To everyone who may or may not know Jeremy Huff. Prayer’s are in need for him and his family. Jeremy is the sole provider for his family or four. He and his wife, Stephanie have a 1 year old daughter Ellie and a 4 year old son Henry.
On Sunday, November 4, 2012 Jeremy and a friend were trail riding on their motorcycles. Jeremy hit a rock which launched him in the air and down a 10-20 foot cliff landing on his back. Jeremy was wearing a helmet, which thankfully saved him from head injury, but left him with multiple spine and shoulder injuries. His buddy was able to carry him out and save his life, as if he would have left him to get help Jeremy might not be with us today. X-ray’s were taken at Memorial Hospital then told and he was immediately air lifted to Harbor View.
X-rays revealed a clean break at T9, and shatter burst fractures in T7 & T8. Another x-ray revealed a fracture at the base of his skull near C1 and C2. His Upper Left humorous was broken in multiple areas near the ball joint. This is a miracle, as where the breaks were the doctors warned his family that he could be paralyzed. During the surgery on Jeremy’s back they have put rods and screws from T5-T12. These will be there permanently. He has no nerve damage from what the doctors have seen so-far, and after surgery the doctors noticed that Jeremy could move his arms and legs and told his family that he would walk again.
Jeremy has a long road to recovery he will be in Harbor View until his doctors release him. Jeremy is in need of any help he can get. His family members have opened an account at Banner Bank, donations can be made at any branch. Just tell a branch representative that you would like to make a donation to Jeremy Huff’s account. Selah Lions club along with a few other Lions clubs in Yakima County have put together a fundraiser dinner in support of Jeremy and his family. More information about the event at the bottom of the page.
Please continue praying for Jeremy and his family. His kids are currently staying at their Grandma’s house. When Jeremy returns home we will put together nightly dinners for their family. If you are interested in helping with a dinner please contact Ashley Burmaster at firstname.lastname@example.org or post a note on facebook and she can put you on the list.
The Huff, Gamache and Burmaster family’s want to thank everyone ahead of time for all your prayers and support. Continue to keep them in your prayers. Stephanie Huff has an open facebook account if you would like to add her as a friend she will be posting updates and photos on Jeremy’s recovery. We have also opened a recovery facebook page that you can see posts and comments and prayers for Jeremy and his family. You can also click on the link there to make donations.
Jeremy wanted me to write this for him."Thank you to each and every person who is helping me out in this very hard time. I especially want to thank my friend who saved my life, if it wasn’t for you I most likely would not be here today, So Thank You" -Jeremy Huff-
