Tony Nguyen Support Fund

$15,355 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 205 people in 34 months
On June 1, 2016, Just days after his High School Graduation from Pleasant Grove High School, Tony Nguyen sustained a neck fracture when diving into a friend’s swimming pool. Tony was just doing what kids do everyday and will now face the fight of his life. Tony was always doing something active. He played soccer for Pleasant Grove High School and was planning on playing for Cosumnes River Community College next year. 

No one imagined that Tony's next chapter of his life would start like this. We are asking for support for both Tony and his family as they start this journey to recovery. The money will be used to offset costs for the family, any equipment that Tony might need once he goes home, renovations for the home to allow Tony to move around easily, and to help pay for college once he is able to return to school.


Please continue to keep Tony and his family in your thoughts and prayers. The support from his friends and family has been inspirational, and your support and prayers will be greatly appreciated.

Tony's first night in Santa Clara was very restful. He feel asleep around 6:30pm and slept through everything which was good because he hadn't slept much before coming to SCVM. PT started working with Tony yesterday at 11am. They do not waste any time. His tests for his infection (trach) came back as mild so he is getting one round of antibiotics which should do the trick.

All of the pictures that people gave him and his "GET WELL TONY" poster are all up in his room. It gives him inspiration. He says its a little lonely there, he really misses his friends but he wanted to go to SCVM so he could walk again with his friends.

Yesterday he sat in a chair for 4 hours. Today he will do occupational therapy. They are thinking about switching to a smaller trach (trying to ween him off) and taking the staples out of his head on Monday.

Lynda Tony's sister is still with him. Yesterday, his parents, cousin Trena and friend Cresie all went to see him. We are planning to see him tomorrow.

Thank you again to everyone for your support and prayers, it means so much to Tony and his family.

Tony made it to SCVM safely. He was welcomed by all the staff and doctors when he arrived. He is in a much smaller room but Tony is happy that the TV works and he has a CD Player. Unfortunately, they discovered that Tony has an infection where the trach is so the staff put him on the strongest antibiotic that they could. This explains why he has had a fever as well. It is a small set back. Tony wants to drink chocolate milk and suck on a Jolly Rancher but can't yet. He is anxious to have real food.

The South Sacramento Kaiser staff and nurses called Santa Clara to make sure Tony made it safe and sound. Tony was a favorite at Kaiser. Tony's sister Lynda is staying with him now.
