 Brian Muller & Family 
Brian Muller has been a member of the Midway Chamber of Commerce since 2013 as a financial advisor with  Edward Jones Investments. He and his family find themselves navigating a journey none of us would like to travel.  His wife  Amie is undergoing treatment for pancreatic cancer, and  Brian has taken an extended, unpaid leave of absence. Managing a household of children aged 14,4 & 2 is challenging in the best of times. The Muller family is not in the best of times. 
Brian could use some help with staining their deck and fence on Sunday, June 12 at their home in Woodbury. What better way to remind them they are not alone, but by grabbing a brush. If you are able to help, please email   beth@midwaychamber.com. More information on Amie and how to support the Muller's can be found on her  CaringBridge site.
