Created April 8, 2019
On Tuesday, April 2, Russell “Rusty” Simms was involved in a pedestrian-vehicle accident walking in Berkeley, CA.  Russ sustained traumatic injuries and has been in the hospital, fighting for his life.  To date, he remains in critical condition in ICU, but stable.  He will need extensive rehab for all of his injuries, but presently is still heavily sedated. The amount of reconstructive surgery is yet to be determined.  As a former Skyline High School classmate of Rusty, I am working with several other concerned friends who expressed a desire for a GoFundMe campaign to assist Russell Simms any way we can.   His road to recovery is going to be a long one.  There is no doubt the medical expenses will be extensive.  Please consider a donation of any amount to help Russ and his family as our classmate, teammate, brother, cousin, nephew, uncle, colleague, friend.  Our ability to help as one community of friends and family could be Russ’ best motivation to overcome this setback and restore to full health and happiness.  Thank you for your prayers and consideration of support.

**STATUS UPDATE**

Rusty continues to improve. He has been in the rehab facility for 3 weeks now. He now has all his casts off but still is not allowed to stand on left ankle that was shattered. That ankle remains in "boot" (like a removable cast so he can shower). He still struggles with communication, but works hard to get his point across. He enjoys visits with his friends, like in the picture with Gary and Lajuan.
