makes the situation even more catastrophic is that Justin was uninsured at the time of his accident; this campaign is to help ease the extraordinary financial burden of his medical bills and his continuing rehabilitation needs on his long road to recovery.
