THE STORY:

UPDATE: THANK YOU FOR HELPING US EXCEED OUR INITIAL GOAL!!!

Hi everyone, your support has been incredible, and reaching this goal means taking care of Shawn's immediate needs. Words cannot express how truly touched we are by this beautiful outpouring of generosity from friends and family!

We're going to keep the page open to help support Shawn's care as he heals from the accident and surgery, and moves into the challenging physical therapy stage of recovery. 

We are asking for your continued help to offset Shawn's upcoming current and unforeseen expenses:

Physical and occupational therapy
Specialists
Medical equipment 
Car modifications
Co-pays for rehab and medication

With your amazing support we are helping to lessen the financial burden so that Shawn can focus on his health and rehabilitation. We pledge that any money we do not spend on Shawn's care will be donated to spinal cord injury research and the rehabilitation non-profits that are helping him through his injury.

This has been one big hug and boost for everyone at Team Shawn! Thank you all for continuing to spread the word and donate!!

Much love,

Shawn, Mary and The Maloney Family

 

In April 2015, Shawn had a climbing accident and fractured two vertebrae in his back, T12 and L1, which compromised his spinal cord. Shawn was flown to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital at the time of the accident where his fantastic neurosurgeon was able to relieve the pressure on his spinal cord and stabilize his spinal column with two metal rods. Although the pressure was relieved, the initial trauma caused loss of movement from the waist down.

After surgery, Shawn was moved to the Kaiser Foundation Rehabilitation Center in Vallejo, CA. Since his arrival in rehab, he has been fortunate to work with an amazing staff of doctors, nurses, and therapists that specialize in spinal cord injury (SCI). Presently, Shawn has close to full sensation in his legs, toes and hips, but still lacks significant motor function below the waist. The current plan is for Shawn to remain in rehab for a few more weeks and then return home for outpatient rehab.

Although he will come home in a wheelchair, Shawn’s doctors and rehab therapists are all hopeful he will walk again someday! It will be a long road to recovery but Shawn is strong and so determined. He has even been taking steps in rehab with the assistance of his PT therapists! With this amazing development, we would also like to look into getting custom leg braces made for Shawn so that he can practice walking safely when he gets home.

Luckily, the inside of our apartment is one level and meets all of the standards for wheelchair accessibility (with some modifications to the bathroom), but we are looking into options for ways to get his wheelchair up the stairs into the apartment.


This is the part where we need your help! We would love to give Shawn a platform lift into his home, a high-mobility wheelchair, a more accessible bathroom, as well as some help to cover the medical costs not covered by insurance. Any donations would be so greatly appreciated!

We cannot express how grateful we are for everyone's positive thoughts, love, support and continued prayers as Shawn continues to heal and make progress on his road to recovery!

Thank you and much love,

Mary
