Help Bravo

Danny Bravo is a 39 year old man, recently married to Myra just a few months ago, who got in a heartbreaking mountain bike accident on Tuesday July 10, 2018 at around 7:00pm that broke his neck in 3 places.

Danny was on a trail that he was very familiar with, one that he had ridden dozens of times.  Although relatively new to the sport (about a year) his skill set was improving with every ride and he always rode within his limits.

Typically Danny would ride in groups with other mountain bike riders.  However, on this particular day he was not able to ride at the same time as his friends.  As Danny was finishing up his ride, he was crossing a narrow bridge over a small shallow ditch.  This was nothing out of the ordinary for a rider of his caliber.

In a freak turn of events, Danny ended up off the bridge in a remote ditch with his neck broken in 3 places unable to move, praying for help. To top off this perfect storm of events, he was alone and immobile for over 30 minutes. 

Fortunately another rider, whom he never met before, Chris Filmore, happened to be riding down the same trail.  Chris observed that Danny had been in an accident and was in a critical situation.  At that moment Chris immediately called 911 and The Fire Department and First Responders set out to rescue Danny.  Danny was urgently air lifted to OC Global Medical Center in Santa Ana.  Danny remains at the same hospital.  After having multiple surgeries, Danny's goal is to accomplish a full recovery. 

It will be a long enduring process, although Danny remains determined to be back to 100% one day.  His wife of only a few months, Myra, and the rest of their family truly appreciate everyone's support through this difficult time.  Danny is a spiritual man with high morals and standards.  He has an extended spiritual family who love and support him as well.

This fund is to aid Danny during this difficult time.  It will be used to help with the financial burden of missing work for a long period of time, his long rehabilitation process, and also medical costs.  

Any donation no matter how small will be greatly appreciated.
