Sam Bachman's Medical Bills

$1,880 of $10,000 goal

Created May 3, 2019
Sam Bachman was involved in a serious car accident Sunday, April 28 that has left him in the ICU with numerous injuries - not only a traumatic brain injury, but a broken orbital bone, fractured vertebrae, both collapsed lungs, a broken collarbone, four broken ribs, missing teeth and a variety of other issues that he's fighting hard to overcome - along with having his spleen removed during surgery after the accident.

Sam is currently heavily sedated in the ICU with all sorts of tubes connected to him, but has opened his eyes several times, will squeeze hands and has feeling in all of his extremities. Visiting is limited, but his mom and dad, family and friends have all been at the hospital showing their love and support since he was admitted.

It's going to be a long road to recovery, but we've already seen positive signs from Sam this early in the process and know he's going to continue to fight to get back to 100% (hopefully not "literally" fight, for the nurse's sake, as he did on Wednesday night when he somehow ripped his breathing tube out).

Sam's family and friends are all extremely grateful for the outpouring love, support and prayers that have already come through, but we're also trying to do our best to help Sam return to normalcy as soon as possible during his recovery - which right now means we're trying to make sure he doesn't fall too far behind on his personal bills as well as preparing for all of the current and future medical bills that are unfortunately in his future.

Hi everyone! just wanted to give an update on Sam as we have gotten so many gracious donations and questions about how he is. Sam was moved to the rehab facility at Renown and while seems to be improving in so many ways and looks better on the outside, he is still traumatically injured. Unfortunately, we do not have the resources to bring Sam home to his own bed as of yet and under a doctor’s supervision is truly the best place for him.

Due to the nature of his injury, it was recommended that he be moved to a group home in Las Vegas that specializes in handling brain injuries where he will live with other people going through something similar to him. Unfortunately, it is very hit or miss whether or not insurance will approve this move so we are crossing all our fingers and toes! We are so optimistic as he has already surpassed so many expectations, but we truly have no idea how long it will be until we have our Sam back. Thank you so much to everyone who has come along with us on this journey so far

Just a quick update for everyone who has so graciously contributed.

Today all of Sam’s tubes were removed, aside from his IV. Truly a spectacular day and one it was hard to believe would come after seeing him last Sunday. He is also up and walking with very little assistance and able to speak. Within the next few days he should be transferred to a normal room in the hospital, and soon after transferred to a rehabilitation center for victims of neurological trauma where he will live for an unknown amount of time. Unfortunately, we will not know the true outcome of his brain injury for quite a while.

Thank you so much to everyone who has been there for our family thus far. We have such a long road ahead of us but the support of you all is so overwhelming and beyond anything we could’ve ever imagined!
