Tristen fell last Friday 6/9/17 while doing something that he loves riding his horse Jazz. They are best of friends and while practicing for a horse compitition Tristen lost his stur-up and fell. For a healthy child is would of probably not been to bad. But for Tristen who is already super frail from battling cancer, a bone marrow transplant, double cataract surgury and having sever graft vs. Host disease. It was a tramatic fall. He was air lifted to Loma Linda Children's Hospital in ICU. He suffered bleeding on his brain, a large fracture that goes from above his right ear, down around to the base of his neck. He also suffered a ligament tear on his C1 and C2 vertebrae. His C3 vertebrae is broken. Tristen is a fighter and will overcome this obstacle. His mother Monique just left one job 2 months ago to start her own house cleaning business. So that she could homeschool Tristen. Due to his medical needs and suffering from chemo brain Tristen has fallen far behind. Tristen's dad Rick is working very hard to keep the house and their other son Kodee together. All while going from work to the hospital then to care for Kodee. Monique will have to cut back on clients due to being bed side with Tristen non stop. His after care will be intense. Tristen will be in a neck brace for 6weeks to 3 months. If you feel compelled to help my dear friends family. They would greatly appreciate any bit of help.
