News & Updates

We know people tell us we shouldn’t apologize for the lack of consistent updates, but we can’t help ourselves. We know people are anxious to hear how Bryan is doing. 
He seems to be having more issues with his memory and it understandably frustrates him. The other day we asked him if he remembered why he had memory problems he said “because I’m dumb”. It broke our hearts and we just had to remind him that is not true and it’s not his fault! So then we go through what happened to him and that he has suffered a TBI. He usually is pretty quiet after that, trying to process it all. All we can do is hug him and tell him he has us and we will never leave his side.
Physically Bryan has made some improvements, but it’s slow. He’s still not back to where he was before his set back while at CNS, but hopefully one day. He’s quick to point out that his left arm has very limited movement and that his left hand doesn’t open. It’s almost as if, at that moment, Bryan thinks that’s the extent of his injuries. When he’s unable to get in and out of bed, shower, get on the toilet or get dressed by himself he’s quickly reminded of his brain injury has affected everything else too.
Can we just say how amazing the San Francisco Giants organization has been to Bryan and our family? They invited him to the last game of the season yesterday and he had the best time. Even if he doesn’t remember it tomorrow or next week or next month, we took plenty of pictures to remind him.
Larry Baer, Kruk, Kuip, Flemming, Renel and Jeremy Affeldt came by to see him. Even though he had met most of them before, he never remembers and is so excited to “meet” them. He made us laugh when he shook Kuip’s hand and he gave his hand a kiss. We thanked Bry for giving us that moment because we won’t ever let him forget he did that.  Another family joke to add to our list.
It was days like yesterday where he is so happy that helps get everyone through the times when he is depressed but can’t express why. Seeing him surprised and so happy on the jumbotron is something we will never forget.
The standing ovation he received reminded us once again of the love and support people still have for Bryan 2 ½ years later.
Thank you!!

A very special memory, at such an emotional game.
God bless each and every one of you!

I have never been much of a sports fan, but I think I may begin rooting for the Giants. I have kept Bryan and the rest of the Stow family in my prayers. I know it is not much, but know that there are people out here praying for you all.

You are all so awesome. And it is so true. Never apologize for long periods between updates. You are busy, and updates take time. We are just thankful that you are still making them. I will never assume I know what you go through, but I do have a brother who's family was hit by a drunk driver, he suffered a TBI, and still cannot work to this day. I also gave birth to an incredible son when I was 5 1/2 months pregnant, and he has mental and physical disabilities as a result. He is now 18. It is work, mental, and physical, and can be overwhelmingly exhausting. But we move forward, and we do it out of love. Bless you all for the hard work you are doing. You are setting examples to other people that most of the time you are probably not even unaware of. Prayers have always gone out to you, and always will. I wish I didn't live hundreds of miles away. I would love to bring a meal in if I could.

Hi Bryan-You are a very brave man! And you are doing a fantastic job!! Every time I think of you, which is often, I am inspired. On another note, our Giants had a lot of great moments and exciting games this season. We will be kind and allow another team a crack at the pennant this year, right? You continue taking care of yourself and please say hello to your great family. We all love you, Kathi Baker

You are an awesome family. I thank you for continuing to take the time to update us. Please always remember so very many people care. Bryan, I'm no longer a big baseball fan, but I'm always rooting for you. I'm so glad Bryan and the rest of your family got to go to the Giants game. Hugs and take care.

I have been following your story since day one, as my husband at the time worked for AMR in Cali as well. I know you never seem to talk about the POS scum of the earth that did this. I am ANGRY, i try not to mention it here, but its SO hard not to be! I am following VIA Google search as much as i can about the trial. Maybe it makes me no better a person to say i want to see these thugs rot in prison for the rest of their lives. My heart aches for you all, but i am so glad to see Bryan doing so much better than before .
# Jim Leary

I have followed the story from day one from here in New York. I have prayed for Bryan and am happy to see those positive posts. It is also great to hear stories of so many good people that make your days good ones and to offset the few evil people that unfortunately exist in our society. Keep the faith. God be with you.

Praying for Gods healing touch on Bryan, praying for Gods blessings and grace to pour down on him. He is the God of miracles and not one prayer goes unanswered. Waiting to see what wonderful things begin to happen to Bryan as a direct testimony to Gods unending love for us.

Thankful that he is surrounded by loving friends and family!!

