Steve Berry- Plane Crash Survivor

$10,420 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 91 people in 36 months
Boone Family, please pull together to help support Steve Berry. Steve was one of the two survivors in the plane crash that occurred Monday, April 25th on the Boone Golf Course. He has a long road to recovery ahead of him. Any amount you can give will tremendously help, even if it's a dollar! Annette (Steve's wife) hasn't left his side. She didn't ask for help, but agreed they needed help. Her work family has created this page for them and will provide updates to his status as they are available. They are both unable to work right now and have large medical bills coming their way. Steve had to be air lifted twice on Monday. He is currently in Wake Forest Baptist Burn Center with burns to 50% of his body. He had lacerations to his face, multiple facial fractures, compound tibia fracture, he is a on a ventilator currently while being sedated due to severe pain levels, and was just diagnosed with pneumonia. Today, they started debriding his burns to apply shark and pig skin to prepare for skin grafts within the coming weeks. Any donation will go so far! Annette sends her gratitude for any prayers or donations you can make. Come on--let's help them out!

Update from Annette-

"Steve's tremors still remain. Medical staff say they aren't related to seizure activity, but possibly related to his previous stroke. Co2 levels remain ridiculously high, which scares me. Wednesday he was scheduled for surgery on knee flap, remaining surgery on his back, and doing touch up places where his body is rejecting the Integra. During surgery, they were not able to continue with his knee because they found needed tissue after all. Steve still has the tracheostomy and is unresponsive. His left lung is bruised, right lung collapsed. CT scan revealed lungs have become a new focus. He has a lot of fluid buildup and that is not good with pneumonia. They are inserting a new tube for drainage. Thank you for our outpouring of love and support. You have no idea how much it helps me so I can continue to stay by his side!"

Love,

Annette Berry

Update from Annette-

"Steve coded twice Wednesday night but they brought him back. They are doing an EEG to monitor for brain activity. Facial surgery and tracheostomy completed yesterday (5-12-16.) The surgery went well...Steve is a fighter and so am I! Some teeth had to be removed during surgery and his mouth is now wired shut. I'm okay with that, it's nothing a dentist can't repair. Pneumonia is still going strong. He has a lot of phlegm unfortunately. The doctors are still unsure if the stroke caused any permanent damage. We will know more once he becomes alert. He still remains unresponsive, but I am told this is to be expected due to his surgery yesterday. His head is trembling this morning and they can't tell me why. VERY FRUSTRATING. The docs are going to make rounds soon. Depending on Steve's awareness, I may go home this weekend to visit an empty house and lonely kitties. Thank you for your continued support and donations. You have no idea how much this will help!"

Love,

Annette Berry
