Samuel Bergen

I am trying to raise funds for my nephew and his family. He was recently in an accident, where he received several injuries including severe head trauma. I would like to raise some money to help them pay for the hospital stay and the therapy required to get him back on his feet.

We appreciate both the prayer and financial support. They have been denied Medicaid and are without insurance, so any financial contribution is greatly needed.

Samuel hit a stationary vehicle left on the side of the road on 9/11. His brother Aaron was following close behind and witnessed the entire accident. He immediately called 911 and waited for help to arrive.

After arriving at the Denver City hospital, the doctors were able to stabilize Samuel enough to allow the Flight for Life to take him to the ICU at UMC. Once he arrived he was put on a ventilator to help him with his breathing.

At UMC the doctors discovered the extent of his injuries included bleeding skull fractures, a broken wrist and thumb, and a crushed bone in his ankle.

After several harrowing days in the ICU, and a few close calls, he was finally able to breathe on his own and allowed to regain consciousness.

On 9/21 he was moved to Trust Point Rehabilitation hospital, where he is currently undergoing physical therapy to regain his ability to walk, talk, and remember clearly. He will need to stay at Trust Point until November as he works towards regaining the ability to care for himself.
