On July 24, 2011, near Hilo, Hawaii, our son Brad was severely injured in a head-on collision caused by a negligent driver crossing the median. Brad sustained multiple injuries, including C4-C6 vertebrae fractures, resulting in quadriplegia. He has no movement in his hands or legs, and no sensation below mid-chest. His mobility is limited to a motorized wheelchair.
Brad spent 23 days in intensive care at Queens Hospital and four weeks at the Rehabilitation Hospital of the Pacific, both in Honolulu. He was subsequently healthy enough to endure a ten hour flight and was transferred to Magee Rehabilitation Hospital in Philadelphia where he was a patient for nine weeks. Since leaving the hospital in November of 2011, shortly after his 21st birthday, he has been living with us in Royersford, Pa.

Brad, I have never met you, but I see a winning, strong spirit in your face. We are all praying for you. Your Mom & Dad have wonderful expectations and I do believe they will come to fruition. You are, and will be even more so, outstanding in the music & art world. I pray that God blesses you and your family with continued strength.
