Family and friends of Travis Amick are raising money to pay for uninsured medical expenses associated with catastrophic injury.
Travis has chosen to fundraise with HelpHOPELive (formerly NTAF) in part because HelpHOPELive provides both tax-deductibility and fiscal accountability to contributors. Contributors can be sure that funds contributed will be used only to pay or reimburse medically-related expenses. For more information, please contact HelpHOPELive at 800-642-8399.
Thanks for your support!

Aunt Eily here….Sorry to have been so lax about posting…life does get busy….I will try to do better.
Travman is making some great progress. He’s been home in Lodi with Mom & Dad since November. Thanks to everyone who helped modify the home to make it easier and safer for Travis! And to the Angels who provided the van! And to all who attended and supported the fundraiser at the fairgrounds! Your generosity is so appreciated, there is really no way to fully express our gratitude.
Trav is currently going down to Sci-Fit in Pleasanton a couple of times a week for intensive exercise/therapy. Expensive, but from all accounts one of the best things in the area he can do to help his recovery. Would certainly help if gas wasn’t so expensive…..
I’ll try to get some more pics posted soon…God Bless

Posted by Mom Debbie today on FB:”Expected today…..Travis will be off the ventilator for 24 hours…hopefully done for good! Plan is to move him today to the first floor Rehab center and start the REALLY heavy rehab and OT. PRAY PRAY PRAY that some mobility will gradually return. He will work hard….Travis has an unbelievable work ethic….he is excited to be able to work work work. He still needs the positive thoughts and prayers…..and visitors!!!!! Much more open visiting hours, best in afternoon and evening!! His time in his wheelchair will increase as his wound heals….plan is 2 hours this morning and 2 hours in afternoon/evening. He will be home before we know it….if things continue to progress as the Drs say they have….maybe within 3-5 weeks. So…..back to work today I go…..Phil Monday. In the meantime, changes will have to be made to get ready for his arrival….here we go!!”
From me (Aunt Eily): I am so proud of my nephew Travis! Jessica and I were able to spend some time up in the area with him last week, before Deb & Phil got back. He is working so hard and keeping such an upbeat attitude! The staff in the Trauma Rehab there at Santa Clara is great – I was really impressed all around! No doubt in my mind that he is now at the right place!
Many thanks to everyone who keeps coming to visit and otherwise support him! Check out Travis’ new website, www.Travman6.com! Also, check out all the photos I just uploaded here!

Travis! I am so happy to say we knew each other. You always brought your smile where ever you went and it was contagious to those around you. I have few memories from Freshman year at SM but I do remember you taking me to formal and dancing your butt off with me (unlike the other guys who just sat on the bleachers). You will always have my heart travis and I look forward in visiting you soon. xoxoxo
