Support for the LaCoste Family

Our dear friend, Kevin LaCoste, was in a freak accident this weekend and fell from a tree in his yard. The fall caused severe spinal cord trauma. He was med-flighted to MGH, where he has been receiving excellent care. That said, his situation is critical. He is not breathing on his own, and the doctors have decided to do an extensive stabilization surgery on his neck to accelerate the process of getting him to rehab. He has not regained feeling in his body below his shoulders. After the surgery, they’ll perform a tracheotomy so that he can talk, eat, and most importantly- be sent to rehab. The surgery will be this week, but the rest of the process is unknown. It’s going to be a long and difficult road ahead for the LaCoste family.  They are going to rely on so many friends and family for additional support. This support is what is driving  Ali, Natalie, Colin, and Kevin forward.
