My Story

 On March 30, 2013 - Chase suffered an anoxic brain injury caused by a near drowning accident in a pool while on vacation .He was without oxygen,  non-responsive and no heartbeat for several minutes.  It is a Miracle that he is here with us today. Thanks to some truly selfless, quick reactions from strangers poolside, a vast number of incredible medical professionals, and the Lords hands -he has been given a second chance at life. 

 We spent 11days at Arnold Palmer Children’s in Florida,  - once stabilized, we cameback to MN- where we stayed at Gillette's Children's Hospital in St.Paul.  Here he spent 3 months working vigorously in therapy, and improving his health.  Overcoming almost impossible odds, he was given the clearance to head home and continue his recovery in the company of his siblings - (Ava 8yrs old, Tanner 10yrs old) and his puppy Carly. He no doubt has a long and difficult recovery process ahead of him, which we are extremely grateful to have the opportunity to guide him through.  Chaser is a strong willed little 5 year old who has what it takes to get there!  We would like to thank all of you for your prayers and support, and look forward to updating you along his journey to a complete recovery!  God is Good!
