Help out my buddy who is injured and out of work

Help Jeff Recover From a Recent Injury

Hi, my name is Ryan Spencer and I am creating a go fund me for my buddy Jeff Scharpenberg. Jeff does not know I am doing this as he is not the one to ask for help or donations so to be able to present him with your donations would be out of this world awesome! 

I have known Jeff for only a few short years but in that time, we have built a great friendship. He would give the shirt off his back for anybody in need and you are always greeted with a big smile and a bag of fresh popcorn. He lives at home with his long term girlfriend, Vicki in which has medical issues herself. If you didn’t know her as a person, you would not know about her medical situation because she does not like talking about herself but would rather help somebody else and find out if they need a hand.He is an outdoor enthusiast. He enjoys deer and elk hunting when he is not on the water fishing in his free time. He also enjoys social activities to where he can talk about his most recent fishing and hunting trips. If he were to be mobile at this time while being out of work, you could more than likely find him at the snake river fishing for a trophy  

 His Passion for Woodworking
Jeff is a truck driver for a local chicken farm where he delivers eggs to western Washington. He leaves for work every morning at 3:00 AM. He is always open to talk about his excursions with trucking as he enjoys his job that much. Outside of trucking, he has a passion and a hobby of making hand crafted wood products. From bowls and cups to forks and lamps, he knows a thing or two about his craft. His products can be found at scharpy’ He is offering a 10 percent off sale of all of his products because of recent injuries to help his situation with paying for bills and to keep food in his home. If you like woodworks even just a little, you will not be disappointed by checking out some of his work so please look into it. If you are around Lind, stop in and ask for Jeffas he will be more than happy to showcase his products. He is not able to work with his tools at this time so please stop in and see his merchandise! 

Recent Injuries 
Last Week, Jeff had been in the back of his truck where his foot caught the tailgate sending him backwards to the ground. He sustained a 3/8 of an inch round rock into the back of his head which had to be pulled out by his doctor. Also he had fractured his pelvis in two different places. He is projected to be out of work for 4-6 weeks and could potentially be out for up to 2 months. He is not to perform any strenuous activities or lift in any form. He is to rest up as much as possible in which is a task in itself by the way he is always doing something. As an active person myself, I could not imagine being chair or bed bound when I know I have things that have to be done and cannot. When he gets around, he is to be in a wheelchair or use crutches. My heart goes out to my buddy and just want to make sure he can make ends meet at this time of need. If you can find it in your heart to make a contribution, I know it would be greatly appreciated. 

Jeff is to go to physical therapy up to 3 times a week between going to doctor visits. From medical bills that are not covered through his insurance, gas expenses, loss of work and being very limited in mobility, Jeffs expenses will continue to mount as time goes on. If in fact he will be out of work for 2 months, his losses will addup into the 10’s of thousands of dollars by the time he can get back to work and then try to get out of the hole. Sometimes bad things happen to good people, as in this case so if you havetaken your time to read this, I thank you! If you are going to leave Jeff with a donation, I thank you very much!
