*My brother John and I have created this fundraiser to raise money to help support our dear friend, Jeff and his family. Jeff is a long time friend that we have known for many years. John and Jeff grew up as best friends and have a long lasting friendship. We always welcome Jeff with open arms to our family partys, vacations, and gatherings just as if he were one of our own. As most of you know, due to the horrific event that had taken place at the Boston Marathon this year, Jeff was severely injured. Throughout this difficult time we want to help in every which way we possibly can to get Bauman back on track as soon as possible.
*Medical bills are going to start rolling in, let's get a head start on helping out Bauman and his family! Every dollar counts!!

*We all knew you were the nicest kid, now we know your the strongest!!
We're all praying for a quick and safe recovery!

Loren, I have to say the same thing. Most of what I've seen up to this point was nothing but hate and misery. As horrific as the attack was, we saw people move in to save the lives of others right away. Then we saw total strangers help new friends bounce back. While many have a long way to go, if it wasn't for the people who saved their lives, many more would have died or been in even worse shape. Because of the actions of these heroes the rest of us are fortunate to know of amazing people like Jeff, Heather, Marc, Celeste, Adrienne, Rosann, Mery and all the other survivors. BTW, I sent an email to our President and my two senators suggesting cancelling 2 F-35 joint strike fighters and using the money to pay all the medical and recovery bills of the Boston and 9-11 survivors. Of course none of them listened, but maybe if more told them....

Jeff, thank you for helping catch the the terrorists. Remember you did it before they could kill any more people in New York so you are a true national hero. I think Congress owes you a Congressional Gold Medal (highest civilian honor) But how is your recovery going? Have you been fitted with your prostheses yet? This site hasn't been updated for a while.

a C-LEG.......something to look into Jeff. AGAIN I ENCOURAGE YOU TO READ THE 3 PAGE ARTICLE. IT IS AN UPLIFTING STORY, THAT WILL HELP YOU IN YOUR RECOVERY. http://www.golfdigest.com/maga zine/2009-10/ken_green?current Page=1

Hey Jeff, just dropping in to say hello and hope all is well. I just read an interesting article about a PROFESSIONAL GOLFER who lost part of his right leg below the knee. Its a wonderful article I would encourage you to read. His name is Ken Green and he currently plays on the CHAMPIONS TOUR. Four days after the amputation, there stood at Green's bedside a young Mississippi woman who, in her father's church-meeting words, had come to "love on him." Green said to her the kind of thing he is always saying. He said smiling words. "What kind of misunderstanding of me do you have," he said, "that makes you want to meet me?" Not a misunderstanding. A shared fate. Rachel Blackledge was 17 when she fell from a boat and lost a leg above the knee to a propeller as the boat passed over her. Her best friend was killed in the same accident. At 21, she walks on a C-Leg, a mechanical wonder of sensors, microprocessors and hydraulics that's the next-best thing to the real thing. She had come to the hospital to encourage Green that he could live the life he wanted, as she has.

Hi Jeff, My name is Philip. I am an artist living in Brooklyn, NY. Among the items that I make and sell are screen printed skylines of many cities across the country. Since the Boston Marathon bombing, I have been collecting money from the profits of the Boston skyline prints I make to donate to various victims. Now that a year has passed, I have chosen 5 people and will be donating to each of them. It is my goal to keep collecting money and continue the donations each year. In addition to the monetary donations I will be making initially to some of the victims, I would like to offer a Boston skyline print that I've made to you and any of the other victims who would like one. You can look at the art in the link below. If you would like to have one, reach out to me at my email address with your mailing address. Please share this offer with any victims that you are in touch with that might like one too. https://www.etsy.com/listing/1 18346367 Wishing you all the best! -Philip Sachs sheepshead.design@gmail.com www.sheepsheadnyc.com
