Please show support for my younger brother Chance Wallace as he recovers from a major spinal injury.
 During an annual family ski trip to Colorado Chance Wallace was in a terrible snowboarding accident on March 9th in which he shattered his C6 vertebrae. Chance was care flighted to St. Mary's Medical Center in Grand Junction, CO in which he immediately underwent emergency surgery. He spent several days in ICU and has since been transported via medical airplane to Baylor Institute for Rehabilitation in Dallas,Texas where he can be closer to home and begin his journey to recovery. The medical expenses continue to mount and this has been a life changing event for Chance and the Wallace family. Every little bit that we can give to support Chance will help to ease this traumatic situation. Your support and prayers are greatly appreciated. Chance, a junior at Tarleton State University, is a stand out athlete, a loving son, awesome brother, and caring friend. All of your donations will go directly toward his fight to overcome this setback, and we thank you in advance for your support.

Some of the expenses are as follows:
-Several days spent in ICU
-Medical transports within Colorado and back home to Texas
-Extensive rehab and therapy
-Cost of fuel, lodging, food

Thanks for continuing to support Chance and share the kind words! We are so grateful! He continues to gain strength both mentally and physically everyday. As most of you know by now, we are planning on sending Chance back to Panama this summer to undergo another round of stem cell treatment. The doctors said it was possible for him to have to return, so that he could maximize his healing potential. Well, now the moment is here. He is going back this July and will stay over there for one month. On top of that, we are enrolling him in the Project Walk program in Orlando, FL. The combination of these two therapies are the best there is to offer as of right now. Most of you know this can be a very expensive undertaking. I ask that you donate whatever you can, if you can, so that we can make this a little easier for Chance and his family. Feel free to share this story. I feel that Chance can be an inspiration to those out there who don't know him. His strength and determination is what guides all of us during this unexpected journey.
