On May 12, Stan Ellsworth, host of BYUtv’s “American Ride,” was diagnosed and admitted to the hospital with COVID-19. For much of the time since then, he has been in a medically induced coma receiving 100% oxygen from a ventilator as his body fights to overcome the virus. Stan’s wife Stacey reports that in the last few days, “they were able to dial his ventilator down to 50% and his body seems to be tolerating it. Their hope is that within the next two weeks they can begin to dial the ventilator down a little bit more everyday until he is eventually able to breath on his own.”
Stan and Stacey do not have medical insurance. Stan has already been in the ICU for nearly two weeks and has several more weeks of hospitalization and rehab ahead of him. This means Stan and Stacey will be facing staggering medical bills and Stan will not be able to return to work for several months.
Please donate to help this great man who has done so much for the cause of God, Family and Country.
As the star of “American Ride,” Stan rode his motorcycle into history telling the stories of the birth of our nation and our heritage as Americans. He has helped us appreciate the sacrifices of our Founders and heroic efforts of many others while taking us to the places where historic events took p
lace. As a popular speaker Stan has helped thousands of children, youth and adults gain a greater awareness and appreciation of our history.
We are all praying that Stan will survive this terrible virus. Our prayers are also with Stacey and their family.
And they also need our financial help.
Please make a donation today. All funds received will be given to Stan and Stacey Ellsworth.
