I can't tell you how important it is to find the guys responsible. There is no way for us to say how sad our world has become. Lord we come to you today and ask for complete healing for Bryan. We ask that you heal him father from the top of his head to the bottom of his feet, we come to you with all faith that we believe these things are possible. We pray this in your name Lord God that you say if one or more come in your name you will hear us, we come before you now and ask that you bring peace to Bryan and his family at this time to heal him peacefully and let all things become as they were. For those of you who are not sure of faith, trust this, there is only two things, good and evil what would you choose. Have faith that god will heal Bryan. Love and Peace to Bryan and his family.
Tuesday, April 12, 2011 4:16 PM

Bryan, I wish for nothing but the best for you. I was a recent victim of such heinous crime, so I know your struggles all to well. I was diagnosed with a TBI (traumatic brain injury) and was in a deep coma for two weeks so don't ever lose hope. My thoughts and prayers are all for you when I heard of this. You rescue and help save lives for a living, and now you're the one that needs the help. I am a clear example of those you help and I am so grateful, so don't ever give up on any obstacles that may occur. I may not know you, but this website is a clear example of the support and love you have. Take care!

I can relate to your fear that day,cause I too made my first trip to Dodger stadium. It was indeed an intimidating situation, I can honesty say I won't do that again . While going through security dodger fans were swearing while a dodger family was In front of us . They appeared afraid to say anything. My heart goes out to you and your family. My prayers are with you to come back to your children. God Be with you.

Hi Bryan.

Just like most people on here, we've never met. The actions brought upon you were senseless and uncalled for. No human being should have to endure what you did on that night and what you are still struggling with today. I pray that you make a full recovery. My thoughts and prayers also go out to your family and friends who have stood by your side throughout this whole ordeal.

When my son was struck down by a vehicle, he sustained a terrible brain injury. No one thought he would live, let alone walk, talk and take care of his daughter. But he did. A neuro nurse once told me that a coma is a place for the brain to rest and heal and is so important to recovery. This is not just a race, it's a marathon so family members need to be strong and stay healthy. No one, not even brain surgeons or neurologists, can ever fully understand the brain and every prognosis they made was wrong. I never gave up and I never let my HMO push me around....remember, doctors get pressured from insurers, but they have the final say! I pray for Bryan's recovery .

Bryan and family, you are all in my heart and prayers daily. I can relate to the pain and anxiety that you as loved ones are feeling. I have a son that was in a horrible motorcycle accident last year and against all odds survived all his injuries. He was surrounded by angels as Bryan was that horrible night. My son was in a drug induced coma for about 4 weeks and it was pure hell on me and my family. God is listening! I'm a total believer in miracles. My son is a walking miracle and Bryan will be too. God has a purpose for him and in my heart, I feel it daily that he is listening to me. Thank you for the updates and I am continuing to pray daily for Bryans complete recovery. I pray for strength for all his loved ones in such a trying time. God bless and be with you all, sincerely and with love...Pam

Just a family of die-hard Dodger fans stopping by to say we are following your updates and hoping for only a full recovery. We are embarrassed and saddened that this happened to you. Not all Dodger fans are like the thugs that did this. Most of us are just laid-back So Cal people. My husband and I took our kids up to SF last June for the Dodgers/Giants series and we received nothing but friendly smiles and Ghiradelli sundaes. I would only expect that Dodger fans treat visiting fans the same. We are sending our love to you and your family and are keeping only positive thoughts in our minds. Lots of love to you and your family!!!

Thursday, April 14, 2011 3:29 PM
We are keeping you and your family in our thoughts and prayers. This was a senseless and useless tragedy. I can only hope that you will fully recover and that this is a wake-up call for MLB to begin to limit the amount of alcohol sold and to also increase security.

I know God is on your side. And so is America. You will recover!!
Thursday, April 14, 2011 3:42 PM

Bryan and Family,
On behalf of my family we would like to extend our thoughts, prayers and well wishes for a speedy recovery. I am sure you will pull through, with God's will and your strength, there will be no stopping you. And when you feel hopeless, lean on the Lord...and he will pull you up again. Believe in the power of prayer, believe all things are possible with faith and perserverance. You are here for a reason, never give up! And believe, that though your perpetrators escaped that night, they can not escape the eyes of the Lord. Their time will come and they will answer for what they did. May God bless you and yours today and always.

To Bryan Stow and his family,

I hope that you recover totally very soon. I feel so sad and angry for what happened to you. And even though I don't know you personally, I have children and grandchildren and family members and I would not like this to happen to any of them. I am praying that God Almighty will touch you with his healing and that you will continue being well and doing what you love most, helping to save lives and helping those who have gone through what you are going through now. I pray God will grant your family and friends the strength they need to overcome this tragedy and to stand by as you continue on the path to full recovery.
Thursday, April 14, 2011 6:12 PM
I am somewhat appalled that the Dodgers have not collectively donated at least $1 million to Bryan's recovery. The astronomical costs that Bryan's recovery will cost should be paid for by the Dodgers ownership, Dodger players, LA Police, and perhaps all of baseball. The last thing on the Stow families mind should be how this tragedy will be paid for.

I am so sorry to hear about what happened to you. I can't believe people can be so cold and heartless. It is only a game, & people take it way too seriously. It's terrible you cant go to a game and root for whoever you want without being assaulted. I really feel for you and hope that the men responsible go to prison for assaulting you. You look like such a nice person in the picture with your children and your a paramedic. I am truly sorry this happened to you and wish I could help. God bless and I'll pray for you to get better.

I certainly agree that The Dodgers should be paying for Bryan's Medical Bills.
However, they have the ability to provide the Police with a lot more-namely: the names and phone numbers of thousands of fans who could possibly provide clues such as License Plate Number. The Dodgers know info on all Season Ticket Fans . Ticketmaster also knows this info for a significant majority of the rest.
Somebody saw enough to assist the Police in catching these CREEPS!
Our Prayers are with Bryan

Bryan, I am so sorry for what has happened to you. After watching the news stories, seeing your beautiful family and hearing friends speak so highly of you in respect of the person you are and in the way you live your passion for life one cannot ignore all the lives you have touched and continue to touch through this horrendous ordeal. I realize you don't know me from Adam, but, I know God has a plan for you and he will give you the strength to perservere through whatever road this path leads you down. All the encouraging words of love and support and the amazing power of prayer from friends and strangers alike will carry you and your family and get you through to the day when you will once again be able to smile, hug and love those dearest to you. You are an amazing man and God's not done with you yet!!! Hang in there Mr. Stow........................... a friend in Ohio

I have been touched by your senseless tragedy and have closely watching the news in hopes of words that you are becoming healed and whole again and able to be back with your family and friends. It is clear that you are a good man from the absolute support and outpouring of love and support from those around you. Many wishes to a speedy recovery!

As a life-long Dodger fan, I'm ashamed of the behavior of the people that night, and I'm mortified that it came down to violence. No one had the right to harrass anyone the way they were, throwing food and cups, and name-callling.I always raised my kids to be good sports,and those idiots have shown us what poor sports they are, along with everyone who allowed it to reach the level it did. I'm embarrassed to call myself a Dodger fan now, I might even try to swtch to the Angels. My prayers are with Bryan Stow and his family, and I wish there was something I could do to help them. God bless them, and all the good sports out there.

Bryan and family.
We don't know you, but have been praying for you since we heard about this mind boggling incident. My husband and I are Angels fans, but truly LOVE all fans. We even went to Giants spring training facility this year for a game vs Angels (Giants won by the way). And, we had so much fun there - and the Giants fans were fabulous, even though we were in our Angels gear.
We continue to pray for a miracle - as we know there is a GOD who loves you dearly. We will continue to pray for a full recovery.
May God bless your family with strength in the days ahead.
# Angie

Sending you strength to heal, and strength for your family whos dedication to you can only be matched by Angels! We stand beside them in numbers, as we are also dedicated to you ! We pray they find who did this to you, setting them free from their guilt!
Our God is a powerful God and with the many prayers you recieve, He can not help but to hear them and heal you! God Bless You and your family
Thursday, April 14, 2011 8:18 PM
Bryan and family; God Speed be with you in your recovery. As a Dodger supporter and fan may I apologize for such horrific behavior on behalf of a supposed Dodger fan. No true fan would behave in this manner on any rival team fan. Please know this is NOT an example of Los Angeles Dodger Supporter/Fan behavior. May you and your family be blessed by the many prayers going out for your strength and recovery.

God Bless You and your family.

Bryan-- You haven't been awake in over two weeks now, but you will be soooo surprised when you do wake up and find allllll these good people who love you. Giants fans, Dodger across the U.S., some overseas...there are a lot of people who are pulling for you. Everyone is right, these people were NOT Dodger fans. No true respectful baseball fan would ever commit such a remorseless, pathetic, vindictive act. I am truly proud to call myself a baseball fan and see all different people from all walks of life and all fan backgrounds come together to support a fellow fan. You're one of us, Bryan. Keep fighting!! <3
Thursday, April 14, 2011 8:54 PM
Still in my prayers Bryan and his family. Hoping everyday gets a little better. Your my HERO Bryan, keep fighting.

Although we know not eachother, we are all brothers and sisters. When one sustains injury, we all ache. What hurts the most is that there are those on this earth who have such little regard for another person's life. They will be judged harshly. Loving thoughts and powerful prayers come your way daily. You will wake to realize the gift you have been given, the gift of knowing what a truly wonderful world of people this is and how we care for one another. This alone far outweighs any bad that cowards do. Peace and happiness. A sister.

As a Giants fan who has been to Dodger Stadium and has experienced the boo's and rude remarks I never feel safe there. Even with my husband being a Dodger fan I would think they would ease up, but they don't! It gives people more amo. Liquid courage does wonders that's for sure.
We have been following your story since day one. We went to the game after opening day at Dodger Stadium and nothing seemed to change. I sat by a very drunk young man who was heckeling a Giants fan just for wearing a Lincecum jersey. It took 3 innings for security to finally say something. We were not in the Pavillion we were right above the vistors bull pen. It's sad because it feels like regardless who they play, if you're not wearing DODGER BLUE your immediately a target! It's terrible, my husband always wants to get to any game after the first inning and leave before the 9th just to avoid all the boo's or comments. It's not fair!
Our thoughts and prayers will remain with you and your family. We pray to GOd for a quick recovery. We wish all the best to you, keep fighting!!!!
oh and GOOO GIANTS!!!

I am not a fan of either of these teams but I am a fan of yours. I pray for complete recovery for you. You have so much love being poured in for you from all over and I hope this gives your loved ones a bit of peace and pride. There are many more loving souls in this world than there are deplorable thugs. If the law doesn't catch up with them. Karma will. I'm just one of many people who are sickened by this event and I want you to be back to who you were once again. Love, peace and prayers for you and your family and friends.

I am a disabled (in a wheelchair) woman who lives in New Zealand.I have become a fan of the SF Giants through seeing Steve Perry (ex lead singer of Journey) at the home games last season.He is a singer who I have admired for years and because of him I now admire the SF Giants baseball team also.

My thoughts are with you and your family Bryan. I am still so deeply appalled at what happened to you and I hope they catch those terrible people and prosecute them for harming you.

Your story has touched mine and so many other's hearts and that has to be for a reason. Even though God does not control all of the bad things in this world, he does have a plan for us all and I know he chose you for a good reason. The love you are being shown and the horrible example this could be to others is a lesson I pray for it to never happen to another innocent sports fan. What has this country come to when you cannot go and cheer for your team without ending up in a coma because two inhumane monsters did not agree with the choice of your team's jersey. My prayers are with you and your family daily and I pray you recover quickly.xo

I pray that if it is according to God's will, that you will recover 100%! I pray that God would turn this horrible incidence and turn it into something wonderful, which is hard to imagine, but with God ALL things are possible! May the Lord be with your family and friends during this sad time.

“And their prayer offered in faith will heal the sick, and the Lord will make them well. And anyone who has committed sins will be forgiven. Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and wonderful results.”

I pray everyday ( yes, everyday ! ) for him and you to have the strength to make it through and for Bryan to heal, rest and do whatever it is that he needs to do. I am so sorry this happened to him. I hope his kids are doing ok and please hug them extra tight for all of us. I love all the people that have showed up to the fundraisers or just donated right to his cause. This is what real human beings do to help another one when they are down. You are not alone... we are all there, in spirit.. holding Bryan's hands and yours.

I am a San Francisco musician in a band "New Funk Generation"...we play downtown near Union Square for tourist that visit here from all over the world.

We would like you to know that our hearts and prayers are totally attached to you all (closest of family) who know this kind gentleman as a family member, while the rest of us know him as a headline story.

My the good lord open his eyes, with the light that only can be beamed from heaven, so that he may rejoin his family and most of all his children, who must really be missing their loving father on this day !!! In Jesus name, we send our
power through love and musical mystical vibrations to cause the miracle of life to once again fill Bryan's physical, mind, body and soul !!!!

HE WILL BE O.K.........and the pitiful creatures who did this to him will be caught and brought to justice any moment !!!!

Respectfully Submitted,

Brian Eric Compton

We've never met but I wanted to add to your prayer list for a healthy full recovery. You will be amazed at all the people praying for you, donating to funds for your family, I heard on the radio even Tim lincicum donated $25K, another guy is giving a signed Giants jersey...everyone (whether you know them or not!) wants you to be back at the park cheering on the Giants.

while you've been sleeping you;ve made hundreds of friends!!!

Be strong Bryan, Decide that you are in charge of this recovery and you;re going to do it. we will all be watching and praying.

WE want a Bryan Stow Night at AT&T Park when you come back...maybe even a bobblehead of you! how does that sound???

God Bless happy as much as you helps.

Dearest family of Bryan, I do not pray much. I often think that God has so much to do that I don't want to bother him. I often think that nothing I could possibly pray for is worthy of his ear. However, I have sent a prayer up to the heavens on Bryan's behalf. An orange tear accompanied that prayer. I have been a Giants fan since 1960 and can just imagine Bryan's thrill at the Giants journey and win in 2010. It was so much fun and all around the San Francisco Bay Area there was a sense of joy. A sea of orange and black t-shirts and hats accompanied by accomplishment in our eyes. We had a sense of camaraderie with other Giants fans. This is why there has been such an outpouring of love and caring for Bryan. Giants fans have a sense of fellowship that cannot be matched. Perhaps other teams are jealous of us. Our Giants and us fans. I am sorry that some Dodger dummy hurt Bryan so much. We must believe that he saw Bryan's joy on his handsome face and was envious of Bryan's spirit. I am sorry that Bryan was the subject of such cowardice and juvenile contempt. Please know that the collective prayers and love of the Giants community and Bay Area citizens will bring Bryan out of his coma soon. I am sure that he is just dreaming of being inside the Giants dug-out while a really good game is going on. He's chatting it up with Brian Wilson and Timmy. They'll win the game soon and Bryan will wake up. Sending care your way. Susan

Dear Bryan,

I do not know you personally, but as another HUMANE human, I send you all the warmest, most loving healing wishes. I hope through loving touch, kind words, and the good intentions of everyone thinking of you and helping you, that you will recover. It makes my heart so heavy with sadness when I hear or see of violence - I will never fully understand how people can do these horrible things, that often change lives forever. May you feel healthy and happy so soon.
Much love, Miranda

Dear Bryan,
We prayed for you last night in our prayer meeting, and we are asking God to completely restore you to health. What happened to you is wrong on so many levels, and it's painful to realize that "people" can be so inhuman in their actions. We love and support you and your wonderful family! Countless prayers are going up for you. May you and all your family be blessed today and in the coming weeks!
And Bryan's family--last year one of my neighbors was in a severe accident about 2 years ago. He had a major brain injury, and things were very touch and go for a while. But today he is well, and he's working again, and I see him out doing yard work all the time. And I've seen some of my own patients make amazing turnarounds from terrible head injuries. Hang on, know that there are so many people out here supporting you, and pulling for Bryan! Thank you for keeping us posted!
Praying for Bryan to respond soon, with love,

Saturday, April 16, 2011 10:59 AM
Dear Bryan,

My entire family is a Giants fan and we as fans get excited in the game as so do many others. I'm just so sorry that people took this violence to another level that has not only put your life in jeopardy but your family. One of my sons went to the Giants / Dodger game this past week and I had to tell him not to retaliate that Bryan needs our support more than more grief. He came home and said, "Mom there was high stress levels at the game towards the Dodger fans." He said Mom it was amazing that they gave Bryan a moment of silence you could feel the love! With that we all as fans need to remember what you went through and pray and support you in our prayers and in our heart.

Remember when you heard the words -
and your mind went blank - you were in another world
God heals
Remember in your darkest hours -
when all that surrounds you is pain and sorrow
God heals
Remember friends' prayers - your family's encouragement
- glimmers of hope from everyday angels
God heals can hear Him now -
always there - yet never this close
God heals
It's just another day -
yet everything has changed - and you hear yourself say
God heals
Birds are singing -
the sky is a beautiful blue - flowers are blooming...
God heals
Truths that you knew as a child -
awakened again with new understanding
God heals
Remember when others can't -
that life is a gift - each day to treasure
God Has Healed

Bryan, you will heal. God Bless you.

It is not uncommon to become secluded and withdrawn after a tragedy strikes. A senseless and split second decision has produced so many long term consequences. I am thankful your loved ones are brave enough to have a site created and communicate to others who have created social connections which allows others to be informed and impacted by your experience. How selfless an act it is that your family is willing to open themselves, be vulnerable, and receive blessings on your behalf?

I have been praying for encouragement and endurance for all of your loved ones. It's a painful and frightening time in their lives. I pray for your recovery and for the strength required to achieve it. If there is anyone deserving of a miracle, it is you. Your survival is certainly a testament of how powerful love can be. That's why I believe you're still with us today. You have so many people that love you and it's impacting the world around you.

I think it's a shame something like this needs to happen and so much is lost in order to put humanity in check. Let's hope your story can be a point of reference for everyone, around the world, and accept this was a result of a CHOICE. Perhaps it may prevent others from choosing to be violent against each other.

For now, though, my focus in prayer is for the miracle of healing for you and everyone that suffers with you. Keep fighting Bryan!!!

Looking forward to seeing a big smile one day!

I have followed this story from the beginning and my heart sinks when I read the updates. I had a relative that suffered a traumatic brain injury through a car accident that went through a lot of what Bryan is currently going through. Her situation didn't end well. I am also a liaison for a non profit fund that helps off-road racers that are injured and I have seen a lot of them suffer serious injuries that have left them in comas for over a month and are on the road to recovery. One is already riding again and one is still recovering. Another recovered to a point and is functioning, but will never be the same person we all knew. I wish I could tell you what Bryan's outcome will be and that everything will be okay. All I can tell you is to just be there for him. Talk to him, read to him, play his favorite music and he will know you are there. When his brain heals, he will wake up, but in the mean time, be patient and let the Lord do His work. The hardest part is the waiting and not knowing. My prayers are with you every day. Find strength in the millions who are praying for your family and for Bryan and find comfort in the love that surrounds you.

To Bryan and his family:

My name is Jacob Schaafsma and I to was in a coma with the prognosis of never waking up. Death was imminent for me. I was below a one on the Rancho scale and barely a 3 on the Glasgow coma scale. I spent a total of three months in a coma but with a tremendous amount of support from the community and our church but most importantly my family I pulled through. I am now an active man pursuing my college degree. I send all my love and support to you guys. I have an immense amount of faith in you Bryan. If your family needs someone to talk to I volunteer my ear or that of my amazing parents. You can email me if this is something that is desired.

Yours in faith,

There is no way to make sense of such can people be so mean. I will continue to keep Bryan and your family in my prayers.

On behalf of my family please accept our apologies for this barbaric act. I hope that your loved one does make it through he seems like an all around hero. Who knows who these idiots are and we are repulsed at their conduct; it is inhumane, violent, and it just does not make sense. The fact that they have not turned themselves in shows that they are straight out cowards, there is no excuse for this whatsoever.

The Dodger organization needs to do a better job at security, this is a very dark mark in Los Angeles and am ashamed that an incident of this magnitude is associated with the city that I love.

