Help Gunshot Survivor Vance Allen

On the morning of Friday September 21st my Brother, Vance Allen was shot 4 times by his son's mother's boyfriend inside the home he shares with his 6 year old son in North Carolina. He was rushed to the hospital and straight into surgery to try to remove the bullets in his abdomen that did not pass through him. One of the bullets is still lodged near his pelvis. Although he lost part of his lower intestine his surgery was successful and he continues to improve daily. 

Vance has been out of work since September 14th due to the hurricane and now is unable to return to work until he has recovered..I am asking for help to relocate my brother and nephew as he does not feel safe or comfortable returning to the home where the shooting occurred due to the trauma for his son. All funds will go directly to relocation, support during recovery and medical bills.

Vance has such a big heart, he is an Amazing Dad and his positive attitude even in the eye of adversity is so admirable. The smile on his face is contagious.  I would love nothing more than for him to have a safe home with no bad memories to continuing doing the great job he has been doing raising his son.

Thank you for taking the time to read his story.
