Brian's Recovery Fund

$15,677 of $75,000 goal

Raised by 156 people in 27 months
On April 16th a fire occured at our home and while everyone is out of eminent danger, Brian is suffering from severe burns on his upper body. 

Currently, Brian is located at Loyola Hospital in one of the best burn unit centers in the world. While we are extremely grateful and blessed with the overwhelming amount of care and generosity thus far, we know that this is only the first step in a long road to recovery. While we don't know exactly the length and specifics of his recovery, we do know he will need multiple surgeries, an extended hospital stay, and continuous rehabilitation. In this time of recovery we want to provide the best support system for Brian--while things and items can be replaced, people cannot, and so our focus from here is to direct intentions towards his healing and wellness. 

Any contributions will give Brian a better safety net to move through this difficult process. We want to thank everyone for keeping Brian in their prayers and couldn't be more appreciative of the kind gestures thus far.

Hi guys! Just wanted to thank everyone one last time before i close this at the end of the month. We are so blessed to have had (and still have) the support from all of you. As most of you already know, we have finally moved back into our house and are slowly getting things back to normal! Brian is home and is in the process of figuring out what his next steps are. This money has been a HUGE help and we cant thank you enough for donating. We want to start a 5K fundraiser for fire prevention with all proceeds going to Loyola Hospitals burn unit so please keep an eye out for that if its something you would be interested in! Thank you again!

A HUGE thank you to everyone who came out and supported and/or helped make the fundraiser the success that it was. My family is beyond thankful for each and every one of you and I know my brother will want to thank you all individually when he is well and able too! We appreciate everything and will keep you posted throughout his recovery process!

Recent updates: Brian has been moved to the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab (formally known as RIC) in Chicago! He has started his intense therapy and has been doing great. He gets daily schedules so anyone who wants to visit can let me know and we can see if we can plan a time and date! He should be there for 2-3 weeks and then will start out patient therapy. Thank you again for all of the support and donations! We are so grateful and blessed to have all of you in our lives.

Remeber the fundraiser this upcoming Saturday at Stimacs Restaurant and Bar! :)

There will be music, food, drinks, and raffles to allow us to thank those that have donated as well as give those who still want too an opportunity to do so! Please feel free to contact me for any information, Brian is not aware of the fundraiser and we want to keep it a secret for now!

We hope to see you all there!
