The friends and family of Scott Sly are uniting to raise money and are also asking for your help with support for his sister and her family.

Scott Sly was a man who was paralyzed quadraplegic at the young age of 25, when involved in a devastating automobile accident. Since then he had been living in a group home and more recently in a full time care facility due to his decling health. On Thanksgiving this year Scott lost his battle due to many complications from the quadraplegia.

About a year ago Scott had talked with his sister who visited him a few times a year although she lived in Ohio. She always stayed for a couple weeks each visit and during those times she would take Scott out on day trips to go places and do things he didn't get to do unless he was able to find a companion/caregiver to go with him. After Scott discussed with her the changes that he felt were happening to him and his thoughts that his time was nearing the end; she decided to move back to AZ to be with him and to spend as much time with him as possible. They both were raised by their grandparents who had already passed away which left Scott with no family that was nearby and visited regularly.

In June of this year his sister Kim and her daughter left and moved back to be with him while leaving the rest of her family behind to get things in order so that they could also move back to AZ and join Kim to be near Scott. During these past 6 months although Kim had been working here she traveled at least 3-4 times weekly to nursing home or hospital which were about 40 miles from her home to spend time with him and bring him his requested meals and needs. Due to increasing problems and recurring infections Scott probably spent more of the last 6 months in hospital than at his home (care facility). Each time he was sent to hospital she would take time off work to make sure he wasn't alone while hospitalized and facing death. While trying to do as much for Scott as he wanted or needed, and trying to keep 2 homes going until her family could join her (the rest of the family have joined her but unfortunately they were not able to arrive until the day after Scott was called to be with our Lord). Kim and her family have used all their resources and have put themselves in financial distress. We are asking that you could find it in your heart to help them recover from this emotional and financial crisis by donating any amount you can. It would be a huge help to them in getting their lives back on track.
If you would like to help by sending a monetary gift or any spiritual or emotional support, please send to:
