“Mike is doing well in therapy. He is now able to drive a wheelchair, which he controls with a sip and puff straw. He has regained a little feeling and movement in his shoulders, which allows him to be able to shrug. Mike is still dependent on a ventilator to breathe, but he is able to eat regular food and have normal conversations. He is working very hard and his spirits are up, which we attribute to all of the support that we have back home. Thank you very much for the continued prayers and positive messages!” – Mike and Sarah Flamion

Per the press conference today it was announced that Officer Mike Flamion was struck in the left side of his neck by a single round while on a traffic stop on 7/8/2016. The gunshot wound caused a catastrophic injury, which has left him paralyzed from the neck down. Officer Flamion is still in the Intensive Care Unit at an area hospital.

Officer Flamion is alert and recognizes his family, friends, and coworkers. Because of the injury, he is ventilated. He is able to answer yes or no questions by nodding his head and attempts to mouth words when communicating, which is hampered by his ventilation.

Officer Flamion and his family have been overwhelmed by the support of the Ballwin community and from around the world.

Thank you all for everything you have given both in the form of donations, but also your kind messages of support.

As you know Officer Mike Flamion suffered a gunshot wound to the neck during a traffic stop on Friday, July 8. Since that time, the community has shown overwhelming and unwavering support for Officer Flamion, his family, and the Ballwin Police Department. We have all been humbled by this generosity and thank you.

Officer Flamion is in an area hospital receiving exceptional care. He remains in stable but critical condition, however it is coming to light that his life, and that of his family will forever be changed by his injuries. He will require long-term medical care and we are confident that the community will stand by him on his long and difficult journey.

The family realizes that it’s impossible to thank each person individually, but they want you to know there are no words to express their gratitude for your ongoing support.

From the kind words and handwritten notes, to the blue ribbons hung throughout our city, to the food and financial donations. The family has been deeply touched by each one of these kind acts.

Again, on behalf of the family, we want to express our deepest appreciation for the incredible support you have shown over the past few days. Please check Officer Flamion’s GoFundMe page, https://www.gofundme.com/2dj4rtnt, for additional updates on his condition.

I took a check to the police station last night made out to City of Ballwin, with "police officer shooting" in the memo, per the instructions of the Ballwin FB page - I assume that check will still make it into this fund, correct?
