The family and friends of Shane would like to raise as much as we can while he heals. Please show your support!

Shane started out before Thanksgiving with three numb toes. And by Christmas had turned into both of his legs. We brought the new year in with a limp. His symptoms got worse until Valentine's day when he sneezed and one of his arms went numb.And another sneeze got the other arm the same night.
When we got to the ER they scanned him to find that he had the three disks in his upper spine, that were pinching off the flow to the rest of the spinal cord and if he would have sneezed harder or wrong he would have severed his spinal cord. So, after one long surgery to add cadaver bone, and hardware the neurosurgeon had to go back in to pull out the bottom two screws and put in shorter ones, as the first ones were doing what the disks were originally doing.
He just got home and now cannot work for at least eight weeks and with five kids to support you can imagine the stress he is gong through to figure out how to provide for them.
Your donation will go towards paying the medical bills that are not covered by the insurance, utilities, and bills that cannot be paid since he is not able to work for at least three months. If you are unable to make donation online there has been an account set up at the Valley Bank and Trust in the name of Karen Beavers.
