As some of you know Courtney’s 19 year old son Carson suffered a massive stroke Friday night caused by an unknown blood vessel mass that was bleeding on his brain. Carson went through an 8 hour surgery in the middle of the night to remove the mass and part of his skull at Kettering Hospital. Even though he is currently off life support and breathing on his own thank god he still has no movement in his left leg or arm.  For the next 6 weeks while Carson’s in the hospital in intense therapy to try to get back to functioning again & speech therapy Courtney will be with him and not be able to work. It is going to be a long road to recovery and to alliviate the stress of out of pocket medical bills on top of Carson’s health myself and Marci have set this up to help the family after getting calls and texts asking what anyone could do to help. Please feel free to share & donate anything you can as anything will help and of course continue to pray for his health to progress as time goes on thank you. Carson and the family will greatly  appreciate it❤️ Even if you are unable to donate, sharing this post helps spread the word. All thoughts prayers and donations are appreciated

This is an update from Don....(Courtney's fiance)
I just wanted to give everyone and update on my stepson Carson. Through all of your prayers, well wish and positive thinking...he is home from the hospital. Now it is all about rehabbing his left side of his body and the effects of his stroke. He is walking, talking, and has most of his motor skill, which is a miracle compared to almost being completely paralyzed on his left side when he first went into the hospital. He still needs a lot of rehab to hopefully get everything back to normal. He also will have another procedure on another mass in his brain in a few weeks...which will hopefully be dissolved with radiation. He is doing great and is in good spirits. Carson hopes to see you at his benefit where he would like to thank everyone who has wished him well and supported him.

I have gotten the go ahead to give details of the surgery on Tuesday. They found another mass on Carson’s brain that cannot be operated on as it is too close to the brain. The only way to remove the Mass is to try to shrink it with radiation. This process will be a way longer recovery than expected. Don & Courtney send their thanks to each and every person who has donated and shared Carson’s story and have expressed how deeply greatful they have been for everyone’s help. As of now Carson is being a fighter & is not giving up! Continue to pray for the family, thank you. ❤️

Yesterday afternoon Carson had a second surgery and they were given some very disheartning news. They are working on treatment options and as you can imagine it is a devastating blow to Carson, Courtney and their family. Please continue to send positive thoughts, prayers and encourarment for his recovery.

Thank you to everyone who has reached out with well wishes, volunteering for the benefit, donations, and just overall concern for Carson. He is such a sweet soul and continues to fight hard knowing there are long extremely difficult days and nights ahead of him. Carson, Courtney, her fiance Don. Carson's father J, siblings and extended family send their gratitude and are thankful for such a supportive community.
