Dieter & Associates has unveiled a new charity campaign in their ongoing community involvement program serving the families of greater Dubuque, IA. The Avenarius family has been devastated by concurrent multiple cancers in both parents, while struggling to provide for four sons, two of which have special needs. Compassionate community members who wish to join the campaign to assist this family may visit:

The Avenarius family has had a rough few years. In April of 2013, Mike and Jennifer were both diagnosed with cancer. They each had surgery, Mike for testicular cancer and Jennifer for melanoma, and needed no further treatment. However, in August of 2015, Jennifer was then diagnosed with Stage 2 Hodgkin’s lymphoma and that November, Mike was diagnosed with Stage 2 seminoma. Both are currently undergoing chemotherapy and working hard to take care of their four boys as they battle to get well. Aged 5, 7, 9 and 19, the middle two children have special needs. The financial challenges of providing for their family while both parents are out of work have proved daunting, in addition to the ever-escalating medical expenses.

“It’s heartbreaking to see this wonderful family having to deal with so much,” said Tim Dieter, owner of Dieter & Associates. “The emotional and financial stress of fighting one cancer is more than enough for any family to cope with, but both parents with multiple cancers at the same time? We believe in local people pitching in to help others in their most difficult times and feel honored to aid these good folks in whatever way possible.”

Utilizing its own resources and seeking the help of its vast network of customers and business partners, Dieter & Associates marches on to ensure customers, friends and neighbors are always in good hands. Social media and an email awareness campaign will be used to help the agency’s caring team to spread the word about the campaign for the Avenarius family. They have also featured the cause in their monthly magazine, Our Hometown, which is delivered to thousands of households in the Dubuque metro area. The electronic Flipbook version of the current issue may be viewed at:

Supporting their latest Community Cause has never been easier, as Dieter & Associates has pledged to donate $10 to the Avenarius family for each and every recommendation they receive for an insurance quote, with no purchase necessary.

The agency just recently launched their master charity program, promising to choose a new local organization, family or person every two months to receive support. To learn about past campaigns, please visit: Further information about Dieter & Associates is available at:
