33511404_1538758048779777_r.jpegAs many of you know, Kevin Conwell, Bozeman High School's Principal experienced a recurrence of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2017, requiring a stem cell transplant at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. In his traditional spirit, Kevin focused on recovery and returned to campus earlier than doctors expected - resuming his duties with unwavering commitment and school spirit. If you have kids at Bozeman High School this fall semester, you have undoubtedly already seen Kevin in the halls and around the administration offices, back to work and back to his usual self.

During the last week of September, Kevin was battling what appeared to be a common cold. It quickly progressed and moved to his spinal cord by the evening of Friday, September 28th. The virus caused inflammation, rendering him paralyzed with a condition called Transverse Myelitis. At this point in his treatment, Kevin needs respiratory support and has extremely restricted mobility.

 While he has received excellent, stabilizing care at Bozeman Health Deaconess, Kevin’s best opportunity for recovery requires transfer to a larger, out-of-state medical facility with a specialty in spinal cord injury rehabilitation. The Life Flight transfer and the temporary relocation for the family outside of Bozeman involves many expenses that are not covered by insurance. We are asking you to wrap your arms around Kevin and the entire Conwell family as they are faced with this enormous, but necessary, financial burden to provide Kevin with the best care and the best foreseeable outcome.

 While Kevin’s precise prognosis is uncertain at this time, we remain hopeful that he will eventually recover. Kevin's wife, Barb, three daughters - Laura, Jennifer, and Mary - and his grandchildren, Bridger and Emmie, are so grateful for the community's incredible support and are thankful for your thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time. We will keep you updated as we move forward and would like to thank you for your continued prayers and support!

Kevin has made a tremendous impact on the lives of our children and in the larger community. Let’s help Kevin get the best care possible to speed his road to recovery.

Donations of any amount are much appreciated and will be used to provide Life Flight transportation and care during his out-of-state treatment. We will continue to provide updates on Kevin’s progress.

Hello, we want to thank you all for your support and love for Kevin and our family. Kevin is in the Neuro Critical Care Center (NCCU) at the University of Utah Hospital. He arrived late on Monday, October 8th and has been receiving great care here. We still do not what has caused his illness, but they are working very hard to figure it out. He has a team of Neurologist, Autoimmune Neurologist and amazing nurses that are working endless hours to figure this out. We will do our best to keep you all up to date as we find out information and again want to thank you for your love and support. The Conwell family

Hi All,

Thank you so much for your generous donations! Your support and good thoughts are greatly appreciated by the Conwell family.

Today (October 7th), Kevin was flown to University of Utah Hospital to receive more specialized treatment for his condition. We ask that you continue to share this campaign to help us reach our goal as so many of these specialty healthcare services will not be covered by insurance, nor will the Conwell's temporary residency in Utah.

Thank you, thank you. We will continue to keep you posted as we learn more.
