Welcome to Ben's CaringBridge website. We've created it to keep friends and family updated about Ben. Get started by reading the introduction, My Story.
Check back for the latest journal entries with updates, visit the photo gallery, and write Ben a note in the guestbook.
Around 2 a.m. on Friday, April 15 Ben was hit by a car as he was walking on the sidewalk back to a friend's house. Two other girls were also struck by the vehicle, and fortunately they are ok.
Unfortunately, Ben is currently in critical condition at HCMC. He has significant damage to his brain. He also has multiple fractures throughout his body.
As of right now, Ben's outcome is unsure. We are hopeful that the next few days will reveal how severe the damage really is.
Ben needs everyone's thoughts and prayers during this time. We'll continue to update the Journal with new information and Ben's status. Everyone is welcome to come visit Ben at the hospital as well--he's located in the SICU, Red building, Floor 7, Room 373.
