Mike "Boozer" Brown Fund

$8,650 of $50k goal

Raised by 127 people in 47 months

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!  


Anything would be a blessing! 
Thanks again

As most or all of you know by now, our BMX brother Michael Brown was seriously injured this weekend at the Reno national. He broke his back on the T10 and T11 vertabrae. The surgeons had a very successful surgery and were able to remove the bone spurs and relieve some of the swelling in Mike's back and reduce the paralysis as much as they could. The good news is Mike is in excellent spirits consid
ering what happened. He is ALREADY driving the nurses crazy! Mikes surgery will cost in the hundreds of thousands and his recovery and rehab will be in the millions. PLEASE find one of the many places taking donations(THANKS Chris Banks) and do whatever you can for our brother. I want to give a HUGE HUG and SHOUT OUT to Patty Hurt as well- she has not left his side since the accident and is a freaking ROCK!!! Stay Strong Mike- see you in 3 days buddy!

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

Mike, I had the same type of digger at Grands. Your gonna have to fight like a pit bull on a chain. You can do this your a racer! There is a network of guys just like us. Any thing I can do for you just call me 254 644 2373 any time day or night 24/7. Make sure some one is taking care of his skin don't let him lay in one spot to long. A pressure sore will prolong his rehab. Any questions please call me!
