Raised by 62 people in 6 months
Hello Everyone, 

My name is Shawn Bliven. I was raised in Goshen, NY.  After graduating from Goshen High School in 1987, I attended the York College of PA, recieving my degree in HR Management.

I have had Multiple Sclerosis (MS) for over 32 yrs now.  I have tried all the MS Drugs out there and none have helped. All they did was make me worse. I can’t get around that well any longer. The MS has made sure of that. I must keep trying and learning about what else I can do. Now I have investigated and researched HSCT ~ Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation. I have been accepted into Clinic Ruiz in Mexico. The expense is quite high, over $54,500 for the treatment. Of course that is only a start. Plane fares, food, amongst many other expenses. 

This is the purpose of this fundraiser and I am seeking your support in this venture. I am so Hoping that this just might help me walk without assistance, throw a ball, maybe even dance a slow dance again. I know there are no guarantees. All I can hope for is to have a little piece of my life back! My life was never supposed to be like this. I never got married, had kids - MS never gave me the chance, it took everything from me. I am hoping that HSCT might be able to give me just a small part of my life back!

 I want to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart, I can never explain what just a small amount of normalcy means to me. With everyone’s help, I might just feel that again. I know thank you is never going to be enough, but Please Know, I will try to repay everyone by making this work for me!
All my love and thanks to everyone, Shawn

Hi everybody, Just wanted to give another update on my Fundraiser. To date $11,075 has been raised. I am so very thankful to everyone for all your support and well wishes. I will never say Thank You enough to all my Family and Friends for all the continued support and Donations.
GoFundMe is great, but the fees are pretty high. They have kept over $575 all ready. So, if that is the easiest way to donate, please continue. But if you are willing to donate and can mail a check, that would be Wonderful!
All my thanks, I will never to be able to repay everyone. Please know I am forever grateful. Thanks for the continued support and hoping we can keep up the fundraising momentium.
