Timmy Brodigan is the youngest son of Mike & Robyn and my youngest brother. He is 16 years old and is an active young man with a bright future ahead. Loves sports and being active. He was on his way to visit family in Oregon when he boarded the Amtrak train on December 18 2017. He was rushed by medivac to Mary Bridge and immediately underwent multiple surgeries. His injuries were a compressed spinal cord at C5 vertebra as well as some brain bleeding and head laceration. He has a long road ahead and anything you can donate would be greatly appreciated. Family will need to be off of work to help care for him on his road to recovery. Please share and continue to pray for my brother.

After over a month of many ups and downs Timmy will be continuing his journey in Colorado at Craig Hospital. This is a wonderful facility that specializes in spinal cord injury patients. We truly believe he's in the best hands in the nation. Timmy has a long road of recovery ahead so your continued prayers and thoughts are certainly needed at this time. This is an emotional move for our family but we know it's for the best. Timmy currently has feeling in his legs however no movement at this time. He also still doesn't have mobility in his left arm. We will continuing praying for his full recovery. Thank you to everyone for all of the love and support you have and continue to show. ❤ #TimmyBStrong

Timmy has been moved to Childrens Hospital as of today. This is a good move for him and his recovery.

They do believe that Timmy has an intestinal infection called C-Diff. This unfortunately will limit his visitors due to how contagious it is.

Yesterday Timmy had the breathing tube removed from his mouth (AMEN!!!!) and he also received a tracheotomy (this is temporary and is still helping him breath). This made him extremely happy as he can now lick his lips and try to communicate a bit better with family - although he is still unable to talk (due to the tracheotomy) he is making great progress now that the tube is not down his throat!

On Wednesday night towards the end of our prayer vigil we held, we got word that Timmy moved a toe (PRAISE GOD!!). These small miracles are truly incredible. Although he still does not have feeling yet in his legs or left arm we are still counting our blessings and we believe that God will continue to work miracles in his body.

Last but not least Timmy's lungs are starting to heal! He was able to be off of the ventilator for 2 hours today and he handled it quite well. This is a huge answer to prayer and we are so thankful that we have all of you to count on for your love, support and prayers.

Thank you to EVERYONE for every thought, prayer and love you are sending Timmy's way. Our family can feel the love and we are eternally grateful. Please continue to pray for him, he is not out of the woods yet, but we recognize and thank God for every small miracle in Timmy's recovery.

Timmy is in need of serious prayers at this time. Please join his friends and family at Burien First Assembly of God on Wednesday December 27th from 7pm-8pm for a prayer vigil.

"For where two or three gather in my name, I am there among them" Matthew 18:20

This is an informal gathering and we will be writing notes of encouragement as well as collecting Angel ornaments for him.

Please grab your family and be with us to pray for him together.

First, our family would like to say THANK YOU ALL so much. The outpouring of love, support, prayers and donations is more than we could have ever imagined.

Timmy is still in critical condition. He has developed pneumonia and his long term prognosis is still not determined. He has made some small progress which we are very thankful for and the small victories continue to give us hope.

Please continue to pray and send positive thoughts to our family during this difficult time. Thank you again!
