Help The Stephens Family













Hi My Name is Jason Stephens My Wife is Jessica we have 3 kids Logan-13, Kayden- 7, Lexie- 4. I am very humbled in writing this. I have always had a big drive for business and ministry and was successful in business very young. April 2011 we moved to Florida form Charlotte, NC area things have just gone down hill from there. I had a business deal that ended very bad for us and left us homeless living with my parents. In May of 2012 I went to be the property manager of a 10 acre Bible Camp Ground which we loved being able to live on property of such a beautiful place.  After living in a double wide on the property for 5 months were constantly getting sick and my youngest Lexie was taken to doctor 13 time in 3 months and finally we discovered a major black mold issues that had over taken the house and was deemed uninhabitable. Prior to this other than a few injuries and aching bones I was very healthy. Since the mold exposure I have really been struggling with my health and the last year has gotten much worse. After countless doctor visits to the specialist in just about ever category you could think of and countless blood, urine test and xrays etc...  I have been battling a chronic prostate infection but there was still more going on and none the doctors could figure out..... My primary doctor sent me to a Rhuematologist and after numerous test with him in the last month he was ruling out Rhuematoid Arthritis or a Detereating muscle disease.... This past Wednesday 12/3/14 after the last test he has determind that I have a Rare Muscle Disease that is progressing very quickly. In the last year alone I have gone from working 80-100 hrs a week with my business to having to give up my business and it is a daily struggle just to get out of bed from the pain and joint stiffness I can't work a regular job outside the house cause it is such a struggle to get going and leave the house. I have started an eCommerce business online and it's just like any other business.. it takes time to grow. The doctor is concerned with some of my blood test and that this muscle disease is starting to affect my organs and my kidneys are already giving me problems. My diagnosis goes beyond any local doctors and now I have to go to a University Medical Center that specializes in NueroMuscular Medicine. So why I need help which is taking everything within me to ask... Because I have always been then one helping and giving to others and I have never been on this side of the fence. I have been the bread winner so me not  working means no income my wife is trying to find something part time because fulltime will not work cause I am unable to look after the kids most days and as of the end of February we will have no place to live our plans were to relocate back up north but with these health issues we cant leave til the doctors know 100% what the issue is and our time at the camp we have been running, ends at the end of February and cost of living in Florida is not cheap so I am very humbled to go from being a man that has always provided for my family to now not able to take care them... It is breaking my heart. At this point making sure my family is ok is more important than my pride...If there is anyone that would be willing to help us get through this hard time, you would be a huge blessing to me and my family. Thank You and God Bless!!!
