Moving Mountains for Drew
We've created this site to support Drew with the costs of medical assistance, rehabilitation and physical therapy, costs of adapting his lifestyle, and his family's travel costs to be with him during a long recovery. These costs can run into the tens of thousands of dollars, so we want to give Drew as much of a headstart as possible.
Any donation, large or small, will move mountains to return Drew to the lifestyle he loves. Please help us get our mountain man back into the mountains by chipping in and telling your friends!
Drew has so much going for him. He is strong, fit, healthy, and stubborn as hell. He also has the benefit of a huge group of family and friends who send their gratitude for your prayers, positive thoughts, and love. He is an outdoorsman, a beer fiend, a little brother, a son, a friend to many, and a relentless pursuer of happiness.
Drew's currently recovering in Rapid City and is resting a bit more comfortably after leaving the ICU. When he's stronger he will be relocating to a world-renowned rehabilitation hospital focusing on spinal cord injuries. Once there, Drew will begin the healing process and start the work to get back to his active lifestyle.
Thanks for your support and check out his caringbridge site for updates on his progress.
While Drew is hospitalized and rehabilitating, his mother Bonnie Stephens will have access to Drew's GoFundMe account to withdraw funds as necessary.
He and his family are immensely grateful for and stunned by the generosity we've seen from friends and family, near and far. We've really witnessed the value of community in the past week and are all comforted knowing Drew has such a tight and broad network cheering for him. Thanks to all of you for your support and for spreading the word.
