He’s married to his high school sweetheart, Kerry, an amazing woman and mother. They’ve both sacrificed so much for their two daughters.
Sergeant Copestick has given the last 12 years of his life, dedicated to serving the US Army. Iraqi Combat Veteran, carrying out one of his many deployments from 2007-2009. He has served proudly & selflessly for all of us. We are so proud of that!
Upon his return from Iraq, he was diagnosed with PTSD, as many soldiers are. It has never stopped him from serving or achieving his goals. Nor did it stop him from volunteering his time to go where he was needed.
In 2017, Steve graduated from Camden County College with his Associates Degree. It was a proud moment for him as well as his family.
On December 3, 2017, he woke up not feeling like himself. He was treated for a “panic attack” and was to be discharged. During this time, he had a grand mal seizure and spent the night in ICU. Following tests & careful consideration he was sent home. Unfortunately, he had not returned to the Steve we all know, so his wife brought him back to the hospital.
Tests have shown an infection in the temporal lobe of his brain. He is being treated vigorously for this unknown infection, which could possibly be a tumor. (We haven’t gotten that far as of yet)
I’ve set up this donation page in an attempt to help take some stress off my brother & his wife. He is currently out of work & not allowed to return until he’s fully recovered. His wife has missed several days of work to be by his side and I’m certain there will be many more on his long road to recovery. Pray for my brother & his family. Give with a loving heart and know that any help of any sort is much appreciated and accepted humbly.
I’ll leave you with this verse from 2 Corinthians 9:7 You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don't give reluctantly or in response to pressure. "For God loves a person who gives cheerfully."
Thank you everyone for praying, for reaching out, for being there. God Bless ❤️
