John Sanborn's Severe Brain Trauma

$51,444 of $90,000 goal

Raised by 767 people in 14 months
Created March 10, 2018

On Sunday, February 25th, my father had a bad fall from a ladder while doing yard work. While the rest of my family was getting ready for church, he was lucky enough to be found by someone driving through our neighborhood. He was rushed to the ER and has since been in the NSICU (Neuroscience Intensive Care Unit). My father has unfortunately suffered from a traumatic brain injury which put him in critical condition. Because he has been in a medically induced coma for the past two weeks, we do not know the extent of his brain injury. 

My father is the best man that we all know. From friends to family to co-workers, he is known as the most hardworking and honest man that cares so much about his family and others. He is the most loving person that always puts others before himself. He is very invested in his children's lives; from driving us to school every day, attending every single award ceremony/sporting event, or just being our #1 supporter, he always takes the time to be there for us. My father is also known for being the life of the party. Whether it is doing office pranks or singing his heart out to Prince, he knows how to make everyone laugh to make sure they're having a good time. He has never hesitated to take action to help anyone in need, whether he knows them or not. He is always a giver of his time and support. We all love him so much and know that he's fighting extremely hard.

Nothing could prepare us for such a tragic and devastating occurrence. Since he is the breadwinner of our family, we cannot make dues without his financial contribution. His outstanding medical bills will be impossible to cover with our current financial situation. We are also trying to keep up with our current bills as well as saving for his only son, Bradley, who will be attending UT Austin this fall. 

Thank you so much to everyone who has prayed and supported us through this difficult time. We appreciate all your love. 

Sincerely,
The Sanborn Family

Hi all! We wanted to give an update on John's recovery. He has overcome so much over the past ten months, he is the true definition of a miracle. John was in a coma for six weeks but was still working on overcoming other critical challenges (such as having a trach and being on dialysis). Despite the odds, he was able to get rid of the trach and dialysis. Since then, he has been participating in intense physical, occupational and speech therapy. Due to the extent of his injury, he is still working on relearning basic skills such as learning to eat and talk again. We are thrilled with the progress he is making, but we know he still has a long way to go. We have been battling insurance, but the costs continue to rise. In order for John to come home, he will need to continue INTENSE therapy.

Thank you all so much for all your prayers, love and support. John and our family could not get through this without each and every one of you. We would love for you all to considering sharing his GoFundMe, as he still has many goals to achieve.

Please watch this video of his progress! https://youtu.be/BfCRU5Dx8YI
