The Stambaugh family is in need of help. J.J.s medical bills and related expenses for chronic pancreatitis have become overwhelming.

J.J. Stambaugh was diagnosed with chronic pancreatitis in early 2008. Since that time he has been in constant pain and lost about sixty pounds. He frequently needs to be hospitalized due to this condition, with over sixteen hospitalizations in the last four years, and E.R. trips typically twice a month. Even with insurance, and the help of loving family and friends, this has led to excessive medical bills.
J.J.'s daughter, Beth is being deprived of a regular child hood due to these events. Her father is often unable to take an active role in her life. Frequently, she goes without things that many other kids take for granted. This has begun to take a serious toll on her emotionally and behaviorally.
Things looked like they were going to improve at the beginning of 2012. J.J.'s union helped him reach a settlement with his company. This closure enabled him to begin the process of filing for disability. However, a large chunk of the settlement was taken out to cover taxes. With J.J.'s wife only earning a meager teacher's salary, they did not worry about this as they would get the money back in the form of a tax refund.
However, some evil black-hearted villain that works at one of the many medical facilities that J.J. has been seen at sold his identity. The money from the taxes was given to a thief.
Now the Stambaugh's are faced once again with having to struggle month to month to cover grocery and rent expenses, and J.J.'s constantly snow-balling medical expenses. They had hoped to be able to do a family trip to Disney so that Beth would have memories of that with her father still around. Thanks to this villain, those dreams of an already emotionally fragile child have been shattered.
Please help the Stambaugh's with these expenses. They have done so much for the community throughout the years both through their professions and by doing volunteer work. Now that they need help, will you please show the kindness to them that they have shown to so many others?
