Loved ones of Travis Laible raised more than $11,000 in one day but are asking for more for Travis and his family
Travis Laible is being described as one of the most popular guys in Clark County because he seems like he is a friend to all.
That best friend to all, and his family, are in need of support.
Laible suffered a stroke in November and is facing a long, expensive recovery. His loved ones have set up a GoFundMe page, raising funds for Laible and his family. In one day, the page raised more than $11,000.
The goal, though, is $150,000 to help Travis recover from this debilitating medical crisis.
The GoFundMe page can be found here: https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-travis-laible-family-road-to-recovery?utm_medium=referral&utm_source=unknown&utm_campaign=comms_jxnp+help-travis-laible-family-road-to-recovery)
Travis is described as one of the funniest and most popular people in the county, a man who is invited to just about every big event because people know he will bring joy with him when he attends. Travis, his friends say, is a man with a quirky sense of humor and a huge heart.
“Need help moving? He’ll bring the beer. Charity golf tournament? He’s already secured the sponsors. Coach kids baseball? Tag him in,” the page describes.
“Feeling down? Travis will put his arm around your shoulder and say, ‘Ah man, you just find out they canceled the McRib at McDonald’s, too?’”
Contributions to the fundraiser go directly to covering medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, and living expenses for his family.
“He is the guy you want in your corner, and right now, he needs us to stand in HIS,” the fundraiser states.
Travis Laible also has a saying: “Brother’s don’t shake hands, brothers gotta hug”
Travis’ friends say they are looking forward to getting those hugs from Travis as soon as he recovers, and they hope the community will help Travis and his family in that mission.
