Welcome to our CaringBridge site. We've created it to keep friends and family updated.We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement during this time when it matters most.

Yesterday, on May 26th, 2016, Rob and Sherri's son Keanu was found out behind his house unconscious with multiple skull and facial injuries and fractures; which required immediate and extensive surgery.  A tree had fallen on him and thankfully Rob found Keanu as they were on their way out for a family dinner.

At this point, he is going in for further testing to see what steps will need to be taken from here. The doctors had to remove part of his skull to relief significant swelling.  The next 48 hours is critical in reducing the brain swelling and understanding more about the extensive injuries.  

We will be updating this site often!

Thank you for all thesupport.

Understandably, the Irvings have been completely immersed with Keanu's health.  Thankfully, all hopes and prayers have been answered thus far.  This is a strong little boy with a tremendous amount of love around him.  The overwhelming amount of support, prayers and positive energy has been appreciated beyond what we can describe on their behalf.

Many have asked how they can help or make financial contributions.  We have set up an account in Keanu’s name with North Shore Bank in Duluth for those who would like to contribute locally.
