The trust has been set up by his sister, Barbara Rogers and according to my sources “This fund is for Steve and any extra medical bills plus any and all therapies he might need after he is discharged from the hospital.” (Thanks to the fine gals at Mommalicious right across the street from Zap, who shared this news in their monthly newsletter)

We were in Lancaster last week and walked past the sad sight of the Zap & Co. shop smoke damaged and boarded up. It was touching to see signs in neighboring stores on Queen street asking to pray for Steve, and everyone we spoke with from the area was sadden about the entire event.
