The Schenkenberger's need some help

$58,747 of $100,000 goal

Created July 25, 2017
Hello beautiful people of the world! I am making this campaign on behalf of one of my best friend's Lori Shenkenberger, her kids, and her husband Steve. They could really use some help right now. Here are a list of needs for the Shenkenberger family and what they need to pay for:
1. 24 hour nurse care for Steve when he comes home to the outpatient housing.
2. Outpatient therapy: occupational, speech, and physical therapy in Colorado.
3. They also need a sprinter van. This is a wheel chair accessible van for Steve, Lori, and all 5 boys to be able to get around town, therapy, grocery, etc.
4. Plus money for a live in nanny for the 5 kids, while Lori is on Steve duty 24 hours a day.

Here's the story:
Steve Shenkenberger was riding his mountain bike on Super Bowl Sunday when he was struck by a hit-and-run driver in Laguna Niguel, California. Steve was found by two good Samaritans (thank you for helping my friend). Steve has been in a coma since February, he is currently in a minimally conscious state. His body and brain are currently healing after the accident. He has undergone many surgeries and painful injuries all over his body and brain. Steve is a Father of 5 young boys, ages 9 years to 8 months old. They have 2 babies in diapers. Steve is the sole provider for the family. Lori is a warrior handling their lives while Steve is still in the treatment center. In an incredible effort to give Steve the best care she can give him, she has moved her entire family to Colorado for the summer. Whilst Steve is improving every day, Lori is exhausted managing their lives, being a mother to 5 young boys, paying high medical bills, giving Steve physical therapy, and sticking by his side constantly. Lori is completely over whelmed at the moment with her new way of life. Just a few weekends ago their home was burglarized, they took hundreds of dollars in cash meant for Steve and the kids, credit cards, and donated gift cards. Lori just cant catch a break.

Please help out the Shenkenbergers in their moment of need. They are pillars in their community. Even with such a big family they have always opened their hearts and their home to friends and family in their community.

Steve and Lori have a beautiful love story, they have been married for 10 years and dating since high school. They are in their mid 30's. This money will help Lori to have piece of mind as she goes through this emotional time. This money will go toward Steve's extremely high medical bills, food, household bills, and care for the kids. The money will also more importantly go towards Steve's therapies and hopefully toward a new sprinter van, that is a wheel chair accessible car. Steve's bill's will continue to accumulate for the next few years. In all the years I've known Lori she has never asked for anything.

Thank you for loving hearts and your generosity,
Monique

Hey hey world,
I hope everyone is about to have a relaxing labor day weekend with friends and family. I just wanted to update you on Loris needs. Steve is still very much in need of Lori for survival and daily needs.
Good news the kids were excepted in to school with financial aid and are excited about the new school year. They are in need for money for school events, clothes, field trips, lunches etc. Lori is at home with the the two babies which will be 2 years old at the same time for a week or so this year (they are 10 months apart in age).

They are running this event as well from Lori:
"Help these Warriors off set school costs!! You can support SVCS and The Schenkenberger Boys by buying a $10 golf ball for the annual golf ball drop fundraiser and you have a chance at winning $2,500 if your ball is closest to the hole. Such a fun event and the kids get treats if they sell their $100 goal in golf balls. The more they sell, more expenses will be covered, to help them to go to this amazing school! Thank you from RAD!!!!"

Hello everyone, it's a while since I gave the last update of the Shenkenbergers needs. If you have a little extra change around the house Lori and the kids could really use Trader Joe's gift cards. They love to shop at trader Joe's to get the kids all the snacks for all the energy 5 boys need to tire Lori out. Or you can simply give money here as well if you feel thats the best thing to do for you.
