News & Updates

Merry Christmas Eve everyone!! Hard to believe that Christmas is here, and 2012 is right around the corner. We feel so blessed that we are able to spend Christmas as a family. We take this time to reflect on what the meaning of Christmas is and ever yone of you have shown us the true meaning. It's family, compassion, it's giving and sharing without expecting or wanting anything in return. We are continually humbled by the huge hearts of the people who have supported Bryan, Tyler and Tabitha, and our family.
We want to thank everyone for their kind words and support in regards to the interview on Rock Center. It was a hard decision to make to do the interview but we were assured that we were making the right decision after asking Bryan more then once if he was OK with it. Every decision we have made up until now has been in Bryan's best interest, and it's comforting to know that we can now make decisions WITH Bryan.

After a couple weeks of noticing a change in Bryan's alertness, it was discovered that he had a bladder infection. He's on antibiotics and is doing better but is back to being tube fed until his swallowing gets better. We have been given the OK to give him mashed potatoes and gravy tomorrow during dinner. The bladder infection affected his therapies but he's now back on track. We have decorated his room, which helps him remember what holiday is coming up. His little tree is covered in beautiful ornaments that were sent to him, as well as ones Tyler and Tabitha made with him.

We want to take a moment also to say Happy Birthday to Matt Lee, who would have been 27 today. Not a day goes by that one of us doesn't think about you and we wear your bracelet right next to Bryan's.
We picked this song for our update because the lyrics are truly inspirational and beautiful. It's not the most touching version of this song, but it's for sure the most suiting for our heavy metal lover, Bryan.

From the Stow family to your family....we wish you all a safe and VERY Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to you all! I saw the interview and it made me so sad to see Bryan having to go through all this. The comments made by insensitive and ignorant people on certain websites are disgusting. Don't they think that the family has been through enough without constantly blaming the victim or his friends.

I hope that 2012 continues to be a year for you all to move forward. I hate seeing Bryan suffer and his family suffer. You all deserve more than this.

Due to my daughters illness, it's been a while since we've written, but we still try to check in often to read about Bryan's progress. She is much, much better and gave me quite a scare, but I wanted to let you know through it all, she kept Bryan in her nightly prayers. Sending hugs out to the entire "Stowy" clan today and throughout the coming year!

Saw the story on Rock Center with Brian Williams and thought everyone did a wonderful job in sharing Bryan's story and sending a message to those responsible for even having to DO this interview. I doubt they have any remorse but maybe it'll help the other idiots out there who think violence and hatred is the way to go!! All of us here are thinking of all of you there and wish you "CHEERS" for a happy and a better NEW Year!
With love,
