On February 22nd in Wyoming, Michigan, Tom Stieglitz's mother was the victim of domestic violence for the last time. Tom's stepfather shot her and then himself. Now 24 year old Tom has to make the final arrangements for his mother. He is also going to court to obtain legal guardianship of his 15 year old brother Matthew. These young men have a long road of healing ahead of them. Tom must cope with the loss of his mother as well as his new role of guardian to his younger brother Matthew, who must cope with the loss of both of his parents in one act of unspeakable violence. With your support they can focus on that healing and less on taking over all financial responsibility of their home and livelihoods.
