Please help our friend Ethan…
As one journey ends, another begins…. It was a warm day in June 2014, when a quick dip into an old swimming hole altered the direction of Ethan’s life forever.

fact: I always give too much information. When people ask, how’s it going? I will spare you the details of the difficulties we face daily on this road, however we are making compromises to prioritize Ethan’s physical recovery, so the question is, well do you think it’s worth it? I will never respond with a NO. What I will tell you is this, there are a lot of compromises we are making, but at the end of the day I will always be grateful that we’ve taken advantage of this opportunity to push for a year of physical recovery for Ethan, and I will always push for more healthcare for Ethan. My daily frustrations involve the health implications that we haven’t had the resources to address. For example while we put all our resources into physical recovery he suffers with other systems failing which interfere with pretty big ADL’s or (activities of daily living). There are so many hoops to jump through to get access to healthcare post SCI. And there are so many suffering with SCI for whom recovery it is not an option at all. Prayers that we will become more whole and equal as a nation and opportunities to heal and reduce suffering will become within reach of us all.

We had a great time at our event, Move Through It, last Friday June 17th. The evening marked the 2nd anniversary of Ethan’s spinal cord injury and we couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend it and celebrate all of our accomishments and spirit, amongst friends celebrating strength, patience, and perseverance in the midst of challenge. Together we raised enough money for Ethan to access 35 more hours of intense therapy. We’re both super thankful for everyone that showed their support either at the party or through donations of refreshments, raffle items, and their time and energy helping to put all the pieces together.

Unfortunately, awful things happen to good people for no good reason. You are fortunate that you have such a great, supportive family surrounding you. As far as I can see and read on IG and FB, you are doing all the things to recover the things that you've lost. It is a hard road but you're a very tough guy. LLAP Ethan!
