Update on David 💕
On Feb 12, 2018, David was T-boned on his way home for his lunch break. He was not wearing his seatbelt and the top of his Miata was down so he was ejected from... the car. He was found under his car with major head trauma and respiratory failure and rushed to the hospital.
He was essentially gone upon arrival and the surgeons debated between emergency brain surgery or letting him pass; luckily for David they chose to do the surgery.
On the 4th day, when he did not wake up after being removed from sedation and pain meds, they suspected the worst. An MRI showed that David suffered damage to his brain from a serious brain bleed, but also Diffuse Axonal Injury (DAI) which is microscopic damage to the neurons across the grey matter of his brain. They shared that 90% of people with his injury do not recover. They gave him a feeding tube and tracheotomy to keep him fed and breathing.
On the 8th day, much to everyone’s surprise, David woke up! His daily progress has been nothing short of a miracle.
On day 17 he transferred out of the hospital and into therapeutic rehab. His trach was removed and he was eating regular food by day 18.
On day 26 he walked out of the hospital and came home!
David’s journey is still long, but he has proven his strength and determination on a daily basis.
Never give up!

Another great in home visit for Ana here who is battling cancer at the moment. Pink Heals was kind enough to invite us along with Clovis PD to try and bring som...e sunshine to her day and of course wouldn’t you know it, the sun came out nice and strong! We want you to know Ana that we all stand by your side and fight with you as a community! Keep up the fight and thank you to Pink Heals for setting this up and showing our community how impactful your organization can be for everybody!
Update on David!
*DAVID UPDATE 2/24*
It’s been 12 days since David’s accident and this guy keeps beating the odds!
Today he graduated from Neuro Step Down (critical) to Neuro M...ed/Surg (noncritical). He is off oxygen as of today as long as he continues to tolerate room air. They are giving him a new trach to begin trach training and allow him a “voice” when he speaks. He has a couple days left of antibiotics for pneumonia but his cough is almost gone.
He is giving the nurses and staff a run for their money- he’s constantly working to get out of his restraints and managed to work one hand out to scratch the scar on his head and rest his hand behind his head... then eventually ripped out out his IV.
He’s requesting (demanding) things by name and saying some sentences- drink, water, coffee, massage, NOW, running, “5,4,3,2,1,0”, get me out, can I see him (Reed), can I have chapstick....
He also still has his potty mouth and had a few choice words for his sister when he was denied chapstick after the 4th request 😏.
The BEST news is he was accepted to transfer to Valley Children’s Acute Rehab Center since he is under 21yrs old. He is considered medically stable and they expect he will transfer Monday or Tuesday. He will receive intensive therapeutic services (PT/OT/Speech, etc) 6 days/week, 3 hours/day while he is inpatient for 24hr medical and personal care.
Thank you to Clovis Fire, Clovis PD and all of the PH volunteers for making today so special for Ana!
Another reason I love Fresno - Fresno County Pink Heals Chapter and Lisa Benham-Lewis. We spent part of our Saturday supporting Ana who is battling stage 3 breast cancer. Now she knows how much community support she has right there with her.
