Help Shjawnie w/Quadripeligia Needs

Please help donate any amount to setup funds for Shjawnie Quinn. This year Shjawnie suffered a serious medical accident and his injuries left him a C4 quadriplegic. He has been in the ICU, hospital, and now hospice / rehab for about 6 months now. Shjawnie is only 24 years old. We are ready to move him home. He is such a brave, caring, loving, & intelligent young man with a tremendous huge heart who cares about others before himself. His family is starting this fund to help with needs to move him out of the low grade hospice he has been staying in, and into his own handicap accessible apartment with his dad. We need to buy a sand bed, so he will be able to sleep through the night without having to be turned over every 2 hours. Currently Shjawnie is only able to move above his neck. We will also use funds to help facilitate any additional needs or amenities we can find to help him live a more comfortable life. Shjawnie is the brightest, best kid ever! Let’s raise funds to help him & his family in this most difficult time. We appreciate all of the love & support immensely! Thank you sooo much!!!!! So, please (if you can) help support Shjawnie! ❤️ Thank you times infinity!!!

Hello, the Go Fund me team has requested that I include some additional details to my story. So here it is! I want to be as clear and transparent as possible! My name is Jesmyn (Jessy) Oleffe. I am a graphic artist with a Bachelors degree, and a mom. I have over 30 cousins, and Shjawnie is the youngest. I am Shjawnie Quinn’s first cousin. He is my little cousin. Our mothers are sisters. Shjawnie is very important to me. I would move mountains to help my family members in need! I am originally from Cambridge, Massachusetts. I currently live in Scituate, Massachusetts. Shjawnie is currently living in Spaulding Rehab facility in Boston. He will be moving into a handicap apartment in Cambridge, MA. Very soon within weeks, not months. The balls are rolling! The funds collected will be used to help Shjawnie get set up in his new handicap accessible apartment, buy any electronic gadgets, medical equipment, or even to order food or any general items that he will need on his journey. This money is being collected to give to Shjawnie as a gift to help him during this tough time. Shjawnie will have full control of all funds. He will 100% have full decision capabilities of the money collected. Every person has donated specifically directly to help him. Shjawnie has requested that I withdraw the money and give him access to the bank account. I am also able to open a trust for him, where he can make withdrawals specifically from this money collected. This fundraiser has meant so much to Shjawnie, me, and our entire family. I cannot thank everyone enough for their amazing generosity and love. Thank you to every single person! ❤️ Only positivity and progress from here!

God Bless you all and Thank You again!
