Trey's Tribe

Gather around. I want everyone to take a knee and hear me.

I don't take people in close to my life, I don't care who you are, but those that I consider family, I will lay my life down for. I need you all to understand I do this out of love for Trey, Kelly, and Bryan. I cannot express how much I have been on bended knee for them.

Trey Smith, Bryan and Kelly Black’s son, was recently involved in a life threatening motorcycle accident. The accident left him unconscious and severely injured, requiring him to be airlifted to a local trauma hospital. He suffered skull fractures with an accompanying brain shear, a shattered shoulder, a broken C2 vertebrae, multiple facial lacerations and will require reconstructive dental work.

Upon arrival to the hospital, he was immediately treated by a great team of medical professionals and once stable, they were able to verify that he didn’t have any paralysis. During sedation the team was able to reconstruct his shoulder, stabilize his additional wounds and determine his vertebrae wasn’t impacting the spinal cord and luckily, that the break in his neck would not require surgery.

He recently had a scare with blood clots developing, but the hospital team has now determined that his neurological symptoms resulting from the brain shear are able to be treated with outpatient therapy and he was recently released from the hospital into home care.

The path to recovery is now beginning for Trey. Due to the nature of the Air Ambulance and his continued outpatient therapy falling outside of insurance coverage, I’ve created this fundraiser to help with the long road ahead.

Throughout this process, Trey’s incredibly supportive group of friends and family have shared updates on his status using the hashtag #TreysTribe
