StephanieSheppard Memorial& BrainstemTraumaFund

I had to experience the most unimaginable sudden loss of outliving my youngest daughter, Stephanie Sheppard, who passed on Monday, October 12. She was my baby and I will mourn her with every fiber of my being till the day I die and we can reunite with each other. Even so, while I’m still here on this earth I want to celebrate her special gifts, her unique attributes, and her pure vision of personal freedom without judgement. My older daughters, Samantha and Cydney, along with the rest of my family want to help ease the pain that this trauma has caused. So we decided to create this GoFundMe account to help with her medical bills and to seed the foundation in honor of Stephanie to raise money for brain stem hemorrhage research, the terrible thing that took her from our love. So, if any of you are thinking of giving your condolences please donate here. Her life was one filled with light, it reached far and touched everyone she met so please help us shine her light on others as our memorial to her. Thank you for all of your love and support in our grief.

A bright light in all this darkness is that Steph was an organ donor, one of her kidneys was able to match with her first cousin, Kelly Lewis. Our family is able to rest a little easier knowing that her other donations will help save the lives of many others. 

I will be in charge of setting up the foundation.
Thank you for your love and support . Susan Sheppard 51875238_1602623258307531_r.jpeg
