Christmas Eve Changed My Brother's Life

My Name is Christopher Barbknecht and I live near Albany, NY.  My family was visiting me for Christmas from Indiana.  On Christmas Eve my family and I went to Mount Snow, Vermont for a family skiing trip.

Here my 15 year old brother suffered a terrible skiing injury and his life was forever changed.  His injuries include multiple facial fractures, a broken neck, broken ribs, double pneumothorax(collapsed lungs), and a spinal fracture at his T8 vertebrate that has left him paralyzed from the breast bone down.

There is a facebook page created to follow his progress and to send thoughts and prayers: http://www.facebook.com/noah.barbknecht

Any donation will go to his treatment and rehabilitaion and home modifications.

If you cannot donate, please keep him and my family in your thoughts and prayers.
