Help a snowboarder in need
09 May, 2009
Each day pro snowboarders put their lives and bodies on the line especially at competitions. Superpark just went down in Mammoth and unfortunately injuries also occurred. Cody is in need of help after his serious injury at Superpark.
Cody Rosenthal recently broke his L3 vertebrae on day two of Super Park 09. He was flown out of Mammoth Lakes Hospital to Renown Hospital in Reno and is currently in ICU. His surgery takes place May 10, 2009.
Like most talented snowboarders in this industry, Cody does not have Health Insurance. Any donations anyone can give are deeply appreciated. Check out his facebook support page to find out more infoand you can donate directly to paypal here.
Update from Facebook: “If every member of this group donated even just a dollar it would help him out a million! thank you for all your support and prays, he appreciates ever bit of it!”
Cody’s surgery went very very well!!!! He has two metal rods on each side connecting to his L2 and L4 to support and take the pressure off the broken L3 vertebra. It just time for him to heal and keep giving him positive vibes and motivation! thanks again for all the support you all have given him. Also thank you for all the donations so far!
