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 had a successful surgery. The outcome is the best as it could be. The family truly believes it was all your good thoughts and prayers that led to the success of the surgery. With the extent of injuries Stef has suffered in the boating accident, these ups and downs are part of her road to recovery.

A prayer for Stef today would be helpful. Stef has been extremely sick the last few days and had to have another surgery tonight. She has made great strides but these set backs can be very emotional at so many levels. Tonight we ask for prayers and good thoughts.
