Support Stabbing Victim

Ben VanDell is my nephew.  He was viscously attacked and stabbed multiple times in his sleep. Please consider a donation to assist with his medical bills and other needs he may have in the future as a result of this attack. Thank you “Support stabbing victim in his Recovery” - On the morning of Saturday January 27th, 2018 Ben VanDell was attacked in his home, while he slept. This random act of violence resulted in more than a dozen stab wounds to his face, abdomen, and other areas. Due to the severity of his injuries Ben will be recovering at home for some time. Medical bills and living expenses will only continue to grow. The insurmountable costs associated will be offset by this fund. Thank you in advance for considering Ben’s cause. Once it is determined what Ben will need to help him regain his ability to live independently, the funds will be dispursed to him for these purposes.
