Evan Mallett

On Saturday, April 25, 2020, 17 year old Bowie High School junior, Evan Mallett, was in a serious car accident with two of his friends.  We are so very thankful that Evan and his friends survived this catastrophic accident.

Evan is recovering from two surgeries to straighten and stabilize his spinal cord. He's currently on a ventilator. He has a teardrop fracture  of the C4 and C5 vertebrae of his spine, multiple bones broken in his back, damage to his lungs, and many other injuries.  His diagnosis is quadriplegia. Evan's neurosurgeon has predicted that Evan has a 10-25% chance of regaining some use of his hands and feet, but we are praying and believing that Evan will surpass those predictions.   

Evan is a cherished son, grandson, big brother, nephew, friend, and teammate.  He is resilient and disciplined, and he is no stranger to hard work and sacrifice.  From the time he could hold a football, he worked hard to be the best quarterback he could be, and he looked forward to playing football in college.

We KNOW that Evan will walk again. 

To help Evan meet this goal, please consider donating to support his medical and rehabilitation expenses.  All money raised will go toward getting Evan the best rehabilitation available, and ensuring that he can still pursue his post-secondary educational goals, despite the loss of athletic scholarships.

Thank you for your support and for the outpouring of love and generosity Evan and his family have received. His family is very grateful for this beautiful, loving community, and for the wonderful care he has received from all of his nurses and doctors.

We can't wait to see our sweet Evan walking again.

This campaign for Evan is being managed by his stepmother, with all funds going directly to Evan’s mother.
