Hi friends. As some of you may know, Sean Wurtzel suffered a brain aneurysm on Tuesday, July 10th during a workout class in Washington, DC. His girlfriend Sam was with him at the time of the fall, which occurred only 30 seconds into the class. An ambulance transferred them to George Washington (GW) Hospital ER, where Sean was moved to the ICU almost immediately due to the severity of his injuries.

On the morning of Wednesday, July 11th, doctors were able to locate the aneurysm through an angiogram, and successfully performed surgery to block the aneurysm and began reducing the pressure around his brain shortly thereafter.

Currently, Sean is stable, but heavily sedated and still intubated due to the bleeding around his brain. He is in excellent hands with the neurosurgery team at GW, and they continue to monitor him very closely to minimize the pressure around the brain and to keep other vitals on track.

Sean is a strong, healthy, and young fighter. He and his family will continue to take this battle day by day, but please know that your prayers and positive thoughts are moving him in the right direction. We will be providing frequent updates through CaringBridge so that we will all be able to track Sean’s success.

Many of you are asking if there are other ways to help. During this time, we are focused on keeping his family from Louisiana here in Washington, DC so that they can be close to Sean during this difficult time. At this time, any kind of financial support will go towards Sean's medical expenses as well as his family's travel, food, and living expenses in DC. Thank you in advance for your love and generosity.
