Bismarck - As one of eight kids, Doug Bichler is used to being the one to pitch in and help.
But when he needed it himself, he couldn't have guessed just how many people would show up.
"For people to be here to help us for two whole days has been awesome," Maria Bichler, Doug's wife says.
"All these guys here have their own stuff going on and the fact that they would take time out of their own days to come help Doug and just help us get stuff done makes us very grateful," Patrick Schumacher, Doug's nephew says.
More than 50 friends, neighbors, and fellow farmers and ranchers came to work on the Bichler ranch over the weekend.
Friends and family say Doug has always been the first to offer help to anyone who needs it.
"You get [things] done with friends and family," Michael Bichler, Doug's brother says.
Because every wall built and every fence mended is all in service to their friend.
"We want to say a very heartfelt thank you to everyone," Bichler says
