Steven Donovan needs your help

In late December, Steve & Diane Donovan were celebrating their oldest daughter, Jessica’s birthday and with their youngest daughter, Jackie and her boyfriend, who both live in AZ were visiting for the holidays. Steve was taking Jackie & her boyfriend wild boar hunting (no surprise right!) then the unthinkable happened, Steve collapsed and has been in a coma since 12/21. His potassium was very low at the time which could have caused cardiac arrest.

If you don’t know Steve Donovan from the New York Insurance Industry, he's the big guy in the room always with a smile on his face. Steve is a fixture in the industry for 30+ years and is loved by all and has helped many of us at one time or another.

Steve spent many of his weekends making home improvements on friends and associates homes because Steve would always insist it was no big deal, if you needed something moved, Steve would show up with his huge truck and simply move it.

However that all changed on 12/21, Steve continues to improve but it is going to be a long climb. Steve has improved breathing and is no longer on a respirator and very recently the tracheostomy had been capped and he is now breathing on his own. An early Valentines Day gift we said for Diane. He has been opening his eyes and he even laughed once.

Although he is making progress this is going to take some time, Steve and his family have immediate financial needs and his wife does not work.

It won’t be long when Steve is moved into a facility up in Jacksonville Florida (distance wasn’t an option) the Donovan’s live all the way down on the Southwest Coast of Florida and insurance will only authorize this facility. Steve is only there for 21 days then he will be brought home where his family has decided he would get the best care and they are not financially prepared for this.

Please help anyway you can, if you can give a lot great, however even a little will go a long way and most of all please share this with others.

Thank You in Advance for your generosity.

Friends of Steve & Diane Donovan
