San Diego 10 News

Our courageous Collin, son, brother, nephew, and friend to all, was featured today on Channel 10 San Diego News. We want to make sure to share it with all of you, his Team of Supporters. Please continue to support the Bosse family with kind words and prayers. Every last one helps change Collin's life and our family when we need it most.

Our most sincere gratitude goes to everyone for your support, and for all that continue to help Collin along his way!

I don’t know if I will get as close to where I was before the accident in terms of surfing. But I will 100% surf again. There’s no doubt in my mind,” said Bosse.

On April 8th, Collin Bosse suffered a traumatic spinal cord injury. Thanks to the quick action of his friends, he was immediately transported to Scripps Memorial Hospital where he underwent surgery. Collin is in the ICU and receiving medical care from the talented staff who have done an amazing job to help our son, brother, and friend begin his road to recovery and back to his passion, surfing. Collin has been surrounded by loved ones during the initial days of his journey.

Collin's family and surf pals decided, after discussing the family's consideration, that this opportunity to raise funds for the path ahead was going to ensure he gets all the support he can. After overwhelming feedback from all his friends, this part of Collin's road is being paved by all of you!

Collin's accident is our family's "all hands on deck" moment. It entails many circumstances we have never faced and a pledge we have all made from love for our sweet Collin. The road forward undoubtedly requires our family to be flexible and able to adjust to the many financial requirements ahead. We are assured Collin's injuries will be addressed by the most capable and qualified doctors and professionals, but many of the services are not covered by insurance. Everyone who knows Collin will agree that he is an amazing human; his heart and soul are bigger than the challenges ahead. Collin's going to be surfing with his pals again!

Collin is an incredible and compassionate human being with a wicked sense of humor. At 23, has his whole life ahead. He lights up any room with his positivity and is an incredible surfer with a deep passion for the ocean. We have faith in his unparalleled dedication to any project put in front of him, including the events he must now face. There is no doubt that Collin will bring 110% of his strength and determination to the hurdles before him.

Collin's closest pals encouraged our family to start this campaign, something we never even imagined would be necessary. The support provided will help relieve the financial burden and would be greatly appreciated, no matter the amount. These funds will provide Collin with the medical care and rehabilitation he needs to return to being the amazing athletic, and dynamic guy we all know and love.

If you have any questions regarding donating, please don’t hesitate to contact his sister, Summer! (Summerb98 [@] gmail [.] com)

Thank you so much for the outpouring of love and support. It is beautiful to see how many lives Collin has touched.
