Christmas for a Hero Friday Night

87451839Rus Thompson sends us this email:

SSGT John Stanz arrived back home in Buffalo on Tuesday. John has been in rehab in Germany and now Pennsylvania, since he was injured in Afghanistan. This came as a surprise to his family but of course he is welcomed home, his parents home is just not ready.

Thank You Jackie Walker for getting his sister in contact with me, we now know just what they need to accommodate his needs for the next couple years. He needs an addition built on the parents home with a bathroom. I just recorded a commercial at WBEN which was donated by the Financial Guys, Mike Lomas and Glenn Wiggle. I would not have been able to do this on my own. This is where we need your help.

Buffalo/Erie County is a place with a huge heart. When they know of a need especially someone from the Military, they will come out in droves to help. We need something along the lines of another home make over. An addition to a house is really an easy project but it comes with expenses that none of us can afford on our own.

I will be contacting my suppliers from over the years to help and possibly donate building materials for this. A local contractor told the family it would cost $70,000 to complete the job. We have already had contractors ready to donate labor and I am one of them. I will do what ever it takes to help SSGT Stanz, he came very close to giving the ultimate sacrifice, two of his friends did, they were killed in the IED explosion that injured Stanz.

Marine SSGT John Stanz fought for us, now it is time for us to stand up and fight for him.

Will you consider helping us promote this and helping us ask  for help? When I found out how badly SSGT Stanz was injured and how little the government is willing to help, I decided this is a worthy cause. Seems once more the government has failed to take care of their own. He was sent to war, he fought, almost died and now he needs us.
