Need Support for Jonny- In Coma Fighting for Life in Big Car Accident
Jonathan (“Jonny”) Grant was a passenger in a horrific car accident on March 17, 2017, in Raleigh, North Carolina. Jonny suffered a severe brain injury called diffuse axonal injury (DAI) forcing him into a coma. Each day brings excitement with every eye flutter, flinch of the shoulder, and pushing back when his wife Laura asks him to resist her physical therapy movements.
Petty Officer Grant earned his Navy SEAL trident in 2007 and served his country on three oversea deployments. At the time of the accident Jon was serving as a combat medic instructor at Fort Bragg.
Jon and his wife Laura need your financial support as Jon will once again need to employ the willpower and determination he used to earn his trident and serve his country. “The only easy day was yesterday” is the Navy SEAL motto and will be Jon’s as he works each and every day to gain back his strength and ability to perform the everyday tasks we all take for GRANTed.
Please consider donating to Jonny and his wife Laura as they begin this new journey together.
First I would like to say a HUGE thank you for all the love, support, donations and encouragement. Many have asked for updates on GoFundMe and I want to apologize for such a delay in doing that. To follow along with us on this journey you can follow me @laurabpilates on Instagram.
Here is a brief update:
Jon is fighting hard daily. There have been a few road bumps along the way, which is to be expected with Jon’s type of injury. Jon’s biggest obstacle is the cognitive piece of the injury. He has been classified with Aphasia. He mouths all the time. For a man of few words, he sure has a lot to say now. Occasionally, his mouthing turns into a light whisper that is gradually getting louder. Two words we all have heard are “yes” and “no.” No doubt an awesome step in the right direction. The speech therapist is working each day to find a consistent way for him to communicate. Jon has been introduced to some sign language and has been responding well to it. Some of Jon’s on-going struggles are his ability to focus and consistency.
On a physical level Jon is getting stronger every day.
In the near future Jon will be moved to a Post-Acute rehab inpatient facility where he will continue receiving daily therapies. As long as he remains active duty, his care will be covered. Right now the process of medically retiring Jon has been initiated by the military. Once it is completed, his benefits will move to veteran’s status and we understand that his rehabilitation therapy will be limited as a veteran. Our plan is to use the money you all have generously donated for Jon’s future needs that won’t be covered by insurance. I want Jon to receive the best care possible, as long as it is required, so that he can achieve optimal recovery.
Please continue to pray for Jon and others who are fighting similar battles with DAI. Words can never express how much we appreciate the love and support of each and every one of you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
