Show Shawn Aloha: I am helping to raise money for my brother and his family to assist with medical expenses.

On June 12, 2011 Shawn was taken to the emergency room with blurred vision, tingling hands and muscle weakness in his legs. Doctors initially thought that he may have had a stroke but all the necessary tests were saying otherwise. A few days later Shawn was diagnosed with a serious rare autoimmune disorder called Guillain Barre Syndrome. It is when the body's defense system or immune system mistakenly attacks part of the nervous system which causes nerve damage leading to muscle weakness, paralysis and other complications.

With the guidance of the lord, Shawn's symptoms stabilized and doctors were confident in releasing Shawn to the Rehab of the Pacific. Shawn will begin rehabilitation therapy to re-gain strength and control in his legs, hands and other parts of his body and we are confident in a full recovery. Doctor's say that recovery may take a few months or a few years. Nevertheless, Shawn is already concerned about his inability to work and provide for his family as well as the increasing medical expenses.

Shawn is married to his beautiful wife Monique and they have 3 children, Shawnee, Isaiah and Camille. Anyone who knows Shawn, knows that he has worked hard all his life to provide for his family, he is active in his children's recreational activities and Shawn is a very reliable person. He has a big heart and would do anything to help others.

Now we need to give back to Shawn and show him our love and aloha. Whether it's $1 dollar or a $100, your contribution will truly be appreciated and will help Shawn to focus on his journey of healing. Please help Shawn and Monique in their time of need.
