Rebuilding the life of Dametrius

$3,650 of $150,000 goal

Raised by 101 people in 2 months
This is my beautiful step-son Dametrius “Meechy” Shannon. He just turned 23 on December 23rd and he is one of the most loving and kind souls that I’ve had the honor to call family. He’s the type of person that has and would give his last for the ones he loves or even a complete stranger without hesitation or complaint. He’s a wonderful father, a protective and nurturing brother, a doting son, a fun uncle and a loyal friend. 

Yesterday morning, (Friday, December 28th) a man entered the home where he was sleeping and savagely beat him in his head, face & neck. This is where I should tell you that the person who committed this heinous act is 6’ 5” tall and weighs 200+ lbs. Meechy is 5’ 6” and 120lbs. 

Some of the injuries he sustained are an orbital fracture (eye socket), his mandible is shattered  (jaw bone) and his teeth have been decimated.

Unfortunately, Meechy does not have insurance to cover his procedures, rehab and other expenses for himself and his daughter while he recovers. Today he’s having the first of several surgeries to reconstruct his jaw and wire it shut for 6 - 12 weeks. This is the first procedure. Once his jaw bone heals he will need additional surgeries and there will be a very long road to rehabilitation. 

Total cost of his recovery is estimated around 300k so we're hoping we can raise at least half (150k) to alleviate some of the stress so we can focus on his health. Please take a moment to donate anything you can, leave a message of love & healing or share this campaign so that other can help. 

From the Shannon, Parnham & Perry family we sincerely appreciate your support & prayers during this time.

Thank you all for your donations, messages and words of encouragement. Meechy is home with us now and healing. It’s been difficult managing his pain and keeping him comfortable but he’s in better spirits and his daughter should be able to be reunited with him soon. I’ll have more updates on Monday when he sees his surgeon for follow up. So, please keep the momentum going. We have a long way to go to fully rebuild this young mans life. Thank you.
