Short Term Assistance

Luke recently suffered a stroke that affected his speech; due to 'sticky blood disease' that caused clotting in his carotid arteries.  Doctors at Shands Hospital are not allowing Luke to work for at least another two months in order to allow him to continue to heal and restore his speech.  In the meantime, general living expenses, speech therapy, and medical expenses are adding up.  Unfortunately, short term disability takes months and typically gets denied for younger people.  Luke's family is assisting as we can, but would appreciate any donation if you are so inclined.

We are looking forward to a grateful Thanksgiving and even more blessings in February.  His goal is to be in full health and speaking well for his wedding day on February 16th!

Many thanks!
