GETTING SHON BACK ON HIS LEGS

On Thursday July 20, 2017 our friend Shon Jones was having a normal day, creating Digital Designs for Tesla and having a lunchtime pleasure of intensive Crossfit exercise
with his colleagues. Little did he know that only 4 days later his life would change. During the weekend, he started feeling numb in his hands and feet, followed by a sense of tiredness
and lethargy. On July 24th, he was in the hospital completely paralyzed and not knowing what had happened to him. A little known disease known as, Guillan-Barré Syndrome had
attacked his nervous system. There is no cure but only time and intense rehabilitation.

Shon has been incapacitated since then but is making great progress. He is in therapy and being a natural athlete, exceeds in his daily training so that he may return to Tesla and
continue to create and work within our Design community. Unfortunately, due to the complexity of today’s medical plan, he can only stay at the care facility until December 15…We ask
for your help and kindness in securing some funds so that he may remain until December 31 in the facility that way he can spend his Christmas with his 3 children. If he is able to
remain until the 31st his 2018 Medical Plan will kick in and provide another couple of months of therapy. The job isn’t over yet and we can help and contribute. The per day stay at
his facility is $995.00 so please share a little and our hope is to provide $15,000 so that he may continue to improve.
