Stephen Needs Your Help

My son, Stephen, is an extremely bright, caring, funny and determined young man. He was born with a rare form of Muscular Dystrophy and has been through a lot in life with numerous surgeries and hospitalizations and yet still faces many challenges ahead. Stephen goes to school part time and enjoys computers and hopes to be a computer programmer one day and become a video game designer.

Spent today at St. Luke’s Catholic Church Craft Bazaar selling homemade necklaces to raise money for Stephen’s campaign. Thank you so much to everyone who stopped by and offered their prayers and support! Also, thank you Gloria and Joe for your hospitality and allowing us to share your table.

I wish everyone who runs across this young man's story could have the opportunity to meet him and his loving family. I have gotten to know them, and the closeness of their bond and the love of the siblings for each other is beyond anything I have ever seen. Stephen is an amazing person! Stephen's mother works incredibly hard to care for her son with an endless commitment and love to provide the best possible life for a young man who has had to endure quite a bit with regard to his personal health, some of which may have been unnecessary due to questionable hospital decisions and treatments. I pray that others will make an effort to help as they can. Every little bit is a true blessing to this family.
