A GOOD FRIEND NEEDS YOUR HELP!
On Behalf of the Shook Family.
My wife and I are close family friends of Allan Shook and his beautiful family. Allan is currently battling an ultra rare and debilitating disease called Autoimmune Driven Paraneoplastic Anti-Ma2 Encephalitis which has left him unable to work or even function normally. As the sole provider for his family, this has left his wife and two beautiful daughters wondering what tomorrow will bring. His pay will be stopping next month as he is unable to return to work at this time due to this horrible disease. With an uncertain future ahead, we are asking you to please consider helping the Shook family through this crisis so they can continue to help Allan fight to recover.
