On Friday July 8th, Kyle Robillard, a 17-year-old student-athlete at Duluth East High School, suffered a severe spinal cord injury. This injury has been life changing for Kyle and his family, but Kyle is going to adapt and move forward with the strength and kindness for which he is known.
Today, July 20th, Kyle moved out of the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit into Polinsky Medical Rehabilitation Center. This move mirrors a shift in our focus to provide the Robillards with financial support. Our goal is to eliminate all financial concerns for the family so they can focus on Kyle and his recovery.
Please consider contributing to Kyle's fund. He and his family will have substantial medical expenses and will need extensive adaptive modifications for Kyle in the near future. Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated.
Kyle is surrounded by a large community of family, friends, teammates, and students. He will continue to be the loving friend that we know, but he has a long road to recovery ahead of him. Kyle is determined and is working hard to achieve the best possible outcome from this terrible injury.
Thank you for your consideration and for your thoughts and prayers for Kyle and his family.
The Kyle Robillard Fund has also been set up at Republic Bank in Duluth if you wish to donate in person or by mail.
