Please help Aaron Stahl recover from his sever traumatic brain injury.

On March 18, 2011 Aaron Stahl was in a near fatal car accident. He was wearing his seatbelt when he lost control of his car and hit a tree. He hit his head and suffered contusions on his lungs. Lucky for Aaron and his loved ones he was found quickly, emergency teams responded almost immediately and he was life-flighted to UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, Ca., where he was admitted into the Neurosurgery Intensive Care Unit (NSICU).
He has suffered a severe brain injury and the long term affects are not yet known. A severe brain injury produces physiologic, cognitive, emotional, psychological and behavioral changes. Often a severe brain injury involves multiple areas of the brain, resulting in multiple disabilities. Physical functions can be affected, such as standing, walking, and eye-hand coordination. Cognitive changes can include issues with memory and language. Personality traits can be affected. People may lose their natural inhibitions and behavior control, leading to inappropriate behavior. The effects of a brain injury can be extremely widespread, impacting all areas of a person's life and requiring extensive medical and rehabilitative treatment.
We feel that with aggressive treatment and continous support Aaron will make a full recovery. Once he is released from the hospital, Aaron will need daily physical therapy to relearn to walk, write, and other basic motor skills. He will also need to attend mental recovery programs, that will teach him what he has forgotten and help him to overcome his new disabilities.
Unfortunatly, Aaron is unable to pay for these treatments and he does not qualify for enough support to receive the attention he needs to make a full recovery. We are asking you to help Aaron raise enough money to complete his treatment. Thank You.

P.S. We know Aaron loves his friends and family immensely and would love to hear from you. Please send any cards or well wishes to: Aaron Stahl, P.O. Box 187, Thornton, CA 95686.

Your support, love and prayers have helped us through this rough time. Thank You.
~ The Stahl and Dossman Family ~
