The Baker community has an opportunity ‘to-pay-it-forward’ on Sunday, March 26 when a free will offering medical benefit breakfast will be served from 7 a.m.-1 p.m. to help a local resident defray his medical expenses.

Herb Uecker, 65 year old Baker resident, will be traveling to the Lung Institute in Scottsdale, Ariz. to receive two separate stem cell treatments for a lung condition that has left him totally disabled since June 2016.

The treatment, which is offering hope to many persons suffering a variety of lung conditions, is unconventional and is not covered by insurance.

Herb and his wife Teressa have been members of the community since 1996.

They both have worked at local eating establishments throughout these past 21 years.

The Ueckers have two sons, Shawn (Edy) of Baker and Clint (Brandie) of Shepherd, Mont.

Everyone is invited to come out, enjoy a hearty breakfast and contribute to a worthy cause. The breakfast buffet will be served at Thee Garage Showroom from 7 a.m.-1 p.m. Whether you will be heading to work, looking for a good breakfast before or after church services or want to roundup your relatives or friends for a special Sunday brunch, why not come down and eat your fill while helping a local family meet medical expenses?

*Thee Garage will also be serving homemade pie and ice cream for $5 a serving to go toward Herb’s fund, now through March 26.
