Help for a “former” Villen. Are we ever a “former” of this beautiful city? It runs deep in our blood and it always will.
Shawn Tiernan was born and raised in Somerville. He married his high school sweetheart and they have a beautiful daughter. They currently reside in Methuen.
Shawn is a graduate of Somerville High, class of 1988. He played sports while attending school there. Sports is a huge part of his life today. He plows for the City of Somerville.
Shawn needs our help. While playing in a softball tournament on March 4th, 2017, in MD, an aneurysm burst which caused him to have a stroke. He is currently suffering from paralysis on the left side of his body. He was at a hospital in MD for 3 days until he was transferred to MGH, which is where he is today. He is only 46 years old.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to help with medical costs and for future physical therapy that he will need to help him walk again. Please consider making a donation.
