Raising a child with special needs is something no one else except the family can truly understand. And when God blessed Shannon and Tom with this wonderful child, they welcomed the challenge with open arms. However, the stress of such a life takes its toll. In October 2012, Shannon was diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis, a disorder similar to Multiple Sclerosis. She was forced to stop working for months as she struggled to gain control of the physical symptoms affecting her daily life. She has had to undergo two surgeries since her diagnosis and currently maintains a regular routine of intravenous blood treatments which are physically taxing and extremely expensive.
Shannon and Tom are the most incredible parents I know. Their love of family and the strength they exhibit inspires me daily. It is for these reasons and my love for them I have established this website. Asking for help does not come easy for any of us at times and this family asks for nothing but love and support. However, with mounting medical expenses, lack of a consistent second income and expenses of homeownership I know they are in need. Therefore I ask you to please find it in your heart to help this extraordinary family with any donation you can afford. Thank you and God bless!!
