Love for Rory

On the evening of August 19, 2016 the Sheffield's were on vacation in Cocan, TX. While mom and dad were unloading groceries from the car their 3 year old son, Rory Antley Sheffield, decided to go exploring.

   It wasn't very long at all when mom noticed Rory was not around. It was then mom saw something no parent should ever have to see, Rory somehow snuck past the old children playing outside and somehow got inside the fence which surrounded the swimming pool. Rory was found unconscious in the pool.

   Dad and others removed Rory from the pool and began revival efforts until first responders arrived. Rory was revived and eventually transported to Methodist Childrens Hospital in San Antonio.

   Rory is fighting with everything he has and the doctors are giving it their all to keep this little boy here with us. Rory is not showing any brain activity at this time but we are staying positive and have given it all to God.

   The Sheffield family are an amazing family. Dad (Jason), is a small business owner and he honorably served our Country through the Marine Corps. Mom (Sherry), is an awesome stay at home mom. Sherry is home schooling Rory's older brother and sister, Lorelei and Jae and also works in the business. Rory also has another older brother, Cody, who just graduated high school.

   The reason I have created the campaign is to take the monetary burden off of Rory's mom and dad. The last thing Jason and Sherry should be worrying about right now is where the next house note is coming from or how they will be able to keep the lights on at home. Again, Jason is a small business owner and if he's not at work the family has no money coming in.

   100% of the money raised will go directly to Jason and Sherry.

   For those wondering who I am, my name is Ian. Jason and I met in the law enforcement academy and since then he was the best man at my wedding and is my best friend. I am heart broken as I type this and there is nothing I can do or say to ease their pain right now, I'm just trying to ease their financial burden so they can focus on what is important right now.
