The Sonny Johns Family Needs your Help!!

38141188_1554003627859541_r.jpegMy dear friend Sammie Johns has suffered a most devastating loss.  Late on March 29th, her beloved husband Sonny suffered cardiac arrest and left her alone to face life without him and with a 6-year-old son, Dylan, to raise on her own.  The last few years have been very hard on this family, as Sammie and Dylan both suffer from unique health problems that require long-term treatment.  It is difficult for her to seek traditional employment due to the unique nature of Dylan’s illness.  She has been a stay at home mom and wife for the last several years.  And although she continues to have a positive attitude about progress in her health and Dylan’s health and therapies associated with it, all of this is expensive.  She is so worried about how she will provide for her young son and all his needs, let alone the medical expenses associated these unique health problems.

Sonny had suffered for several years with medical problems associated with his heart.  So, the debt is already staggering, and life insurance is very limited.  His work provided a very small policy that will cover burial arrangements, but not much more.  He was a good man that always worked hard to provide for his family, but he is no longer able to do that.  His loss is devastating to his family.  Both Sammie and Dylan are in complete shock, as this was completely unexpected.  We are seeking to raise funds to assist with living expenses, medical expenses and educational expenses for Dylan’s future.  They are residents of the Austin, Tx area and would appreciate any and all support provided.  I urge you to help if you can, please!!
