SHAKIYL NEEDS YOUR HELP
I am writing this letter on behalf of my friend Shakiyl Smith. He is 21-years-old and he really needs your help. Four years ago, a bullet to the left side of his neck instantly transformed his life. In one horrible instant he was changed from a 17-year-old high school basketball standout into a high school quadriplegic. The victim of senseless gun violence, Shakiyl has been without the use of his arms and legs since August 2008.
