As two siblings face a series of heartbreaking hurdles, the Mankato community is stepping up to help.

Jeremy and Justin Bergo’s father ,Bryan Bergo, was recently and unexpectedly diagnosed with Stage 4 liver cancer. Despite swift efforts to fight the disease, Bryan was found unresponsive Labor Day weekend and was taken off life support with his wife laying by his side.

In addition to Bryan’s passing, the Bergo’s mother, Roxy, has been in and out of the hospital with serious health-related issues that will now require long term assisted living help.

“The Bergo family has been presented with a perfect storm of tragic events. And while they have been doing their best under these extreme circumstances,” Fundraiser organizer Andreas Leipold said.

The local band, Rad Owl, shared Jeremy Bergo is their bass player and is showing their support online: https://www.facebook.com/radowlband/posts/pfbid02bNY5Tw5FFz58C9MCUW8Sq6m3YsBTN2FkRiHC7wBgnCmbNQHyh99rJH4CCRfYJd6fl

In 2 days, the community has raised more than $15,000 for the family during this difficult time.
