Vincent (Shane) Blackwell

Benefit Fund at Twinstar CU

Vincent (Shane) has been hospitalized since December 7th. He is currently in the University of Washington Hospital in Seattle. He has pancreatitis caused by a gallbladder infection/stones. A cyst behind the pancreas filled with infected fluid leaked into the body cavity causing septic shock throughout. He now has two more cysts and three drainage tubes. He is sedated, unconscious, and on a respirator due to the infection and pain. He will be hospitalized for awhile, and when released will still not be able to work for a month or two. Then he will have to return to have the gallbladder removed, and have recovery from that.

Even if they were able to get some sort of help with the medical bills, there is no help for their living expenses.

This benefit fund is set up to collect donations for medical and living expenses for Amanda and Vincent (Shane). Amanda has been out of work for awhile. Vincent has no sick or vacation leave left and has no Medical Insurance. Bills are mounting every day, and they have no more savings. Any size donation will help. Prayers are always welcome.

Thank you to all who donated. I made it through and have been back to work since January. All the support has been a godsend and every penny was spent wisely. Thank you again.
