Sean's Hit & Run Fund

My big brother, Sean, was involved in a hit and run accident on Tuesday night while riding his motorcycle on Admiral Way in West Seattle. He was in the center lane and the driver in the right lane flipped a U-Turn, hitting Sean and fleeing the scene. 

He suffered extensive damage to his internal organs, pelvis, body, face, and brain. Initial information from Neurology indicates that he may be in a coma for about a month or longer. When he comes out of a coma, he will have a long road to recovery, needing to rehab both his brain and body. 

If you're lucky enough to know Sean, you know that he's always quick with a snarky comment, a glass of whiskey, and a good laugh. He's infinitely warm and loving, always taking care of the people around him and remembering birthdays so well that it puts everyone else to shame. I could write forever about the kind of soul that Sean is, but my favorite thing about him is how much he adores his daughter, Adeline. Super Dad doesn't even begin to cover it. When Addie was in elementary school, the favorite parts of his day were walking her to school in the mornings and walking her home in the afternoon, talking to her about her day. 

Sean will have a few more surgeries in the short term and we won't know the extent of his brain damage until he wakes up. We are uncertain of the full extent of the expenses associated with his recovery, but these funds will be used towards his hospital costs, rehabilitation costs, any costs associated with outfitting his house with a ramp and other accessibility needs, and caring for Adeline. The funds will be released to his mother and girlfriend as they are at the hospital and with Adeline most frequently.