We all angelinos need to repudiate and act against this type of incidents, this can not be ignored.

I have been in the Bay area out in business and do not follow sports. I am appalled that this took place.

We will be praying for a speedy recovery, and for healing.

Being a single mother I know how important every life is in a family, and I know how much your children need you. Your impact on them is so powerful--you cannot possibly consider anything other than survival. You will continue to be their father--strong, humorous, and the amazing leader that you are; you'll be an even greater beacon when this is behind you.

Our prayers that these perpetrators are located and brought to see the devastation their actions have brought upon this family, and the sorrow of thousands of people; not only for you, but for pitying someone to be as heartless and ungodly as they have been. God speed them to do the right thing and to turn themselves in for justice and their own peace of mind.

God bless you and your family, but even more--your children who await your return.

Dear Bryan and the Stow family:

Even halfway around the world in Pakistan, your story is heartbreaking to all of us who are praying for you to recover soon. It might be a tough road ahead but our prayers and thoughts are with you and your family.

As a sports fan, it is impossible to comprehend how anyone, no matter who they support, could do this to another human being because sports bring people together ... you know the cliche, there is no I in team! From the day of your injury, I have been following the story in the hope that there is good news around the corner. I am determined and believe that there will be!

Your family has shown such courage and grace in the face of this terrible tragedy that all of you deserve better. The cowards that perpetrated this act should be found and brought to justice. Some of us would like a few minutes alone with them, but then, that would be sinking to their level wouldn't it!

Apart from the reward being offered, anyone who knows the cowards that did this should step forward because their silence makes them complicit in this heinous act. Shame on them all for their cowardly deeds and desire to avoid responsibility.

Once again, our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

This type of incident is rare where we are from but we are not immune to it and I am now a little more "Paranoid" attending sporting events here as a fan of another team. Such a horrible way to live and enjoy sports but unfortunately now it is a nessasary evil.

New laws must be passed in BOTH countries to ensure the protection of all fans attending sporting events no matter what city they are in.

I am not a vengefull man by any means but for the first time in my life I am actually hoping someone, YOU, sues the Dodger organization for everything they have. Take ownership of this team and fold it. Maybe then MLB will take notice and do something to ensure the fans of this great sport are always protected. The only way owners are going to learn is to hit them where it hurts the most and that's in the pocketbook.

Stay strong, stay positive and may God bless you! You truly are a hero!

To all of you in Brian's family,

First, I cannot begin to imagine what a shock and heart break this has been for all of you.

As I read of Brian's story this morning here in Rome, Italy, in our Italian papers, I was so appalled by what happened to Brian. How brutual for these men to attack someone who simply wanted to attend a ball game!

I checked online and found this site as I really wanted to convey my promimse of prayer for Brian. You must let him know that there are so many people in the world rooting for him and that he has to fight with all his might to get well and triumph over what happened.

I just wish there were some way I could wrap my arms around each one of you, his dear family, and comfort you during this most difficult time of waiting.

Since I can't do that, I will ask God to do it for me with consolations and graces to strengthen you with courage and fortitude and unswervering hope.

May God be with you all.

God bless
With love and prayers
Sister Rita Dolores

My thoughts and prayers go out to Bryan Stow and his family at this time all the way from Sydney Australia. I have been following your story on ESPN.COM and find it unbelieavable this kind of thing can occur especially at a sporting event.
Sport is something which everyone should be able to enjoy and not taken so seriously that a person ends up in this situation. Its wrong period.
Monday, April 18, 2011 6:25 AM
Although I am on the east coast, I have been following your story since the news broke. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Keep fighting, you are an inspiration to so many across the country.

Sending hope, healing, strength and prayers for you and your family. This unnecessary tragedy has touched many hearts, mine included. My husband and I were appalled and heartbroken to think that an unprovoked act of violence could happen to someone simply for being a devoted fan of their team. It is times like this I have to ask what has happened to our society.

Prayers that you awake soon from the medical induced coma and continued reisilience for your family. Blessings to all of you.

Prayers have been lifted up for you & your family. God is the great physician & does listen to prayers. I was put in a medically induced coma for 3 weeks during 2007 due to blood clots going to my lungs after surgery. God answered many prayers & kept me alive.
To Bryan's family: keep talking to him. He can hear what is going on. When I woke up from my coma, I knew things that I wouldn't have known without hearing them. I thought that I had dreamed them & was very confused. I didn't remember alot about what had happened, but somehow knew that my daughter was pregnant, that she & my son-in-law had bought a house, & that my son had graduated from high school, among other things.
Remember that God is with you always.

I cannot believe how a human being could do something like this. You all are in my prayers. To the animals who did this, they need to be put into a cage and left there. There could be no excuse or defense they could ever give to justify what they did to Bryan. Stay strong and close together, prayer and love is very healing.

Bryan Stow, I hope that you get better and get back to enjoying life. I also hope that these criminals get what they deserve. We can't tolerate ignorance in a country that was founded with freedom in mind. What happened to you is the lowest of the low and those responsible should be ashamed and held accountable for what they did to you. These are not people but savages and they should be treated that way with the rule of law. Good Luck with your recovery and I hope you the very best. I might not know you personally but reading your story touched my heart and put me in a position where I felt very close to you.
Stay strong my man, you have so much longer to live!!!!!

I am sending you wishes and prayers from Washington, DC. I hope you make a full recovery from your ordeal. It will probably be a long road ahead but I am hoping and praying for you to get well.

I don’t think I speak out of turn when I offer my heartfelt apologies and wish you speedy recovery from all the Dodger fans. Semper Fi!!

Along with the others on this website, I can't understand the senseless act of this crime. Although we cheer for different teams, we love the same sport and the tradition behind it. My prayer is that you are back out at the game with your kids very soon. If you ever find yourself in Denver, there is a ticket with your name on it to a Rockies/Giants game. We can celebrate the game and what real sportsmanship should be. Our teams will be playing today and while I'll be rooting for my team I'll be thinking of you and wishing you a speedy recovery.
Monday, April 18, 2011 10:03 AM
We are all keeping you and your family close in heart, thought and prayer. Thank you, Bryan, for choosing a career that brings comfort and help to others. In like manner, I hope that all the love that you have shown will be returned to you one hundred fold and that you have felt the love and respect that others have for you in their hearts. I hope that you will get well very soon.

To the stow family.

I feel as if Brian is a brother I never knew. I live in so. Cal and found out a few years ago that is was not safe to go to dodger stadium as a giants fan. I have a 9year old son who is a fourth generation Giants fan. All he wanted for his birthday was to go see his first Giants game but i had to explain that it is not safe to go o dodger stadium. We are so sorry for your suffering and the only thing that went through my mind was i wish i was there to help keep this from happening to you or anyone else. I pray daily that God gives you and ur family the strength to get through this and get your lives back to as normal as possible. There are many offering their love nd prayers regardless of favorite team or sport. If dodgers fans are true fans they will come forward with info to get these cowards their just punishment.

Our hope and prayers to you and your family.

Dear Stow family, Having been thru what you are going through, I know exactly what your feeling. My son was hit by a car on Feb 10 2008 and suffered a traumatic brain injury. He also had many other injuries including two broken legs and a broken arm. He had three brain surgeries and was in a coma for 3 weeks. When Bryan wakes up you and he will be facing many challenges. There is no way to know how he will be till he wakes up.But no matter how bad he may seem he will progress. It is a slow recovery but the brain does heal.My son healed with the help of many supplements and hard days at the therapist and the gym. He was only 21 at the time and a great athlete, which probably helped in his recovery. My son today is doing well ,still trying to get back to playing the game he loves ,baseball. He is slowly getting his skills back. Just know that I will be praying for Bryan and if you ever need to talk you can email me and I will be happy to give any advice I can.

God bless, Tom Mare

Bryan:I am so sorry how low society has gone:right in the toilet. It's pretty damn sad that a person who goes into the oppostion's ballpark gets beat up because he/she roots for the other team. I'm a Mets fan who hates the Yankees, but I would never stoop down to the level of the punks who beat you up did. Hopefully they'll nab these dirtbag losers & give them a taste of what they did to you on that fateful night. You & your family are in my prayers. Hang in there big guy. Peace.

I am a Red Sox fan and I am used to the constant ribbing I get from my Yankee and Rays friends here in Florida. At least with them its friendly banter but I have witnessed first hand people who can take things way to far. When I heard the story of Bryan and everything he went through I was at first angry and now saddened at what would make people do something so hateful. My heart goes out to Bryan and his family. My thoughts and prayers will be constantly with them. Stay strong Bryan. Millions of people are praying for you. For the love of the game GET WELL SOON BRYAN.

I just feel sick to my stomach over this tragic event. How something this horrific can happen to such a wonderful man just because he was the fan of a different team is just heart wrenching. Sending all my love and prayers for his total recovery and support to his family and friends during this very sad time!!!

Bryan, I have never met you but have followed your story since I first heard about it. I am so sorry to hear that what should be a safe and friendly pastime meant tragedy to you and your family. Keep holding strong. I hope to see the headline of your recovery soon on SportsCenter. That will be a day to rejoice.

Just wanted to let you all know I am praying for Bryan everyday and have posted the website and facebook page on my facebook page so others will also pray for him. I am not a fan of baseball or any sports and things like this that happen are one of the reasons why. People drink too much and then get too carried away in their support of a specific team that something like this happens. I hope and pray that they catch the barbarians who did this to Bryan and if they don't, rest assured that when they meet their Maker in Heaven someday, they WILL be judged and they WILL get what they deserve! Hold on to God's strength and He will get you all thru this trying time. His strength will give you strength for Bryan. I know he feels your love and that will help in his recovery. Love and prayers to you all!

Dear Bryan and family,
I think about you every day and mostly every night when all is quiet. I am a nurse and I know this will take time. To the family, keep talking to Bryan he can hear you... To Bryan, one day when you get to read and see how many people were pulling and praying for you, you can see how there are way more good human beings in the world than bad. Goodness will prevail and so will you. God has plans for you here on earth and you will make Him proud. God Bless you all, stay strong, and keep the faith! If you ever need a nurse I'm here. <3 JJ the nurse

Dear Bryan and Family,

Many people are thinking of you and pulling for you. I am remembering the experience we went through with my grandma just a few months ago. She made it out of her medically induced coma and the seizures. I know she could hear us when she was sleeping as I'm sure Bryan can hear and feel your love and presence. Anyway, I've been checking the website every day and I'm thinking positive thoughts for you and your family.

From what I have read your great guy and a great dad and I know you will get through this. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

They have taken away a human beings life, as it was. How can they live with themselves?! And the other people in their car that drove away that fateful day. SOMEONE PLEASE COME FORWARD.

Stow Family

This is one of my favorite hymns at mass which is so fitting for you, what you're going thru and Holy Week.


I will come to you in the silence
I will lift you from all your fear
You will hear my voice
I claim you by choice
Be still & know I'm here

Do not be afraind I am with you
I have called you each by name
Come & follow me
I will bring you home
I love you & You are mine

I am hope for all who are hopeless
I am eyes for all who long to see
In the shadows of the night
I will be you light
Come and rest in me.

(repeat) Do not be afraid

I am strength for all the dispairing
Healing the one who dwell in shame (this part isn't for you Stows)
All the blind will see
All the lame will run free
And all will know my name

Repeat Do not be afraid

I am the Word that leads to all to freedom
I am the peace the world cannot give
I will call your name
Embrasing all your pain
Stand up now and walk and live

Repeat Do not be afraid

Prayers and love sent your way.

Dear The Stow Family,

Sending prayers and love! Thinking of Bryan and praying for his quick, full recovery. So many people around the world are thinking and praying for your dear Bryan. Also praying that the thugs that have brought this tragedy to your family get quickly caught and put in jail for LIFE. Thank you for the updates you don't have to share your family issues with the world but I am so grateful you are. I think of Bryan all the time and I have never met him but am happy to know of his progress and I do believe the prayers from around the country will help heal him.

To Bryan and family,

I don't really know why, but Bryan's story has touched me tremendously. Maybe because my husband's name is Brian and he was an EMT. Maybe because I am a mother of three. Perhaps because I have a strong sense of justice and become upset when I hear of blatant, terrible injustice. Probably it is a combination of all of those.
At any rate, I have been praying for you every day...for healing, for strenght, for justice. So many people are touched by this story. It encourages me because despite how horrific it is, it highlights the best in people...all the people praying, the unity of people tired of thugs, the generosity of people.
I hope that somehow God allows you and your family to take these good things away from this incident and eases your anger, grief and pain. I will continue to lift you up in prayer.

# Diana

I have been a lifelong Dodger fan, born and raised here in SoCal. I have always enjoyed the Dodgers/Giants rivalry, and always enjoyed the fact that our boys held the advantage in the World titles, 5-0. (i even mentioned this at my sister's wedding in my speech as the maid-of-honor, seeing as she was marrying into a family of lifelong Giants fans!) Last baseball season was not easy, watching the Giants win a World title, as we Dodger fans get further and further away from 1988. But I will tell you, with all sincerity, that I will be hoping the Giants repeat, if only to give something for you and your family to bring you joy. This whole event has brough to light that sports is created to take us away from our day-to-day life struggles and give us something to escape reality and have fun. Bryan and Stow family, I pray for you often throughout the day that first and foremost, Bryan makes a full recovery, and secondly, that your family stays as close as it has become throughout this tragedy. Thirdly, that the perps are found and brought to justice, and finally, that we all remember that we are brought together by our love of our team and our loveof the game. As they say, as soon as that last out is made, we are all human beings and the rivalry ends. God bless you, Stow family, and God bless the SF Giants. - Lifelong Dodger Blue Girl

A strange things happens: Every time I visualize Bryan and send healing prayers his way, my body begins 'buzzing' and I feel something like goosebumps deep within my soul. I know it is the hand of God, and the power of prayer I feel, and I remain confident that with each day Bryan is being healed. Remain patient, confident and focused on the truth which is that all eyes are on Bryan, all hearts are with the entire Stow family. You each have an open invitation to come visit our family in Colorado. Any time. It would be our honor to meet you and provide any of you a respite for a few days.

Mrs. Stow,

God bless your family. When I heard of this tragedy I couldn't believe someone could hurt another baseball fan in this manner. The great sport of baseball is ashamed of these kinds of fans or so-called fans. I have 3 little ones under the age of 8 and as a mother, can't imagine what you are going through. I've actually cried over your pain. God bless and watch over Bryan as he sleeps. I really wish there was a way the Dodgers team would strike all games until they find the people/animals responsible for Bryan's injuries. They are PURE COWARDS!

Just know, what those men do in the dark, will come out in the light someday. I pray for your husband all the time. He reminds me alot of my husband. I know we are strangers but this really impacted me and I'm tearing up just writing this to you. I'm so sorry this happened. Lean on god during this time. Prayers DO work...thank you so much for taking time to post a website and giving others an opportunity to try to ease your pain by the well wishes. Please don't give up hope, he will pull through, I know it.

Please talk to Bryan as he sleeps and let him know there are soooo many people praying for him. My company mentioned it in our company huddle and everyone is praying for his recovery. Take care Mrs. Stow - Your family is absolutely beautiful!

Bryan & Family-

We have never met and probably never will, but this story has affected me so deeply as I can't imagine why one (two) human(s) could do what was done to Bryan. My heart, prayers and love go out to Bryan and his family at this very trying time, and for the future. I pray daily that Bryan comes out of this healthy and vital, and I pray for strength and courage for his family for this journey ahead. I hope you can feel all the support that so many of us are sending you. STAY POSITIVE, STAY STRONG and know all of us Giants fans are sending all the positive vibes as possible. Lean on each other and know there would be nothing that would make me happier than to see Bryan at AT&T Park...throwing out a first pitch. Take care of each other.....and fight like hell!!!!

We're still praying every day, many times a day for Bryan and his family. We're thinking and sending healing thoughts, and positive thoughts for his future... like Bryan being with his family and those he loves...Bryan taking his kids to the Boardwalk to ride the Giant Dipper, taking them to Natural Bridges to see the Monarch butterflies, and positive things Bryan and his family and children would enjoy. This may seem like a long haul (and it may be), but staying focused on the positive goals for the future may help to get through this.

It also may help to realize, although it seems so tough right now, Bryan and his family can survive this and come out the other side even stronger and more grateful for every day and every moment they have together. He's obviously a strong guy with a fighting spirit to have survived, and there are millions of us praying for him, so never give up hope that he will be fully restored! May God bless him and heal and restore him, and bless those who love him to help them get through this.

You are all in our prayers,

Blessed is he who has regard for the weak;
the Lord delivers him in times of trouble.
The Lord will protect him and
preserve his life;
He will bless him in the land
and not surrender him to the desire of his foes.
The Lord will sustain him on his sickbed
and restore him from the bed of illness.

But you, O Lord, have mercy on me;
raise me up, that I may repay them.
I know that you are pleased with me,
for my enemy does not triumph over me.
In my integrity you uphold me
and set me in your presence forever.

Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel,
from everlasting to everlasting.
Amen and Amen.

Praying everyday, checking website several times a day. I had a thought. I read that Bryan is a Queensryche fan. Being an old metal head myself, I don't care for Rap or Country and if I heard either of those, it would most certainly wake me up to complain. What if you found a song that he always had complained of, put it on an mp3 player and stick the headphones on softly but loud enough for him to want to wake just to pull the earbuds out. Wake Up Bryan. We all want to see you!

I know you guys probably don't want to get unsolicited, layman advice, because what the heck do I know. But I do know my child is my main motivation for living. I just wonder if hearing his children's voices would be a motivator for him. If it is too stressful to have them in the room, maybe record motivational messages from them to him. I bet their voices will do wonders for him. Just wanted to throw that out there. I think about this man who I don't even know every day and am in all sincerity wishing the best for him and strength to everyone in his life.

# Not a Giants Fan - but a BRYAN fan
Friday, April 22, 2011 2:50 PM
As the name says - I am not a Giants fan, but I AM a human being. And that being said, I can't help but get choked up looking at the photo I saw in the SF Chronicle of Bryan and his children. Having just become a parent last year, I cannot even begin to imagine my son in the position the Snow children are in - not knowing if their Dad will be ok, and wondering why this even had to happen.

Some people take sports team and city rivalries WAY too seriously. It's only a game, folks, and did that require nearly beating a man to death? But this goes outside of Sports, and is more reflective of the few bad apples that probably make it out to every game, be it pro football, baseball, etc. These punks were simply looking to take out their aggression on someone, and unfortunately Bryan was in the area. What a shame. Wonder if the perpetrators know that the guy they almost beat to death works for a living SAVING OTHER PEOPLE'S LIVES? Doesn't really make sense now, does it?

Sending out some love to you and your family from Berkeley, Big Bry. Saying prayers so you can make it back home safely.

For Bryan and the Stow family. I am sure that each day brings new challenges, and at times it must seems endless but, when a family member is ill or hurt we soldier on trying to do the best we can. While you are faced with these challenges. I hope during those quiet times when you think back to when everything was okay, please know you are not alone. I don't know you but not a day goes by that I don't wonder how is Bryan? How is his family? How are the kids? All the while hoping you are coping and feeling the support of all us praying for you. I will continue to pray for Bryan's healing and strength for the family. I hope these words comfort you because they come from the heart. Stay strong and know that you are not alone. I wish you all the very best and godspeed your recovery Bryan. Love to you all from Char!

Thank you for the latest update even though it sin't what we were hoping.

Just as the opening of this post "Peasce of the Lord be wiith you" so is our country.

I know that I can speak on behalf of the many people that have been putting post on this website, We are with you. We will continue to pray with you and for you.

Ill coninue you to pray the Rosary for you and say an extra prayer at Easter Vigil Mass tomorrow.

We have seen the worst in mankind which lead to this website in which weve see the best of mankind.

Bryan has united an entire country, our neighboring country to the north Canada and the world in a common pray for good to happen.

I'm looking forward to you being able to call a piest for a communion service in Bryan's room and Bryan will be able to recieve communion with your.

Praying for you and your family daily.......the Giants won last night against the Pirates.......Wilson closed and made fans proud. 3-2 was the final score in the 10th inning.

