Shaun Moorhead is a family man, a man of God and an awesome "Helper" extraodinaire. He is a gifted Electrician and the guy you want around you when you have work to do. He is a friend. I can't remember a time when Shaun wasn't part of the youth group leadership at church, and driving a herd of teens to youth camp to spend a week there being a leader and mentor. He and Jennifer have been married 19 years and have an incredible16 year old son, Cameron. Shaun has been fighting health issues for years, but you'd never know it. He is a regular at church and always willing and available to help a friend with remodel projects (He'll even help someone he has never met). Shaun has been on a transplant list for a few years. On June 4th he went to the hospital with sepsis, and was soon diagnosed with endocarditis (infection in the heart valves), which led him to needing open heart surgery to replace 1 heart valve and repair another. During his extensive hospital stay, he has also been suffering from seizure like activity in his brain, and has had multiple strokes. Althoug the surgery went well, Shaun's recovery has been complicated by several setbacks. On top of already having suffered from 2 strokes before going into surgery, Shaun went into cardiac arrest on July 6th, and needed 2 rounds (4 minutes) of CPR along with other medical interventions in order to resuscitate him. He was in an induced coma for several days, and remained in a comatose state and on a ventilator for a week. During the cardia arrest, Shaun had a 3rd and more damaging stroke that has made him unable to talk or walk, is not very responsive, and there is a question about what his physical and cognitive function will be. These events have affected Shaun's progress to the point he will need extensive rehabilitation after he is released from the hospital. Shaun's recovery will be on-going, with an unpredictable outcome. We serve a big God, and are hopefull for his future. He is being prayed for daily by hundreds of people; as he is laying in a hospital bed. Jenn tries to arrange for someone to call nightly and will hold the phone up to Shaun's ear as people pray for his healing. He is mostly unconscious at this point, but will respond to voices occasionally. Shaun's recovery will take time, maybe years. He is only 46 years old.
Jennifer is a business owner and has been trying to balance the responsibility to her customers and also being present with Shaun and Cameron. Your donations will allow her to stay fully focused on her husband and child as they go through this incredibly difficult time. Your practical help would replace income she would normally receive from her business and defray the massive medical expenses that are not covered by insurance. It would help to relieve the stress and burden of worrying about finances, and allow the family to focus on Shaun's needs for recovery. We all are walking through this with the Moorheads. Would you consider joining this campaign and making a donation to help?
