Learn a little bit more about Stephen’s journey and check the blog to see how you can partner with them along the way.
We are raising money and awareness for Stephen Sandoval and his young family who have been living abroad in Denmark for nine years. Stephen is an awesome husband, father and friend and has contributed much to the happiness and well-being of those who have been lucky enough to know him. At age 30, Stephen suffered three aneurysms on his brain stem. The medical procedure used to stop the bleeding resulted in an incomplete lesion on his spinal cord, leaving him a partial tetraplegia (loss of limb control) and with a condition known as Brown-Sequard syndrome (loss of sensation and motor function). He also endures waves of intense nerve pain with these conditions. This unexpected, new journey has been life-changing for their family, but one they have taken with much grace and love. Stephen’s wife Dawn is an enduring figure of love, compassion and companionship as she cares for his needs and for their two children, Hope, age 5, and Esben, age 2. Dawn is a great blessing to Stephen in this and in all times. It’s been a year since this new struggle began and they need our help! Your gift helps share their burden so they aren’t carrying it alone. Your gift will go toward Stephen’s many medications, additional therapy, live-in help, public transportation costs and daily living expenses.
