We're raising money for medical and home expenses for Paul Bozdech and his family. Paul was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer in June of 2022, and after multiple surgeries and hospital stays, he entered into hospice in late September. Paul passed away in his home, surrounded by family on October 6th. We hope to raise enough to help his family cover his medical expenses, home repairs, and school tuition for Paul's children. Paul has made his life's work caring for others, now we hope to honor his legacy by supporting his wife and children through this difficult time.
Paul, or Mr. Bozdech as he's known by his students, has served students in need since 1997. He has served as a tutor, a teacher, and a principal at various schools in the St. Louis area. In 2014, while teaching science and acting as interim principal at Loyola Academy of St. Louis, Paul was named the Peabody Energy Educator of the Year. Paul is a committed teacher, father, husband, and friend. He cares deeply about social issues and has always taken it upon himself to support those who need him the most. We hope to honor Paul's life's work and show him how many lives he's impacted by supporting his family during this time. Please feel free to leave comments for Paul, his wife, and his children or email them Donations are never expected but always appreciated.