Stay strong and get better Bryan! Don't stop believing......prayer is a powerful thing.

I m so very sad still about this handsome stranger who went to see his team and was given a devasting consequence for NO reason from cowards who had nothing better to do...

I think about him and believe that god will prevail and save him, give him back his life to share with his family and all the people who are there for him...

You will be blessed

You are in my thoughts and prayers

I am just so sad to hear that Bryan still under this conditions, and for you as a family to be going through this heartache. Even though I am a complete stranger who is not a fan of baseball I am still human and to hear that this horrible act of hate and euphoria for a team/sport happened in my own town makes me so sad and helpless. Even though anger should not be involved I do feel angry to see that someone was capable to hurt another human being the way they hurt Bryan. I am a firm believer that God is big and he would not let this act go unnoticed and those individuals that cowardly attacked Bryan will eventually pay for their crime. We all have something called Conscience that reminds us of the right and wrong and whoever knows or was involved with this will not be able to scape that horrible feeling.
I keep praying that Bryan will get out of this and that he will be able to share many more memories with his family, children, friends and why not his favorite team!
Please receive my love and my good vibes. I am ashamed to say that I am from LA... keep up your faith and best wishes to you all.

Though we are strangers, we pray every night for 2 things.....that Bryan Stow gets better and for Justice- that whoever did this will be found and brought to Justice....because this just isnt right. We ask God that these prayers be answered....that there be some hope for the Stow family during these difficult times now and those days that lie ahead. As a mother my heart aches for Bryan mother- that is your baby boy and no matter what, the love for your child is immeasurable and without limits....May God answer our prayers, May Bryan begin to come back to you and May God hold your aching hearts in His Hands.....

To Bryan's family
I am truly sorry that this happened to your son and am very ashamed to be from the Los Angeles area. I will never again attend a Dodger game or watch one on the television. The animals that did this to your son WILL be judged, if not in this life, in the next. I know there is little comfort in this but I believe God has a gentle hand on your son and will deal with much less compassion with those responsible for all your pain. I also pray that the Dodger organization will feel the weight of this great offense and cover ALL the medical expenses as well as your person expenses and continue to pay for any long term care. It may not be much but if the expenses get overwhelming and you need other accommodations, you are all welcome to stay at my home as my guests for as long as necessary. Just let me know by return email. May God Bless all of you.

Dear Brian and Family.

There isn't a giants game that goes by that I dont say a little prayer for your speedy recovery. I wish all the best to your family to stay strong and think positively. You have changed how every stadium thinks about security which is an amazing feet. Unfortunetly it isn't under the best circumstances. I cannot wait to read that you are out of the coma and aren't showing any signs of seizures. I am one of thousands and I mean thousands, of ppl who have never met you but all have a connection to you, and are praying for you. PS. Karma will find who did this....

Get well soon.

The Martorana Family!

I live in hoboken nj, the birthplace of baseball. I've played/watched my whole life

I honestly can't believe something like this could happen in this day in age and I can't offer enough sympathy and love for your family in your time of need.

Even though I seriously hope they do...I don't know that they will ever catch the losers that did this. What I can say though as an offer of consolation to you is that the universe WILL correct this situation in the end. I am only 32 but so far the onething I really believe in my life is that that you get what's coming to you in the end. It's the same reason I believe that Bryan will be OK and tuesday's results are headed that way, right?

The guys that did this will pay one way or another. I hope that believing this will help you and bryan in some small way and I wish I could do more for you to help.

Do not forget about the amazing power of nature to correct imbalances that occur every day. This is definitely one of them and it will be dealt with in the end.

much love - carmine

Bryan, several years ago you came into my life and you were sweet and you were kind and you were so full of life & wanting to live every moment. I was so impressed. I was touched by your extreme love & devotion for your family, especially your children and your sisters. Your were so proud. I'm glad that I got to know you then but now regret making a choice not to remain in your life. Now I feel this emptiness, I can't even imagine what those close to you feel. I pray for your recovery, you are strong, I know that. So please keep fighting, if there's anyone who can, it's that firefighter I once knew.

To the stows,

I have never shared poems to the public..EVER! But I wrote this and I want you to know I check these updates daily. I have never followed a story so close in all my life. My heart and prayers go out to you.


Although the outlook is dark,
or so it may seem.
Hold your head up,
all you must do is dream.

There is light at the end of the tunnel,
I do beleive,
Just pray and ask god,
and you shall receive.

The gift of love, the gift of life,
all in the name of Jesus Christ,
Deliver him from the unforseen,
Spare his life, for all to see,

Bryan, open your eyes, don't cave in,
look really deep inside,
you will find the strength within.

You have had time for mind and body to rest,
This has been the ultimate test.

He is speaking to you,
letting you know,
" This is why you can't let go!"
The world is waiting, children, family and all,
Open your eyes, Bryan, please don't stall.

Prayer is the only way!
Today is going to be a good day!

I am also praying for Bryan in the hopes that he makes a great recovery and will be able to see another game before the season is gone.

Love and Prayers to you...

Dear Heavenly Father,
I lift to You Bryan Stow. You know him; You know all about him and all of his needs at present. You know what brought him to this place, and You know the way out for him. I pray that as he is in this coma you would speak Your blessing to his mind, heart and spirit. I pray that You, being the God of all comfort, would send Your comfort and compassion to Bryan and his family. I pray that You would enter into his hospital room and fill it with blessed assurance; not just for Bryan, but for each and every person who enters into the room. I pray over the Doctors and Nurses, for the whole medical staff dealing with Bryan's case, that You would bestow knowledge and wisdom to each one, so that they can carry out the healing that impart to Bryan. I pray that You would let Your presence be known to all of those who must be feeling so sad for their relative, perhaps confused and angry - to these send Your peace - replace cursing with blessing. I pray that Your presence would go to each one, and offer Your Peace, Your Lovingkindness, and the testimony of Your awesome ability to heal and restore that which has become broken. Show us a miracle in Bryan, Dear Father. Give each of us the faith to continue praying for Bryan. Thank You, for keeping Bryan alive, and thank You for the healing to come!
In Your name,

Red Sox Fans in Support of Bryan Stow is still growing on FB, and so is the support for Bryan!! I went to the Angels game in Anaheim as a Red Sox fan, and had a great time. My thoughts were with Bryan of course, as I walked in and out of the stadium, and wished he had been afforded that same hospitality.....
Tuesday, May 3, 2011 4:53 PM
Was just at Safeway on Morrisey Blvd. in Santa Cruz, and 2 guys were asking for $12.00 donation for Bryan Stow, and you got a Golds gym membership! Is this legit? They were pretty RUDE, so I didn't think it was for real. If it's a scam, SHAME on Golds Gym.

I read about what happened to Bryan in the news thus I searched to find this website. Why would I do that one may ask as I am a stranger. I'm really not a stranger. None of us are strangers, we are simply friendships waiting to happen. I'm a Social Worker in the Yukon Territory, Canada. I get to see first hand the work that is done by first responders, EMS (Emergency Medical Services). To work as a EMS responder requires one to be empathetic to the human condition as they provide service to the disenfranchised, the homeless, people that many will walk away from. It takes courage to do such work, working under difficult and stressful circumstances. A support system such as family, friends, collegues and community who value such people as Bryan is important in his revovery. I wish for Bryan to recover in his own time and in his own way inknowing that someone in the Yukon is keeping him in their prayers and thoughts. Peace. Bonnie

Dear Stowe family,

As a former ER nurse I have spent many hours trading patients with EMT's. First responders are close to my heart for other reasons as well. So I have been thinking of your son every day since the day he was senselessly assaulted. I can only imagine how difficult this has been. I know Bryan is a very good person. And it is our mother's very often who teach us through their behavior to be honorable, to help people instead of hurting them. So with this thought in mind, Happy Mother's Day to a mother who is going through what no mother should have to endure. I hope with all my heart that Bryan can regain his health! I will give my emotional support as long as is needed. I have seen many amazing things happen in the emergency room; it can happen in the ICU as well. Take good care of yourselves- especially Ann! my best, Jennifer (San Francisco)

Prayers and love for Bryan and the Stow family from Philadelphia. I've been heartbroken about this tragedy since I heard about it on Opening Day. America's Pastime was never meant to be like this. As I sit hear with tears in my eyes, I pray to God for healing for Bryan. I'm so glad the family has had so much support - what a blessing to see so many fundraisers held in his honor! I hope a legacy that can come from this ugly tragedy will be the mindset that it's okay to support whatever team you like - wherever you are. If it weren't for competitors, there would be no league and sports would collapse. We need all teams to have a loyal fan base so that we can all enjoy competitive sports at all levels. Blessings to the Stow family...

Bryan - we have not forgotten you! My children and I pray for you EVERY DAY! God Bless you and your family.

Where is the Love?

What's wrong with the world mama?
People livin' like they ain't got no mamas
I think the whole world's addicted to the drama
Only attracted to things that'll bring the trauma

Overseas, yeah, we tryin' to stop terrorism
But we still got terrorists here livin'
In the U.S.A., the big C.I.A
The Bloods and the Crips and the KKK

But, if you only have love for your own race
Then you only leave space to discriminate
And to discriminate only generates hate
And when you hate then you're bound to get irate, yeah

Madness is what you demonstrate
And that's exactly how anger works and operates
Man, you gotta have love just to set it straight
Take control of your mind and meditate, let your soul gravitate to the love, y'all

People killin', people dyin
Children hurtin', you hear them cryin'?
Can you pratcie what your preach?
And would you turn the other cheek?

Father, Father, Father help us
Send us some guidance from above
'Cause people got me, got me questionin'
Where is the love?

Tonight is the first I have heard of this story. It is beyond heartbreaking because I am a mother but also because I am a paramedic in Tulsa, OK. Although there are thousands of us, we are a unique people (only medics can remain empathetic and jaded at the same time, lol) and whether I've ever met Bryan or not, it still feels like family!

Please know that Bryan will remain in my thoughts and prayers!

I also wanted to send positive thoughts to you all and to Brian. From what I have read, Brian sounds like a tremendous person, with an incredible heart and fighting spirit. I know its those traits that keep you hopeful and rightly so. Please do know that people all over, not just Giants fans, are continuing to think of Brian and pull for Brian. This is not just a "story" that passes by. Please do stay positive and take care.

Tuesday, May 10, 2011 10:20 AM
Dear Stow Family,
I am humbled and in awe of the love that Bryan is receiving from all over the country and the world. He is NOT just a story that goes by the wayside. He is a fighter and with all the many prayers going up for him there is no other ending but his total and complete healing. He was put here to serve and help others and I believe that he will be back doing just that! Stay strong and positive. "Call those things that are not as though they were". Continue to speak healing to him. I'll do my part in keeping Bryan and your family in my daily thoughts and prayers. With much love and affection! Can't wait for the day!!

My heart goes out to you and your family. I live in LA, I used to be a Dodger fan. I know its not the teams fault but that was too terrible of an incident to be able to ever say I represent the LA Dodgers. I also know how it feels to have someone you love in a coma. I want you know there is hope and God does give us miracles...keep to you and your family.

I believe in miracles and in the power of prayer. The Lord will answer your prayers. Even in the darkest of hours we are never alone. I will continue to pray for you and Bryan and your entire family and his children. Do not lose faith!

Dear Bryan, Family & Friends,
I was in a major traffic accident as a child and suffered a serious head injury. My parents were told by doctors that they should have a priest come and give me my last prayers. They said if I survived I would be a vegetable. I woke up from my coma six and a half weeks later. They were wrong, and, that was 47 years ago. Technology for head injuries has come a long way since 1964. Hang in there Bryan I know you will wake up soon. My prayers are with you and your family……..

Dear Bryan and Family,
I attend Crossroads Christian Church in Corona, CA - not too far from where you are now. Just a few weeks ago, they shared the story of a young man in our church who sustained a really bad brain injury while snow skiing and a miracle did happen... his brain did slowly recover and he and his wife came on stage to share their story. It was inspirational to me, especially the fact that his loved ones never left his side, and never gave up hope. I know God has a plan for you and I pray for complete healing. I pray for a miracle. I will keep you and your family in my prayers, especially your mom. She loves you so much. It is hard to believe that Jesus loves you even more than that. "Jesus, I pray you keep your hand upon this family." God bless you all.

Good morning Bryan,
How very blessed you are to have such a loving family that won't give up. I pray strength to the whole Stow family and that they continue to be positive and believe in your full recovery. "Speak those things that are not as though they were". When you wake and rise up you'll hear the angels in heaven and the thousands praying for you shouting with joy at your return to us. Can't wait until that day!!! Never forgotten and loved.

I first met Bryan when I worked at World Gym in Scotts Valley. At first I was like "who is this guy with the giant mullet?" But it didn't take long for us to become friends and then later in 2000 we started working together at Scotts Valley Fire as paid call firefighters. What I like the most is that Bryan is the kind of guy that would literally give the shirt off his back to help someone out, even a complete stranger. Like Bryan, I am facing a major fight. Back in November I was hit head on by a drunk driver and nearly died. Right now I'm writing this from my hospital bed. I just had what was hopefully my last major surgery fixing my leg and allowing me to return to work as a firefighter paramedic. My point is that despite what people may think, what doctors may say we must never give up hope. You can bet that Bryan hasn't given up and I truly do believe that Bryan will pull through this. Part of the reason is because of all of the positiveness that people here are putting out. Believe me, your thoughts, prayers, and encouragement is better than any medicine out there. Stay strong Bryan. I look forward to having a beer with you down at Malones soon.

What great news that Bryan can be transferred to San Francisco! I am sure it will be incredibly hard to say goodbye to those angels that have been treated him in LA, but I am sure there will be even more angels in SF! I will keep Bryan and his entire family in my thoughts as yet another chapter in this "journey" is written. NEVER GIVE UP Stow family and know that we are still here right by your sides.

I would just like to say that Bryan and your family have not been far from my thoughts and prayers ever since this horrible thing happen to him. I also would like to say, NEVER give up hope, I know from experience. My son Noah was in a horrific automobile accident (it will be 8 years this June 12th) and he was pronounced dead at the scene but was brought back to life by a paramedic that detected a faint heartbeat. He suffered a tramatic brain injury and was given a very slim chance of survival. I remember the surgeon telling us to make funeral arrangements. Long story short, he was in a coma 5 1/2 months, had a shunt put in for fluid around his brain, was in the hospital for a year and a half. During the 5 1/2 months, I too looked for any sign of brain activity, movement, etc. and didn't see any. Another doctor told us, he may never come out of his vegetative state and if he did, he may not be the same person we knew. Well, he did come out of it, had to learn how to do everthing all over again. It was another year and a half of recovery at home, but today, even though he is wheelchair bound, he IS the same person we knew before (just a little short term memory problem) and also the most positive and loving human being. The saying that got me through this ordeal was shared by a nurse and thats "As long as there's breath, there's life". One more thing that got me through (as a mother) was keeping a daily journal. Miracles can happen because we witnessed one ourselves. Hang in there!

My family and I wish Bryan all our best. I have been a Dodger fan for over 60 years and the animals that did this are not Dodger fans or even baseball fans. All we can do is pray now for Bryan's full recovery and give a donation to help defray the medical costs. We hope the gangsters are caught and punished to the fullest extent of the law but above all we hope Bryan recovers very soon...

My husband works in the EMS field, and they are one big family. When something like this happens, it does not affect one person, but the whole family. Bryan, god bless you and your entire family.

I read your updates and wonder why doesn't that women who drove those thugs away turn them in...Fear for her safety....what must that 10 yr boy think. It must have been frightening for him to see that attack, or is it a scene that he has seen before. I pray for Bryan and his family but most of all I pray that someone turns them in.
If we can find Osama Bin Laden we should be able to find these gang bangers.

Someone please turn them in, they must of bragged about it because that's what they do....cowards..

First off i am so unbelievable sorry for what happened to Brian.Secound i am beside myself that no one has turned in these scumbags.There had to be dozens if not a hundred or more that witnessed what happened to Brian.Even if you were too scared to do something(by the way your a coward)then pull out your phone and get these waste of a tree scumbags on film.Brian dedicated his life to saving others.America wake up.He is a hero in real life.(Literary he is superman) he has saved lives.How many of us reading this could say the same?The scum that beat him rely on that same man to save them.If they got shot tomorrow that EMT(Brian Stow)would have been there to save them.Anyone that knows who did this to Brian Stow.Should hope they never need a EMT.YOU never know when karma may be back to get you. You low lifes that took a life would be cryn like a baby if you needed a EMT sadly because of you we have one less in this world. America you win and you destroy and you riot.You lose you and destroy and you riot.Its our pastime .Are children are there.The sports players and the team owners should strike.Of coures i know this will not happen.God forbid a millionaire or billionaire lose money. I have seizours and i also am a victim of violence.Shame on the thugs and the people who seen and did nothing.One day no matter what your religoin is you will meet your maker.Stow family you will always be in my prayers.My heart goes out to his children,family,and friends...SENSELESS!!! I am a 5F3inT and a 125lbs 33 year woman.I would have risked my own safety to protect him.Its the right thing to do!!! Brian may god be with you and your family!

A man came OUT OF his COMA w/this Treatment!! - "60 Minutes" video

I IMPLORE anyone who can get this link to Bryan's family to PLEASE HELP !!

This "60 Minutes" video shows how one family fought to get a simple, NON-RISKY treatment to their loved one who was in a COMA, but the doctors wouldn't let them try it.

They finally WON and they were allowed to do the treatment, and it WORKED!!! He came OUT OF THE COMA!

Dear Bryan. You obviously are a man that is blessed with, and surrounded with, tremendous love and prayer. The day you awaken, what a day that will be! Wait till you see how many lives you have touched! I don't know why this tragedy has befallen you and your family, only God has that answer. We never know what each day will bring us, but we must accept all that comes, forge ahead, and keep faith. Stay strong Bryan, there is still work left for you to do. You have a multitude of family, friends, and folks you haven't even met, waiting for you. God bless you dear Bryan, and when you are ready, we will be here...
The beatitudes are found at Matthew 5: 3-12

Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are they who mourn,
for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the meek,
for they shall possess the earth.

Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for justice,
for they shall be satisfied.

Blessed are the merciful,
for they shall obtain mercy.

Blessed are the pure of heart,
for they shall see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they shall be called sons of God.

Blessed are they who suffer persecution for justice sake,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

With prayers,

Thoughts and prayers to Bryan and his family. In November 1999 my husband fell off a roof and fractured his scull. We didn't know if he would survive..he did. It was a miracle, they do happen, and I pray it will happen for Bryan. I also pray those thugs are caught and punished.

As a mother, I am reading this and can't help but be moved with tears in my eyes. Your family is so lucky to have this incredible man in your lives, a man who dedicates his life to saving others. It's not fair. My young son was once harrassed for wearing an old Cubs jersey with the name of a player no longer on the team. I shot back a comment to these jerks and now realize that this could have happened to us. What kind of world do we live in? On the other hand, look how this brings out the absolute best in us, people who live thousands of miles away and sit at their computers caring and praying for Bryan. I know that I, for one, will try to be a better person, kinder, less annoyed by petty little things, and grateful my family is ok. Even tho my husband has been out of work for over two years, I'm planning on contributing, keeping the Stow family in my prayers and am urging those reading this to do the same. Miracles happen- put out positive thoughts and anything can happen. Do it for Bryan.

I am deeply saddened at what has happened to Bryan. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. I am from Michigan and just read the story about Bryan on the internet and wanted to share a story about my good friend. He was in a crotch rocket accident about 3 years and and was thrown into a ravine and not found for about 3 hours. He was unresponsive for about a day and had fluid on his brain and had some internal bleeding. After he had sugery to fix the internal bleeding they put him into an induced coma and also put in something to drain the fluid and it was touch and go for about 2 months then one day he just opened his eyes and he remembed everything and everyone that was there. We thought that we were going to lose and good friend but he pulled through and it will be 3 years in July since he was released from the hospital and he has made a complete recovery! Don't EVER stop believing! Don't EVER lose hope!

