Stefan and his wife Karen are parents taking care of their adult children Peter(24) and Philip(25) in Coral Springs, FL.
Peter and Philip were diagnosed with muscular dystrophy at the tender age of 5. At the time, Karen left her role as a nurse to care for their sons with the help of her husband.
Unfortunately, just a few short months ago Peter's lung collapsed, and the need arose for him to recieve treatment in the ICU of a local hospital.
Stefan and Karen are so loving in their care for their boys. They take turns making sure that their sons have the attention they need. The challenge with one in the hospital and another at home means that both parents need to provide as much care as possible.
The Schwarz home is one filled with a lot of love, and this turn of events places a lot of pressure and stress on the entire family. There are a number of goals we would like to meet:
-roof repair for the Schwarz home; theirs cracked after the long drought
-mold needs to be eliminated from the house as it creates a toxic environment for the whole family
-Peter needs better medical equipment in the form of an automated mattress and a wheelchair that is not painful
-private medical attention in the form of a home health aide in order for Stefan to remain working
Let's put our resources together to alleviate the financial responsibilities as much as possible.
