Travis Weiss Heart Attack and Passed Away at 32

UPDATE: Travis went off life support and he passed away on Friday, April 19.  His Dad and step-mom were able to get there in time thanks to generosity of others.  They need to be there for an unknown amount of time for the arrangements; waiting on medical examiner, as well.  Shawn (Travis’ Dad) is on disability due to his own hereditary heart condition and previous heart attacks, so money is tight.  Any help to keep them in Massachusetts as long as needed and to get home to Woodburn, Oregon is appreciated.  Any donations beyond the travel expenses will go towards Travis’ arrangements/memorial, to be announced.  Thank you, everyone, for your generosity and prayers and shares.  Even the smaller individual amounts add up and $5-$20 is huge when combined.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
 ORIGINAL Post:
On Sunday, April 14, 2019, Travis was standing at the top of the stairs and had a heart attack. When they found him at the bottom of the stairs, his head was impaled into the wall.  Travis was rushed to the hospital and is at the ICU Berkshire Medical Center in Pittsfield, MA. He coded twice Sunday and is currently on life support, non-responsive to requests to blink, etc.  

Travis’ Father, Shawn Weiss, is currently 2500 miles away from his son. Shawn is in Oregon and Travis is in Massachusetts.  Due to his own disability and financial hardship, it’s impossible for Shawn to get to Travis without help.

Travis is 32 years old, developmentally disabled, and the most kind, genuine, and loving person I know.  Travis is well loved by all his family and friends, always brightening up the day with his big smile and innocence.

For more information and other ways to donate or help, please feel free to message me.  Shawn is my brother-in-law and he is an exceptional father. His love for his children is selfless; he always goes above and beyond to ensure his children are happy and healthy.

This GoFundme is being set up to help Travis’ Father Shawn Weiss get to his son during this difficult time.  All the money raised will be used toward travel costs, accommodations, and other expenses related specifically to this tragedy.

Any donations will help. If you can't donate, please share. We also ask prayers so the family can go through this difficult time the best way possible.  We love you Travis.
