Aaron Stamper's Medical Fund
His family has had a difficult two years. His brother died in a car wreck two years ago. The family has obviously suffered emotionally and, most likely financially due to these events. My goal is to raise this money to help the family pay medical bills and if any is left over, I think they very much deserve a bit of a vacation.
I was inspired to start this campaign by Aaron and my students. I've also seen the effects of cancer on my own family. My wife, her mother and father have all had and survived cancer within the last five years. My stepfather and stepmother both died from cancer. Just like many of you, I know the medical bills can be enormous and the stress for everyone involved can be overwhelming.
I asked the kids in our fourth grade classes to write birthday cards to Aaron . I was really impressed at the effort they put into creating the cards. So, on the spur of the moment I created this GoFundMe page. I didn't even really know what I was doing, I just Googled it and followed the
directions. I surely didn't expect such an incredible response.
I hope that doing this teaches my students the importance of doing good deeds for those that may be going through a rough patch in life, and to be humble and unselfish, which is hard in our material world. We all need to be more like Aaron!
Aaron is a great example of humbleness and his perspective on life is refreshing. He obviously knows what really matters. I hope my students can inspire him with their cards and that we can give him and his family support and inspiration during such a tough time in their lives.
I wish you the best Aaron,
If everybody approached life the way Aaron did, the world would be an amazing place. He's a great example of selflessness! We can only hope and pray that he gets healthy soon. We all need him as a role model, even if he's only 16!
Happy Birthday Aaron,
I am so touched by him. I work at the post office and he is getting more than 10,000 cards. We currently are working on a special delivery to him today for his birthday since we don't deliver on Sunday. I am just amazed at all the cards coming in from all over the United States. It brings tears to my eyes. My father passed from leukemia and I wanted to do whatever I could for Aaron Praying for you and your family. Enjoy the cards and thank you for letting me get them all to you!!
Just curious, why has this campaign not been closed after 3 months? Go Fund me just sent me an email after I donated 3 months ago to remind me as a donator that it has not yet been closed. One more question, why did you say in your update comment that you would pay the $300 to close it if it reached $6000 when it is capped at $5000? Is Aaron okay? We need an update please?
Hello Aaron..I hope you come here to this page often, not only to check the donations, but also to read the comments. I was at your house last week, with Mission Restore. Don't expect you to remember me, but believe me, all 17 motorcycle riders, and the special vehicle of John's, plus the drivers and passengers in the other vehicles will remember you forever. Hope you are feeling better, and if you wish to private message me on FB..(Anthony Long)...and get my phone number, (it is on the card as well) our group would love to take you on a ride on one of the bikes when you feel up to it. Keep us posted on your progress, and keep up the good spirits. You have lifted us up with your attitude, your positive outlook on life, and just the mature way you are conducting yourself...Thank you for allowing us to enter your world for a little while, we will never forget it....Tony.
To the 4th grade teacher, Robert, I think what you are doing is wonderful and it touches my heart. So many of us sat around a do little in these times. Thanks for stepping up to the plate and doing this wonderful deed!!! I agree, Robert if there is any money left this family does deserve a nice vacation. I have lost a child and now are raising the grandchildren and I know how bad they need this vacation. God bless you Robert and God bless Aaron and family.
