Strength for Shak

$7,820 of $50,000 goal

On September 14, 2017, Sheikhnur “Shak” Jimale, was in a very serious car accident with four of his friends.  Sadly one young man lost his life that day. 


Shak is a 17-year-old junior at Shakopee High School,  he is a very outgoing kid that loves being active and keeping others happy.  You would never see him upset.  Shak is well liked by family, friends, and school staff.  Everyone who meets Shak, leaves with a feeling of positivity and the feeling that something great was in their presence.

As of  6 pm today, Shak will be undergoing a surgery to realign his spine.  Currently, he is on life support and sedated.  When the doctors do wake him, he is in a lot of pain and tries to remove his tubes.  If Shak does remove the tubes he will not survive so the doctor keeps him sedated.  He has blood in his lungs and internal injuries.  The doctors can not yet tell his long-term prognosis but after surgery may have a better idea of his prognosis.

We ask for your continued prayers for Shak, his mother and his 6 siblings, guidance for the doctors and nurses, and for the many friends and family that are worried about Shak.

  As a mother who has sat by her child’s bedside in a hospital not knowing if my child was going to make it I can honestly say that the last thing I wanted to think about was money.  Please help ease some of the financial burdens that such a devastating accident has caused.  The Jimale family is facing astronomical medical bills so please give what you can.

ShakoStrong committee member Kristine Robinson will be withdrawing funds to give to Shak's family.

Shak update: We spoke with Shak's brother Mohamed and he has told us that Shak is awake although he still has times of drowsines. He is trying to communicate with his friends via text and Snapchat. He still has a long road of recovery but progress is being made. Keep those prayers coming. #Shakostrong

Kristine and I had a wonderful visit with Shak's mother Fadumo ( Thank you interpreter Fadumo). He is still sedated. The trachiotomy was successful. Everyday is a miracle and blessing from Allah. Fadumo wants everyone to know that the outreach of love by the community has humbled her, simply because she didn't expect the outpoor of support to be so great. She said in the beginning that she would rather it go to the other families although she stated that if you give freely from your heart it is the purest form of kindness because it was given to honor the family. Although receiving a gift would be disrespectful by Allah if she didn't accept the gifts given, because charity takes presidence; as we presented her with foundation monies. (Hadeeth means that giving gifts may generate and increase love to one another.) She felt the love and honor from our community. As we held Shak's hand we told him as he was awake of all the love and prayers being given by the ShakoStrong community. Allah is good. #shakostrong

Shak had surgery last week on his spine. The doctors are optimistic. Shak is communicating with his eyes and squeeze of hands. He has been told that the ShakoStrong-Shako Saber Nation community is praying for him, he had tears in his eyes. He is grateful for the outpouring of love and community uniting

You got this Shak!
