A little over a week ago, our cousin Sean Moore was involved in an unfortunate accident where he broke his neck. Sean’s C5 vertebrae was cracked in two. He has undergone two major surgeries to remove the cracked vertebrae to replace it with a titanium cage, which fused three of his vertebrae together. This was done to release pressure in Sean’s spinal cord in hopes he would regain feeling in his legs.
As of now, he is able to feel when his legs are touched or rubbed. His feet and legs are wiggling and twitching but, Sean is not able to control this movement.
The road ahead for Sean is going to be rough with extended stays in hospitals and rehabilitation facilities for physical therapy, all with hope he will walk again. He has limited insurance which does not pay for inpatient rehab facilities, or many of the things that will be necessary going forward.
For those of you who know Sean, you know he is tough! The family is hopeful he will return to his adventurous self and be able to play with his 2 year old son, Alec very soon.
Prayers are extremely helpful, felt and much appreciated. Sean has a young family to support and many reason’s to fight hard. No amount is too small and will be greatly appreciated by Sean and his family.
