The GoFundMe page was set up by Patsy Stephens, whose sister Rachel Lingo is the wife of Shawn Lingo and mother of Spiller. The goal is to raise $5,000 to help the family cover some of their day to day bills for the next few months while their loved ones recuperate. So far, $1,275 has been raised for the family.
