Steven's Story:
2:35 pm Sunday October 18th changed my life forever.  I was shot by two teenagers which left me partially paralyzed from the waist down.  Can you relate to your life changing in a heartbeat?
I am 19 years old, I did not have the best childhood, and I was just trying to get by day to day.  I had just started working construction and finally making some money so I could get ahead.  Now, I have more challenges ahead of me.   Before my construction job and this happening to me, I struggled with shelter, feeding myself, and little hope for my future.  Today, I am unable to use my legs like I use to, my football playing days are just a memory.

It hasn't been an easy life for me, but because of this, I would like to be an example.  We all deserve a second chance in life.  Even the kids who shot me, I hope they get the help they need and become better than they were that day, at that moment when the trigger was pulled.   I know I can’t do this alone and I need help not just today, but also in the future. If you can relate to needing a hand up in a time of desperation, I would greatly appreciate your kindness!  There are many things that are going to be required for me to be able to function normally.  

Your assistance would help purchase a handicapped van, rental housing, medical needs, and many other items that will now be required for me to live my life.  God has given me a second chance and I want to make God’s gift of life worth it and return stronger than before and hopefully be a voice and example for others.  

I appreciate your time to read this and your helping hand in lifting me up to be able to live a more productive life.

I want to thank everyone for all the support and well wishes and a SUPER THANK YOU to all those that have been helping me daily!
