**ORIGINAL**
On October 22nd, Styrling Kelley attempted suicide by shotgun. This GoFundMe is to help pay for medical bills and to raise awareness for suicide.

Styrling is 15 years old from Plaquemine, LA. Raised by his mom and dad, Melody and Marvin, and 4 siblings (Sylvia, Carrington, Zechariah, and Dayna). Their medical bills will be in excess of $10,000 when all is said and done, and there will be a long road to recovery if he makes it out. As of right now, he's still in critical condition.

On average, one person dies by suicide every 12 hours in Louisiana. More Louisiana residents die by suicide than by homicide on average every year. If you or someone you know is battling depression or just struggling to get through the day, please seek help. Call the suicide hotline 1-800-273-8255, available 24 hours everyday. Or ask your friends or family for help.

Any amount donated is helpful. If you can't donate, please help spread the word, keep him in your thoughts, and keep him in your prayers.
