Support for Ashley and John Stagner

This campaign fund is completely for the financial support of Ashley (19) and John (17) Stagner. It will be for funeral costs, college tuition, and any other expenses they may need covered in these hard times. They have NO other source of income and are financially on their own.

The Stagner family had their world first rocked when they lost their father, Don, in February of 2015 to a freak snowmobiling accident in which he was killed.

About a year and three months later in late May of 2016 their mother, Dina, was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer which has since then metastasized throughout her body and the available treatments she was partaking in are no longer working.

Ashley and John have both had a full plate since their mom was diagnosed. Both of them balancing school, keeping regular jobs, taking care of their mom full time, along with handling all of the other trials that come with being a teenager.  As John works to complete his senior year of high school and Ashley to complete her sophomore year of nursing school, any help that can be provided during these hard times would be greatly appreciated. During these difficult times, these two deserve to have one less thing to worry about while they get on their feet and try to rebuild some sense of normalcy.

If you are unavailable to donate, then even a kind thought or a few nice words would be greatly appreciated to let Ashley and John know that they are not alone. Anyone that has been blessed enough to know this family knows the kind of compassionate and caring people they are. They  never want to be a burden or a trouble to anyone.

In the past year and a half, the amount that Ashley and John have been forced to grow up is unfair to ask of anyone. This has not been easy for them and the toll it has taken on them is something no one should ever have to experience.

If you do feel up to donating to help them out, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all of your support.
