Cyclist Ryan Brown severely injured in recent collision

This is an update to this post. Alexandria, Virginia resident, MacArthur parent, and cyclist Ryan Brown was severely injured in a crash on Thursday, May 5th. A YouCaring page has been setup to help the family with medical expenses during Ryan’s recovery.

This week, the friends of Ryan Brown who set up the YouCaring page issued this latest update on Ryan’s recovery.

Ryan has been breathing on his own (through a tracheostomy tube) for almost 48 hours so he’s getting his ticket out of the ICU!  Yeah!  He’ll be one floor down till it’s time for rehab.  His wife says waking up from a coma is definitely not like it’s shown in the movies and there are still many steps to go but this is serious progress!!

If you can, please consider donating to an injured fellow Alexandrian. I did, and I hope you will too.
