Brandon and some of his friends had gone camping for Memorial Day weekend and On Saturday May 27, 2017 Brandons friends tried to wake him up but he was not responding. He was taken to the hospital in Idaho falls by ambulance where they discovered Brandon had suffered from lack of oxygen from his sleep apnea. The damage was very similar to a very severe stroke and there has been damage to the thalamus part of the brain which helps open your eyes and be aware. They still are not completely sure what all of the damage will be due to swelling still on the brain, once the swelling goes down and Brandon is more aware they will be able to get a better idea of what the damage really is. Sami Brandon's wife met Brandon at the hospital in Idaho but had to leave behind there beautiful 14 month old little girl to stay with family! They tried to get him transferred to the university of Utah so they could be closer to home but unfortunately there insurance will not pay for it unless it's a emergency. Brandon is such a fighter and is. Beating the odds but he is still in the early stages and has a long road of recovery a head of him! I have decided to set up a gofund me to help sami and Brandon will medical and living costs as they are both out of work and not exactly sure when sami will be able to go back. Sami and Brandon are the most genuine people and if anyone deserves help it is them. Anything helps. As wells as prayers for Brandon that he continues to progress so he can get back to his amazing wife and beautiful little girl.
