We greatly appreciate everyone coming together, please don't hesitate to reach out to us anytime. Love to all from Steve and Cheryl Gray and Aisha!+ Read More
Update at this time we would like to thank everyone for helping Ali, his 3 children, and parents, as he is home and it's been rough. We have appreciated everyone with whatever way they did and are helping. The fund was and is intended for traveling, fuel/gas, meals and food, personal hygiene not covered thru insurance, anything the kids need during these visitations, and anything that'll come up to Cheryl Gray(beneficiary) for Ali. I'm sure if you could imagine from that fatal call his parents received especially his mother, she has done nothing but be a mother at his side catering to every demand! This hasn't been pretty and will be far from over, its been downright emotional. Thank you to all his friends cheering him on and visiting bringing stuff, aunts bringing snacks and visiting, cousins there for support, Grandma's love, Cameron staying with him at his home and helping move him, parents for taking on his dogs at their house for that month and his kids the greatest gift in life! May Ali heal, love to all.
Ali is going to be transferring from the inpatient treatment at Loma Linda to an outpatient rehab soon, next Tuesday, March 19th!!! This is great news for him and all of us, it shows the power behind his fight and all his strengths. He will be back to his home but will have to modify his life at home . Everyone has been so thoughtful and generous on the fund, if you haven't already donated, visited, shared or sent messages to him please do so or continue doing so, we truly appreciate your help! The requirements for success for Ali at home greatly depend on accessibility, function, and adapting well. We are working on getting these needs met with sll your help and ours, love Steve and Cheryl Gray.
Good evening, Ali is now at the Loma Linda East Campus Rehabilitation Pavilion receiving top care as he may face another surgery for his shoulder separation, the aorta is healing though. He was told per doctor yesterday that he's a miracle, that he shouldn't have survived this accident. Those are some powerful and overwhelming words to hear, the extent of his injury is extremely severe and the worst case scenario. We will need everyone to keep his mind and spirt alive, make him feel the love and support we all graciously have for him, please pray. He is alert and funny, loves seeing all the familiar faces visiting. Keep sharing the fund and donate, no amount is too little and if a message is all you have to offer that works too! The pictures are of Dan shaving his head today, the pre surgery x-ray of thoratic area, and Ali in bed resting. Tomorrow will be the best, his 3 children will be hanging out in his suite with him, party on the patio! We love you Ali, love to all.
Good evening everyone, Ali had his chest and nose tubes taken out along with the oxygen, yay! He is trying his absolute hardest to maintain the pain levels and the emotional anxiety of being confined. He was ready to transition tonight to Loma Linda East Campus Rehabilitation Pavilion 25333 Barton rd. where he will have a strong focus on learning to adapt. It is encouraged for family and friends to join in this journey with him by visiting, participating, and helping him. We are all in your corner Ali and are blessed beyond to have you here. Happy Birthday, we love you and love to you all! Steve and Cheryl Gray
