On September 16th, Evan was in a boating accident and broke his c5-c6 vertabraes in his neck which has left him paralyzed from the chest down, categorizing him as a quadriplegic.

He underwent immediate spinal surgery at Broward General and remained in their ICU for the next 65 days dealing with multiple heart and lung complications from the accident. Last Tuesday he was airlifted to the Shepherd Center in Atlanta to start the rehab process. Unfortunately, he has had some more setbacks due to his lungs and remains in the ICU up there after undergoing 2 more emergency surgeries this past week. He is an unbelievably inspiring fighter with the most amazing family and friends who have been there with him throughout this whole process, and we know that he will continue to amaze us with his bravery and strength everyday.
