Noah Smith's Road To Recovery
Noah Smith's recovery is ongoing, and he's consistently improving.
On Wednesday, July 26th, 2017 Noah Smith, a 17-year-old Senior at Kennesaw Mountain High School, was at an area trampoline park with his friends. While enjoying the temporary freedom being airborne, he attempted a flip, and unfortunately, landed awkwardly on his head/neck.
Arriving at the hospital, Noah had no feeling below his mid chest, and had limited arm mobility. After the tests were completed, doctors stated that he broke three vertebrae in his neck. He was taken into surgery right away to piece his neck back together, using a post and about six screws and pins. The initial fear is that his spinal cord had been severed. In fact, we learned that his spinal cord was severely compressed, but in fact was not severed.
Embarking on the recovery ahead, we know that it will be a long road, but we continue to remain optimistic that Noah will regain his mobility again. Any donation or words of kindness are appreciated more than anyone realizes, thank you to everyone for your help and support thus far. The family and friends of Noah ask that you continue to keep him in your thoughts and prayers and that we all remain hopeful for a speedy recovery. With an accident like this, comes many medical bills and adaptations that need to be made to help accommodate Noah in his time of recovery. All donations will go directly to Noah's family to provide as much assistance as we can in their time of need.
