Story

Chris Evans - Volume 2 - Tetraplegic

On the 2nd July 2017 our Dad Chris Evans went mounting biking with ‘the lads’ like he does every Sunday and unfortunately came over the handle bars off his bike and suffered severe damage to his spinal cord. After just over a week in ICU and the possibility of nearly losing him his strength pulled him through and he began ‘Volume 2’. He is now in Sheffield Northern Specialist Spinal Facility and his journey has not been easy to say the least. Unfortunately he is now a tetraplegic which means there will no longer be movement from his neck down and he will have to remain on a ventilator due to damage to his left lung but this won’t hold him back on his mission to get back to his wife of 25 years, out with his best friend our Doberman Diesel and eventually out with the lads when he returns home sometime this year.

Our Dad has always been generous with his time in helping others which means we have many people who care enough to take part in the below challenges and fun days to raise a target of £50,000 to get our dad a made to measure off-road wheel chair and other aids to gain his independence.

We would be eternally grateful if you would like to donate and help our dad begin Volume 2 of his life. We’ll post regular updates on his rehabilitation whilst we’re training (attempting) for our triathlon.

    HI AMAZING PEOPLE! So we've hit 50% and higher... to cut it short we just can't thank you all enough for your donations and support, it is so incredible!!! Some amazing people want to get involved so we're adding a few more events to the list! We're getting the wheel chair specialists in soon for a demonstration and to get Dad measured up! In the meantime he has been whizzing round his room in his hospital provided standard chin controlled chair... not smug at all as you can imagine! From Rachel & Katie XXX

Hi, Rachel and Katie Evans here. We could go on for ages as to how incredible our Dad is, he's basically a superhero but hopefully with the events coming up and the support we hope to receive on this page should show you how incredible others think he is!
