Silva Family Medical Fund

On Tuesday, Nov 21st, our friend Stephen Silva was put in the middle of every parent's worst nightmare. His 12 year old son, Christopher, woke from a nap struggling with his coordination and ability to walk and talk. Taking him to the hospital, he was placed in ICU while a battery of tests were run in attempt to find the cause of the problem. After nearly 24 hours of questions and tests, they were able to pinpoint the cause and begin treatment. Through the Thanksgiving holiday, 3 days in ICU, he's now being moved to a regular hospital room as he continues to steadily improve. We are so incredibly thankful for this positive turn of events and can only pray for the road ahead. With that being said, imagine the medical bills that are involved in this level of hospitalization and the time off work that I'm sure is to come for Stephen and his wife. We just want to be there for them in any way that we can and are asking you to do the same. Please help these wonderful people have one less thing to worry about while they focus on their family and the healing of their son.