Read aloud to Brian, and waht God work!
Healing Prayer
I declare today that death and life are in the power of my tongue and I use my tongue to produce the life of God in our bodies, according to your word in Proverbs 18:21. Our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit, and we glorify God in them by walking in divine healing and divine health In agreement with Corinthians 6:19. According to Romans 8:11, the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead lives in us, and gives life to our mortal bodies. We realize that we will be given an immortal body when the Lord returns, but in the meantime we receive the Life of God in my mortal body! Jesus Himself was pierced for our transgressions, crushed for our iniquities, the chastening for our well-being fell upon Him and with His stripes we are healed ask stated in Isaiah 53:5.
Through the cross of Jesus, the Lord has removed all sickness from us; He will not allow any of the harmful diseases of Egypt to be upon us, according to Deuteronomy 7:15; and according to Exodus 15:26 He is our Healer. No curse of sickness and disease can dwell in our bodies or in our life, because according to Galatians 3:13 and 14, Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us. For cursed is one who hangs on a tree; therefore, the blessing of Abraham comes to us now in Jesus' name! According to Proverbs 26:2, a curse without cause cannot alight. There is no cause for a curse to light in our life, since Christ redeemed us, and became that curse for us; therefore, we have divine healing and divine health in my body. The Lord has sent His word and healed us and delivered us from destruction as shown in Psalms 107:20. We are free from every sickness, disease, and calamity that would try to affect our bodies and our health.
We bless the Lord with all that is in us and we forget none of His benefits. He pardons all our iniquities and heals all our diseases, according to Psalm 103:1-3. In fact, they are not our diseases anymore! We are healed by the stripes of Jesus as it is written in Isaiah 53:5. We will not take into our bodies a deadly or debilitating disease. For no evil can come near our dwelling place, nor can any plague come near our tents, for he will give his Angels (especial) charge over us to accompany, and defend and preserve us in all our ways (of obedience and service. They shall bear us up on their hands, lest we dash our foot against a stone, so says the word of God in Psalm 91:10. Sickness and disease are evil and, therefore, they cannot come near my dwelling place. Romans 12:1 says, our bodies are our dwelling place. It is an instrument that we present to God as a living sacrifice. Our spirits dwell in our bodies and the Holy Spirit dwells in our bodies. We have the life of God in us. We speak to our bodies now in the name of Jesus, and we command it to come in line and stay in line with the Word of God.
I declare that we have divine health from the top of our head to the soles of our feet, and we refuse to accept so much as a cold in our bodies. Every germ, bacteria and virus of sickness must die right now in the name of Jesus.
When sickness even gets near our body, it flees. The wicked flee when no one is pursuing and sickness is wicked according to Proverbs 28:1, It flees from our body. We submit to God, resist the devil and he (and all that he authored) must flee. Now, I declare that Jesus went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed of the devil. He healed every manner of sickness and every manner of disease according to Acts 10:38. According to Matthew 4:23 and 24, Jesus went about teaching, preaching, and healing. And the news about Him went out into all Syria, and they brought to Him all who were ill, taken with various diseases and pains, demoniacs, epileptics, paralytics, and He healed them all. According to Matthew 8:16, when evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon possessed; and He cast out the spirits with a Word, and healed all who were ill; in order that what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, saying, "He Himself took away our infirmities and carried away our diseases!"
Now, if Jesus did all those things in Matthew then He still does them today, because He is the same yesterday, today and forever, according to Hebrews 13:8. He is no respecter of persons. If He healed them all yesterday, He has to heal them all today! In fact, according to John 14:13, Matthew 18:19 and John 15:7, He said if we ask anything in His name, He will do it, that if two agreed about anything they ask, the Father will do it, and that if we abide in Him and His Words abide in us, we can ask anything we wish and it will be done. Therefore, I ask for supernatural healing and health to come upon us, and overtake our very physical and emotional life in every way in the name of Jesus. I thank God that we have received His supernatural health in our bodies. It is a fact that are healed by the stripes of Jesus through the covenant blood of Jesus, and we refuse to doubt for one second that we are what God says we are--healed. (Isaiah 53:5; I Peter 2:24)
According to Mark 11:23-24, We can say to the mountain to be removed and it must obey us; therefore, I speak to every symptom of sickness and pain in our bodies, and I command it to be removed and cast into the sea. I do not doubt, but I believe that those things which I say are granted to us in the name of Jesus! According to Mark 16:15 these signs follow them that believe, I cast out demons in the name of Jesus, I speak in new tongues, if we drink any deadly poison or am attacked by a serpent, it shall not harm us. And I can lay hands on the sick and they shall fully recover. I declare full recovery over all our bodies and I exercise the authority that Jesus gave me in Luke 10:19 when He said, "Behold I give you authority to trample upon serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy (which includes sickness, disease, and infirmity) and nothing shall by any means injure you." Therefore, nothing shall by any means injure, harm or defeat us.
I give attention to the Word of God. I incline my ear to His sayings. I do not let them depart from my sight. I keep them in the midst of my heart. For they are life to me and health and healing to all our whole bodies
(Proverbs 4:20-22)! Now, I declare that our immune systems are strong; that faith in the Word of God is our shield and no sickness or disease can live in our blood-bought, faith-fought, bodies in the name of Jesus Christ ( the anointed one)..
1 John 5: 14, 15 says, Now this is the confidence that we have in him, that if we ask anything according to his will, He (God) hears us. And if we know that he hears us, whatever we ask, we know we have the petitions that we ask.
Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, To God our Savior, who alone is wise, be Glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever, Amen.

Never give up! It is so easy to feel defeated, but if there is ever a time to be stubborn and hard headed Bryan, this is that time! I had a stroke in 2006, when I was 21 and was told I would never walk or talk again. After three neurosurgeons told me they would not (or could not) perform the brain surgery to remove a cavernous angioma (malformation of blood vessels) from my brainstem I found one that was willing. A successful brain surgery and years of intense rehabilitation and I have made a full recovery. Healing can take days or years. What matters is that you perservere. You have overwhelming support from friends, family, and strangers alike, and I have absolute faith that you will overcome this obstacle, and become an even more amazing paramedic... One able to relate to patients on a level so many cannot. As a baseball fan, you should look up Ryan Westmoreland (he was a top pitching prospect for the Red Sox) and underwent major brain surgery last year and is still making leaps in bounds in his recovery. I will follow your updates and be sending thoughts and prayers your way from Texas.
Friday, May 13, 2011 11:10 AM
I just read Bryan's story and my heart aches for him and his loved ones. I am so sorry that an event that was meant to entertain could be used as an excuse for some wretched beings to exhibit their violence against someone they did not even know. I hope for the sake of others that these people are caught before they find another random excuse to harm someone else. My prayers are with you Bryan and with your family. I believe in miracles and I will pray that you will be a receiver of God's most blessed miracles.

To Bryan and his sweet family,
Please call it forth as though it were.
Picture Bryan snapping out of this and giving some off hand remark as he lies in his bed. Shocking all of you to your toes.
That's what happened to me when I had a brain aneurysm in 2003. I had 3 major brain surgeries and a shunt placed in my brain. By the Grace of God and a sweet family like the one you have, I am living proof Bryan can also lead a normal life.
I remember hearing my sweet husband on the phone talking to the insurance company about sending a check or some such thing. Now, you would have to know my Sweetie. He never dealt with things like that, because he had me. I overheard him and I sat up in my hospital bed and said, "Sweetie, tell them I will deal with that shit when I get home".
That was the first words I said to my husband.
He just started crying. I didn't realize at that point that I had been in a coma and no one knew if I were going to make it or be "normal" if I did come out of it.
Here I am, 8 years later, with everything restored. It probably took about 4 months after I got out of the hospital in 2003 to be back to "normal". I use that term in quotes because people in my family say there's some doubt about that. LOL!
The shunt was removed. The Blessings bestowed on me and my family by God, have been incredible. I was able to go to my baby girl's high school graduation. Shaved head and all.
Don't immediately hand Bryan a mirror when he wakes up. Yeeks.
But seriously folks, life's been good.
I'd enclose pictures of that time with me and my 2 daughters but I do not want them posted on you tube or something. After all, I'm still vain.

Love to you all, and Blessings from God, and a healing for Bryan, the likes of which you could never imagine.

For Bryan, the Stow family, and all of Bryan's loved ones,
As so many have expressed in the comments left here, I am humbled by this senseless act, and I am left with so many more questions than answers. Yet I am extremely inspired by the shining beacon of your example -- all of the love, strength, and hope that all of you reveal in your lives day by day as Bryan's struggle continues. He has a support network that most of us hope to have should we suffer such incredible misfortune. I will share your story with others around me and pray for all of you daily throughout this episode in your lives. In the meantime, I offer this prayer for Trust in God

O God, Our Lord,
when all is darkness
and we feel our weakness and helplessness,
give us the sense of Your presence,
Your love, and Your strength.
Help us to have perfect trust
in Your protecting love
and strengthening power,
so that nothing may frighten or worry us,
for, living close to You,
we shall see Your hand,
Your purpose, Your will through all things.

My husband suffered a TBI on Christmas Eve this past December while skking. He was in critical condition and wasn't expected to survive. He had a 6mm brain shift from the trauma. The trauma was on the left side of the head in the temporal region. This is where language is interpreted. He was on a ventilator and he wasn't responding to painful stimuli, he wasn't opening his eyes, he wasn't blinking. All his movements were unintentional. He didn't answer and when we opened his eyes, noone was there. I , along with my family kept at his bedside talking, laughing, holding his hand and telling him stories of how much his little girls needed their Dad. He was no spring chicken either. 58 years old with a TBI. They told me when he did wake up they weren't sure if he would be able to speak, or understand language. Then one day, when his brain was good and ready, he opened his eyes. His speech was slow and incomprehensible. He didn't know what a pen was or a cell phone. He didn't know his kids names. I was devastated but I was so glad he woke up that I didn't care how he was as long as I got him back. We were in another state on vacation when this happened and once he was stable I was able to bring him closer to home in the ICU. So we came home and he was in the hospital for one month and had PT, OT, ST. It took 6 weeks for him to completely recover. He is back to himself, normal in every way. When I Felt there was no hope I clung on to my stong faith and belief he would be just fine. He was otherwise healthy like your son is. Make sure they get him out of bed, make sure he gets PT and OT and keep talking to him. Keep stimulating him and please don't ever give up hope !

I have been a HUGE Giants fan all of my life and this story of Bryan being injured in LA I have been following religiously since the horrific event happened. I am so sorry that your family is going through the horrible time. My thoughts and constant prayers are with your family.

Today's news of him finally getting to come back up north is truly a blessing. I pray that each and everyday, he has a new blessing bestowed upon him. He will be back someday, the power of prayer is amazing!

God Bless you all.

I wish I could sent money. I will pray as much as I can remember for Bryan to make a full recovery. The world needs more kindhearted people like him who really likes to help people. My prayers are with you. Don't worry God will take care of everything, just remember God lets no-one get away with harming his children.

This is the first I've heard of Bryan and what transpired after that game. I will keep him and his family in my thoughts and prayers. I think what you're doing, regarding keeping things positive at the bedside, is the right thing. Remember, his senses, such as sight, taste, touch, (smell) are not being used so I'm pretty sure his hearing is very acute. Read to him, hold his hand and tell him how very much you love him!

Bryan, I don't know you but I want you to know that I am deeply touched by your story and I am praying for your full recovery. It makes me sick to read what these horrible people did to you! Don't worry, good old Karma will come back and get them! As for you, from what I have been reading it seems you are a wonderful man with a great big heart. So I say to you, Fight, fight hard and come back to your family, friends and to all the people that you have touched their lives. The world needs more wonderful people like you Bryan! For Bryan's familly, my heart goes out to each and every one of you and I wish you strength, hope and love. The road ahead will be long but never give up hope, stay strong, your love will guide you through this dark time. God Bless all of you! Bryan, you can knock this one out of the park! Keep opening those beautiful eyes.

I have been following this story. I can only say fight, fight and fight. You need to have positive thinking and fight from within to wake up and get better. God bless you and give you the strength to take the skills you learned as a EMT and use them on yourself now... God bless your family and give them the strength they need to help you get through this. I loved reading about the postive thinking, no tears, all smiles and music and reading to you. Sounds like you have the best family ever, so please wake up and open those eyes so that they can have you back. Your kids need you, so fight hard, you can do this.

I am a very proud Dodger fan. I was at opening day. But I brought Giant fans with me to enjoy the game as well. Yeah we yelled back and forth at each other saying "you suck" and "no you suck" but it was all fun and games. I have seen others take it too far and if I am around I tell them to knock it off. I just wish more fans would have stood up and helped.

I hope and pray they catch the ass holes who did this to you Bryan! You didn't deserve this! God is watching over you and your family! I always have you in my prayers.

Shalom from Jerusalem. I have followed this story since the beginning & have kept you in my prayers. To see how the Lord has sent many people into your life during this difficult time shows me how much He loves you and your family and is Sovereign over the situation. I believe you could write a book about this one day and it will inspire many people.

My thoughts and prayers go out to you today as you continue your journey home. I have been following Bryan's progress since this selfless act happened and my faith tells me that he is a true fighter and is going to come through this. He is so lucky to have such a wonderful family. God is with you all and he will give you the strength to get through this journey. I say journey, because I believe that a journey is defined as strength, hope, and healing. With the help of God and all of you staying positive, will help Bryan get through this and have a full recovery. I will continue the power of prayer! Much love to you all..xoxoxo

Hi my name is Raul, i'am not a friend of Bryan or your family, but it hurts my heart to know what happened to this man and your family. My prayers will be with Bryan for his full recovery. I want to share a prayer with you:

Lord Jesus, I come before you just as I am. I am sorry for my sins. I repent of my sins, please forgive me. In your name I forgive all others for what they have done against me. I renounce satan, the evil spirits and all their works. I give you my entire self, Lord Jesus, now and forever. I invite you into my life, Jesus. I accept you as my Lord, God and Saviour. Heal me, change me, strengthen me in body, soul and spirit.

Come, Lord Jesus, cover me with your precious blood, and fill me with your Holy Spirit. I Love You, Lord Jesus. I Praise You, Jesus. I Thank You, Jesus. I shall follow you every day of my life. Amen.

Mary, my mother, Queen of Peace, St. Peregrine, the cancer saint, all you Angels and Saints, please help me. Amen.

Say this faithfully to Bryan and with the help of God he wil come through. This prayer is said by Father Peter Mary Rookey he is 94 years old and can pray for Bryan over the phone his number is as follows. 708-748-6279

I have called Father Rookey several times for prayer for myself. If you believe in God everything is possible. I'm a Father of two kids just like Bryan. Please come together and love one another through this hard time. Be brave and we will pray for Bryan's recovery take care and God bless you all.

I am happy to read that you are making some progress, though! That is so amazing! :) I am hoping that you make a miraculous recovery! You need to pull through this and show those losers they can't keep you down. They don't get to win. They will get what they deserve, I know it! Hang in there, buddy!!! Maybe I will see you in Santa Cruz at some point! :) GoOoOo Giants!!!! All my love~Tara~

In brief because of time we, myself, my aunt & my companion and "guardian angel" who happens to be 88 years young would like to know if you would give us permission to pray for Bryan in person at the hospital tomorrow May 15, 2011. We are hoping for a miracle if planning to leave by Monday as what I hear in news.

Please call us as soon as possible to prepare for the trip from the OC. at 714-631-1404

Good morning Bryan! I have watched your story since the first day and have been praying for you and your family to ask the Almighty and Loving God to bring you back to your family and loved ones in His time.

Compassionate and Almighty God, through whom nothing is impossible and all things are known, consider your child Bryan Stow, and give back to him the fullness of life and living You so lovingly gave to him at his creation. Make for him dear Lord, an easy path back to his family and loved ones, in Your time dear Lord, send Your Angels to guide him back, and surround him in his time of healing. I ask you for a miracle dear Lord. For this child of yours and his family who need You.

This I pray in Your name.

I live in Orange County and was horrified that this happened anywhere in Southern California. I hope that he'll be able to return here in triumph and see that most of us are good, kind and loving people. Seeing his photos makes me want to weep, he looks so happy. I'm praying that once he is closer to his friends and family, he'll complete his journey all the way back to you. Orange County is pulling for him!!

As a born and raised member of the Los Angeles community, I apologize for the suffering two degenerate men have caused you during your visit here to L.A.

Chili's restaurant had a one night fundraiser and I emailed the information to everyone I knew and also printed out a stack of copies so that people who were in the restaurant that did not know about it, did when I got there. The restaurant was especially busy that night because of you, so know that many people are rooting for your recovery.

Hi Bryan,
I was so happy to hear that you are opening your eyes and have some movement of your arms and legs. I was sad that you had to leave L.A. without those "THUGS" being caught. Everyday I wake up hoping to hear they are caught. I watched the news as you left the hospital and then again later when your private jet took off for S.F. I'm sure with the great care you'll get in S.F. someday you'll be able to attend another Dodger/Giant game without the fear of that terrible night. May God keep you close and wishing for a speedy recovery.

Dear Bryan & Family,
I'm happy to have found this website to read the updates on how you are doing. My family will keep you in our prayers for your swift recovery. May you and your family find comfort and peace through our Lord as you continue on this journey of recovering from your injuries. So happy to hear you are returning close to your home and family. We had a son Bryan as well, and he worked for AMR in Irwindale and then transferred to Riverside. Our hearts were shattered the night of Jan. 2nd of this year when our Bryan passed away. We long for and miss him terribly and although we are so very sorry and saddened to hear of the tragedy that befell you, it touched our hearts to learn that you both share the same name and worked for the same company. Seeing your photos you even remind me a little of our son. He had dark hair like you and was very handsome. I pray that you will soon awaken and see the endless amount of support and love that has been demonstrated to you through so many people. Our Lord is the Great Physician and we will eagerly await to hear of what He has done to bring you back to a full recovery and strength. I can tell you from our families heart that we would not have been able to make it through these last few months without our hope and faith in Christ. May God bless you all and strengthen you daily. Hold on Bryan, a family here in So. CA is joining many others in hoping and praying for all the best for you! Get well soon!

I'm so sorry for what happened. I can't believe the world has come to this, it really makes me sick to my stomach, I am embarrassed as an american and human that something like this can happen. Please GOD or whatever power is out there, be able to wake up and live a good live. I really want to cry that you went to a baseball game and now you and your daughters and family have to deal with this. No words can make this better. I'm just very sorry for you.

When you read all of the thoughts and prayers going out to you and remember this act of violence was from two ugly monsters allow the spirits of all those who are rooting for You flow through your soul. You will awake and you will be-physically whole once more...for this I am sure.

Peace and strength

Good morning Bryan,
I am so glad you and your family had a safe trip "home sweet home." I believe you know that you are finally home and now you can relax and really start your healing. You've made quite an impression on everyone Bryan. In fact, you have a whole new adopted family. Bet you never thought you would have so many brothers and sisters from all over the country. Please know that we are all going to continue to pray and believe for your healing. WE love you Bryan!!! Stow family, please "call those things that are not as though they were!!" Love

I saw on the news last night that Bryan Stow has been moved to a San Francisco Hospital. This is fantastic news, but I think the best news is the doctor that will be taking care of him, Dr. Geoffrey Manly. Eight years ago I had an accident while at a concert at The Warfield in the city. I fell and hit my head on the marble stairs up in the balcony that sent me into a 3 1/2 day coma.
I know Bryan's situation is much more dire but Dr. Manley was the doctor who took care of me and my head.
Dr. Manley is a world renown doctor and I can guarantee you that Bryan is in the best of hands because I am much better now with no symptoms of my traumatic brain injury.

My prayers and wishes are with Bryan and his family.

To Bryan,
My thoughts and prayers are with you. I pray for your full recovery. God is our hope and promise. He is in control and He does perform miracles. We are part of His family and He does love us. Even when we are in serious trouble, we do not need to be afraid, but just trust Him. He is concerned about our daily needs, as well as our problems. He can see the big picture and knows what is best for us. We need to rest in Him, obey Him, and seek His will daily through prayer and reading the scriptures. God looks at our hearts. Our problems can bring us closer to God and heal our hearts so we can reflect His light and love to others.

