Gary Shaws Medical Fund

I started this page for my long time friend Gary Shaw, I have known this man since we were14 yrs old and just starting our journey in this life. Gary and I have shared many many experiences that only best friends do and like best friends do we have had our ups and downs but still always love each other in the end. Gary has had multiple medical hurdles, transplant, hep C, diabetes, etc. and recently has spent over a month hospitalized ending with the ICU. Gary has not been able to work for some years now and lives on disability with his room mate and high school friend Charlene who has some medical issues of her own and lost her husband Mike a few years back and she also lives off Mikes military pension but together they have been getting by helping each other. Since Gary has a financial responsibility for a portion of his medical care and Charlene and Garys one and only car decided to no longer function they/he is in an extremly tight financial situation. Gary did not ask me to do this but those around him reached out and did, so I humbly come to you my friends, family, church, and public to show the "Big Dawg" a little helping hand in a serious time of need.

Thank You and may God Bless You all!
