The Story

On March 25, 2017, our friend Merlyn was enjoying the Hawaiian surf with his son Curtis, when he was tossed hard by a wave. His injury left him with a broken C5 vertebrae and significant damage to his spinal cord. Merlyn is currently working hard at his recovery daily in the Foothills hospital and focused on regaining the movement in his hands and lower body.

Once Merlyn joins Trish and the kids at home, his road to recovery will continue at Synaptic Spinal Cord Injury and Spinal Rehabilitation Centre in Calgary ( Synaptic is a private clinic that delivers intensive exercise-based therapy based on the understanding that our brains can re map. In addition to his physical therapy, the family is researching Stem Cell Therapy that has seen proven successes with his injury.

Merlyn’s Road to Recovery Benefit is a night dedicated to supporting Merlyn in his goal of regaining his movement. His attitude and determination to achieve this goal is unwavering. He asks for extra therapy at the hospital daily and every time he is asked how he is doing, his answer is often “awesome”. His strength and positive demeanor has inspired us all and is the foundation for his loved ones to persevere with this goal.  We are honored to be able to bring the communities of the Patrick family together for an evening of healing.  This is an opportunity for his friends and family to be a part of his journey to recovery. 

Please help us support Merlyn Patrick; family man, friend, coach, mentor, in his journey to recovery.  The team has set a target for one year of private therapy and one round of stem cell therapy at $100,000. This goal is achievable with your generous donation.  Thank you for helping us support a man who has made a life supporting all of those around him.

Very Sincerely,

Merlyn’s Road to Recovery Benefit Team

On September 16th, the communities of the Patrick  Family came together to honor Merlyn Patrick and his road to recovery after a devastating spinal cord injury in March 2017.

The support for Merlyn was overwhelming and the success of the benefit is a testament to the character of the hockey and lacrosse communities in Airdrie as well as the friends and family of the Patricks.

The result of this amazing evening was $139,598.00 in funds raised. These funds will go directly to support continued private rehabilitation at Synaptic Health and Neuro Rehab in Calgary and enable Merlyn to pursue leading edge stem cell therapy in spinal cord recovery.

The success of Merlyn’s Road to Recovery Benefit would not have been possible without the massive support of every person who volunteered their time in planning and volunteering at the event, every donated auction item, every business who donated their resources, every single person who contributed to that awesome night!

Merlyn’s Road to Recovery Benefit was a night to remember. Thank you.....

Merlyn’s Road to Recovery Benefit Team and the Patrick Family.
