Dear Family and Friends, Th…
Dear Family and Friends,

Thank you for giving to the Mobility for Shawn Maloney fund. It has made a profound and lasting impact on my life, and the lives of those I love.

In April, I had an accident, but it turns out that I had a whole community behind me. Over 600 people donated to this fund, and many more sent their love, prayers, and chocolate to our little room in rehab. Family spent nights in the hospital, friends flew across the country, and perfect strangers gave generously, all so that I could walk again.

Since leaving in-patient care on May 18th, I’ve made incredible progress in my recovery. Along the way I’ve relied heavily on new equipment, supplies, and therapy sessions, all paid for by the mobility fund. Having such support has allowed me to focus 100% of my energy on recovery, and today, I am taking steps thanks to all of you. I figured what better way to show my appreciation than to show you some progress. So I’ve written a blog post recapping my first three months of recovery (with videos!) here:

Through all of this, my girlfriend Mary has been the glue holding everything together. She brightened my spirits and made me believe that anything was possible. She spent every night in the hospital and handled all of the details necessary for me to return home. She encouraged me to keep drawing, to keep laughing, and to never lose sight of myself despite the injury. Most of all, she eliminated fear and gave me hope for a happy future together, no matter what happened. Spinal cord injuries always affect more than just one person. Thankfully, our classmates, teammates, neighbors and co-workers have all been there to help us both.

Over the past three months I’ve seen a lot of good in the world. Mary and I have hugged nurses, befriended therapists, and even celebrated her birthday (Star Wars themed, of course) with friends in rehab. My mom made meatballs for an entire hospital wing, and my dad laced up three pairs of sneakers before I could even stand. Brothers and sisters joked about the infamous “turtle shell” back-brace, and friends rushed to sit with me and play board games. I was on a first-name basis with the mailroom, and it felt good to know that an entire town was rooting for me.

Mary and I have no doubt that this amazing outpouring of love has contributed greatly to our success so far. Thank you again for sending positive thoughts our way as we continue to press onward.

Dearest loved ones, friends,…
Dearest loved ones, friends, friends-of-friends, and fantastic acquaintances,

It is our goal to send each and every one of you a personal thank you, but with currently over 500 donations and almost $90,000 raised for the Mobility for Shawn Maloney fundraiser in just one week, we cannot help but reach out now to say WOW! We are so humbled, amazed, and so SO thankful for your generosity!

G.T. Smith once said, “Donors don’t give to institutions, they invest in ideas and people in whom they believe.” Your donations, kind words of encouragement, prayers, and good thoughts have shown Shawn, myself, and our families how much you believe in Shawn’s recovery. Your belief in us has not only strengthened our determination to overcome any of the challenges ahead, but your fundraising will help us obtain the necessary tools Shawn needs to live a full, happy and mobile life!

We are so in awe of all of you! Please know that you have made a difference in our lives, and we are forever grateful.

Generosity is contagious,

Shawn, Mary & the Maloney Family
