No Coincidences at Craig


No coincidences were in abundance today when I joined Les Borsheim at Craig Hospital as we visited two tremendous young men. Les, a bruising winger with the Colorado Eagles, was paralyzed in 2008 and spent three months at Craig himself. Today Les took on the role of counselor and friend as he shared his experiences with Ethan and Ashton as they both adjust to a new and unfamiliar life.
Ethan Glynn is only 15 and just three months ago suffered a devastating injury in his first ever high school football game that has left him without feeling from the shoulders down. He lives in Bloomington, Minnesota and has been at Craig since September. With the help of many, Dawg Nation will be hosting a pond hockey tournament in February at Prior Lake, MN to help offset some of the mounting expenses.
Ashton Stephenson is only 19 and less than two months ago was involved in a car accident that left him with several serious injuries including paralysis from the chest down. We are currently in the midst of raising funds for this great kid and we talked about getting to an Avs game and even sharing the ice in sleds.
It was an awesome visit, but also an overwhelming one as I was surrounded by so much hope, determination, strength and love. As I drove home the tears came, but also the powerful feeling of gratefulness for being afforded these special opportunities to witness the very best of humanity.
My heart goes out to these families, but at the same time my gratitude goes out to all of you that continue to support our noble cause. Thank you all! ❤️
