Tyler’s Motorcycle Accident

On Saturday, September 23 as Tyler was on his way to classes at San Francisco Community College, he was in a catastrophic motorcycle accident that was not his fault. He was hit by a car in a dangerous intersection, and taken to San Francisco General in critical condition. He has a long road ahead of him, with a severed spine and many facial fractures in addition to numerous smaller fractures and contusions. His first major surgery stabilized his back and fused his spine; his second major surgery will reconstruct the bones of his face.

Tyler is paralyzed from the mid-chest down due to his severed spinal cord at the T4 vertebrae. He will need support for many years in order to lead a full and productive life. Tyler comes from a large family that is doing everything it can to support him, his fiancee, his parents and his sister during this time of unimaginable pain. However his medical bills continue to rise, and wheelchair accessible housing for Tyler during his recuperation and rehabilitation will far exceed his ability to pay.

Tyler has always been an active, warm and generous young man. He loves his family, adores his fiancee, and dotes on his neice. It will take time and healing for him to rebuild his life - different, but just as fulfilling. With your support and prayers, we can help him move beyond this tragedy. Funds raised will help Tyler cover living expenses as he navigates this horrific experience, find or build wheelchair accessible housing once his rehab is done, and pay for ongoing medical expenses.
