Help for Ronnie

This campaign is made for my dear friend, Jessica, and her eldest son, Ronnie, and their family. Tragedy has struck them last night when Ronnie was shot close-range in the back of the head:

He is currently on life support, awaiting multiple surgeries over the next couple days to be able to tell if he will make it through this. If he is to make it through, it is likely he will sustain severe, permanent brain damage, and possible blindness.
I personally cannot fathom the unimaginable pain they are experiencing right now.

So this campaign is made to help cover whatever costs they will incur over the next couple weeks. That includes Ronnie's medical bills, expenses for living, anything they could possibly need help with. Jessica runs a daycare out of her home in which she will not be able to continue while they work through this, and her husband will also need to take some time off work. This will definitely be a financial blow for them, not even considering the emotional blow.
Ronnie is truly a fantastic kid, and every part of this is heartbreaking for not only their family, but the people that love their family as well. They are amazing people that in no realm or dimension of reality deserve this. It is hard to process what's going on enough to pull this together, so know that any and all help, support, words of encouragement, and prayers you can offer will be deeply appreciated.

We love you Ronnie, Jessica, Ryan, and Jesse.
