Ethan C. Locklear's Medical Fund

Just before Mother's Day, on May 11, 2017, our son Ethan Cole Locklear, age 23, suffered a stroke while asleep.  The stroke affected his spine, which left him paralyzed.  CPR had to be administered.  He is now a paraplegic, in a wheelchair, currently doing rehabilitation at the Shepherd Rehabilitation Center in Atlanta, GA.

Ethan's condition has required a family member to be with him at the hospital and the rehabilitation center daily.  Structural changes have to be made to the family home to accomodate Ethan's needs.  Medical bills are mounting and medicines have to be purchased.  Ethan will also have special medical equipment needs.  Travel and lodging expenses have been challenging.  This whole experience has been quite expensive.

We are calling on the generosity of family, friends, neighbors, and others to help us.  We realize times are tough for everyone.  Anything you can spare will be greatly appreciated.  We are a Christian family and believe in the power of prayers.  Please keep Ethan and our family in your prayers.  Thank you in advance for your gifts of love.
