The Story

Ryan is a 20 year old, Colorado College student. On March 7th, 2014, he suffered a severe traumatic brain injury. After two weeks in the ICU he was moved to Select Acute Care Hospital, where he currently resides. Every week he shows us beautiful signs of recovery by following commands, giving kisses, and speaking some words. But recovery is slow, difficult, and uncertain. His family needs financial support in order to keep giving him the help he needs.

Hello Everyone,

It's been a while since our last update.  Ryan is making steady progress!!  He is currently on a theraputic break and is working hard at home.  Ryan goes to the local gym (Asana) once or twice a week to climb and really loves it.  He has gained a lot of his strength back.  

Although he is still unable to walk without assistance, his balance and stamina are improving.  He is still unable to speak but he is making progress in that area as well.    Ryan is now using his vocalchords to make sounds (a huge improvement) and is learning to form simple words

The weather here is improving and Ryan is stoked to spend more time outside!  

It was our hope to bring Ryan to Colorado Springs to attend his class' graduation next month. Unfortunately, that is looking less likely.  However, Ryan's brother, Erik will be in attendance!

This has been quite the past 13 months to say the least!!!  We thank you all again for your support of Ryan and our Family.  Your contibrutins continue to help with Ryan's expenses.  Thank you to those that have recently contributed and to those that have made the trip to Boise to visit Ryan!!  

It looks like this page will go "inactive" in 15 days.  Anyone wanting an update or to make a donation post April 31, can contact Marty (Ryan's Father) at [email protected]

Have a great Spring, everone!!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
