Jonathan Taravella Medical Fund

To all of our Friends and Family whom we love, 

Sunday morning Jonathan woke up and went to get out of bed, but he collapsed. He kept trying to pull himself off of the ground, but could not. His right side was acting different and he couldn't make out the words to describe what was wrong... he tried to get up again but his entire right side had no strength or movement, it was completely limp. 

We got him to the ER and after  quickly examining him , doctors were convinved he had a stroke. A million tests later, it was confirmed that he suffered a Ischemic Stroke, but have no idea what would cause a 30 yr old to have one.

Jonathan is slowly recovering but we will be seeing a specialist in Salt Lake to get answers, undergo hours of rehabilitation, and most importantly, prevent another one from happening. 

Jonathan is like no other man any of us have met. As you all know and have most likely experienced yourself, he is always there to give his time and help to ANYone who needs him. He is an incredibly hard worker who provides for his family and friends, and the upbeat, over the top, loving man we all know and love. He is the very last person to ever ask for help, so we are calling out to all of you for him. 

If there is ANY thing you can do to donate in order to help our immediate medical costs, travel, and therapy/specialist visits we would be extremely grateful. If you can not donate financially, please send a prayer for Jonathan and our family, as we could use the power of strength right now. 

We love you Jonathan! You will get through this, we know it. Strongest man we know...
