#CaleStrong

10 year old Cale is in the hourly fight to recover from a traumatic brain injury at Valley Children's Medical Center after falling out of a golf cart on Friday night 12/22/17. He has a fractured skull and extensive frontal lobe damage.  Cale is responding to his mothers voice which is really positive.  He will have a long recovery road ahead of him and his family will need help.  This GoFundMe will help with medical bills, hotel bills, travel, and recovery for Cale and his family.  Other donations that will help the family are gift cards for restaurants and gas.   

Today we celebrate because 75 hours after the accident Cale opened his eyes and said "yes," and held out his hand when asked if he'd like to hold a Dodger baseball. He is in pain and has a long way to go.  Cale loves the game of baseball, his beloved Dodgers and his B-Town Sliders baseball Team/Family.  

After a long recovery Cale will be on the mound and leading his team again soon.  Making unbelievable plays because he is a fighter, competitor, and a kid with a long, healthy life a head of him.  We look forward to celebrating his recovery victory like so many previous victories.  

Callie his mom will be off work for many months and will need all the help she can get.  This GoFundMe account will make this hard time so much easier for her.  Any thing you can give will help.  #CaleStrong
