My Story

Welcome to our CaringBridge site. We've created it to keep friends and family updated. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement during this time when it matters most.

We are also in the process of setting up a fund for Steven. We are unfortunately unable to follow through on the logistics of doing so until an appropriations bill is signed and the government shutdown ends. We will post information when it is available, and appreciate your support.
