Help the Hart family

Hi friends, this is Merritt Hays and Janae Sandman. Our friends, the Hart’s, could use a helping hand right now. Yesterday, July 14, Brian Hart was injured in a surfing accident at the Lane. He was rescued from the water while unconscious and not breathing. His rescuers were able to give him CPR until the paramedics arrived. Brian was put in a medically induced coma while being transferred to Valley Medical hospital in Santa Clara. His injuries include: a deep laceration on the left side of his head, a broken neck, a broken collarbone, multiple broken ribs, a broken lower back, lacerations to his legs and a broken ankle. The latest update shows that he has some swelling on his spinal cord between the c3 and c4 vertebrae. Yesterday, Brian had no feeling below his neck but he is slowly regaining some feeling and a small amount of movement in his legs. The doctors are waiting to see his progress before they determine if surgery will be necessary. Brian is a self employed hard wood floor contractor. Due to his multiple severe injuries, he will be unable to work to support his family until he’s able to fully recover. Your donation, whatever the amount, will help the Hart family with living expenses and medical bills while Brian recovers. We have been in contact with Veronica and Santi and they are very thankful for all the texts, prayers and well wishes. They are extremely grateful for the people who helped rescue Brian which ultimately helped save his life. The Hart family will be the sole beneficiary of this go fund me account.
Thank you all.
