Chance moved with his parents, Mike and Jolonda, from Texas back home to Arizona a couple of months ago. Since moving to AZ, he has quickly assimmulated and is imbedded in the AZ High School Rodeo Association as a standout Roper. While searching for the perfect home where chance can hone his rodeo skills, the family has been staying with some wonderful friends.
On Sunday morning, Dec 3rd, 17 year old Chance was involved in a serious vehicle accident . He is fighting for his life as his body lays in a coma and has sustained multiple traumatic injuries. We are hopeful Chance will awaken and his body will soon be well enough for the needed repairative surgeries.
Mike, Jolonda, and Cheyenne have not left his side, and appreciate the large outpour from friends and rodeo families spread from AZ, TX, OK, UT, and many more. His family and friends are gathered around him and bound by prayer.
Mike remarked on his fb page when looking at a photo of a person he admires, "This sure came to me today as I needed some strength and encouragement as I’m seeing my son here in this journey of life after his tragic accident. I know GOD has this and I truly believe it."
Mike and Jolonda have been asked repeatedly what people do, and right now, your love and prayers. If you are thinking that isn't enough, and you would like to do more, please donate to Chance's page to help cover the hospital bills which are sure to follow, as well as hotel and meals for those who gather around him in these hours of need and prayer.
Another way to help donote is to buy a special edition shirt being produced by one of Chance's rodeo team sponsors and family friends, Twisted J who posted to their website and fb pages:
"Chance Britain, a member of the Twisted J family and rodeo team, was involved in a serious vehicle accident in Arizona this last weekend. He sustained multiple traumatic injuries and is fighting for his life. 100% of proceeds from the sale of this tee will go to Chance’s family to help with medical expenses. We appreciate your support of Chance and his family."
