Help Thomas Young's Recovery: Shooting Victim

Our oldest son, Thomas, was shot and beaten on August 17, 2021 during a senseless deadly crime spree here in Denver, CO. He is now paralyzed with a spinal cord injury and it is unknown if he will ever walk again. He will need months to years of rehabilitation in order to learn to live this new life of his.

As a young man with a bachelor's degree and a bright future, he tirelessly serves the public working for the state of Colorado for the past six years.

Being very active, Thomas enjoys and appreciates Colorado’s great outdoors. He loves running, biking and hiking in our beautiful mountains. As an avid biker, he participated in the 500+ mile Bicycle Tour of Colorado 11 years ago and still enjoys cycling to work and around downtown Denver.

Due to this heinous assault, he will need to move to a new residence since he will not be able to access his current residence on the second floor.

We are asking for any donations to help with his medical and rehabilitation expenses as he has been in the ICU/PCU since the incident took place.
Although he has a long road of recovery ahead of him, Thomas is very optimistic and knows it will take a lot of hard work and determination to tackle the obstacles and challenges he will face.

We appreciate anything you can share. Our family is immensely grateful for any support to help our son.
