As many of you know on April 6th, 2016 Ryan suffered a life-changing spinal cord injury following a devastating car accident. He broke C4 and C5 vertebrae and was told he was paralyzed from the chest down. Ryan spent the first two weeks in critical care in Utah and soon after was transferred via air ambulance to Craig Hospital in Denver on April 26th.
Through a tremendous amount of hard work and dedication Ryan is gaining more and more movement with each day he has at Craig. There is not a day that goes by that he doesn’t have a huge smile on his face and an incredibly positive attitude to go along with it. Recovering from a spinal cord injury is not easy; it takes strong commitment, patience, and money.
While Ryan has good insurance coverage there are so many expenses that insurance does not cover including home modifications, durable medical equipment, and access to specialized therapy. We are hoping with the generosity of Ryan’s massive community of friends and family, we can help offset some of these expenses and help him on his journey to walk again.
To help with the financial burden of Ryan’s uninsured expenses, a fundraising campaign in his honor has been established with HelpHOPELive, a trusted nonprofit organization that has been providing community-based fundraising guidance to patients and their families for more than 30 years. All donations are tax-deductible, are held by HelpHOPELive in the Southwest Spinal Cord Injury Fund, and are administered by HelpHOPELive for injury related expenses only. Please consider making a contribution to help Ryan make the fullest recovery possible.
With sincere gratitude,
Ryan’s Family and Friends