Had tickets for the game yesterday, but had to cancel as my wife's mom was in the hospital. Hearing that Bryan was there, plus the 9th inning heroics, make me regret missing it even more.
To Bryan's family, you may or may not know how much Bryan and his battles with his injuries mean to us Giants fans. He is a symbol of overcoming adversity, fighting against overwhelming odds and coming back when all seems lost.
This may seem a little odd, being as I have never met the man or any of his family, but I love Bryan Stow AND his family. I hope someday I can enjoy a game with him.
God Bless him, his family and the little piece of every Giant fans's heart that his story has reached. Take care.

It was awesome to see you Bryan enjoying the game and on the big screen Sunday. Being a Giants fan and a Bryan Stow supporter, it was nice to see "my boys" together. Keep fighting my friend, and I will never take off my Stow bracelet, because that keeps me praying daily for your recovery.

Sending many prayers and good thoughts to Bryan and all of his family and friends from Colorado. I've worked in the medical field for many years and have followed Bryan's story from the beginning. No one deserves what he has gone through and it really makes sad that there is such evil in our world. Take heart, God will right all wrongs. God bless all of you.

Here's to Bryan Stow for being a SURVIVOR. I had to go search to find the video of him on the jumbotron at the Giants game from the other day. And like people said, he really did look happy. Kudos to the Giants organization for doing the right thing for a loyal fan who suffered a great injustice. Thumbs up to you, Bryan, and to your family, for all the hard work you've done together in your rehab and recovery.

If anyone else is looking for the video, here's a link (shortened with Google link shortener) to the NBCBayArea website. http://goo.gl/AWNiqT

You probably don't rememeber me ( out of the thousands that have contacted you) Byran's story touched my heart when it 1st happened. When it happened I was facing my own challenges, I lost my Mom, my job, and my home and pretty much everything. At the time I could only donate $5.00. After my donation I received the most beautiful card from your family thanking me. I keep that card close to me. I am grateful to say I have found a job, and a home. I am trying to make a donation each month, and everytime I am able too, I always receive a warm and touching response from your family. When I lost my job I did go back to college and obtained my medical assisting degree. If ever you need a break or need someone to visit with Bryan, I would honored. Please keep me in mind :-)

Byran and his entire family are always in my prayers and I hope that with each day you find healing ....

The donation I make today is in honor Bryan and the dodger fan who lost his life in such senseless violence.

Always in my thoughts,

Dear Bryan, I'm holding you and your family close in my heart and in my thoughts. I have been following updates on your progress at every opportunity. I'm pasting in a short article from The Week Magazine, which I sent to my 86 year-old mother and 93 year-old father. They have plenty of cognitive issues and memory problems. If this can help seniors with their functioning, maybe it could help you also. If it does, I hope you'll let me know. All my best, Mark

Health & Science
A new way to keep older minds sharp
by The Week Staff | September 18, 2013

To stay mentally sharp, seniors may want to swap their crossword puzzles for a video game controller. New research at the University of California, San Francisco, found that learning to multitask in a fast-paced environment significantly improved the cognitive abilities of older adults—and the improvement was long-lasting. Researchers asked volunteers ages 60 to 85 to play a video game called NeuroRacer, designed to train them to multitask effectively. In the game, players are required to steer a car down a winding road; after a while, signs begin to pop up, and the volunteers have to identify them while continuing to drive. When the volunteers first played the game, their driving skills fell by 64 percent when the signs appeared; by comparison, people in their 20s saw only a 26 percent drop in performance. But after a month of playing the game three times a week, the older adults handled the appearance of the signs better than untrained young people. What’s more, they scored higher on tests of short-term memory and long-term focus after training than they had before, and brain scans showed they had increased activity in regions linked to attention. “I feel like my brain is working better,” Ann Linsley, 65, a participant in the study, told The Wall Street Journal. The study “shows you can take older people who aren’t functioning well and make them cognitively younger through this training,” said Earl K. Miller, a neuroscientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. “It’s a very big deal.”

Bryan,

Keep fighting. The greatest joy is having family around you and you certainly have that. My son has severe brain damage and there are times where he is sad or angry and all we can do is just love him even more. Someday he and I will walk together with him fully restored, and you will do the same. In the meantime, enjoy the faith and love of those around you.

