Denny and his road to recovery
Organized by: Kelli Clancy
On March 13, 2016, Denny Clancy, 24, was a passenger in terrible car accident resulting in a cervical spinal cord injury leaving him paralyzed - the most serious of these injuries. denny knows he has a long road ahead. Denny continues to fight and we have high hopes for his recovery however, an enormous amount of care will be needed. His family must make home modifications that will range anywhere from $5,000 - $15,000 depending on his specific needs. In the first year alone, we expect physical rehabilitation therapy to cost Denny $21,000 – $38,000, and expect medical supplies to cost up to $3,500. The National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center (NSCISC) shows the estimated lifetime costs due to spinal cord injury can range from $1.5 million to over $4.5 million for a 25 year old with an injury like Denny's. Despite how overwhelming this all is, Denny still has a smile ear to ear to when he sees visitors and maintains a very positive attitude. He has remained steadfast, determined and most importantly, strong through all of this; frankly, he is inspiring. While he is clearly the strongest of us all, we want to make sure he knows his family and friends are here to carry him through this, which is why we are reaching out for support now .
