News & Updates

Ever since March 31st, 2011, we have had the utmost respect and confidence in the LAPD, and the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office. We will continue to thank and praise them for all their dedication and hard work, regardless of the outcome, even after this is long over. Obviously we want justice, but that wouldn’t even be possible if it weren’t for all that has been put into it. They continued to update us and keep in contact but we were able to put all our focus on Bryan and not think too much about this case. We put our faith and trust into everyone involved and we know that it is important to them as well to see justice prevail in the end of all this.

Just read the latest news and am giving thanks that the judge has decided to prosecute those responsible for Bryan's injuries. I'm sure so many others post about their love and concern for Bryan and all his family, and I want to assure you that I too have followed his progress from day one, and have somehow felt a part of this entire experience. I check often for updates and am always glad to hear the latest concerning Bryan..good..and even not so good. My prayers are sincere and ongoing for everyone involved. I wish I could do more!

God's richest blessings on each of you there. I know it has been a long and difficult road to this point.. and of course the journey continues.

Much love,

Bryan, you are always going to be a BRAVE man!!! TBI is no joke, but the best of all is that you are still here, and able to mingle with your family and us. You are my inspiration!! I know it is hard and frustrating, but you are ABLE through God who created you. I pray to God for your speedy recovery. Love ya!!

I have been following this since the beginning. I am so happy there will be a trial. I know it is supposed to be innocent until proven guilty. As embarrased as I am for this tragedy I do believe they have the right people. I pray for Bryan and his family as this progresses. Justice will be served. I just know it. I will continue to pray for Bryan every day!!

kiThank God! Going to trial, and I too believe in a fair judicial system, but my first thought was how much weight Louie Sanchez has lost. Hmmmm - looks like guilty stress to me.

I am sorry for the families of these cowardly animals too; and in a way, it just says more about them. They had a choice about putting this horrible stress on their family. Bryan didn't.

Hugs and continued prayers

Justice will be served on those two thugs that attacked you. I pray that you will make a full recovery and you get hold your wife again and play catch with your son and daughter.

Hi Bryan and Family,

I could not stop thinking of all of you last week and was over thrilled when the judge ordered the case to trial!! It is so wonderful that all of the Stow family were able to continue to be with Bryan and help him, not worrying about the case due to all of the confidence in the people who have worked it for so long. I am so thrilled and continue to pray that justice does come.

However I continue to pray for Bryan and his family as well. Bryan has come such a long way and has improved greatly. He along with his family are kept in my prayers as no matter the outcome of the trial, Bryan continues to work on his recovery and the Stow family is always by his side.

Hang in there Bryan, we know that you can make this recovery a complete success!!

Hello Stow Family, I watched reports of the preliminary hearing with growing alarm as the first witnesses were all unable to identify Bryan's assailants. I'm relieved that the judge ruled there was sufficient evidence to order them to trial. But justice may come in the form of a plea bargain at some point, so I'm really glad to hear your family has a good and communicative relationship with the DA's office, as this way there will be no surprises and nothing happening without your consent and notice.

Your last post was so profound that I was left speechless. I did not previously realize that Bryan was unaware of what had befallen him. I continue to be amazed at how TBI patients manage to cope with daily existence in uncharted territory. And through your posts and responses from others like you, now I can be amazed at how FAMILIES of TBI patients manage to cope with the stress and heartache that is your lot. I've said many times that Bryan did not ask for this, but it's worth noting that none of you asked for this, either. So thanks for continuing to share your story here on this website. Every time I catch a Giants game I think of you guys and wonder how Bryan is doing. Cheers, Bryan. Cheers, Stow family.

hello to Bry and Family,
I still wear my SF hat with your P number on it, still toss on my orange and black wristband (though I tend to save it for special events as the letters are starting to fade). As one of the few who still work at AMR in Santa Clara, we your friends here and those who now work at RM (where most work now), are still here waiting to see you come back through that proverbial door so we can slap your hand, hug you tight, and wish you well. I see and work with Evan every week and have seen with my own eyes what can be accompished. TBI is a MF'er but we all celebrate your small successes, for those are what build up to breakthroughs. Thank you to the world for standing with our friend and his family. Go Bryan, Go Giants!

Of course, justice will be done. but God's will be done as well and HE will take care of Bryan and as nasty and unfair and ugly as this whole thing has been and still is...BRYAN is the MOST important person here and all my prayers and warm get well wishes go to him. Be strong Bryan and the whole Stow family. My wish for you...courage and patience and all the grace and healing power God has.

Hi Byran,

I hope you watched the game last night. The first Perfect game in San Francisco Giant history was thrown by Cain and they beat up the Astros winning 10-0!! It was a great game and I am so hoping that you were able to watch.

Bryan and family, I'll be thinking of you tomorrow night when the Giants start game 1 of the World Series. Can you believe how they've played when their backs are against the wall? They never give up!
We will never give up and I know you won't, either.

