The nightmare began on Saturday morning, January 21, 2017; while at a combined school wrestling practice in Abu Dhabi, 9th grader Myles Molnar, suffered a catastrophic spinal injury. He dislocated his C5/C6 disk, resulting in a 50% compression of his spinal cord. The family was fortunate that the coaches and wrestling parents immediately recognized the seriousness of Myle’s injury and quickly secured him, preventing further damage and possibly saving his life. Myles is paralyzed from chest to toes; he has use of his arms but not his hands. He struggles to keep the fevers down and is determined to gain as much mobility as possible. He was air Medevac’d to Santa Clara Valley Medical Center and is now a hard working patient in the Spine Rehabilitation Center, after which he will reside in Pleasanton.

Myles’ family is devastated that their 15-year-old bright, smiling and happy boy is going through this traumatic injury. However, their son and brother is steadfastly determined in his recovery, and we are hopeful that our devoted and compassionate friend, accomplished student, wrestler, and violinist, will regain the use of his fingers and legs. And just like any other 9th grader, we all want Myles to realize his dreams of going to college and having a family of his own. To accomplish these goals, Myles will have a long journey of recovery ahead of him, during which many expenses will be incurred. We want Myles’ family to be able to give him all of the support he needs, without worry. To help with the additional bills, including caregivers, therapists, and travel, we have started this GoFundMe page.  We love Myles and his parents, Laura, Frank, and sister Anna, and hope his friends and neighbors will join us in support of them. Please donate what you can to help offset their costs. Thank you for your donation. Sincerely, Brenda, Jade, Lynne, and Paula. Go Myles!

Please post words of encouragement and warm thoughts on Myles's Facebook recovery page , when he is ready, he will respond.
