Making Ethan a Miracle

$14,455 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 139 people in 11 months
While my nephew was mountain biking with a friend, he missed a small bridge over a creek and flipped over his handle bars landing head first. When his friend found him, he was having a seizure, bleeding out his mouth, and unconscious. Once first responders arrived, it was clear he would need to be life flighted to the children's hospital in Denver. Right now, he is in an intensive care unit with brain trauma. He has no insurance. These funds will go to his parents to help pay for his medical bills.  This is an urgent situation and a tremendous burden. #makingethanamiracle

Ethan is doing incredibly well! He was cleared to start running again, and we can barely believe the improvements that he’s made! Medical bills are still piling up, so we are super excited about this collaborative effort with FabnFree!!! http://www.fabnfree.com/vt/

Miracle update (by Valerie):
When Ethan and I left Denver children's hospital on August 18th the learning specialist gave me a copy of the accommodations that Ethan would need for school. There were 48 accommodations on the three page report for his 504 plan. A few being:
•A shortened school day
•Increasing hours present at school as tolerated
•Scheduled rest periods
•Hand off from parent to teacher
•Assistance of a responsible peer or adult in carrying materials
Once again Ethan has defied the odds. He was able to attend school all day everyday this week and never had an issue carrying his backpack. That is a miracle. Thank you for your continued prayers, they are working.
He can't wait to see the doctors in Denver on September 28th so that he can be cleared to bike his bike and run (even though I have let him run short distances when I am with him)

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! Due to your generours donations, we were able to help pay for the life flight. Unfortunately, the life flight was only the beginning!

Ethan started school this week. He can only go 3 times a week for two hours. These invisible injuries are definitely a growing process! We want to try for one last push of fundraising. #makeethanamiracle

He might look good physically, but he is now dealing with an invisible and intense injury! Brain trauma is NO fun!
