The GoFundMe account reads:

This campaign has been created to help Steven Thompson recover from multiple gunshot wounds and continued attacks and threats on his life. 

After overcoming his addictions, Steven has been living in fear for the last four months as his past continues to haunt him.   He has had to separate himself from his friends and family for their protection.

In April 2018, Steven was attacked and shot in the leg.  In July 2018, Steven was attacked again and put back in the hospital.

On August 6, 2018, Steven was shot multiple times and left to bleed out on the street.  Thankfully he was found by people in the neighborhood in time.

The funds from this campaign will be used to help Steven recover from his wounds, reunite with his son and get his life back. 

Steven hopes his story will inspire others who are struggling with addiction.

No matter how many times you fall, get back up.
