As many of you know, professional snowboarder Kevin Pearce was seriously injured during a half pipe training session on 12/31/2009. However the Pearce family shared good news with us today, nearly four full months later.
As reported on the families preferred outlet (The Well Wishes to our Friend Kevin Pearce Facebook Page) for Kevin, his family and his friends to post inspiration as well as Kevin’s progress, brought the world some great news today. As of April 14, 2010 Pearce was released from the inpatient Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Program at Craig Hospital. Kevin will continue daily outpatient therapy with Craig Hospital while residing in the Denver area (in a home that has been generously loaned to the Pearce family for the last several months.) Kevin’s outpatient treatment is expected to be the final step in Colorado before returning to his Norwich, VT home in the upcoming weeks, where he will continue to make strides towards a FULL RECOVERY!!!
It really shows that the prayers and inspiration everyone has been putting out there are really working for Kevin. With that, the Pearce family was sure to express their most sincere gratitude to Kevin’s rehabilitation team and for all of the continued support from all of you which they know is speeding up his progress.
Keep riding for Kevin as he continues to make drastic strides to a full recover. Keep it up Kevin!
