How can I help?

Visiting Kevin 

Kevin loves getting visitors and getting out of the house. If you’d like to visit Kevin or want to help him get around, please reach out.


Over the years, Kevin has benefited from a strong community of support that helps pay for his care. As a quadriplegic, Kevin relies on nurses and aides to take care of basic needs, like getting in and out of bed, bathing and dressing, and helping meet his medical needs.  He also runs into expenses not covered by insurance, including the van that helps him get around, supplies, and other services that help him live a more independent life. We appreciate any help you can provide.

The easiest way to donate is by using this PayPal page.

We have also launched a GoFundMe campaign.

Please note that contributions are not tax-deductible.


We are tremendously appreciative of offers to help hold additional fundraisers for Kevin. We ask that if you are considering doing so, please consult with us before going forward. We are trying to coordinate events as best as possible to ensure that they will be well-attended and help meet Kevin’s needs. If you have a fundraising idea, please contact Joe Neary (Kevin’s dad) at


If you have particular services or equipment that you think might be beneficial to Kevin, please shoot an email to Joe Neary (Kevin’s dad) at

  2. Hello, We have never met and I don’t know you, your family or Kevin. I get emails from Lakshmi Salon and the most recent one was about Kevin. I cannot begin to imagine what your family is going through. I would like to help. I am an independent consultant with Arbonne which is a Swiss skin care, health & wellness company. I would be happy to donate 20% of anyones purchase of products through my website. When entering the shipping address the person ordering would just need to put (FOKN) after their name and I
    will forward the 20% to you.

    A few of us would like to purchase t-shirts and would like to know how we go about doing this?

    Thank you,

  4. I am totally inconsoleable after reading Kevin’s story in today’s Inquirer. So many times I had to stop reading because the tears just would not stop. To even try and imagine Kevin’s daily ritual and that of his caretakers, pains me so much (it’s unfathomable). When I read Kevin’s statement that staying alive is a full time job, it shook me to my core – I cried so hard I couldn’t see (I literally could not see). I am the mother of two sons (ages 22 and 24) both still live at home. I am fortunate they’re both healthy, independent and self-sufficient. I could not imagine my life (their lives) being any different and I am extremely thankful for all my blessings. Other than making a contribution, and keeping the Neary family in my prayers, I don’t know what else can do to help. However, I will make it a point to keep updated on Kevin’s progress and any future events. I would love to be able to give Kevin a big hug and kiss and to tell him he’s my hero.

    Church fundraising has got to be one of the easiest ways of fundraising that is out there. Everyone is willing to give to the church and is more than willing to help in any way possible. Church fundraising is fun and is a way of getting the whole congregation in the mood to help. Depending on what you decided to have as your fundraising product, it should go over very well.”