The Good Lord did a fantastic job driving the ambulance and piloting the plane from LA to San Francisco. And what great help he had with all of your AMR family him the way, and caring for you during the journey. I know it made them feel better, and I am certain you knew they were with you.

Keep your strength and know you are wrapped in love and prayers. The winds from West Texas aren't so gentle today, but they are sending prayers to heaven as well as San Francisco. Gentle vibes-G

Bryan and family,

Continuing to pray for you. My son sustained a traumatic brain injury July 2008. It's a long slow recovery, ongoing, but it does continue to get better. Amazingly, so many blessings can come from a horrific event like this. Just know that with your support and God's love, Bryan will continue to make baby steps in his healing. Try to laugh through your tears. There is wonderful life after T.B.I.

I wish people would stand up more for each other, things like this can be prevented. I wish all the best to you and your family and will stop in and check your progress from time to time. Keep fighting, there are a lot of people out here that you know and that you don't know who love and care about you.

Keep your spirits up even though it's unbelievably hard and remember that he is still with us. Don't let him ever think you've given up or forgotten. Every day you can hold his hand or kiss his cheek is a gift from God.

May God continue to give you the strength and peace of mind to go forward.

God bless you all.

This situation is an example of the violence that is going on in this country over wearing of wrong colors or being the wrong color. You did nothing to bring this on yourself and who ever did this needs to be brought to justice.

I live in Colorado but lived in northern CA for 43 years and the Giants are my team. You are in my prayers brother and a lot of people's prayers across this country. We will not let this go unchecked until these people are brought to justice.

To the Stow Family: My thoughts are with you and best wishes for a full recovery for Bryan. By now I'm sure you have heard from and have seen many messages from other survivors of TBI. The success stories are true because my daughter is a survivor. She is now going through rehab and is improving everyday. After she regained consciousness, she started walking and talking and given time, Bryan will too. Please don't give up hope. Miracles do happen and I am praying that you experience the same success. May God keep you strong and render his blessings to you during this difficult time. Keep fighting Bryan !!!

I'm from the right coast in Western, PA. What was done to Bryan is evil. As a fan of the good in humanity I pray that he makes a complete recovery. Cowards administered this act and I hope they are brought to justice. Try and let go of your anger because it becomes a jail cell. I know words are easily written, but don't let your anger make you another victim of the savage attack. My prayers go out to Bryan and your entire family. I will include you in my prayers.

Best of Wishes for a Speedy Recovery and Rehabilitation, and I hope that the police investigators are able to track down and apprehend the cowardly dirt bags responsible for this crime sooner rather than later, but have no doubt, that they will be caught. Two little punks jumping on against one guy, and then running off like little sissy girls. Their parents and homeboys must be real proud and impressed. Spineless, weak, and gutless dirtbags. That's all that can be said of them.

My prayers are with the whole Stow family! I cannot believe that this happened. What kind of person attacks another for being a Giants fan just because they are a Dodgers fan? That is so horrible! I'm glad that he is closer to home though. I am from Illinois and I am a Cubs fan, and everyone else that I know are Cardinals fans. That doesn't mean that they can just come and beat me up. It's just a game and people need to realize that. I hope that the two men responsible for this brutal and heinous crime are caught and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for what they did to this innocent man! My thoughts and prayers go out to you Bryan and your whole family. I wish you a full recovery! I don't personally know you guys, but I fell like I have known you my whole life with how I am always on here looking at the updates just to see how he is doing. And I LOVE you all that are supporting Bryan and his family! God Bless!!!!!

People like that eventually have to "brag" about what happened and then someone will turn them in its a matter of time. My dad was a police officer and generally that is how people get caught is them wanting people to validate their horrible crimes.

Blessing Bryan with a speedy recovery!! Take Care and keep the updates coming.

My heart goes out to Bryan & his family. This tragic event has left me with a heavy heart. I wept as I first heard of this tragedy. It sickens me to learn just how evil people can be & just how bad our society is becoming. So many senseless crimes happen on a daily basis, but even more so now that our country has hit it's financial bottom & has left so many people in desperate situations. However, there is never an excuse to commit an act of violence against one of our brothers or sisters in Christ......NONE. Especially one that was so unecessary an unprovoked.
My sister was murdered March 17th, 2003 so I do know first hand what all of you are experiencing & feeling. God works miracles & I will continue to pray for your family & for Bryan's miracle to come soon. Much love & respect to all of you.

Your sister in Christ,

I hate to sound cliche and say I am praying for Bryan and his family but it seems to be the only thing that can be done right now. Hopefully Bryan will be able to wake up soon and see how his story has touched the world even here in the swamps of Louisiana where we have our own problems and possibly a natural disaster headed this way at this time we are still praying for Bryan.

I am a sister and a friend. I cannot imagine the pain that dwells in your hearts. Please know that God heals. He makes a way when it seems impossible. We do not know Bryan's fate though we all pray that he makes a full recovery. Lean on the understanding of the Lord as you stand this test in time. I am so very sorry for you pain. Keep talking to Bryan. Hold on to hope. And find comfort in the progress, however small it seems. Kiss his forehead, hold his hand, tell him how much you love him. I don't know that he can hear you...but I don't know that he can't either. I will continue to pray for your family and Bryan. I also pray that they catch those responisble for this travesty of injustice perpetrated against Bryan and you.

Dear Stow family, everyday at work in central Texas, I listen to a LA radio station. When I first heard what happened I was heart sick that people can be so cruel. I pray for a complete recovery for Bryan and for God to give the rest of the family strength to get through this. It's tragic to think that the people who did this has no regard for human life. They will be punished for this crime, if not in this life for sure in the next. God Bless and keep you Bryan and your family.

I am a Dodgers fan and I can never convey to you the disgrace I feel for the actions of these two soulless individuals. I don’t think I speak out of turn when I offer my sincerest apologies and wish you a swift recovery from all Dodger fans. I can't wait to see the day when you beat this, walk out of the hospital, and throw the first pitch at a Dodgers game wearing your SF hat and jersey. :-)

I think the Dodgers should also ante up and help with medical expenses. Stay strong amigo.

The individuals that took part in this horrific attack, are cowards. I do so hope that they are caught and receive appropriate punishment through the justice system.

We will continue praying that God peace will comfort you in these most difficult times. Being a Bay Area sports fan who relocated to So Cal, I am truly believing that the good that will come out o this is that we will come closer together as a people. I have always tried to convey to So Cal the love for all people that is present in the Bay Area and I have to admit, I had to be convicted and tried by the Holy Spirit to learn to appreciate the good in all people. Althoguh this appears to be slanted towards a certein grpoup, I am hoping that it will make everyone look inside and see that there's good and bad in all races, all groups, but that we are all God's people and Bryan and family is paying a heavy priice but we rpay that we will all be better as a result. Trust in the Lord and don't give up! Go Giants!

I have been following this story from day one because it hits home for me and my family. We frequently enjoy going to SF, to watch our favorite b-ball team play and it makes me think how something like this can happen to any body and any family. This cowardly senseless act of violence should never happen to any body and my heart goes out to your family. In a blink of an eye your lives have been changed forever but I am confident justice will be served in this lifetime and the people responsible for this tragedy will be caught and will be brought to justice. I believe this with all my heart, I really do.

God bless you and your family. My family is praying for Bryan's recovery and for healing of your entire family.

I hope that someday the persons responsible for this vicious act are brought to justice and you are there to point the finger and say that's who did it!

May God's blessings be upon you and your family now and in the future. May he also bless the doctors and other medical staff with wisdom to get you thru this.

My prayer to you and your family: Dear Lord my Savior I come to you in humble submission and ask that You touch this man that I do not know but You Lord know all about him, heal his every wound his mind body and soul. I ask that you take control of the situation and show his family that You can do ALL things BUT fail. Nothing is to hard for You to do because you are Lord. This man is needed in his family so I ask You Lord to rebuild him strengthen him like never before. Lord I ask this prayer is your Son Jesus Name Amen. Family Trust and Believe that God Can and Will do the impossible. May He bring peace to you and your family in the midst of the storm. God Bless all of you.

Dear Bryan,

As a father of two myself I want to say that I am praying for your full and absolute recovery. There are no words to describe the anger I feel towards the two cowars that commited this hatefull crime against you. Their day will come, here or in the next life they will be judged. But the important thing is that you recover. My prayers are with your family and all the good people that care for you.

My God Bless you and heal your wounds... From the Massachusetts area.

Hello Stow family,

I'm a fellow Giants fan from NJ and I just wanted to send my love and prayers to you all at this crucial time in Bryan's recovery. (And I say recovery because he WILL recover). I know that this process is hard and I wish I could donate money to help cover his medical bills, but alas I am just not in a good position to do that so I can only offer my humble prayers and thoughts to you all.

Be strong in the Lord and in the power of his might!

My thoughts are with Bryan and his family. This is a senseless cruel act that no one deserves. I agree with the other poster on here that rivalries are supposed to be friendly. From an Angels fan to a Giants fan we love ya Bryan. You have so many people who root for so many different baseball teams who are pulling for ya buddy. Please know we are all keeping you in our thoughts.

I SO wish I would have known Bryan was a Motley Crue fan. I was in Vince Neil's foursome in the Skylar Neil Memorial Golf Tournament in Simi Valley, CA on May 7. If I only knew! Vince is gracious and would have been blown away to know this, and contribute in any way. Motley is on tour in South America right now. Let me know if there is anything I can do. In the meantime, prayers, prayers, prayers. So glad Bryan is home sweet home.

Bryan and Family,

I am so hopeful to get word that you wake up and fully recovery from this senseless injury. I do not believe, in my heart, that your chances are slim and I know that your family does not either. My two and a half year old son had a brain injury days after he was born and had similar symptoms and they prepared us for the worst case scenario. Yes, his injury was not the same, but we waited patiently through the same steps your family is going through now. We never gave up or waivered in our strength and I am so happy to say that my son has overcome all of his injuries. I believe that you can do it, you can fight your way through this and triumph over evil.

Much love and support to you and your family,
Nashville, TN

Dear Stow family,

I am so very sorry that tragedy has happened. It is heart breaking to think what you are all going through and I pray for Bryan's continued healing and for him to get stronger every day. This is truly a tragedy. I watch baseball games in NY and I continually think about how Bryan is doing. I have watched the page and his progression and figured I would send my note of support and let you know that so many people are praying for Bryan!

Keep strong! I look forward to more uplifting progress for Bryan!

God Bless


Now onto my special note for Bryan - Bryan, keep getting strong! You have tons of prayers being said for you around the world. Everyone from near and far thinks of you. God Bless Bryan!

I happen to run across the story of what happened to Bryan one night I couldn't sleep. Maybe I was meant tobecome aware of your family. It's funny that someone I have never met and will probably never meet can touch my heart this much. God has put Bryan on my heart. I offer the greatest gift I can give. The gift of prayer. I pray Bryan is restored to his former self. For the sake of those that love him and most of all for his children. I pray your family be strenghtened by God and will remain strong and supportive. I know the power of prayer and have been blessed throughout my entire life and now I am asking God to bless you all. Pray for healing and he will be healed. God is a miracle worker please allow him to work a miracle for Bryan.

Friday, May 20, 2011 1:48 AM
Dear Stow Family,
I knew Bryan years ago in Duluth School. I was unaware of this terrible tragedy. I want The Stow Family to know my heart is aching for you all I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers and have you all added to our prayer list at Church. I can honestly say I know the hurt and pain and grief you all are going through. Friday October 13, 2006 my 16 year old son was in a tragic car accident as a passenger and lost his life two days later October 15, 2006 with brain injuries. my son was a fighter but couldnt hang on. The good LORD above took him home for a reason. It has been very painful and heart breaking to watch your child in this position. I have FAITH your son/husband/father will pull through. I hurt for any family to go through this. I will continue to follow up and read on his recovery progress and give support to you all. Remember keep FAITH, HOPE and PRAYERS they really do work the man above will bring you all through it, HE IS REAL!. These cowardly no good thugs can't run and hide forever.
Bryan has a lot of support, very caring special friends, family and others who doesn't even know him. That is amazing!
God Bless you all!
Many thoughts and prayers go out to you all

Good morning!!

Stow Family, I know that Bryan is opening his eyes and having other slight movements because he is fighting his way back to you.

Bryan, Keep fighting your way back! Big hug and kiss to you.

I heard, 'I Won't Let Go', by Rascal Flatts this morning and you and your family immediately came to mind. Keep your faith and know that so many of us are here for you and won't let go!

It's like a storm
That cuts a path
It breaks your will
It feels like that
You think you're lost
But you're not lost on your own,
You're not alone

I will stand by you,
I will help you through
When you've done all you can do
and you can't cope
I will dry your eyes,
I will fight your fight
I will hold you tight
and I won't let go

It hurts my heart to see you cry
I know its dark this part of life
Oh it find us all and we're to small
to stop the rain
Oh but when it rains

I will stand by you,
I will help you through
When you've done all you can do
and you can't cope
I will dry your eyes,
I will fight your fight
I will hold you tight
and I won't let you fall

Don't be afraid to fall
I'm right here to catch you
I won't let you down
It won't get you down
You're gonna make it
I know you can make it

Cause I will stand by you,
I will help you through
When you've done all you can do
and you can't cope
I will dry your eyes,
I will fight your fight
I will hold you tight
and I won't let go

Oh I'm gonna hold you
and I won't let go
Won't let you go
No I won't

God, his Angels, and all of your supporters will help you fight your fight. My love and prayers to you all.

It goes without saying that my thoughts and prayers are with you. As a fellow sports fan I have been to many arenas around the country and never had any problems, just some spirited cheering between fellow fans of opposite teams.

It was a relief today to see that finally an arrest had been made. I hope that this coward will turn in the other two cowards so that justice can be served on all of then. And I hope that justice is swift and severe.

All the best and I am hopeful for a full recovery for you!!!

On the behalf of my family and myself, I hope that Bryan makes a full recovery, and for all the world to see it.
Bryan Stow is a true hero. The Stow family has been steadfast in their love and support for Bryan, and to me, it proves that FAMILY IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF OUR WAY OF LIFE...and no one, not gang members or criminals who commit heinous crimes can take that away.
May God truly Bless Bryan and his family...

Additionally, had I been at Dodger Stadium on that day, I would have helped Bryan out. It's troubling when I hear about people standing idly by as a defenseless man is attacked. Apparently there were many peole simply watching and doing nothing. I say, to those that did nothing and watched, one day, you'll be in need, and others will simply watch and do nothing.
My friends...true love is about seeing a man "broken..on the ground and saying, brother let me help you up". Man up...woman courageous and not foolish or cowardly.
Bryan, we all know you're making a Grand come-back!
God bless

To Bryans Family,

I am an RN and my father suffered a massive brain bleed, they gave him less than 30% chance to live. Well, he lived and is back at work an d still improves every year and he is was 51 when that happened and now is 64! God can and does perform miracles. My close friend suffered a brain injury on concrewte when a horse fell with her. She is now riding and training horses again. She will tell you the road is long but there is daylight! She has started a charity for the TBI. It is called REBIRTH. I do know of other TBI recoveries, so hang in there, talk, talk and talk to Bryan everyday! Read the paper, read the Bible, tell him about what is happening evryday, weather, your life, just talk. I know after 38n days in ICU it doesn't get any easier! Truly will pray for Bryans continued recovery!

I wish Bryan a speedy recovery and commend all of you for your strength to cope through this very difficult time. It takes a very special human being to be in the public services field and Bryan seems like just that. The people that did this to Bryan are not human, they are driven by hate and self loathing and they will have their justice. They are cowards and the people that have been hiding them are not human either and will face their justice as well. Bryan's light is ever shining and hopefully his beautiful spirit will heal these evil people.

I just discovered the link to this site in an MSN update article of the arrest of one of the two attackers. First and foremost, I am glad that Bryan is doing better with the seizures. I cannot fathom what you, as a family, are going through. But know that I join the multitude of loving, caring and praying people for Bryan. I've followed Bryan's tragic story from the beginning. Although I cannot support through monetary means, I can certainly support through prayer. I also want to thank Bryan for his service as an EMT. Sacrificing yourself to help others in need. Secondly, I am glad to know that FINALLY, at least one of the two attackers is now in custody. Although it will never undo what has been done, at least "hopefully" some kind of justice will be served.

Godspeed to Bryan and the Stow family

Dear Bryan:

I am praying for you. I too was assaulted and left for dead. I suffer everyday with my brain injury and i will not lie to you Bryan, it is really, really hard. But you are strong, much stronger than I am or was then, as i was already physically diabled when this happened to me and this TBI (with its continuing seizures or as they say, post traumatic epiplepsy) add more to the mix. What you have Bryan, that I think will be the key to your success against this monster we call TBI, is your family- your parents who are doing all they can to help you every day and your children who are waiting for their daddy and all of the friends who are supporting you. Your fellow EMTs are crazy for you and they are not gonna let you give up. You might not feel lucky right now Bryan, but from one TBI struggler, with no one to help them the way your family does you.. you have a great support team there.

A side note: Please look into Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy. You can youtube its' effects on head injuiries. It may take some months, but it may be a tremendous help. I am just a regular guy/not a doctor, but I believe in its ability to help heal. This may help. Just a suggestion. Thanks for your time and I hope God blesses Mr. Stow and his family!

I hate to know that we live among such evil people capable of such an act. Can't even go to a baseball game without risking your life. No one deserves or should have to go through what Bryan's and his family is/ and has gone through. Its an injustice to humanity, cruel, senseless and just plain baffling. Bryan is still with us for a reason, I believe. I will follow his story. My thoughts are with the family. May you find some peace and justice in all of this.

I pray for Bryan. But I also pray for Bryan's family who has been so faithful and enduring through all of this. Through God it is your strength helping him through this and helping his kids. How wonderful to have so much support. The more prayers, the more God will hear and heal. Amen.

My prayers go out to Bryan, his family and friends. I know God will heal Bryan in his time and will give Bryan, his family and friends the strength and hope as God works in his time. As for anyone bringing up Bryan's past no matter what or how long ago...SHAME on YOU. No one is perfect and everyone has a past, what is important is that Bryan has changed and has better himself to become a person his children, family and friends can look up to and admire. Stay strong in God's love, strength & hope that sustains all of you. God is still in the Miracle business and I'm awaiting the day we can all rejoice when God's answers all the prayers that have been going up. All my prayers love to Bryan, his family and friends.

From the time I first heard about Bryan's story I was absolutely heartbroken. It's such a shame to hear of something so tragic and senseless. I pray that Bryan and his family and friends receive all the strength, love, and support they can through this trying time!

And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast - 1 Peter 5:1

Know I continiue to pray for each of you and that I have NO DOUBT God will heal Bryan. No doubt. So, this week, the folks at our Blake Street Tavern and I are going to roll up our sleeves and begin really working on the First Colorado Stow Family Fundraiser. I'll keep you all posted!

Sending lots of love and prayers from Hawaii. I have been following your story since I stumbled upon it on the net and I was so so happy to hear they caught one of the suspects today. A day doesn't past that I don't think about how you are doing or go to your website and look for updates. God bless you and your family, and I have the utmost confidence that you are going to make a full recovery and you will be be able to attend as many Giants games as you want. God is great and you have touched so many of us--you are a hero to all of us.

Love and Aloha,

Today when we heard the news we told our 5 year old who is a huge supporter of Bryan (when we did BRYAN STOW DAY @ THE HOTDOG SHOPPE he litterally worked clearing tables, walking around asking people if they had donated to get their bracelet's, telling people to call everyone they knew to come down and support) theat one of the guys had been captured, he got the biggest most sincere smile on his face and started tearing. I asked him why he was sad and he said "they are happy tears because now all of the hard work that the world is putting in, and the pain that the Stow's have been going through is going to be ok, because when they get one it is only a short time before they get the other." He says "I talk to god about Bryan everyday and he said it is going to be better he said his kids daddy will be home soon." Just thought I would share the love from our family to yours and remind you that miracles can come in small doses! We continue our fight for you and wear our bracelett's with PRIDE.

