The last few months have been pretty busy. I went to Switzerland a few times for some intense rehab, then went to another rehab center in Barcelona, Spain, for another couple of weeks, to try different techniques. I spent time with my family during each rehab trip. It feels good to have them around me. COVID isn’t making things easy, but I didn’t let it get in my way to do a lot of rehab.
Road 2 Recovery has done an incredible job, thanks to some amazing people donating funds. I would not have been able to do as much rehab work without your financial support.
I’m very thankful for everyone who has supported me from different places around the world. That helps me so much when I’m hitting some “downs”.
I would be lying if I said things were easy. The roller coaster of emotions is sometimes hard, but I am not giving up, and I will do whatever I can to gain anything back possible.
As of right now, I’ve gained all my arms back, and my upper body is actually stronger than before! I got some feeling back in my legs, and I’m still working on getting movement.
I AM NOT GIVING UP!
UPDATE 03/03/20 via Brain’s Instagram account.
I know I have been quiet the last two weeks but these two weeks have been the toughest of my life. After spending a week in ICU- which I barely remember- and a few days on a regular floor in Tampa, I’m now back in France to start a long rehab process.
I don’t know yet what my future will be but I’m so ready to get to work.
I’ve been able to see so many messages and support you have given me and trust me it feels so good. Thank you to @troyleedesigns team and my team manager for staying by my side and everybody at KTM for their support. Thank you @road2recovery for your amazing help 🙏🏻 — Bonjour à tous,
Je suis resté silencieux les deux dernières semaines depuis ma chute mais ces deux dernières semaines ont été les plus durs de ma vie. Après avoir passé une semaine en soin intensif que je me souviens à peine, puis quelques jours dans un service régulier de l hôpital de Tampa, je suis maintenant de retour en France pour attaquer une très longue rééducation.
Je ne sais pas encore à quoi ressemblera mon futur mais je suis prêt à travailler dur.
J’ai vu beaucoup de vos messages de soutient et croyez moi, ça fait vraiment du bien.
Je veux remercier mon team TLD et particulièrement mon team manager TK pour être resté à mon chevet pendant plusieurs jours, et toute l’équipe KTM pour son soutient. Un grand merci à Road to Recovery pour leur aide inestimable.
J’aimerais tellement remercier @cmmathilde et @marvinmusquin25 pour tout ce qu’ils ont fait pour moi depuis des mois et depuis ma blessure. Des gens formidables avec un cœur énorme.❤️🙏
Brian Moreau suffered a major crash on Saturday, February 15 during the Free Practice session at Round 7 of the AMA Supercross Championship in Tampa, Florida.
The Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team athlete underwent surgery on Saturday, February, 15th to repair a fractured vertebra in his neck and he is in stable condition as he awaits further information from doctors in Tampa. Due to his extended stay in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), Brian’s medical bills are expected to be substantial even after his insurance is applied; therefore, the Road to Recovery Foundation has opened a fundraising campaign to assist with Brian’s medical bills. As always, R2R is a nonprofit 501(c) (3) and your donation toward Brian’s fund is tax-deductible. If you are able, please donate to Brian’s page here.
As more information on Brian’s recovery becomes available, we will update his R2R page here. We encourage folks to leave positive messages of support on Brian’s R2R page for him to read. Brian and his family thank you for your generosity and support during this difficult time.
