A Time of Need for The Stacy Family

31992950_1533761165777490_r.jpeg31992950_1533761194234511_r.jpegKenton was coming to the end of his fourth deployment when he was critically injured by an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) while carrying out a mission as an Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Chief Petty Officer in the United States Navy.  His injuries were so extensive that had it not been for his fellow brothers in arms who worked on him we may have lost him.  In the days following the blast we experienced so many unknowns including some surgeries … thankfully Kenton survived!

Kenton and Lindsey's 4 children have been impacted in very different ways. Logan who is 10  has needed special care all of his life.  He has cerebral palsy, a physical disability, which significantly impacts his daily movement, requiring him to utilize a wheel chair when needed.  Logan is also intellectually disabled but has made astounding progress, despite what doctors predicted.

The Stacy family now faces a long and difficult road ahead. Kenton’s injuries are so extensive he is not able to participate in Logan’s specialized care. Logan misses rides with daddy in his motorized car and his voice when he would read him stories.

 Mason is energetic and longs to wrestle around with his daddy.  At 6, this has had a huge emotional effect on him. 

 Annabelle who is 4 often holds tight to her “Daddy” doll and clings to Kenton in his hospital bed asking, “Why does Daddy not stand up?”

 Sadie who is only 2, does not understand what is going on around her, but brings joy to her daddy's face whenever she is near.

Nothing is normal anymore.
The family needs our support while Kenton has now returned to San Diego and the family needs plenty of support and help with caring for there young children while  having to be by Kenton’s side at the hospital.  

Kenton and Lindsey would  like to thank everyone for all of the love and support we’ve received from our family, friends and those who have felt compelled to help, including those they have never met.