May Bryan recover from his severe brain injury and live a happy, healthy life with no disabilities. We ask for prayers of healing for him and the family through these very hard times. We need help to keep our faith. At times I wonder why things happen to such good people, this is one of those times. I pray that Special Angels are there at his bed side watching over him and that of the family & friends to get through this difficult time. I pray for a full recovery so Bryan can be at a Giants Game surrounded by all of "his" fans and supporters, including me. Amen
Monday, May 23, 2011 10:54 AM
Good morning Bryan,
It's a beautiful Monday morning. Heard the good news about one suspect being taken into custody. Not long and they will have the other. BUT, more importantly, is that God is an awesome God and he has his hands on the whole situation and he especially has his loving, healing hands on you at this moment. I just continue to believe that you are completely healed and restored..."call those things that are not as though they were." You are doing an amazing job Bryan! We all love you and your family. Prayers continue to go up!! Love

Just wanted to send my love and prayers. 7 years ago I was in a very bad accident and received severe brain trauma. I was also in a coma for several months and have fully recovered (although I remember nothing of the accident). The brain has amazing plasticity and recovery and I wanted to give you more hope to hold onto. My family went through similar struggles and it turned out well. Good luck and hold strong! Recovery is a long road...

Good morning Stows!

Great news yesterday from LA! The LAPD's hard work and efforts are starting to pay off! It's only a matter of time until justice is served. Although it sickens me that there were so many "friends" in that apartment with him and no one stepped up to do what's right, regardless of the reward; we won't lose sight of the most important justice of all...Bryan's full recovery!!!

Baby steps, one day at a time. God's healing powers are in full swing!!!

We're all by your side; get well Bryan!!!

God bless the Stows!

What a wonderful guy.
There is so much sorrow I feel for Bryan and his family.
However, I am one of those fortunate to have actually met him; this spring in Arizona when we were both headed to a baseball game
We met in the lobby of a motel and he was planning how he could get to a spring training game. Being a fan, I told him I had a car and would be happy to drive him to the game. I drove him that day and the next day we joined up again and drove to the game.
I am from Canada and it came up in our conservation that his family was originally from Canada too. Small world as they say.
Now to realize just how small it can be and how tragedy can touch all of us even when we are far away.
My sorrow is immense but I try to think of the brief time we knew each other and how my wife and I enjoyed his conversation, his company and his insight into life.
He's a great guy.

It's Kristy, Erin's childhood friend from grade school. I didn't realize it was Bryan who was attacked until I saw Ann on the news the other night. I'm so sorry to hear about his condition. Our family will definitely keep him and the entire family in our prayers in hopes that he will have a full recovery very soon. Erin, I would love to hear from you. I will send a card with my info.

Wishing you strength and comfort during this difficult time.

Prayer is so powerful, I know God heard us and will continue too as we pray for Bryan to come back to you....God heard us once before, lets pray he hears us all once again- for Bryan.

First I would like to say that what goes around comes around. You two good for nothings are a waste of space. To the Stowe family I am so disgusted and hurt that this has happened to your family. I have been following Bryans progress since day one. I have to say that I can't believe I was crying when I heard what happened to a perfect stranger. I was so hurt and upset that people can actually do something like this. I am glad that one of the waste of space have been caught and hope the other(s) will be caught as well. You all are in my thoughts and prayers and I hope he wakes up in time to see justice served.

**One more disrespect but man is Bryan HHHOOOTTTTTT! :-)

Dear Stow Family,
I was very relieved to see the news article on Yahoo regarding the recent arrest of one of the suspects. I have been waiting to hear this news with baited breath. I knew eventually someone would have some information and come forward. I hope that the others involved will also be caught shortly. It is also sad to know that the 10-year-old in the getaway car was made to witness such violence -- unfortunately this is exactly how a new generation of kids grow up to be violent. I hope that that child is taken out of his violent home and rehabilitated in a loving home that cares about his well-being and future, so that he won't repeat what he has been shown.

I am so glad that you are able to have brought Bryan home - I'm sure he can hear you tell him that he's closer to home now. I wish you all continued strength, courage and love in grappling with this life-changing event that has happened to you all. It's incomprehensible to me that people are capable of willingly choosing to hurt others so seriously, for no reason. I will never get used to it; I will never be de-sensitized; I will always feel deeply emotional about injustices, but it is heartening to see that there are others who truly care and are just as shocked as I am that this kind of random act of violence happens, and happened to you. I also send lots of love and healing to Bryan's children who should never have had to experience this kind of thing happening to their beloved Daddy.
Much love and caring thoughts to you all,
# Denise Odle

I am still in much prayer for Brian's recovery and for his family. His story has really been painful because this healthy young man has had his life altered because of some senseless violence. But I believe that in God's divine plan that Brian will be alright because despite how much we show our outpouring of love and upset over what happen to him, no one can love Brian like God can and his healing is in God's hands. We may never...ever understand what motivate those guys to brutally beat him, but we do know that God will have the last say so in Brian's recovery and also with those who attacked him.

I have never met any of the Stow family or friends, but I felt compelled to write to you. Ever since this senseless act of violence has occured I have prayed for Bryan and the Stow family every night and will continue to do so. I frequently read the newspaper and check, and now I check this website daily. I keep hoping to hear that he is interacting with his family, or something huge like that. I believe 100% that God has a plan for Bryan and will heal him and use him for a greater purpose. He must be an amazing man because he has gained the hearts of people all over the world. May God Bless him and his family and give them the strength to push forward. I am thankful for the LAPD and I look forward to Bryan saying his first words since the incident. Have faith, pray, and God will provide!!

I truly believe that Bryan will be awake soon and even though his recovery may be a long process, with family and friends by his side, how can it be anything but a positive progression.

Keep your faith and be strong for the long road ahead for WE will all stand by you.

I had a surprise visit from our favorite AMR EMT name Johnny Reyes.

Hello, my name is Stella Cruz and my son Andrew Cajita was hit by a drunk driver in 2008. Johnny came to visit my son at A Grace Sub-acute and we talked about old times of transporting my son back and forth from San Jose to San Francisco UCSF Neurology.

He also told us about your son Bryan Stow, and the deep pain he feels about what happened to his collegue Bryan and how we could possible help with support from our experience with my son's ongoing TBI Treatments. Please visit my son's websites:

Johnny place a Bryan Stow wristband on my son today as a "symbol of brotherhood." If there is anything we can assist with, from our experience in our own journey of healing and recovery, please do not hesitate to contact us. Our prayers are with you. GOD Bless you and your Family. Best regards, Stella Cruz

Medical bills are huge & will continue to be huge for you. If it ends up that those bills get taken care of by the responsiible parties, then Bryan's kids can have the money. Take care :)

The Stow family is going after the people who are responsible for Bryan and making sure this will not happen to anyone else. Keeping that in mind and filing the lawsuit against the Dodgers will be costly for the Stow family emotionally and financially.

I think it was considerate that the family offered to refund the monies because it shows that they care for Bryan’s supporters’ financial situation. News flash: gas is still going up. Shocker. But to twist the family’s good intention and relate the refund offer to Bryan’s attack is unforgivable. I can not believe how some people can blow this nice gesture way out of proportion.

To the Stow Family,
I am letting you know I am support of you and your decision to file a lawsuit. I found myself fuming mad when I was reading facebook posts calling the Stow Family greedy! Cold and insensative. God forbid their family has to go through what you are all going through.
Iam not a Giants fan or a dodgers fan but if this incident happened at my favorite ballclub's park, a lawsuit would be expected and rightfully so.
I have moved from Watsonville to Scotts Valley 2 years ago and to be honest I was expecting a different kind of people, but my naive assumption was wrong, and Im glad to live in this community with wonderful people. With that being said not ever meeting the Stow family, I know what kind of people they are, and being greedy is not one of them.
I stood up for the Stow family and responded back to the facebook stating: If it was true greed,the lawsuit would have been filed before Bryan even got out of his first surgery.
Some individuals will sue for anything and for any amount. But this isnt just anything. Unfortunately Bryan has to be the one to set an example. Fans come out, buy tickets,consessions and merchandise so I don't think its too much to ask club owners to protect us fans from any violence.
I pray for the Stow Family and I know I am not the only waiting for the day Bryan gets to come home to you all.
# Cat
Wednesday, May 25, 2011 7:45 PM
Dear Stow Family,
My thoughts and prayers are with you. I understand what you are going through because my brother was the victim of a very similar violent crime in 2003. He suffered very similar injuries at the hands of a man he'd never met, and the entire thing was unprovoked on my brother's part. The effect that something like that can have on you, the realization that there's evil in the world, the confusion of how someone could possibly inflict such pain on a stranger, and the gut feeling of wishing you were there to help, can be unbearable at times. I hope for a full recovery for Bryan, and I wish your family the best as you try to cope with this senseless tragedy.

Just another day of thinking about you and wishing you well. I'll be in the Bay Area in a few days (my favorite place in the world to be, and i'm a native Angelena) and will send even stronger "close by" positive thoughts and prayers the entire time i'm up there. I'm hoping for you a wonderful day, full of miracles big and small. Grace surrounds you all, and we are all pulling for you.
Thursday, May 26, 2011 1:32 PM
My Thoughts and Prayers go out to Bryan and his Entire Family. Knowing that his Family is there by his side and fighting for him is the best support for him. That Love and Strength will get his through this time of healing. I am sure he feels the warmth that is surrounded by him from Family and Friends. People on the East Coast where I am from are sending many Prayers many miles away to reach out to you. I am from the Philadelphia area and a Phillies Fan and we experienced the same Unimaginable Experience the other year. How another Human Being could do this -- I just cannot understand -- Never will understand. But Please know Your are Loved By Many and Will Keep Praying for your Recovery. God Bless Bryan and his Family. I wish I could do more..or saying something more that would take all the pain and hurt away. Love, Cindy (Suburbs of Philadelphia, PA)

Dear Bryan and Family,

You are in our thoughts and prayers. I hope these criminals are caught and get the justice they deserve. I'm an EMT for AMR in Cheyenne, WY and know how hard our Paramedics and Firefighters work on a daily basis.

I never heard on the news you were a Paramedic. It makes me even more angry to know they did this to "one of our own."

Keep fighting Bryan and I hope you pull through to show those punks their cowardess can't stop you!

Bryan and Stow Family,

I'm thinking of you and wishing you all the best!

Bryan, have sweet dreams as you rest tonight. Your body, spirit and heart are fighting hard to bring you back to the ones you love. I'm praying that you feel peace and love as you sleep.

Stow Family, I hope that you too can rest knowing that there is so much love around you.

I hold you in my heart and prayers. I believe your miracle will come!

Bless you all,

Lord, tonight I pray for Dr. Geoff Manley. Give him wisdom as he treats Bryan. Please be right there in Dr. Manley's ear giving him direction on how to care for Bryan's injuries. I also pray tonight for the entire Stow family, give them all rest & keep their bodies strong through this difficult time. Please lower their stress level so they don't get weak or sick. Hold Bryan's children in your arms & comfort them Lord until Bryan is able to do the same. Amen

Hi-The West Texas Winds are blowing again, plus 101 degree temp. Tonight is graduation for our seniors. I have a niece who will be with the other graduates. Time flys by. Bryan, my prayers blow on our winds daily to you and to God. Remember he is still driving the ambulance. You are wrapped in love and will get getter on God's timeline. For your family-you do not need to apologize for anything you do. This is a new experience and I challenge anyone to be critical of your actions. I'm sure you would love to be having a less challenging one than what has happend with Bryan. My love to all of you as well as prayers. Gentle vibes-Georgana

Lifelong, diehard Giants fan here, going two generations back to the Polo Grounds in New York. First item I check every day: the Giants score. Second: the Bryan Stow Daily (this wonderful blog).

A heckuva lot of good vibes are swinging smooth and long for ya', Bryan. You know the saying, right? "Baseball is life. The rest is just details." Well, your life is square at home plate now. And that's the detail we're all rooting for. For you to smack one into McCovey Cove and round the bases home to your family.

So, when you're ready, man, check out the view. Our boys are in first place. With you front row and center, we just might pull off another miracle. But not until you clinch one first. Let's make it happen, Bryan!

Good morning Bryan,
I am so EXCITED to hear that you are still seizure free and that Dr. Manley is taking you off another of the meds. I am not surprised that you are seizure free because our Heavenly Father has his healing hands upon you at all times, continually whispering words of healing and love to you. Many, many people standing in the gap for you so no other answer but healing. God is taking care of your whole body, even the clots in your legs. Keep up the good work Bryan!! You are doing awesome!!! You rock!!! Strength and peace to you and your family and loved ones. Your new family loves you and is waiting for the day you are back with us. Love.

Good Morning Stow Family and of course Bryan !!! So happy to hear on my return today that Bryan has been seizure free and that the blood clot is not growing !! All very good news !! Thought about all of you while I was away for the weekend, thinking how wonderful it will be when, as a family, you can all come together again for holidays and family gatherings. My prayers never faultered even though I was out of touch !!
Sending love and hugs to all of you and prayers and positive thoughts to Bryan today and everyday !!

Good morning Bryan,
Always good and encouraging news...still no seizures and the blood clot is not growing. God is such an amazing God! He answers our prayers. The hair is still another thing. In all the pictures I've seen of you, your hair is always perfectly groomed. I hope your family is getting pictures of your "mullet" to show you so you can get a good laugh!! I continue to wear your bracelet and I continue to thank God for your total and complete healing Bryan. I know you are gaining strength each day. God is holding you and your family so close to him. Do you feel his peace surrounding you? Love

No matter what side of the dugout you may sit behind, Violence has no place in baseball. I am an Oakland A's fan. Bryan and family you are in my prayes and thoughts are with you on a daily basis. May you find comfort in the love and support of humans. Civility unfortunately is no more. Be with must have love, trust and support. Ann how true it is when you said "The one person who will never ever give up on their child, is a mother. Find peace in your heart knowing that Bryan knows that you are all there. A gentle touch, a soft whisper is heard by Bryan. Have faith in the justice system that these people who committed this unselfish act of violence will prevail. I would like Mr. Ramirez and his Attorney of Record come up to S.F. General Hospital and explain to you that he was home watching his child. Also maybe they can explain this to your daughter, Tabitha as to why her daddy may not be able to walk her down the aisle on her Wedding Day.......Tyler and Tabitha I would just like to say that your daddy will be around for a long, long time and most importantly that he LOVES you very much. Keep the faith and you will be rewarded. God Bless all of the Stow family.

I have been following Bryans story since I heard the news. My heart goes out to Bryan and your family. I am from Charlevoix Michigan and I am a witness that miracles happen. My daughter Emily's fiance Greg, has had a disease known as RSD for over 5 years. He has spent the last 4 confined to a hospital bed. They have been to Mayo clinic, Cleveland Clinic, several specialist and several treatments. None have worked and he had only gotten worse. Last Saturday he had a Faith Healer come to his house. His family and the Healer prayed over him and I kid you not, he is pain free! He will need extensive physical therapy due to drop feet and not using his muscles for years but it was truly a MIRACLE! I am not a religious person and certainly would not have believed it without seeing it first hand. Keep the faith. You can see Greg Vanstedum's recovery miracle on facebook. Best wishes.

I serve breakfast at a downtown restaurant and can't help but think I met you and your friends that morning as you asked about taking a cab to Dodger Stadium. No matter, I have been moved by the circumstances of the day, regarding the evil that others do to their fellow human beings and, as you are my age, I understand how much more of your life you have to live. St. Michael, the Patron Saint of firefighters, policemen and EMT's, the Archangel of God's Warrior Angels pray for you and guard you. You are never alone in suffering as you are never alone in victory.

Good morning Stow family,
I prayed for your son this morning as I do everyday. Thank you, thank you for sharing such a private moment in your lives and making it public so that we can share your pain, concern, but most of all, the excitement of Bryan's healing. I continue to ask that you are given strength and grace to get through all of this. I know that our loving Heavenly Father is doing just that for you all. May his peace that passes all understanding wash over each of you today. With much love and affection. Love

I am so happy top hear Bryan is tracking with his eyes. Keep your faith and let him know he is not alone. Talk to him always and write your thoughts in a journal to read back to him when he fully awakens. My 18 year old son had a severe brain injury and was in a level 2 coma for three months before he awoke. He had mid brain stem injury and Doctors didn't think he would awake but he did and proved everyone wrong. That Bryan is tracking with his eyes is a strong sign. Bryan is in my family's thoughts and prayers and my son and I are pulling for him.

Good evening Stow family,
It was good news to see Brian open his eyes and look around. I've been a giants fan for 49 yrs. I suffered 15 mos ago from viral encephalitis. My wife found me on the floor in a coma after I had been there for 18 hours. The Dr's told my family that I wasn't going to survive. If I did they said I would be a vegetable. All the odds were against me including dehydration and a high fever. I was in a coma on a life support for 8 days. I didnt only survive but made a 100% recovery something the DR's said was impossible. It took about a year but I'm back to 100% and back at my job as an accountant. Amazing! So keep you hopes alive. Its in Gods hands and I predict since he's made good progress he too will make a 100% recovery. It just takes awhile.

Hi to Bryan and his family,
I think of you everyday and pray you wake up soon! I know how hard this is for all of you and wish there was something I could do to help! I no longer live in Norcal but I too am a Giants fan, and live in Santa Barbara with many D fans. I wear my Giants gear proudly and think of you! You are the first person I have known of that loves the Giants and the Cowboys like me! So get better soon, the boys will be down here soon for training and we can all go dressed up in our Cowboy and Giants gear! I have a black mustang and thinking it may need some orange on it and one of the Stow decals, Ill send you a pic! Love from SB to all of you!

Hello Bryan and Stow Family and friends. I am so happy and praise God for blessing Bryan with some activity this past week. God is AWESOME and so is the power of prayer. A nation has come together to pray for a fellow brother who we may not know personally but feel close to over the last 2 months. A day does not go by that I do not think of or pray for Bryan and his family. I can't wait until he can see all of the love that has been sent to him through cards, notes on his website and monetary contributions. It is truly a blessing and I pray that God will continue to strengthen you all and keep you all and Bryan will be able to wake up and recover and live a normal as possible life cheering his favorite team on, Amen.

Peace and Blessings

this is more so a reach out to the family as well as support to Bryan. My son five years ago was struck by a car and suffered several skull fractures and was in a coma for a few months. We were given the news that he may never walk, talk, or eat ever again. Through time he has accomplished a lot. Your patience will be tried! Keep the faith! Please feel free to email me if you would like to talk to someone who has been there and is very familiar with the healing process. It helps because I can relate to the situation very well. I am Kyle's caregiver as well as his mom. I may have information that can be very helpful. Keep strong!

Bryan WILL one day walk out onto the field at AT&T Park and feel the sunshine on his face and hear the roar of the crowd calling his name and see all the smiling loving faces of those who have supported him and his family and he will know that he is loved and a true hero. He has given life back to those whom he has helped and the same shall be given back to him! Keep the faith everyone. Keep saying his name and talking about him every day and one day soon we shall be rewarded with the wonderful news that Bryan has woken up and then, he shall truely be on the road to recovery.

It was so nice to read your post today, thank you for writing to us. We all are supporting you with love & prayers.

Tyler & Tabitha, I am so glad you got to see your dad and how cool was that that he looked at you!! I will continue to pray that very soon your dad will be able to talk back to you. I am so sorry you two have to go through this very hard time in your young lives. Hang in there & keep talking to God. God hears every word you say. Keep hugging your dad. Don't forget to give your mom some hugs too, she needs it.

Jacque, I will be praying for you also during this difficult time. You said the position you are in is difficult to say the least. That gives all of us supporters out here an idea of how to pray for you. Thank you for being so open with us.

Lord, I ask right now that you strengthen Jacque & her husband during this time. Give them wisdom on how to handle each day of this new path in their lives. Help them to guide & comfort Tyler and Tabitha. We all on this website stand by Bryan's entire family. Continue to use us all to love & help this family. God, you are our ultimate protector & provider. Please keep this family in the palm of your hands. Provide exactly what they all need each and every day. Let Bryan wake up soon so he can talk to Tyler & Tabitha. Amen!

