Join Levi's journey to recovery

For the past two decades Levi has been a grey hair inducing child, the most loyal friend, and my fiercest protector. Levi is forever nicknamed as a Tasmanian devil in our family, he is ferocious, has an insatiable appetite, a notoriously short temper, however he is also the sweetest man I’ve known. 

On June 6th, my baby brother, Levi, was in a motor vehicle accident. He was life-flighted to Essentia Health in Fargo, ND. Levi was diagnosed with a Diffuse Axonal Injury, a severe brain trauma. He was sedated and put on the ventilator due to the swelling in his brain and the seizures he kept having. He was kept in a deep coma state for 48 hours to give his brain time to rest and heal. He is now off the sedation, seizure free, and his intracranial pressures are back to normal! We are waiting on him to wake up so we can assess the amount of brain damage. No matter what, we know that he will require extensive rehabilitation after this. 

Levi’s medical expenses are going to be astronomical. If you would like to assist with this financial burden, any donation through GoFundMe would be greatly appreciated. All funds raised will go directly to Levi’s medical expenses. 

On behalf of Levi, and our family, I greatly appreciate the outpouring of love, prayers and support shown over the past few days and undoubtedly, in the months to come. 

I thank you for your part in his journey.
