Shawn Bortz Family Fund

Shawn was in a nearly deadly accident. He is still in ICU recovering from 2 surgeries removing part of his stomach and colon. His family is left without transportation to and from the hospital.

His parents also have their own medical appointments they need transportation for. Until insurance can help them, they need money for uber/cab rides, meals, and other various needs. 

Family is Bridget Broome, James "Jimmy" Broome, and Richard Bortz. 

If you are local here are other ways you can help: 
1. Offer to drive them to/from the hospital (You can Facebook Message Jimmy here: or call their land line 254-294-8882) 

2. Offer to bring them a meal - Details here: 

If you are not local, you can also arrange to have a meal delivered using the Waitr App:
