Stefanie and Brooke Schaffer were traveling on vacation with their mother and stepfather, Stacey and Paul Bender. On Saturday June 30th the family joined a boat tour to enjoy the sights off the island of Exuma, located about 130 miles south of Nassau. The boat bursts into flames shortly after 9 a.m.

Stefanie sustained life threatening injuries including a double amputation and remains in critical condition. Stacey suffered multiples broken bones and internal injuries. Paul and Brooke suffered bruises and cuts.

Brooke and Stefanie’s father and Brother are traveling to be with them in the Bahamas, George and George Jr.

We are raising funds for the medical and travel expenses.  With the support of the family, we have launched a GoFundMe page, in hopes to raise $50,000.00. We know their expenses will far exceed this as this becomes a life long struggle for this family.

Stefanie has had another successful amputation yesterday. She had to have an above the knee amputation this time. She is recovering nicely. And has a great support group waiting at home. But I know she would love some support. Everyday can be difficult, and these set backs are part of her life. But positive thoughts and prayers are welcome to keep her spirits high.

She overcomes her struggles everyday and pushes herself beyond anyone’s expectations. She’s enrolled in college courses again, works vigorously at her rehab and is even learning to drive again. A true inspiration to so many!!
