ESCANABA, Mich. (WLUC) - This week’s UPsiders are the Abrahamson family in Delta County.

The Gary Abrahamson, Jr. Memory Care Center was built after the Abrahamson family made a $500,000 donation in honor of their son, Gary, who passed away in 2012. Gary had suffered cardiac arrest which lead to a brain injury in 1987, which required that he have lifelong care.

A $20,000 donation from the Abrahamson family has kept the facility running during the coronavirus pandemic, since fundraising efforts have been stalled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Learn more in the video above.