Good morning Bryan,
I just read the update from Jacque and I cried while trying to read it to a co-worker. Jacque, you really affirmed for me that God IS a miracle working God and I believe that Bryan really does see his children and I know he is aware of everything around him. I'm sure he reacted inside his body when his kids touched him, hugged him and spoke to him. That's healing!!! One day soon, he's going to hug back and engage his kids in conversation. I for one am very thankful for the beautiful words you wrote. I'm sure this hasn't been easy for you either. Bryan has become a part of my life and I consider it a privilege to pray for his healing and to be an encouragement to his family. Please know we are in this for however long it takes. He has a bigger family now! Love

Dear Stow Family,

I'm glad I found your website as I'm always praying for Bryan's recovery and it's wonderful to see the updates on his progress. I'm a father of two little girls (2 & 4) and it makes sense that when the children come to visit he tracks them with his eyes. The love for your children knows no bounds and no one knows what the power of that love is truly capable of. I wouldn't be surprised at all if when Bryan starts to heal and can reflect on his recovery the kids will be a big part of that. I do believe Bryan will heal, perhaps not right away but over time. I pray for that outcome as well as strength, here and now, for your family.

Hi Family of Bryan,
I was reading Jacque's post today and wanted to write a little comment about it.

Two years ago, my very healthy, active mom ended up in a coma on life support (long, sad story). Every day we hoped to see something, anything that would let us know she was coming back to us. When Jacque mentioned the part about Bryan being able to "track" with his eyes, it made me smile because that's SUCH a good sign! Unlike Bryan, my mom would open her eyes several times each day, but never seemed to be looking at anything. It was heartbreaking to say the least. We hoped she would see us, and look at us, but she never did.

So, the fact that Bryan has opened his eyes and even looked at his kids is an amazing sign. I was really glad to read that!

It might be a long road for Bryan, but it seems like at least he has a road to travel. I think about him, his mom and dad, his sister and his children all the time. I know what you're all going through only too well. Stay strong, he'll be back with you some day soon.

Thursday, June 16, 2011 4:23 PM
Hi Bryan,
Thinking of you and know you are in the best Hands in the world! Such good news that you are still tracking and I know and believe that you do see and hear everything going on around you. It really excites me that you can see your beautiful children and I know that is a real motivator for you to be back to your old self again. I am still believing total healing and restoration and it is so wonderful that your family is so positive in what they speak to you and read to you. Lots of people praying for you and loving you. I continue to speak those things that are not as though they were. You can count on me. Peace, strength, grace and love to you and your family. Love

I think one day soon he will get the chance to read these posts himself and take comfort in knowing hundreds were rooting for him! Thinking of all of you, hang in there....

From Meah - (8 yrs old): Dear Family of Bryan, me and my mom pray for you every night. We hope that Bryan will feel better every day. We feel very happy for him and you because he is showing signs of healing. We hope that your family has a great summer. We hope Bryan feels better. Try to comfort Bryan. Hang in there you guys and tell Bryan that we hope he heals more and we love him. Love Meah.

From Debbie (Meah's mom): Hi Bryan and Family, I have a special reason for feeling very empathetic towards you all because in December of 2009 I suffered a major rollover car accident which left me unconscious for a while and hospitalized with multi trauma injuries for 4 months. The road to recovery has not been quick yet I was blessed with the support and prayers of hundreds of people. I had prayers from people I never met, churches I never attended and I strongly believe that the hand of God was on me through all of those prayers from so many people. I pray that Bryan would recover fully from this horrific tragedy and that he will feel how many people are out here sending him love and prayers. The fervent prayers of hundreds can overcome the evil of a few people. May God shine his light of mercy on Bryan and your family as you all endure this journey to recovery together. I was blessed to have my family there by my side lifting me up the whole time that I was in very bad shape. It made the unbearable, bearable. Pray always and keep the Faith. God does not give us more than we can handle.

God Bless you all - With great love and compassion from South Florida -

What an amazing testimony you will have to share with others. Love

Hey Bryan,

I've changed my profile picture on Facebook in honor of you. Hope you have a fantastic Father's Day!

Hi Tyler & Tabitha. I just turned on the news and saw your interview on TV. I'm so glad you did that. You gave such a nice interview! It was nice to see you & your mom live, I feel like I got to meet you a little bit more. I'm sorry you won't be able to do your annual Giants game with your dad on Father's Day. We will have to pray for next year then. Take care.

"Happy Fathers Day"! Brian It saddens me so much, how mean people have become or how angry people are these days, all the meaness that goes on in todays world, my heart aches for you and your family. Your a man of good helping others in a time of need, may God's angels be your caretakers and may God bless you in a full recovery. From one who cares

Happy Father's Day to both Bryan and Dave. May your cihildren continue to inspire you, esp. so Bryan can go with his kids and his dad to the ballpark sometime soon.
Monday, June 20, 2011 10:45 AM
Good morning Bryan and Dave,
I pray that this Father's Day was a very special one for the two of you. Dave,
what an awesome father you are to have raised up Bryan to be the special young man that he is...someone who helps others and gives of himself. Bryan knows how much you love him. He is aware of everything around him just at a deeper level. What an awesome testimony he is going to have to share with others when he is back with us. It must be difficult to see your child not his usual self but he'll be back and there will be much rejoicing when that happens. Bryan is not the only one who has an extended family that loves him and keeps him in prayer. You, Ann, your grandchildren and your family are loved as well. God's strength and grace to you all. Love

You are in my thoughts and prayers everyday. I can't wait for the day when the post comes that says you have spoken to your kids and family. I know it's coming and I pray that it comes soon!!!! You are young, strong, loved and needed. Keep up the fight Bryan!!! You will win!

Sending hugs, love and prayers,

Bryan, A belated Happy Father's Day to you. The fires have started again in West Texas and still no relief in sight for rain or cooler weather. But you and your family remain in my thoughts and prayers. Yesterday was my great-grandson's first birthday but I was unable to attend. Talked on the phone to him. So funny how quickly you can forget how year olds jabber and carry on.

Keep letting God drive the ambulance. He has brought you special doctors and nurses and help staff to see you through this part of your recovery. You are and will continue to get better until you will be able to leave the hospital.

Angels are carrying prayers your way on the West Texas winds as well as to heaven to God. Gentle vibes-Georgana

Bryan & Family,
in 1992 my fiance was brutally beaten and left for dead by three men in LA. His brain had separated and he was in a coma for over 3 months. He spent the following year re-learning to walk, talk and do things. I didn't know him then, but I have seen a video of his recovery. 1 man was never found, but 2 were arrested. My fiance has no memory of that day except leaving his home. Today, other than short term memory loss and extreme anger rushes, as well as scars from surgeries to release the contracted legs and arms, he is fine. I love him even more for his bravery and courage. You are a remarkable human being and family man. Don't ever let anyone say you won't recover, as they told my fiance's mom. just keep praying and loving each other.
Each day is a blessing for us. It isn't always easy, but I remember just how far Walter has come and how much he has overcome.
Keep fighting, you are always in our prayers!
God Bless you all, especially Bryan.
Cat & Walter.

Hello, I continue to keep you all in my prayers. I know God is working and His healing hand in on Bryan. Prayer is the most powerful thing we possess and can use. Please stay strong and continue to draw strenght from God. I have often heard that playing Christian music is very theraputic and speeds recovery, if the hospital will allow, this will be something that will work wonders. I check the website every few days to read about updates and praise God for every small improvement. Continue to let Bryan know that a lot of people are praying a miralce for him. Much Love from Texas

On this first day of summer, I wanted to send along some love and thoughts for all the Stows. I printed out a Baskin and Robbins Coupon earlier that reminded me of something. Almost every year B & R has the summer promotion of a two scoop sundae inside a baseball helmet (it also comes with a bottkle of water). If it is available this year, I'll definitely get a Giants one for you, Bryan. Perhaps some other kind folks on here could get a few additional ones so that when you wake up and are happily back with your kids and family, you can enjoy some ice cream while watching your favorite baseball team. We are all rooting for you!
Wednesday, June 22, 2011 10:33 AM
Good morning Bryan,
How awesome to read that you watched a video that your "seesters" taped for you!!! How blessed you are to have such loving "seesters". I am sooooo stoked!! It's just a matter of time before you are back with us enjoying life as you are meant to do. We need you back out there helping people and just being Bryan. God is so good. He truly is a God of miracles and you are his work in progress!! Again I say, "Call those things that are not as though they were!" With much love and encouragement to you and your family. And we all say it "AMEN!!!!!!!" Love

Hey Bryan, Just read in the LA Times you had moved your arm and had been upgraded on your progress. That's tremendous, and just keep doing what you're doing while God drives the ambulance!!

Still fighting our fire here outside Sweetwater in West Texas. Has grown to 65,000 acres +. Have firefighters from WA, CA, and UT helping all our guys and the State Forestry folks. Desperately in need of some of God's special rain.

Angels are still carrying prayers on our West Texas Winds to you and your family and also to God in Heaven. You will overcome this obstacle you are fighting at this time. Prayers, thoughts and gentle vibes-Georgana

Hi Bryan,
What exciting news to hear about your upgrade from critical to serious!!! God IS answering prayers and I will keep the prayers going up to our Heavenly Father each day for you. How AWESOME he is to hear each of our prayers and ACT on them and there are LOTS AND LOTS of them going up to him for you!! I'm going to have to prepare for my "happy dance"'s going to happen! Dear Stow family, I ask God to give you strength and may his peace that passes all understanding wash over each of you. Let go and let his love fill you to the full. Love

Good morning Bryan,
I am still rejoicing in the wonderful news of your upgrade from critical to serious. I get giddy and cry at the same time. God IS SO AWESOME!!! He is hard at work on you and your family. For you- your healing. For your family-strength, peace and great faith in what God can do. I pray that people won't put God in a box and limit him because will him "ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!!"! He is a miracle working God and miracles do happen still. God has something special planned for you, Bryan, I can feel it!! I am so grateful to him for bringing your family together even closer than you or they ever thought possible. You have shown people all around the country and the world what is possible when people come together with the same vision where there is LOVE!!!

Good morning Bryan,
What a beautiful day it is because you are here and you are healing. I read the update from Christi. She truly loves you Bryan. You are so blessed! Did she paint your toenails when she gave you your mani/pedi? Just asking. I am so stoked to read that you watched her the whole time. You ARE coming back and it's just a matter of time and we'll all be here when it happens. You are a fighter and you ARE getting stronger moment by moment. Continue to rest in Gods strong and loving arms. His healing touch is upon you constantly. Love

I am a life-long Dodgers fan. As someone born & raised in L.A., I want to extend my apologies to Bryan's friends and family. I am embarrassed by the actions of these fake "fans" and I hope and pray that justice will be served.

My husband is a Mets fan and last summer we took our kids to a game. I was in Dodgers gear & he was in Mets gear. On the way to the car, we were followed and verbally attacked by some of these gangbanger fake fans. I was concerned because we had 3 kids with us and these people were yelling insults & profanity. It could have gotten very ugly. We were fortunate to get out safely, but unfortunately the worst-case scenario took place for Bryan. Again, I am so terribly sorry that he and his loved ones were forced to see that dark side of this great city.

There are many of us pulling for you. We keep you in our thoughts and prayers. I am looking forward to hearing even better news in coming weeks. May God bless the Stow family. Know that you have a lot of love and support here in Los Angeles.

Bryan, Your family is doing a great job with your website and especially the updates. Our fire outside Sweetwater in West Texas is finally under control after 8 rough days. Acreage lost, livestock, but no injuries to all the firefighters and those from the Forest Service both state national. So God has watched over us. It will rain when he decides it is time. So like you, we have to let God drive the ambulance and firetruck for the time being.

West Texas winds are still sending Angels with prayers your way as well as up to Heaven to God. Continue to grow stronger and enjoy all the pampering you are receiving which is full of love from not only the givers, but through them, we send our love, hugs and gentle vibes. G

Good morning Bryan and family!
I pray that your weekend was a wonderful time to be together and grow stronger as a family! Much prayer going up for you Bryan! You continue to be in my daily thoughts and prayers. I so look forward to the updates your family provides for all of us! It is so encouraging and just keeps all of us amped up to keep praying all the more for you! We won't let the enemy win this one! Praise God that he is in control of everything. He has such special plans for you Bryan. You have already caused many to pray for you and to come together agreeing with one another for your healing. Rest and heal Bryan. Love

Dear Bryan and Family,
I have been through this experience first hand. My brother suffered a Brain Injury in 1985 in an Automobile Accident. I understand the daily vigilances, prayers, and miracles that occur in this situation. It does help to talk to them, play thier favorite music for them, etc. There were many prayers on my brothers's behalf. You have never been so closer to GOD in this moment. Know that Bryan hears you and your prayers.

There are many levels of consciencness. If you believe you speak to him and he hears YOU and he speaks to YOU. You are correct. I experienced this as well! Not a wierdo here. There are Miracles. You have to be still and listen. The Medical staff at the University of Utah could not believe this when it happened. They said there was no way of me knowing when my brother would wake. But he told me"Don't worry about me, I am here and I am coming back." He opened one of his eyes the next day! Coincidence? No. It happened. Of course, the road to recovery was long. Rehabilation etc. But I was there every step of the way. I don't regret any of this experience. Know that your prayers are being heard by Bryan and others as you go through this journey of healing. God Bless, Bryan and you all are in my prayers. From one who knows...:)

Good morning Bryan,
I am so glad that the video spoken of showed who you really are. I for one, don't like to listen to gossip. It can be very hurtful and to what purpose? Father, I ask right now that you touch Bryan's family. Give each of them your peace and strength right now Father. Give each of them the rest they need to take care of themselves so that they can continue to be by Bryan's side to encourage him and show their love. I call down the fear, which does not come from you and instead give them faith to believe that he is safe in YOUR CAPABLE, LOVING HANDS!!!! We thank you that Bryan is healed of the urine infection and that your hands guide the doctors hands as the shunt is put in place. Thank you that the shunt will do its job Father. We thank you Father that we can come to you for anything and believing, that it will come to pass. We praise you for your mercy and grace, In Jesus' name. Amen Love

Hello, I just read the update and want to tell you to please remain strong in the LORD and don't be discouraged when GOD has Bryan take a rest in his progress. GOD is still working and healing Bryan with his Almight, powerful and miraculous hand. Sometimes GOD needs us to be still while we are not able to see HIM working, but rest assure GOD is still GOD and still in control. So to Bryan, his beautiful children, family, girlfriend and multitude of friends, hugs from TEXAS.

I read your updates everyday and always keep Bryan in my prayers. I am from Colorado and the overwhelming support was apparent when the Dodgers came two weeks ago to play the Rockies. Although, I don't necessarily associate the Dodger players with this incident, having them here made it obvious how many people in the stands were thinking of Bryan.

There is a reason that Bryan is still here and I believe that a full recovery is in the works, even if its hard to find patience waiting for it. Violence should not be accepted at sporting events and needs to be an issue that is dealt with asap. Our family keeps you in our thoughts and prayers constantly!

Bryan and your whole family are in my thoughts every day. i can relate to what you all are going through. i would like to share my story to give you hope that i was not given. i know in life there are no promises and no guarantees but miracles do happen and during times like this everyone deserves a little hope to hold onto.. not false promises... just something to hold onto when it feels like there's nothing. Last year my fiance Juan was a passenger in a car accident and received massive severe brain damage (cerebral peduncle type 3 diffuse axonal) his diagnosis was grim. Dr.s gave him less then 1% chance to survive and even if he survived he would never regain any functions. i quit work to be with him every day. it was such an emotional roller coaster... some days he would open his eyes and follow me part way around the room and other days he did nothing sometimes weeks would go by with no movement... just seizure like movements due to the brain damage. Some dr.s wrote Juan off and said pneumonia and bed soars will be part of his dr. even said " why r u here everyday? he is not gonna get better, he will never be who he was...he will never be anything again" but i knew Juan's and my life couldn't end up this way. i just kept praying and every day. i talked to him...cleaned him, changed him, bathed him, changed his sheets and had him listen to familiar music with my iPod. Juan was eventually sent to a nursing home and i went with him. day and night i stayed with him trying to hold on to whatever hope i could find and one day it happened... he stood up on his own with a little help from pt for balance. it took time b4 he was able to lift him head but he did it... Juan went on and relearned to walk, talk, eat etc... Juan got his drivers license back in October 2010 and went back to work in November 2010. He made a full recovery and has no disabilities. Don't listen to any of the negativity just keep doing what your doing... keep talking to him... touching him him familiar things let him listen and watch familiar and favorite music and shows. Bryan is there... hes just in the dark and and needs the love and support from family and friends to help him find his way out. Never give up on him. I hope Juan's story helps you stay a little stronger.
Thursday, June 30, 2011 10:37 AM
Hi Bryan,
Well, it looks as though the shunt will have to wait for a little while but we are NOTdiscouraged!! We ALL pray that the fever and any infection has left your body and the doctors will go ahead with placing the shunt. Remember, " those things that are not as though they were!!!!!" You turned your hand over to take the foam understood...HOW AWESOME!!! Hang in there Bryan. Stow family..."if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you." Praying peace and rest for all of you. Thank you for the updates! They truly make my day albeit I "happy cry" alot trying to read them to my friends. Love

I hope you have some fun, lighter moments this holiday weekend. Bryan, keep fighting. I believe in you. Peace from LA.
Thursday, June 30, 2011 8:53 PM
I just wanted to share with your family that my father also suffered a traumatic brain injury. He was kicked in the head by a horse as his job was to train horses and horses were his passion. When we saw this story on the news, It was hard to believe someone would injure someone purposely and I was saddened to know what your family would go through. We have had our struggles throughout my Dad's recovery. His injury was very similar to Bryans. There is always hope. Do not accept any negative news from the doctors. God is the only one who knows and with my Dad we have witnessed many miracles. We have seen the doctors proved wrong. Our prayers are with your family.

I check the site daily and update all of my friends on your condition. You will be with me on a beautiful summer day at a ballgame - when you get well, you can be my guest for a game I hope.
We're all watching and waiting for further news of your healing - by the way,pretty cool of your "dude" friends to massage your hands. Make sure to tease them mercilessly about it when you're up and around.

Love on ya

To the Stow’s Family, I don’t know where to start. I am not much of sports fan of any kind I guess I my deafness has to do with it. I went to public school no kids wanted me on their team. Fast forward, I am Aunt of seven nephew and five niece. I just lost a nephew this year in March by a terrible tragic. It was very hard for me and my family. Because of my deafness I am lost in communication with my family and need healing from this. Some how I stumble across Bryan story. I grieved that this has happen to him. I feel for your family and I pray for each one of you and for Bryan recovery. But it does not stop here this website gave me a focus. I feel like I have another family that I need to fight for and pray for has been the best thing I could have. I daily check the update. Bryan keep on fighting, it will be worth it.

From Louisiana, Christy :)

Dear Stow Family,
I check on Bryan's condition very often. This must be agony for all of you. When I was in a coma (for 10 days) due to complications from childbirth not a brain injury, I recall feeling horrible for my husband. I remember telling him it must have been a lot worse for him than for me. He was the one feeling all the uncertainty, making medical decisions, dealing with what if... the doctors told my husband I had a 20% chance to live and my husband later told me he knew I would not die. He never gave up. Stay strong Stow Family. I am a believer in miracles, I've witnessed them and experienced them first hand. In the end my two children (exactly 2 years 3 days apart) weighed 2lbs each at birth. You can imagine the complications that ensued for us. I often tell my children that it's okay if it takes them a little longer to learn will, and it's okay that you take longer to write, you will and it's okay if it takes you longer to tie your shoes, you will. My favorite saying that has become my mantra to my children is....It's okay if it takes a litle longer....Slow and steady won the race.
It's okay if it takes Bryan a while to heal...I know the "Great Hodge" will win this race, it's just gonna be done his way. Always praying for the Stow family.

All my love. Cheryl

When I heard what happened to Bryan, my heart truly ached for his family, his friends, his girlfriend, and most especially his children. It is hard to believe that we live in a world where people can senselessly hurt others; it is so sad. I pray for you all, and I cannot wait until the day when I log on to see how Bryan is doing and I read that he is awake and responding well...I know that day is near. Keep up your strength and fortitude...God Bless.

