Help Michelle Dodd bring her son Jason home

Michelle Dodd has 2 beautiful boys. Sean and Jason. On August 30th, 2020 their family was left devastated and in pieces when youngest son Jason decided to take his own life in Tennessee. Michelle lives in St. Louis Missouri and was 9 hours from her dying son when she got the call at 4:20am. 

As if coping with the tragic news of her son shooting himself in his head wasn’t enough, Michelle’s loving husband also died early in the marriage leaving  her to raise 2 small boys on her own. Also, Michelle’s older son Sean is disabled due to being the victim of a violent crime. As if all this wasn’t enough, Michelle also lost her job last month due to Covid-19 pandemic.

Michelle is trying to be there for her family while trying to stay afloat financially during this extremely painful time. Due to losing her job, she does not have the financial means to bring Jason home and pay for funeral expenses. Also, the medical bills are extremely costly. 

We would also like to draw light to the issue of suicide and hope that this page reaches someone who may be feeling there is no hope and we would like to let you know that there is. Suicide is a permanent solution to often a temporary problem and your life has so much value and purpose so we encourage to talk to someone who can help you navigate your journey. There   is hope I promise.

Suicide # 1-800-273-8255

Michelle needs urgent financial help from all of us to help her get through this tragic nightmare. Please help this brave woman support herself and family. Your support in this will go a long way and will help change the direction of Michelle’s life. 

Thank you, and please let me know if you have any questions and I’d be glad to answer them.
