On December 15th, Jace’s life was changed forever. This vibrant boy’s trip home from basketball practice was cut short by a head on collision in Castle Rock. He and his sister, Haevyn, were both rushed to the hospital. All others involved in the accident walked away with minor injuries. After three nights of observation, Haevyn was able to check out of the hospital with a fractured collar bone and extensive bruising, but no permanent physical injuries.
On the night of the accident, after multiple MRIs, concerns about spinal injury, and the need to correct internal bleeding, Jace was air lifted from Sky Ridge Medical Center to Children’s Hospital for further, critical treatment by pediatric specialists. In the days that followed, Jace has remained strong through multiple surgeries and mounting uncertainty that he will ever walk again.
Jace has been surrounded by loving family, and will be spending his favorite holiday (Christmas) at Children’s Hospital. His stay at Children’s Hospital will be followed by months of rehab. His family, and especially his parents, will be in need of your support to help get through these coming, trying months. Above all, we ask for your prayers and kind consideration. If you are able to help with other acts of kindness, we are seeking gift cards to Dazbog Coffee, Noodles, Chipotle, King Soopers, Sams Club and any Marriott and Hyatt hotel points to allow family to have a warm shower and bed to sleep in that is a minute walk from Children’s would be greatly appreciated. A meal train is being set up as well for Jace's siblings at home. if you are able to help with meals or offer other forms of assistance please email the family at [email protected] Please like “Jace’s Journey" page on Facebook to be kept up to date with posts from family and links to other ways to help.
