Scott Sheak Update 05/11/21

The past ten days since Scott Sheak’s crash and subsequent surgery have been extremely hard on Scott and his family. Last Monday, he was diagnosed with severe Pneumonia and staph infections which are both significant complications. Paired with the chest injuries he sustained and previous history with collapsing lungs, these are now a major concern for his recovery as they are not healing as quickly as they should. Multiple procedures, including a blood transfusion have been performed in the last week to help combat these progressing illnesses and completions with few positive results. 

Scott is 
suffering from aggressive coughing fits while currently intubated. Unfortunately, he is very uncomfortable and has been heavily sedated to help alleviate some of this pain. His doctors are trying to control his ever spiking fever and blood pressure but paired with everything else he is battling, this is a delicate process to navigate.
Goal one– to get rid of the Pneumonia so his breathing and blood pressure will remain consistent. Goal two– once he is stable, perform the tracheostomy surgery to be more comfortable, and less sedation will be needed.

Statement from Scott’s family- We would like to thank everyone for keeping Scott and our family in your thoughts and prayers. Your reaching out to each of us has helped more than we could ever express. We are honored to be a part of such a huge and supportive “family”. Please keep Scott and his recovery in your thoughts and prayers…

Retired professional motocross/supercross racer Scott Sheak suffered a substantial practice crash last Friday at Walden Motocross Track in New York while preparing for an upcoming Loretta Lynn’s Amateur Motocross Regional Championship. When Scott was approached, he was found unresponsive, not breathing, and without a pulse at the site of his crash. He was rushed to MidHudson Medical Center, where he was stabilized then transported via helicopter to Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla, New York, where he underwent surgery to stabilize the cervical spine in his neck.

 

After arrival at Westchester Medical Center, it was determined that Scott had sustained a collapsed lung and fractured cervical spine, as well as a severe concussion, damage to the spinal cord, and major soft tissue damage. On Saturday, May 1, Scott underwent surgery to stabilize the C7 vertebrae with rods and screws, and they decompressed the spinal cord. At this time, Scott has no movement or feeling in his extremities due to the excessive swelling and damage to his spinal cord. It is still too soon to know if the paralysis is permanent.

At this moment, Scott’s recovery process is unknown, but it is expected that he will have an extended stay in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and months of physical therapy. This is a fundraising campaine to support Scott as his medical bills are expected to be substantial. As always, R2R is a nonprofit 501(c) (3), and your donation toward Scott’s fund is tax-deductible.

 

As more information on Scott’s recovery becomes available, we will update his page here.  We encourage folks to leave positive messages of support on Scott’s R2R page for him to read.
