The amazing Steve Schenkenberger is in need of our help! Steve was riding his mountain bike on Super Bowl Sunday around 8pm on Niguel & Ridgeway Avenue when he was struck by a hit-and-run driver. Thankfully, someone saw what happened and he made it to the ER. Steve has sustained injuries throughout the left side of his body, but the most severe are in his brain. He had emergency surgery the same night where they removed a piece of skull where he had a blood clot, which relieved pressure. He continues to have brain swelling and the medical bills are starting to pile up, quickly. Most importantly, PRAY...secondly, if you can help support financially it would be greatly appreciated. Steve is a Father of 5 young boys, ages 9 years-3 months old, and married to his incredible wife Lori. He is the sole provider for the family. They are an amazing, selfless, loving, wonderful family and they need our help NOW!

For donations made by check, please email Julia @ MrsJuliaHunter@gmail.com for details.

Latest Update

Thank you everyone for the insanely generous donations for the Schenkenberger's! We are all speechless of how incredible it is that the community has rallied around their family through this hard time. As you can see, I have just upped the goal number amount. The bills are coming out to be much higher than we originally anticipated. Again, thank you to every person that has donated; every penny makes a difference. Let's keep praying and spreading the word! xx

I went to the prayer meeting last night in the Chapel at Mission Hospital tower 2. It was incredible and they prayers are heart wrenching and beautiful. It was optional to pray out loud for the group and those that did so were very effective and raw. I will continue to pray daily, boldly and I am sure the outcome will be complete health restored, God needs Steve on earth to do what he does best, being Steve.
