Help for Ryan Lefevre
Take a look at the family below:
They are the Lefevres. Seem familiar? Maybe they remind you of your family, your friends, your neighbors. They’re just a beautiful smiling family enjoying a nice beach day together as many of us have this summer. Except for one thing. As of August 3, 2016 this was Ryan Lefevre, the father of the family’s, situation:
Ryan was found unresponsive at work. He had gone into cardiac arrest. It is unknown exactly how long his brain was deprived of oxygen. The doctors now believe he had a mild heart attack 4 to 6 weeks ago that his heart never recovered from, and all the while, one side of his heart was enlarging to compensate for the other, damaged side. Also a few days before Kristie Lefevre, the mother of the family lost her job due to outsourcing. Fast forward to today and Ryan is out of the ICU but still in the hospital. He has suffered from pneumonia and had a few minor surgeries to put in a feeding tube and a defibrillator. He’s still not able to eat or talk and has to learn to swallow and walk again. Once he leaves the hospital, he will be transferred to a specialty healthcare facility because he will require some long term medical attention that no one is equipped to give him at home. Dealing with his heart issues is currently on hold to focus on his brain function recovery.
As you can imagine this situation is taking a huge financial toll on the family. I usually am not one to ask others to donate to causes, simply because of all of the scams out there, but these are family member of our dear friends and I’ve been able to verify the circumstances. Being a stay at home Mom I often think of what I would do if my family underwent a similar situation. I would need help. I would want others to reach out to me and that’s exactly what we can do for the Lefevre family. Their family has set up a GoFundMe account to raise money toward Ryan’s care and their expenses. Please visit the page and donate if you can, or at the very least share their story. Every little bit helps and while we can’t take away the horrible situation this family finds themselves in we can ease their financial stress a bit so they can focus on Dad and helping him get well. Thanks!
