The Story

On September 8th, Trenton Bass sustained a traumatic neck injury during a varsity football game.  That same night, he underwent surgery to repair two broken vertebrae.  The surgery went smoothly, but evidence of paralysis is currently present.  He is able to move his arms and has some feeling in his fingers; however, at this point he does not have feeling below his breastbone.  It is hard to know if he will make a full recovery, but we are very hopeful that he will.  We have heard many success stories of patients who regain feeling and movement in the weeks and months after paralyzation.  


Trenton is 17 years old and just started his senior year at HBC high school. Not only is he a gifted athlete, but he is also a brilliant student and faithful follower of Christ.  Trenton is strong and a fighter.  If anyone can overcome this, we believe Trenton can - but he can't do it alone.  


The community of Hills and surrounding area have been amazingly supportive in the wake of this tragic event.  People around the world are praying for Trenton and asking how to help.  First, continue your prayers.  We know God is the ultimate healer. Second, we have started organizing fundraisers as Trenton's road to recovery is long.  Any funds collected in this online campaign will go directly to the Bass family to cover costs as they arise.  There is also an account at the Exchange State Bank in Hills that you can deposit money into.  We are grateful for anything you have to give - no amount is too small, and we cannot thank you enough for your continued support.

We thank God for this small - yet big, blessing for Trenton to be able to get some fresh air and sunshine! God is GOOD, all the time!

Congrats to the new HBC Homecoming King! Trenton tolerated being off of his blood pressure medication all day today, which is a big step toward getting out of the hospital. We ask that you please pray that God leads Trenton to the best rehab facility for him as he starts the most important phase of his recovery process soon.

Another solid day for Trenton. He had physical therapy this morning and sat up at the edge of his bed for 9 minutes, which is his personal record! He is doing very well spiritually and emotionally and can feel all the support and prayers for him. We don't know how long he will be in the hospital and we don't know what the future holds, but we do know that he is ready to tackle any obstacle thrown at him. Trenton's strength through all of this has truly been inspiring to us.  We are continually thankful for all of the support and prayers.