Hi Bryan and Family,

I think of all of you so often. I pray for a steady return to good health for Bryan. I want that so badly for all of you! I love hearing about Bryan's happy moments. God knows that all of you deserve as many of those moments as you can possibly have!! I look forward to the next fundraiser in Napa. My daughter and I have attended the first two and will attend them as long as Flan does them!!! My greatest hope is that Bryan can be there someday and give us a great big smile and 'hello' from the stage. That would be so awesome.

Stay strong...Keep the faith and Always Believe!

Love,
Lynn

Thinking of you as we head towards Turkey Day, hoping you'll have a wonderful meal and some funny moments to keep you laughing. I know your table will be filled with love; I just hope everyone continues to gather strength from each other. It is truly amazing the number of people (fans of yours!) who hold you all in their thoughts and prayers. Enjoy the food, family and football - Happy Thanksgiving!

Love,

P.S Surely with his passion for the Giants, Bryan must also support the 49ers?!

Hey Bryan, West Texas hasn't fallen off the map. No excuses but don't think I have forgotten you and your family or that you no longer remain in my prayers and thoughts. Glad you enjoyed the ballgame. Hang tight....the new season will be here again before you know it.

I wish you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving. God is still driving your ambulance and keeping you safe in his loving arms. Angels are sending love and prayers to you from this part of the US on the winds from West Texas. G

Hi Stow Family, hello Bryan, just stopping by because you popped into my thoughts over the weekend. I hope Bryan's recovery continues apace, and that his pain and discomfort are getting better with time (not to mention hard work in physical therapy!) You're a survivor, Bryan, and you'll always have my respect and admiration. I know I'm hardly the only one who feels that way.

I've been thinking about Bryan all day today. Bryan was in my dreams last night and it was very vivid. The storyline was quite random and didn't make sense, as dreams often are but throughout we were holding hands. It was just such a peacefull contented dream. I'm not sure why I felt compelled share this with you but just that Bryan has touched my heart and was in my dreams. It was nice. Much love to you all.

Happy New Year to Bryan and the Stow family.

I followed and posted on this website almost weekly until 2013 when my nephew Stephen suffered a brain bleed on January 7th. He went through several brain surgeries (like Bryan's) and he really never came back to us. We took turns visiting, holding his hand, and talking to him. I spent 4 nights a week with him, mostly with his brother Daniel who was not only a brother, but best friend. Unfortunately, it was not in God's plan for Steve to recover and he passed into God's hands the end of October. Needless to say, 2013 was NOT a good year.

I am happy to be catching up on Bryan's progress and will continue to check on him in 2014. Even though he has his struggles, he's doing okay - he has a family that loves him and he is loved by many of us out here.

Love, hugs, and continued prayers...always!

Tonight I was at the Tim Flannery concert in Mill Valley. The love and support for you lives on strong. God Bless Flan for continuing to bring us all together in order to celebrate and help you!!! Tim's concert supporting you is an annual event for my daughter, her boyfriend, my husband and I. We went to two in Napa: 2012 & 2013 and one in Mill Valley: 2014. We won't miss a year!! I have been following your story from the beginning, I never stop praying for you and the whole family. You all have a very special in my heart. Stay strong Bryan and believe in your ability to heal day by day. You are often in my thoughts!! Love & hugs, Lynn

Hello to all. I just want you to know that I think of Bryan often and keep him and your family in my prayers. I can't help financially but I feel praying for him is the next best thing and so that is what I do. What happened to him was horrible and I was appalled when I heard the story. I have not been to a game since because I don't feel safe at any sports event anymore!
My husband fell off a building a few years ago and lost his memory of it for a few weeks and it was really hard. He also lost the complete use of his left hand. So I can understand some of what you are going through. We had lots of prayers said on his behalf and memory came back but hand damage was too much!!!
I just want you to know that Bryan is thought of by even the simple homemaker and I felt that I needed to let you know that. Hang in there and know that you are not alone!!! I will continue to keep Bryan in my prayers!!

Bryan and family: I think of Bryan often as I work for the County of Santa Clara and conduct first-aid training for my Dept. with a former paramedic that knew Bryon and I have the upmost respect and admiration for paramedics as they are true unsung heroes everyday. I always wonder if Bryan may have helped me on a medical call in the past. I attended the AMR BBQ and bought a few shirts and a hat and they are wearing out! I always wear them at Giants games and I always get a thumbs up from fans when they see the shirt. Where can I buy more shirts and direct others to buy that would go to Bryans fund?

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.

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.

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.

Bryan,

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!!

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!
February 14, 2014

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
