Taylor Family

We started this fundraiser for LJ at the end of June although it feels like an eternity.  So much has happened during this time, including an incredible outpouring of love and support from everyone that knows LJ and even people who don't but know, through mutual friends, what an incredible person he is.   In summary, LJ had a sudden and large aortic dissection very close to his heart which resulted in emergency open heart surgery.  The surgery went very well but there have been significant complications since then including several small strokes and some infections.  He remains in the ICU at UVA Medical Center.  LJ and his wife, Jenn, have 4 children.  Their kids and puppy are being cared for by their incredible friends/family.  The focus now is to help Jennifer be able to focus on LJ and his recovery instead of the mounting bills and loss of income.  Anything you can contribute is greatly appreciated and will be put to good use for this beautiful family.  49242974_1594258690755667_r.jpeg
