Taking Care of Chavez

$960 of $2,000 goal

Raised by 22 people in 13 months

Hello, my name is Evander Russ and I am currently training to be a Licensed Practical Nurse in order to take care of my brother Chavez Russ full time.

Recently the family learned our mother will not be returning this year to be his primary care giver, this and the uncertainty of who will be around reliably to take care of Chavez has made me realize that I should step up to be there for him.

Chavez is a normal guy, he enjoys the same things we do, he is just paralyzed from the neck down. Worse is due to a lack of transportation he is limited to the house making personal interaction with the people he cares about all the more important.

Currently I am studying full time and at night usually providing care for my brother. Getting consistent work is difficult in this situation but I have no option than to keep moving forward.

If you would like to support the cause then please donate, or better yet we can work something out. All of the support goes to cost of transportation.

Thank you for making this happen!

Hey guys, all I have left to do is a CPR training this Saturday and then I'm in class on Monday. Thank you for getting me here. I couldn't have done it without you all.

If your still interested I will keep this up all academic year long if you want to keep sharing.

I will personally keep trying to make whatever deal I can to keep pushing through school. The only obstacles are the tuition bill in December and the gas/travel wich is a tad harder due to gas prices increasing.

More updates and story soon.!

Again thank you for pushing so hard for our cause.
