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,

Hello Bryan, I met you today, and while you have never known me, I have followed your valiant journey and feel I know you. You are the same age as my son, so I feel a personal connection. You are as handsome in person as many posts say, and it was wonderful seeing you out and about. Please know you are, and have been, in my thoughts and prayers. I wish you continued success in your challenging recovery. You are an inspiration to so many, and while it may be difficult for you to see, you are a gift to not only your wonderful family, but to those who have never met you--but care so deeply for you.

Hey Bryan, we're all proud of you for being such a fighter and survivor. We know this has been profoundly difficult for you and your family. I think you and your family are amazing people. This is just a short note to tell you that you guys are often on my mind. Oh and Bryan if you're wondering how I know you, that's easy - you're the world famous Mr. Bryan Stow! As always, my thanks to the Stow family for providing this update.

Dear Bryan and Family - I wish you and your family all the very best in the world. I hope you continue to progress and gain strength and happiness and joy in your life. May you and your family always be blessed and find love and comfort and support.

With much love and prayers, and God Bless,

Hi Bryan, just stopping by to say hello and to let you know that I read most of your website yesterday about your injury and the strength, courage, and patience you have shown during your recovery. You have a great team of "cheerleaders" with your many friends and family and their love for you is so easy to see. I will be thinking about you and sending prayers to God above to strengthen you both physically and spiritually. Remember that He is the greatest Healer and His love for you knows no end.

To Bryan and Family, sending all of you a giant hug and so much love. God is definitely cheering all of you on, too. From here on earth, please always remember that so very many people are, too. I'm no longer a MLB fan but will always be a fan of team Stow. Peace and love. God Bless.

To Bryan and family: Your strength in the face of adversity is remarkable. Best of luck to you all!

Hi Bryan and family,

This long time Red Sox fan has been following your story, and recovery, from the beginning, and wish you all the best. Thank you for the inspiration you and your family have provided.

Hang tough! You are in the thoughts of so many.

I know another opening day will never go by, without thinking of you and your family, and I do think of you and your family often. Being a fellow Giants fan myself, an EMT in Oregon, and our birthdays only 16 days apart (same year too!) that you are a true inspiration to me, and I send you best wishes and prayers to you Bryan. I have told my wife and two daughters about you, and we look no further for a hero. Stay strong Bryan!! Go Giants!!
February 14, 2014

Hi Bryan and family ! Keep positive, and keep that sense of humor going. A belated Happy Birthday to you, Bryan. I hope you got to do something fun. I know it probably does seem strange to you to be getting messages and cards from people you have never met. You have touched many, and we care so much, we want to reach out to you and your family, to send love, prayers, and support to each and every one of you. It may have been 3 years, but none of you are forgotten. May God continue to give you the strength you need, the will power to continue in your therapy, the quiet restful time when you need it, and to always be surrounded by love. Blessings to all of you.

I understand that today marks the 3rd anniversary of Bryan's attack, and I'm sure that every day that has followed has been one of mixed blessings and emotions. I just wanted to pause a moment to send you best wishes and love from North Carolina, and to assure you that prayers are still forthcoming on the behalf of each of you there. I hope you never feel forgotten by those of us who have followed Bryan's progress. We always appreciate the updates, as well. Godspeed!!

Bryan you are a hero to me! I pray that God will bless you and your family for all you have been through. I am also so sorry what was done to you, the stupidity confounds me. Know you are loved by a whole lot of people you have never met.

While searching for a story, I stumbled across yours! You are internet news, and that's how I know you now. I wanted to wish you a belated Happy Birthday. You're a great looking guy of "35!" Here's wishing you the best year yet!

Hello Stowe Family, I have followed your story since the very beginning as well as most of the people here and I continue to pray for Brian and all of you. My heart broke that day and there continues to be a broken piece that will always be there for Brian and your family. We all wish there was something we could do. We wish we could turn back time for you and Brian. We can only pray for peace and healing. I keep Brian's website as an app on my iPad and each time I see it, I say a prayer. May God bless all of you. Sending love and hugs. Laurie Parr
