Always healthy; friend of all he meets – customers, family, high school friends, neighbors, etc; and running his own small business for almost 40 years; paying taxes which partly funds millions in need; He has been diagnosed with throat cancer and is currently undergoing Chemotherapy and radiation. He is fed through a feeding tube.
His company does not run without him - so he’s losing at least $4000 approx.a month. Minimum, not counting medical bills, status TBD.
So – The GoFundMe page. He’s refusing financial help (aka charity to Steven) from us all who know and love him, but we don’t think he can refuse a GoFundMe effort with tons of people each contributing just a tiny bit.
We are worried about his state of mind – as with anyone going through cancer treatment – you need a positive mental attitude to overcome all the drugs and pain.
The Bridgewater family would greatly appreciate any financial help here – $5 would be awesome - and if not – your prayers (for free) please.
We pray for $5 each times 4000 people; or whatever. $1 is still very cool.
Noteworthy connections to Steven (if you don’t know him) might include:
Glen Ellyn, IL
DuPage County, IL
Fireman -- both volunteer and paid (past tense)
Glenbard West High School
Roofers and Construction workers.
Husband and good father.
Thanks all !!!
Kim Bridgewater Shaver and family
