Help a Hero In Need

    Officer Shayn Thornton is a remarkable young man who, at only 22-years old,  was diagnosed shortly before Christmas with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. He has already undergone surgery and chemotherapy, and now is facing a specialized radiation treatment at Mayo in Rochester that is not covered by his insurance.
    Serving his community is the backbone of who Shayn is. Today he is a police officer for the Bangor Police Department; but, his roots in servitude and community involvement follow his life's journey. Part of this journey enabled him to meet Emily, who became his fiance. In fact, they were supposed to get married this past winter. Unfortunately, bad news came on fast and furious starting last summer when doctors found a tumor in Emily that, while benign, had to be surgically removed. Before Emily was fully healed, Shayn found out the shocking news that he was about to undergo the fight of his life - a fight for his life.
    Instead of getting married and enjoying their young lives together, they are fighting for their lives and fighting to keep up with their bills, nevermind the mounting medical bills that show no end in sight ...and, all this while Shayn was just starting his career and Emily was trying to complete her college degree (expected graduation date of May 2021).
    This deserving man (and his fiance) need help - your help.  He is fighting a battle no 22-year old should ever have to fight. Let's not make this his battle to fight alone - let's make it OUR battle. Together we can help ease his suffering and help Shayn win his life back!
