Support for Steve & Deanna Menez

On May 8th,  Steve and Deanna were traveling on the freeway en route to their next honeymoon destination - 3 days after their wedding - and were in a major car accident. Deanna was life-flighted to the nearest hospital in Santa Clara where she underwent surgery to repair her broken neck and other spinal cord injuries. She will require therapy and full time care for the next several months. Deanna currently lives in So. California with her children and Steve lives and is self-employed in Folsom. However, she is currently in the hospital in Santa Clara and will continue to be there through this acute phase of rehab.  In order for Steve to be by her side, he will need to close his business doors temporarily. We are raising funds to help provide income for him to pay his living expenses so that he can be by her side full-time during her recovery and rehabilitation as well as other significant expenses beyond what is covered by insurance for Deanna as neither of them will be able to work. 

We would appreciate any support you could provide to help them in this time of need.
