We Love James Duncan

Our friend, our colleague, our coach, our teacher, and our mentor, James Duncan suffered a massive stroke on the left side of his brain on May 25th. This part of the brain affects movement on the right side of his body, short term memory, speech, and problem solving.

As you can imagine this has been quite a shock for James’s family. They have had their hands full with medical tests, doctors and insurance. They don't know what the total cost of treatment will be or how long James will be out of work, but early prognosis is at least a year or two including significant physical, speech, swallow, and occupational therapy.

We felt we needed to start something to help alleviate any financial stress so the Duncan family and James’s partner, Colleen Maxwell can focus on treatment and healing. Colleen has been part of James's life since high school, and will continue to be by his side and care for James and his children. The money donated will be used to pay for medical expenses not covered by insurance and to help with daily living expenses.

James has a long road ahead of him, but we know James has the strength, determination, and faith to recover to his fullest extent. Please keep James in your thoughts and prayers and thank you for your support. Your thoughts, prayers, generous donations and resources to help him heal are sincerely appreciated.
