Thank you so much for visiting Shane Kelley's donation page! Your interest in helping Shane during this difficult time is appreciated far more than you could ever know. With this website, as well as Shane's CaringBridge page
, we hope to create a vehicle for financial and emotional support to get him through the medical challenges that lay before him.
On April 22, 2013, he will undergo the first of at least two invasive surgeries to correct a birth defect in his kidneys. In addition to the physical toll this major operation will take on his body, the cost of the surgery is much greater than he is capable of taking on alone. If you've had the good fortune of meeting Shane, you know it is not in his nature to ask for help or handouts, but this daunting and humbling situation is one of those moments in life where we must put pride aside and lean on the strength of our friends and family. Shane needs your help. And with these sites, there lies the opportunity to help him in multiple ways....
The first is to spread the word.
Post, share, forward, Tweet, Pin, and spread news of this donation site as far and wide as you can! This won't cost you anything but a few seconds and can create an enormous amount of awareness and support.
The second is emotional support.
Visit Shane's CaringBridge page
and let him know how much you care. Share your warm wishes and prayers to remind him that we are all behind him, and he is not alone on this journey.
The final opportunity is financial support.
This means of support is crucial. As we all know, unfortunately, the looming burden of medical costs often trumps the fear of going under the knife itself. This certainly rings true for Shane. He greatly needs your help in this area, and this site is designed to make donating as simple and quick as possible. We of course encourage you to donate as generously as you can, but even a donation of $5 (the price of a Venti at Starbucks) will help greatly. If you would prefer to donate via check, make checks payable to "Shane Kelley Surgery Fund" and mail them to:
2802 Lakeview Drive
Missouri City, TX 77459
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for your love and support!
