Support Shawn's Fight

On March 4th, our lives changed forever when Shawn Tiernan suffered from a stroke. A vessel bursted which caused bleeding in the brain which led to the stroke. He was rushed to the hospital. As of right now, he is currently in Baltimore, Maryland. He was away for a softball tournament with his team. He had collapsed in the middle of the game. His wife, Carla, and his mother, Josephine, flew out as soon as they found out. If you know Shawn, you know he loves to play softball and hockey. When he wasn’t working, he would be out and about at practice and tournaments or spending time with his wife and daughter, Casey. He was a huge part in Casey’s love for softball which they bonded over. He often helped out with her softball team as he was her biggest fan. This stroke has forever changed his life. He will not be able to play again or work again. And maybe not even be able to walk again at this point.

It’s important that he gets transferred back to this area not only for his family but to Mass General Hospital in Boston because they specialize in neurology. He may need surgery. He cannot feel anything on the left side of this body, which means he will need extensive rehab to hopefully get some movement back on that side. 

Please keep praying for Shawn and keep him in your thoughts. If you would like to donate, it would be much appreciated! The money would be going towards transporting him to MGH in Boston. I know money can be tight, so if you cannot donate, help us by just continuing to pray! He has a long road of recovery ahead of him! Please share and keep the positive thoughts coming this way. Thank you so much.
