Local skater is starting to raise money for a mother suffering from COVID problems

“I never thought that my drive to the ER with her would end up with her losing consciousness in the waiting room & the staff rushing to find her a bed. My mom is the only one I have left,” Shinn said.

“My mom and I were already barely making it with her working 12-hour shifts, and me working 2 part-time jobs as a 17-year-old,” Shinn said.

“I created this page because not only do we have no expenses for her hospital bill, but I also need to find funds for all the home bills she’s left with me (home rent, phone, car, etc.),” Shinn added.

Shinn created a GoFundMe to help with basic living expenses.
