Brian's Medical Fund
In June of 2015, Brian suffered a tragic mountain biking accident that left him on ventilator support and paralyzed from the neck down. Despite his long and difficult journey through rehabilitation, Brian has maintained the part of him that people are so drawn to: his unparalleled appreciation of life and a commitment to find beauty everywhere he looks and in every situation. Although his journey is far from over, he will once again return to the mountains that made him feel alive with the TRAILS adaptive sports program at the University of Utah Hospital. In the meantime, Brian continues to require 24-hour caregiver support, adaptive equipment, and other medical needs. Help support him by donating to his cause. Thank you.
This fund raiser is being managed by the parents of Brian McKenna, temporarily residing in Salt Lake City,UT to be with their son. Funds raised will be used to purchase a wheel chair accessible van and begin to cover the cost of full time professional nursing care in the home. His parents will be using the donated funds to directly cover these expenses.

With my most sincere appreciation & gratitude,
Saw your incredible story on Ellen. It made me wonder if you'd heard of Bridging Bionics in Aspen, CO. Their motto is bringing mobility with bionic technology. If you'd like more info please let me know and I'd be happy to put you in touch. Praying for you and miraculous healing!
Hey Brian, I saw you on Ellen! again. So happy to see your smiling face and to hear youre off the vent! Im a caregiver for my good friend Keith who is also living with a spinal cord injury. His level of injury is an incomplete compression fracture T3/4. He was injured back in 1997. I was at his home when I saw your update on Ellen! and raced to his room to turn the tv on so he could see you and hear your story. We both had tears in our eyes as we watched and listened. Unless you've lived it, its hard to really understand. Your love for life and contagious smile is motivation for other spinal cord survivors and able-bodied people alike. Keep on keepin on dude!
