Meet Braxten Nielsen
For those of you who know Braxten or who have spent any period of time with him, you know that he brightens up any room he enters and has a fierce love for life and everyone he meets. While Braxten was riding in a PRCA rodeo, his horse reared up and smashed him against the shoot, compressing and twisting his spinal cord, resulting in breaking his T-12 and L1 vertebrae. He was flown to the University of Utah Hospital where he immediately underwent a 5-hour extensive surgery. After, Braxten was told he is paralyzed from the waist down. Braxten spent 2 months in the hospital and is now undergoing intense therapy in an outpatient rehab facility. As you can imagine, the care he needs, and his hospital bills are terribly expensive, which is why we need your help.