Two steps forward, one -- or two -- steps back. I know it has been a struggle for all of you, but you have so much love and support among you and from people around the country (and the world)who care. Remember that when you are down.

Bryan, I hope you can watch the ballgame and root for Zito to pitch another gem and the Panda to knock a couple off Verlander! Loved seeing you on the big screen on Opening Day and Tyler throwing out the first pitch - AWESOME! Hope to see you out at the ballpark sometime soon, too.

Giant wishes for continued healing and peace for all.

Double hugs as I don't think my initial post went through. Bryan, you are truly an inspiration and are loved by so many, myself included. That goes for your awesome family, too. I am so sorry to hear about the seizures--how scary :( Please take care and I am also so thankful that the trial of the trial is behind you all. God Bless all of you.

Hi Bryan!
You are always in my thoughts and prayers and best wishes. I greatly appreciate your updates. I even had prayers petitions for you at St Joseph Church in Mountain View where I live. I will start another prayer petition very shortly for you and your family. You have a loving and caring family. God bless you and keep you in his care as well as your wonderful family!

Dear Stow Family,
I followed the trial and prayed for more than you got. I continue to keep Bryan, your family, and friends and caregivers in my daily prayers. Those seizures sound very frightening, especially the after effects. It seems to be one step forward, two steps back, like so many other things in life. You are all awesome for what you do every day and night, making all the difference in Bryan's life. Stay strong!
Much admiration and love, Julia Winston

Hello to the Stow family: the prayers never cease for all of you. Bryan and you have been through such a long horrible journey, I am sure you wish you could just wake up from this nightmare. I thank you for this update.....there are many of us out here who continue the prayer circles and the prayer vigils....thank you for sharing this recent event. I truly wish there was something I could say that would ease the pain and the heartache. God Bless You All.
Keep fighting have a lot of prayer warriors on your are a gem ! ! !

Hello to all your family. What incredible challenges Bryan, and you, are facing. Last fall, I started the Marty Lurie Fan Club; first as a joke, but it quickly evolved into a way to raise money for Bryan's just seemed like the perfect way for Giants fans to contribute to our larger community. I'm always happy to hear about the various fundraisers. Good luck to you as you travel this road.
Best, Billie Forer

Thank you for the update. I hope that Bryan and the family know how large is his community of suppoters. If there is anything that we can do to support Bryan and his family just say the word!
Update July 21, 2014
Thank you for sharing and yea we know you been kinda of busy so don't ever feel the need to say sorry. It's great that Bryan will be taken care now wit the settlement I would assume it makes your parents and (you two) feel better know he is going to get the care he needs and should have. Not sure if you will be able to put his behind you but, it can move to the side or the back of your mind and your family can maybe somehow focus on their own life for a while. No amount of $ or time serve from the SOB will change anything. Bryan has a new normal. Try to break the OCD if you can. IT's a nightmare. Get him help for that. Usually when they get on mental disorder then more come to follow, keep an look out. Give him lots of love and no matter what and where your family is being though of
Update July 21, 2014
Much love to all the family as always--we are right there with you and will continue to be. Your family's strength and determination are amazing, Bryan:) Good to hear you are a movie buff--me too:)

Hi again, Bryan!
It always touches my heart to visit your site and it's beautiful to see how much love and support is present. You and your family are an amazing inspiration. Much appreciation!

If you're in town, you may enjoy this awesome event, coming up on July 19th. I’ve volunteered for Shared Adventures Day on the Beach events – some of the best days of my life. Hope to see you there!

Day on the Beach, the highlight of each year, where people with special needs and volunteers team up to share a full day of kayaking, outrigger canoeing, SCUBA diving, beach wheelchair rides, and life-changing memories. Day on the Beach has given participants and volunteers an unforgettable experience of breaking through barriers and seeing dreams become reality.
Generous volunteers lay down over 170 pieces of plywood on frames, creating a unique 5,700 square foot platform on the beach that enables those with mobility issues to travel over the sand with ease to all of our activities. We also offer beach wheel chair rides as an opportunity to explore the beach in a new way!
Every year we have free live music and entertainment, free food, sandcastle building, and much more! Participants represent a diverse range of ages (4 to 83 years old), and come from across the state and even the country to attend.
The 22nd annual Day on the Beach will be July 19th, 2014.
Contact Shared Adventures at (831) 459-7210 or email

With heart and big hugs from Santa Cruz.

I am so very thankful the jury verdict was in your favor. I pray it brings all of you some relief both that the stress of not knowing court-wise is over and simply in general with (I hope) being able to relax a little more. As someone else so beautifully said, I, too, thank you Bryan and family for allowing all of us to love and support you. You are all in my prayers and very best wishes. I know God is forever keeping close watch over you, too. Sending hug and love always.

Thank goodness that some semblance of justice rang through Los Angeles today! I am sorry that the jury did not see fit to award a higher penalty to the team, but I think/hope it's enough to meet your needs until you meet a higher ground. Thank you for letting us love you - because we do! We are still with you!
