Montana Sky Smith is 21 years old and lives in Bluffton, Georgia. He is a fourth generation cattleman who has competed in rodeo events his whole life. Montana was a member of the Georgia High School Rodeo Association for 5 years and attended Southern Arkansas University and Athens Technical College.
Tana is a talented musician, with a great voice. He is self-taught on many instruments. His love for music was first sparked when he learned guitar to become a member of the praise band at Arlington Baptist Church. He is a member of Calvary Baptist Church in Dothan, Alabama and regularly attends there and at Bluffton and Balkum Baptist Churches.
Over the years Montana has been employed as a ranch hand, lawn maintenance and a meat cutter, most recently employed at MSM Meats in Colquitt, Georgia.
He was in a one-vehicle car accident on Sunday, July 13th at 1:35 pm. He was rushed to the hospital in Dothan, Alabama and underwent 10+ hours of surgery to attempt to repair his many injuries. He suffered a compund fracture of his ankle and heel, multiple fractures to his jaw, an open book fracture of his pelvis, a major laceration in the abdomen area and various other injuries that will continue to need medical care. He is currently in the Critical Care Unit awaiting surgery to repair the fracture to the pelvis. For this surgery he will need to be transferred to a hospital in Tallahassee, Florida.
Montana has taken amazing steps in the healing process over the past 10 days! He has additional surgeries to complete, rehab, healing and therapy at home. A timeline for complete healing and rehab is uncertain at this time. He is estimated to be out of work for a minimum of a year. Tana will need assistance with medical and rehab supplies for at home care, transportation for follow-up visits, rehab visits, therapy and even the basic day to day care to potentially be provided by a home health care nurse. This is just a basic summary because there are so many factors that we are still unsure of on his road to recovery.
