Prayers for Stephen
Thanks for the outpouring of prayers, donations and support for Stephen and his family.
Stephen had an accident on July 23, 2016 during our family vacation at the beach that will forever change his life. While in the water, a wave hit him with such force, he was rescued from drowning, but awoke paralyzed from the neck down (C4). He has been transferred to Shepherds where he is recovering from the accident, surgery to his neck, and trying to regain movement.
Family and friends set up the GoFundMe account to help the family with medical expenses as Stephen was the main source of income and now is unable to work.
Gary Franke, Stephen's brother, will be managing the funds and the account which has been set up at Bank of America in Atlanta, GA. He is doing so on behalf of the family.
We appreciate your continue support at this difficult time.
WSB TV, the ABC local affiliate, will be airing a story on Stephen and his journey. Tune into WSB (Atlanta) tonight, Thursday 8/25, at 4:44PM EDT and 5:53PM.
Additionally, Inside Edition Digital, hosted an interview with the family, and a new video and story will be posted on InsiderEdition.com later today.
Links to all these stories will be posted on our page as soon as they are available. Thanks for helping make this journey easier and being with the family every step of the way.
