Unfortunately, theses types of things are happening far too often in the motocross community, but a longtime friend of mine was seriously injured riding his MX bike on June 3rd. His name is Bryan O’Neill and he crashed at a local Southern California MX Track and has badly broken his neck: Bryan has damaged his spine in the C2 through C7 vertebrae area from the accident and it is causing paral ysis from the shoulders down. Bryan has a my-space page so you can learn more about him (www.myspace.com/forbryan) but he is the husband of a wonderful wife, Amber, and is a new father to a young son, Ezra, who is now 18 months old; as you can imagine he is going to need everyone’s thoughts and prayers to pull through this difficult situation, and likewise, will need to take it day-by-day to get better. If so inclined, please think about any possible finical help you may be able to provide Bryan and his family as there is a link on his site where you can donate. He is in one of those circumstances that we’ve all have nightmares about.
Thank you for taking the time to check this out, and please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers. Bryan is now at a Long Beach
Rehabilitation Center and is in positive spirits but has a long road ahead of him.
