Please donate as much as you can to help Shane receive the best care possible during his recovery.

My amazing friend Shane was in a motorcycle accident on Wednesday August 8th, 2012. Despite the fact that he was wearing a helmet, he suffered severe and extenive injuries. A doctor who happened to be driving by found him on the side of the road, gave him CPR and brought him back to life. He is bleeding from an inoperable area of the brain stem called the pons, which controls the most basic functions of life (heart beat, breathing, etc). Once in the hospital he was put on a sedative. Early thursday morning he slipped into a coma, once the sedatives were taken away. Shane is without health insurance and needs the help of both friends and strangers to ease his family's financial burden and help him get the care he needs to recover. I know some of you reading this, maybe most of you, don't know Shane. I hope one day you get the chance to meet him. He is the kind of person who challenges you to be better. It's impossible to describe his energy, love and kindness with these words. He is always positive, smiling and lighting up the lives of those around him. When he knew I was feeling down, he would leave me voicemails of him singing my favorite songs, or some silly tune he made up for me, just to cheer me up. I have hope that one day soon, with our help, Shane will be singing again.
