On the night of October 10th, Ben Miller of Neenah was taken into the hospital. He had lost feeling in the left side of his body and then eventually it took over the rest of his body. In his MRI scan it showed a hematoma crushing his spinal cord. They rushed him into emergency surgery where it was successfully removed.
In the first few days after Ben's emergency surgery, he still had no feeling in the lower half of his body. Ben is getting more mobility back in his right leg which is wonderful! He currently has moved out of ICU, which a great success as well.
Ben will be traveling to a rehabilitation center in Colorado with family at the end of the week to continue his progress.
Not only is Ben a beloved boyfriend to his girlfriend Crystal Dorton, but they are also parents to two twin girls who are turning 6 years old next Friday, and a 7 month old son as well.
With taking time off of work, and still having to keep up with three children, a house, and bills, this is going to be a very big life changing event for Ben and his family.
We ask that everyone please keep his family in their prayers as he continues to make progress and move forward.
Please consider a monetary donation to help relieve some of stress for them during this trying time in their lives. This is a family that was effected by something that was out of their control and they deserve all the kindness we can pull together for them as friends, family, neighbors, and co workers. We can all help.
