Reese’s Unexpected Surgery Fund

Anyone that knows us can tell you that the last three and a half years have hit the Stephan family hard. From Kailey’s life flight, surgery’s and diagnosis of Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension in 2014 to repeat hospital stays in 2017 that finally lead to her staying home and her Doctor recommending that she apply for disability, it’s been a rough ride.

Kailey was approved for disability, but it will not begin until December 27th. Since May they have been barely getting by on one income. Reese was driving a fuel truck, hauling 50 to 100 pound hoses up and down ladders when his shoulder finally gave out. He has been unable to work for the past four weeks and finally had surgery to repair and ease pressure in his shoulder on October 12th. Recovery is at least two months and he will not be able to return to his fuel truck job. He is putting applications in to non physical jobs and we are praying he gets a new job soon. Until then the bills are piling up and Rent will be due November 1st.

Prayers for a new job and a fast recovery are first and foremost what we need. If you are able to help with the physical needs as well we would be so grateful.
Thank you and God bless,
The Stephans
