Steve’s Recovery Road

Welcome to Steve’s Recovery Road, a website dedicated to collecting contributions for Steve Pattelena & Family following the near fatal automobile accident that took place on April 19, 2012.  This site contains a description of the accident, Steve’s fight for life in the ICU/CCU, six months of medical and physical rehabilitation, and the adjustments he has made since he returned home.  In addition, it is a tribute to the many family members, friends, and colleagues from around the world that have supported our family over the past year since the accident.  As you can imagine, the medical expenses and needs associated with Steve’s catastrophic spinal cord injury have taken a significant financial toll on the family.   We’re glad you’ve come to join our family in support of Steve, Myoko and their twins, Adeline & Cecilia.  All contributions to this site will be used to purchase much needed medical necessities, equipment and to support Steve’s family and children.  Your generosity is greatly appreciated!

Those are beautiful strong and hope filled words – How blessed you are to be able to feel them.  Our prayers remain with you as you start this new part of your journey – wherever it leads you.  There is a plan – the challenge now is to discover it.  Take good care – Blessings
