GO ADAM!

$120,891 of $75,000 goal

Raised by 851 people in 18 days
Created July 5, 2019
As many of you know, on June 28th, Adam suffered a significant spinal cord injury after diving into a swimming pool. Adam was instantly paralyzed after hitting his head and subsequently drowned. If not for the heroic lifesaving efforts of those present who resuscitated Adam, this story may have ended much differently.  Fortunately, Adam was revived and underwent an extensive eight-hour surgery to attempt to repair the damage. He is currently admitted to the Cleveland Clinic Main Campus Neurological Intensive Care Unit.   

Adam is relentlessly fighting to regain his strength in order to be transferred to the MetroHealth Spine Center. The hope is that this will occur within the next week. Adam has been told to expect a lengthy inpatient stay at MetroHealth, but he has been given no definitive timetable. Adam has minimal use of his upper body and is unable to move his fingers.  He has no feeling from the waist down with the exception of slight feeling in his hips.  Adam has been told he faces extremely long odds to regain feeling in his legs and feet but Adam is DETERMINED and MOTIVATED not to abandon that goal.  

As you can imagine, Rohn & Judy will incur significant expenses in connection with his new normal, which will not otherwise be covered by insurance or other resources. Please help if you can.

Adam's family would like to thank the many friends, family and community members who have reached out to support Adam through this difficult time. The outpouring of love and encouragement has been overwhelmingly touching to them and instrumental in aiding Adam's battle to get himself as healthy as possible.

A few words from Adam...

To all of you who have given your support, kind words, and shown such generosity to me as I begin this journey:

I never imagined finding myself in the situation that I was in when I woke up the morning of June 29th. I woke up scared, dejected, confused, and feeling sorry for myself. But these feelings were quickly replaced when I heard about the support and the amount of people that had begun to rally around me. There is no describing what it means to me what all of you have done, and there is no plausible way for me to say thank you that represents my heartfelt gratitude. I also wanted to share with you how deeply touched my parents and sister have been with the outpouring of support. It has helped them immensely as well! Lastly, please know that I will continue to fight, I will continue to improve, and I will never stop. THANK YOU ALL.

Your unwavering support is what keeps me going,
Adam

When this campaign began it was not known, and is still not known, as to the level of need required. Accordingly, the goal was set at an arbitrary amount. That goal was met quickly and was reset a few times only to be surpassed just as quickly each time. While we will not increase the goal again, we will continue to accept donations as we are certain the lifetime costs will exceed the amount raised to date.
Thank you and GO ADAM!

GO ADAM!

Adam with his ICU healthcare support team. They were kind enough to let Adam feel the sunshine with a 20 minute excursion to the CCF rooftop yesterday. First trip out of his ICU room since June 29th.
GO ADAM!
