Wayne Crill's friends and family are raising money to help support his recovery. Please help with your support!

On August 9, Wayne had a serious climbing accident in Eldorado Canyon. He suffered significant injuries to his head and lungs, along with many broken bones. An incredibly experienced climber, his equipment malfunctioned in an almost impossible way. He was incredibly fortunate to have survived the accident, in large part due to the fact that he was wearing a helmet. He was rescued, flown to the hospital in Denver, and underwent immediate surgery to relieve the pressure in his brain. He remains unconscious in the ICU, where he is showing positive signs including movement in his hands and legs. We are very hopeful and really appreciate all the love, prayers and positive healing energy that have been flowing his way.

When our friends and family asked us how they could help, we decided to set up this page in order to facilitate donations. There are still a lot of unknowns in terms of Wayne's recovery, but there are many logistics that need to be handled immediately, as he and his family were about to move out of the country for Wayne's new job at Ross University. Your support will help with Wayne's medical expenses (to supplement his health insurance) and related living expenses for him and his family. We will continue to update this page as we get more information about Wayne's condition and the family's specific financial needs.

We are so grateful for your support, whether financial or spiritual. Wayne is an amazing individual and those who know him know that he can pull through this!

Please see the forum for additional details and offer messages of support.
