In the early morning hours of Sunday, March 19th my eldest son, Jason became the victim of the most heinous crime anyone could imagine. As he slept he was doused with gasoline and set afire. A suspect is in custody and the investigation is underway. My son was transferred immediately in a 'flight for life' to a burn unit in a Denver, Colorado hospital - in critical condition.  Currently, I have no resources to travel from Arizona to be with my son who desperately needs me now. Please help and donate to this go-fund me account to support my  efforts to be with my son and assist with his medical expenses. The hospital indicated he will be in the hospital for months and will require several surgeries. Please help.

Made it to the hospital with my son. He started crying and said I love you mom. This is a tragedy no parent or child should be subjected to. No money left for food for me to eat but thank God I m here.

Here is a newspaper article and pictures of the suspect that committed this egregious act upon my son. In the article Scavarda said: ""I was mad at him because he told my girlfriend I cheated on her."
Scavarda said he went to a bar, had a beer and told the bartender he wanted to kill Crowder. " [This is my son's last name.]

I just spoke with my daughter, who is currently with her brother. I could hear the worry and concern in her voice. I know like myself, she feels helpless and our hearts are heavy right now. This was such an unjustified, heinous act. She informed me that Jason is going into surgery soon. They will be removing the dead tissue caused from the 3rd degree burns and skin grafting on his chest, face and arms.

Thank you so much for your prayers and donations to help me get to Colorado to be with my son.
