Mike "Boozer" Brown Fund
Mike Crashed at Reno Bmx National on September 1st 2012. He underwent 4.5 hours of surgery and got out @ 3am. He has a shattered T10 and is paralyzed from the belly button down. He is in good spirits considering all that is going on. His mom Cathy will be flying up later today. He has at least a week up in Reno to keep an eye on him. The next 24 hrs are the most critical. Keep him in your thoughts & prayers. We need to send our Donations to Mikey to help him with his medical bills and long road to recovery!
When: Sept 22nd 10-12 signups
17100 Castroville Blvd.
UPDATE: So week one of rehab at Rancho Los Amigos for Michael is in the books... The one question that is still being asked by alot of you, is the "permanent" and the answer is YES... his injury a T10/T11 complete paralysis (which mean no feeling from the bellybutton down), however we have not given up hope of regaining some movement, anything would be a blessing.... Life is not over it it just being lived a little different.... Michael spent 6-7 hours a day last week re-learning how to balance his upper body, transfering from his wheel chair to the bed, the car and working on upper body strengh...seeing social workers to adapt to this new world. It has not been easy, but if anyone can handle it, Michael can, he has the will, strengh, determination, passion, attitude and TONS of love from YOU... he is so humbled by each and everyone of you and everything that has done to show support...the journey is far from over and week two starts today... he is ready for "work" as he puts it... this week there is much more to learn as Rancho will start the transition for Michael to go on "outtings with family and friends". Please continue to keep him in your thoughts and prayers... and again I personally can not say how much your love and support means to us... xoxo Patty...Michael
The time has come. Thursday 09/27/12 I am going to be going to my house to go over what needs to be remodeled to make it wheel chair friendly at 10 a.m. I have forgotten all the people that have offered to help me with this so get at me here so we can make this part of my recovery happen. Thank you for all the love and support Michael Brown.
