Stephanie injuries are extensive will take an extremely long time to heal. She will need more surgery in the near future.
She is still in the hospital and has a very long road of recovery ahead. Her husband Sean has been by traveling from Beaufort to Charleston around his work schedule to support Stephanie as much as possible, but the medical bills and loss of wages are daunting. The physical challenges and care for her family are her greatest concerns, Stephanie also has a young son at home. Due to immobility and extensive injuries, she will need a daily home health assistant especially when her husband is at work.
Please help support Stephanie and Sean Agatep as they try to recover from this tragic event and develop some normalcy in their home in coming months.
Please pray for her healing and for God to help reduce the amount of pain in her body.
