Stevie Needs Our Help Now

Hi friends and family!

My brother, Stephen (Stevie) Jay,  collapsed this past weekend while at my mother's home and was rushed to the hospital where they discovered an old hernia injury had reared its ugly head.  While they were able to operate and repair the hernia, in the process, over a number of tests  were ran and it has been discovered that he has cancer in his colon, liver and lungs.

He has been a wonderful father to his four children that he has with his wife, Tina. He has raised them as his own and has always put their needs above his own.

Now he is in need and desperate for our help. He has no medical insurance and no life insurance and is currently without a home. He will be undergoing treatments and will be unable to work for some time. We are asking friends and family to please assist in making it possible for him to be able to focus on his health and his time with his family and not have the added stress of worrying about cost of living expenses.

ANY amount would be greatly appreciated and the sooner the better, please. Keep his family in your prayers. 

With sincere thanks,
Laura Jay Vernon
