On Tuesday, June 6th tragedy struck our family from all angles as our six-year old Jashown was the victim of escalating gun violence in the city of Wilmington, DE.
#FightLjFight is a fundraiser for JaShown Banner. On June 6, 2017 as Jashown and his family were at a stop sign in Wilmington, DE a vehicle crossed the intersection, blocking their path and someone began shooting at a person walking. To avoid being shot this individual used this families vehicle as a shield. JaShown was struck in the face and the bullet lodged into his C2 vertebrae. JaShown was given minimal chance of survival but now he is recovering. JaShown needs 24hr medical coverage, a specialized vehicle and home renovations for when he does return home.

Jashown is 1 of 7 siblings, a vibrant, high-energy, intelligent and charismatic kid that loves fidget spinners, playing with and annoying his best friend (big sister JoJo) and asking questions inside of questions...LJ just loves life.
Our family is holding on, and Jashown is a testament of our strength. The family has been able to witness the miracles that do exist take place. This is a slow process, but we are patient and time is on our side.
JaShown's parents are at his bedside 24/7. He needs 24hr medical attention and service. This is very difficult being that there are 6 other siblings and they must continue to supplement them with necessities including housing, dietary needs, compassion and most importantly time. Post his hospital stay he will need continued therapy and nursing around the clock.
LJ's road to recovovery asks for patience. We pray that he will be back to the fun-loving kid soon, we just ask for your continued love and support while keeping us in your prayers, and continuing to fight with us.
#FightLjFight. Jashown is a fighter always has been and always will be.
