US$8,085.00raised of $10,000.00 goal
On Thursday, March 15, 2018, our friend Shawn Albritton was involved in a motorcycle accident in Florida. The accident put Shawn in a medically-induced coma with swelling in his head. His wife Mary Beth (pictured) is with him in Florida and we are in communication with her. She has spoken to doctors and they are tentatively optimistic. Yesterday March 25, Shawn was moved from the Emergency Room to an ICU room, stable and mostly sedated. Shawn is fighting hard to pull through, and neuro rehab will begin in a month or so.
I am John Mazzella, friend of Shawn. I have fond memories of Shawn working tirelessly to help me when I needed help, and I wanted to set up this funding page for Shawn in these difficult days. We are hoping to offset some of Shawn's medical expenses, so any amount of money would be most welcome. Please keep Shawn in your thoughts and prayers, and please share this page with anyone you like.