Good afternoon Bryan,
Although it's been a few days since I was last here writing you a note you and your family have constantly been in my prayers and thoughts. Were you able to see any fireworks from your window view at the hospital for the 4th of July? I hope they were especially SPECTACULAR for you Bryan!! I pray that you were indeed able to have the shunt placed and that all is well. God has you in his capable hands. He is Jehovah Rapha - The Lord our Healer! I know, I sound like a broken record BUT, I am believing that you have been completely restored and healed. Just take it moment by moment, day by day. Lots of people out here loving you. Love

Dear Bryan and Stow Family,
I want to let you know that I have been following Bryan's story and have thought about posting many times. This is something I would not normally do. I think about how many others there must be like me. Today is the day.
I am a Cleveland Indians fan. My team won last night in dramatic fashion with a walk off Grand Slam. I had goosebumbs while watching this wonderful feat. This morning I teared up watching the highlights. Shortly after, I checked the update on Bryan. I was happy to see that everytime I check, there seems to be some progress. I watched the Coldplay video and thought of you and your unbelievable challenges and support for your son. I completely broke down and cried. The emotion I feel for you is immesurable. I am going to write my wife a special note and leave it in her car this morning to tell her how much I love her. Thank you for perspective. God Bless you and keep the faith. Many prayers and positive thoughts your way..
# Jennifer
Friday, July 8, 2011 12:23 PM
Keep up the positive thoughts! I know it sucks that you can't go back in time and tell Bryan not to go to the game and I know you all want to know why this happened. Unfortunatly no one will probably ever know! But the fact is, it did happen and it seems as this tragedy has brought your family closer to each other1 It makes you realize how precious life truly is and how short it is. Keep close to each other, don't ever lose sight of your family, they are so important.

Always praying for Bryan! To Bryan, keep up the fight! Stay strong and even though it's going to take some time, continoue to heal and come back to your family and children! Praying so hard for you everyday!

I've never met Bryan, nor have I met any members of your family but I was touched in many ways when I heard of his story. I was stricken with grief for the children who lost precious days and months without their father; overwhelmed with anger that we share this world with unrelentess monsters who are capable of such unspeakable violence; and consumed with fear and hearbreak that one moment, one disgusting moment of horror can change the lives of a family forever. I am haunted daily by the reality Bryan's state but optomistic that his life will slowly be given new breathe and that his eyes flickering open is just the beginning of his path back to his old life. I can feel the outpouring of love through the smiles I see on the faces of strangers on this site. You all look like such wonderful people but instead of bestowing upon you my pity or rage, I give you my prayers and my support that Bryan will come back to you again and bring you the same joy he did during years past. I know that one day he will read the letters and emails from those who's never met, yet people who share his pain. I want you to know that I along with countless others, are fighting silently along with you to keep you father, brother, friend and son alive. It seems that with each movement his body makes, his spirit is coming back to life...with each blink, his soul is rising back to earth. With the stregnth and devotion you have all shown, it is no wonder he is struggling to make his way back into your arms. It's a slow journey but a journey forward notheless. I will keep Bryan in my thoughts and prayers.
# Breanna

I send my prayers out to Bryan and his family.

I understand the grief you are going through, and hope that he recovers very soon.

A quote that I found years ago that helped me through my hard times:

"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." - John 14:27

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family for Bryan. I am a big Sports fan and no fan deserves this. The City of Los Angeles and all Dodgers fans should be ashamed. I am happy to hear you are suing the Dodgers. I hope you get millions, but more importantly I hope Bryan recovers and has a good quality of life . stay strong and I will pray for his health and recovery!
good wishes,

Hi Stow Family,

I have been reading the updates on Bryan. Glad to hear that he is moving his legs & opening his eyes. I have been wearing the rubber wristband & will leave it on until I know he is out of the hospital, if not longer. I wish you & Bryan the BEST.

Hope he gets better real soon,

We can only pray and hope for your God speed healing! My father was in a medically induced coma after being in an explosion. It was scary and we know what you and your family are facing! We love you and pray for your recovery! I know it will be very odd to wake up and see this outpouring of love for someone we don't and you don't know us. We love you and our love goes out to your family! Good will always prevail over the acts of the evil! God bless you, Bryan, and God bless your family! Heartfelt best wishes to you and all of your family! Jon, Bonnie & Noah

Hello to Brian and the Stow Family,

I try to read about you everyday. Glad, to hear that your improving my friend. I know you will make it, your a strong person with a strong family thats with you everyday.

Stay Strong my friend

Good morning Bryan,
YES, YES, YES!!! The wonderful news just continues!! Improvement movement by movement, moment by moment, day by day! You continue to be in my daily prayers and in the prayers of many, many other people who have come to care for and love you Bryan! You have a wonderful, loving family who will go to the ends of the earth for you, but then I don't have to tell you that, you already know it!! Just breath in the love of God and his healing for you and know that he continues to whisper to you. He speaks to you constantly and wants you to know all about what he HAS done for you and what he IS doing for you. Take it ALL in and BELIEVE. Love.
Wednesday, July 13, 2011 1:18 PM
Hi Bryan,
I hope your on your on the road to recovery. Listen when I heard your story on TV, It made me very emotional because when people are beaten up that way, Its very easy for someone to die from their injuries, but you have defined the odds and shown the world that you are a miracle and and survived your attack.

In conclusion, You will always be in my prayers and maybe in the future I would like to meet you and your family If that's ok with you because I was also a victim of an assult and want to share my story with you and your family. God Bless you and have a great road to recovery and Bryan your my hero

Hi Bryan and The Stow Family,

Well, talk about positive steps. Bryan is now moving his arm and is aware when his tempature has to be taken. This is absolutely brilliant. Again the small positive steps, the movement of his eyes, his arm and his mouth. This is very good. Let us pray that it continues as I know it will. I believe in you Bryan, believe in your ability to get better, to recover and leave the hospital.

That poem that the other supporter wrote, well that is just great!!

C'mon Bryan, the 2nd half of the season starts in a day or two. Your beloved Giants are in first place and it is going to be a great race to the playoffs!!

I have Brian and the Stow family in my prayers. As a baseball fan, and a Los Angeles Dodgers fan it makes me so sorry to see these kind of petty acts committed against opposing fans and that we can't enjoy a ball game together as fans for fear of things like this. I sincerely hope for Brian to make the best recovery possible.

Good morning Bryan!!
What "EXCITING" news to read today!! God IS doing mighty things with you Bryan! I have believed from the beginning that you would be healed and made whole again because our God is a Mighty God. He is a healer and restorer. Just as Libby's poem reads, "something good always comes from that which is evil" and that IS so true! You are going to have such an awesome testimony to share with the world about God's healing powers. It's good to hear that you are getting a bit feisty. Always a good sign. I continue to keep you and your family if prayer and I have my bracelet on today as I do everyday. It reminds me to pray and thank God that you have such a tremendously loving family AND extended family surrounding you with love. Thank you Stow family for the updates! They always make my day! Love.

Dear Stow Family,

I have been keeping track of Bryan's recovery and I am so excited to hear his progress. God is definitely in control and I know that our Lord is merciful.

When this first happened I was in shock, but not surprised of the violence some of the Dodger fans have. I was born and raised a Dodger fan. My father was a die hard fan and would always see their games on TV. I can't remember if he ever went to a Dodger game. I do love my Dodger only because of the centimental memories they give me, but I do not believe in the negative supporter/followers they have. Not all of the Dodger fans are evil and most of us have been praying for your family and the quick recovery of Bryan. I am thankful that there are still so many great people in this world to continue their support and love for you family.

God Bless you all and I believe that God is working on healing Bryan.

With Love
The Martinez/Sanchez Family

Great news on the progress he has made. I am all too familiar with brain injuries, as my father suffered one two years ago. It can be discouraging that they don't just "wake up", but remember that even the most minute sign of progress is a step in the right direction. When doctors and nurses didn't think my father would ever talk or walk again, I never gave up hope. I knew he would, and he did, and every day he gets better. Keep talking to him, keep interacting. Show him pictures and tell him who's in the pictures....I did this with my dad (the same pictures every day) and this is one of the few things he remembers.
Your family will be in my prayers.

9Hey Bryan, Just reading about your surgery yesterday. I'm so pleased that they doctors were able to do the surgery at this time. With all the love and prayers, I know this is merely another step in your recovery. God Bless your wonderful surgeons and all the other medical staff. They are doing a fantastic job.

We're still fighting fires here, but so far, they have been small and manageable. No rain in sight; just hot, hot days.

I'm following the bridge destruction down in the LA area. Having been a longhaul driver for 30 plus years, I had no faith that this would go off as smoothly as it has thus far. Traffic 24-7 has always been the norm down there.

You take care. God is still driving the ambulance, and prayers and gentle vibes are coming on the West Texas Winds to you. Georgana

Hang in there, Bryan ... the mountain you are climbing is steep and high but you have multitudes with you ... you may not see them but in the stillness I know you can feel them.

You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers daily. It feels right to send some extra love & light to you today ... so I do.

Many blessings.

Hooray for a successful surgery and I hope this brings even closer steps to a full recovery. I know you can do it, Bryan... we're all rooting you on!

As the DR's say it's normal to have a little set back after this kind of surgery but with all the prayers and the support of your loving family and now of all your extended family we are with you every step of the way. I ware my bracelet everyday and think of you and say a little prayer. To Bryan's family thank you for the updates what a wonderful and blessed family you are for doing this post.

We have a house down there on Ambergris Caye and would like to officially invite Bryan and family to come stay. Went to a festival today and stopped by the booth for St. Rose Church. I was given an armband that says Walking with's next to my Stow band....Keep up the strength....he knows you're there..Love, Bobbie

A Poem For Bryan

Where there is love
hate cannot dwell
We all rushed to your side
the night that you fell

You captured a nation
with heart strong and true
Not a day goes by that
thousands don't pray for you

We wait every day
for you to awaken
Despite minor setbacks
our faith won't be shaken

Can you feel our love
all for you Bryan Stow
For to us you've become
a modern day hero.

Much love, Linda

Bryan, I am sending extra angels on the West Texas Winds to sit not only on your shoulders, but the shoulders of Issac and Mark as well. They will be in my thoughts and prayers as well. I'm glad they were able to relieve the fluid building up. Just a small sidestep to make things better.

God is still driving your ambulance, so continue to get your strength back as well as lots of rest. We are still dry and hot, but thankfully no fires since last Monday.

Love the new song, "Calling All Angels." And believe me, they are listening. Prayers on the W.T.W's to God in heaven as well. Gentle vibes, Georgana

I think about you and your family all the time from here in New Jersey, Bryan. As a parent who has children the same ages as yours I think about all the time "what if this were me" and how my girls would feel. I'm sure you have a very brave, loving wife and children and all are pulling for you more than anyone. Keep fighting!!! Those who love you most NEED YOU! I know I'm not the only one who thinks that if those thugs who harmed you were in cardiac arrest in that parking lot it would be YOU who would be right there to save their lives. This WORLD needs people like you! I wish you the very best and hope you get through this and can lead a normal life and watch your children grow. God bless you my friend! All the best.....

All of our prayers will be answered and Bryan will come home to your family with all of us praying for his recovery. We have to continue to BELIEVE IN MIRACLES, IT HAPPENS ALL THE TIME. Everyone out there continue your support to the family and keep on praying.

I am so sorry for this set-back. I'm sure you are frustrated, scared, and sometimes discouraged. It just doesn't seem fair. Please keep visualizing Bryan's recovery. Stay strong, lean on each other, and know all the support and love and encouragement that is being sent to you - both in writing, and in spirit. We are all rooting for the best possible outcome to this. You are all amazing to stay so courageous and dedicated. Acknowledge yourselves, too. It's hard to stay positive, and you are all doing an amazing job.

hey bryan! it's been several weeks since i last wrote, but i do check in often and you and your family are very much in my thoughts. i was sorry to hear about your recent setback, but i have no doubt that you've got the best medical team out there to help see you thru. Some really good news! ... Local ABC news is reporting that two new suspects have been arrested in your attack. I know the LAPD has been working tirelessly on this and I can only hope that they finally have the men that did this to you. stay well and stay strong - ken

My heart is full of contempt and anger along with sorrow and prayers for you, but mostly I pray for you and your family. I wish you and yours a better day every day and that soon these challenges will be behind you. Sincerely, Susan in San Leandro.

I was so sorry to hear about this happening to you! My husband and son go to baseball games in Atlanta, Ga. often. It is really upsetting when bad things happen to innocent people. I pray for your complete recovery .. and the time that you have lost with your children and family to be restored. Also, for the people who did this to be caught and sent to jail for a very long time. Thoughts and Prayers from South Carolina.

Dear Bryan,

I am here to write this note to support you and your family. I wrote you a short poem, and when you are well, I hope you enjoy it.

He appears to sleep but in a moment don’t blink,
He opened his eyes and started to think.
The strength in his soul his will to be free,
To get up and help the people in need.
For he is a giver of life and of breath,
This man named Byran I will not forget.

Be strong and please hurry and heal, there are many people waiting for you.
All my best
Tracy from Santa Cruz

Dear Stow Family,

Tonight I watched the first episode of Showtime's 'The Franchise'. Immediately, I Googled Bryan to see how he was doing. I was saddened to read the 7/19 update.

Hours later, compelled to send my best wishes to your family and to Bryan, I am delighted to see the most recent update about his incredible day. I sincerely hope Bryan and your family continue to see positive progress as he continues his recovery.

I am the first-born and only daughter of a life long Met fan (I have two younger brothers). My family moved around a lot as I grew up – including two years in Benicia, CA in the mid-eighties. My first professional baseball game was a Giants v. Mets double header at Candlestick Park. To this day it remains a very special memory for me.

My point is simply this. My father, in his early 30’s, took his 7 year-old daughter and 5 year-old son to a Giants’ game and routed for the opposing team. As an adult, I certainly understand rivalries and the impact of the abhorrent decisions of a few people on the lives of others.

Rivalries should end on the field – not in the stands. What happened to Bryan and your family is truly heartbreaking but also inspiring that a family can rally around and encourage the support of a nation. I am not one to randomly post on websites, but this could have been my father. It could be my husband or brother routing for the Mets in a rival ball field. You are a truly remarkable family and I am so moved by your love and grace in this most trying (and public) situation.

Sending much love, hope and all good thoughts from New York.

What Bryan is going through is awful, and it is even more devastating because he seems like such a good guy, hard worker, dedicated dad, and sports fan. Thanks to his family for being there for him every single day since his attack. My best wishes for continued healing of his injuries. I, too, look forward to Bryan throwing out the first pitch at a Giants game.

Good morning... I am one among many people tied emotionally to this story. Every day I think of Bryan and continually wish him and his family, friends, and loved ones well. Today (well, yesterday, the 21st) was my 25th birthday. I was lucky enough to spend it with family. Among them was a very close family friend that I have known over half of my short time on earth. When he was 17, he was shot, point blank, in the face with a handgun by a "friend." All expectations of his outcome were very poor. Fast forward 13 years. He is walking, talking, alive and well... with little or no noticeable deficit from the traumatic brain injury he faced. He retold his story and I couldn't help but relate it to Bryan. Miracles happen. And I believe they are culminating in the beginning stages for Bryan. I am tied to him, as a sister in our EMS family, as a fellow Giants fan, and above all else, as a human being shaken by this unspeakable act of senseless violence. I wear my Stow bracelet proudly, explaining to many people what it means and spreading the word of his unshakeable will to live. It's funny, a lot of people see his P number and ask if it's MY P number, if I wear it on a bracelet so I don't forget it. :[ I love telling them, no, this isn't MY P number, this is the P number of a paramedic that's fighting so strongly to come back to his loved ones. And then, they remember... so many people are rallying for Team Stow. Your story is alive and well in Northern CA. I will continually visit for updates until Bryan is healthy again. Stay strong, and take a small comfort in knowing that Bryan has touched lives of people that he has never even met, and probably never will. Take care.]

I am an RN and want to share a recommendation for Bryan. My son was in a coma following a TBI. Someone shared info regarding Hyperbaric Treatments. We did do treatments in Chico California. Those treatments MADE A DIFFERENCE for my son. The docs weren't encouraging/ excited about us doing these "experimental" txs and were amazed. This was 11 yrs. ago. Now they are using them for injured US servicemen. Accept this info, just as I did, for consideration. Best of luck and prayers coming your way.

Bryan, I am not sure if you remember me and my husband....We met you and your gf at Danny's house for a Super Bowl party. We also worked at chili's and you would visit my hubby at the bar top. Well, we have been following you ever since this has happened. Every day I stop to read to see how you are doing and hope for the very best. You and your gf were so incredibly thoughtful every single time you ran into us at work, you always asked how our children were doing...and that hit a very special place in my heart. I wish for an amazing recovery for you and your family, Bryan and even though we are not at chili's in capitola anymore, we are still in the area and can't wait to see your face!!!!

Hi, Someone in our prayer group has elected to a collective group prayer for Bryan, and all of his "neighbors" and their families in ICU. Along with the prayer, we are also dedicating the solid 5 minutes in gratitude for all of the improvements and good news this week, as well as in weeks past.

We would be honored for anyone of you to join us. The event starts at 5 p.m. Saturday July 23rd. People from all over the U.S. (and a couple other countries) will be there. All we are asking is for people to stop what they are doing, no matter where they are, and just tune in to prayer and gratitude in honor of Bryan.

Thanks, God Bless,

"The Bryan Brigade"

I have been praying for Bryan since he was beaten. I am a daughter of a Hawthorne Policeman who was injured on duty back in 1980 and left with a brain injury and a forced early retirement at 38 years old. Now, 31 years later, our family is still intact. Our family never thought about where we would be 30+ years later. Now is hour by hour, day by day. Later you all will look back and see YOU ALL did make it through those truly rough times. Tonight, my heart is aching yet comforted that your family will keep moving forward. We celebrated those small milestones just as you all are. While Bryan fights to open his eyes, move his fingers, respond to your voices. We are celebrating, too.

We will continue to keep you all in our prayers. Know you have our complete support. Bryan keep fighting, your family, friends and many supporters are behind you all the way!

God Bless!

I wear my Stow bracelet every day and I pray for you often. I know in my heart that you will soon be back with all of your family. You have a lot of support out herte Bryan and that also makes me happy. Get Better Bryan!! Lots of love to you!

2 years ago my then 23 year old son had a brainstem stroke. He cannot walk or talk. He was in the hospital for rehab when the attack on Bryan occured. I got him a support bracelet when he read the story on cnn. He has never taken it off and he looks daily for updates on Bryans condition. He knows what it is like to live with an ABI (aqquired brain injury) and he and our family send our prayers every day for Bryans recovery. Although we live in Canada, my son Mike hopes to meet Bryan one day and perhaps share a game together. Bryan, if the Giants ever play the Blue Jays here in Toronto once you recover its game on! Keep up the fight!

My heart goes out to the Stow family, but please resist any frustrations and have patience.

My father was hit with a mortar in Korea, which destroyed much of the left side of his head and left shrapnel in his eye and various other parts of his body. The field medic looked at him and abandoned him to help others more likely to be saved. A logical decision at the time.

A soldier from another company who'd never seen my father before, at Hawaiian man named Castro who weighed about 140 pounds, happened to see my father move his left index finger. So he carried him back to the MASH station by himself. They did wonders, patched him up there and sent him to Seoul, where they did wonders again, patched him up enough to send him to Tokyo, with a telegram informing his parents he may not survive the trip.

Our doctors in Tokyo did wonders, enough to send him to the United States, along with a telegram saying he may not survive the trip. Doctors back here did a good job, too. But rehab was a long process. It was two years before he went home, paralyzed on his right side, confined to a wheelchair the rest of his life, which doctors said would be another two to four years.

It was chilling to read those telegrams. But here's my point:

It wasn't long before he was out of his wheelchair with a brace and cane, then just a cane, then just him. His short life expectancy allowed him to greet each morning as a gift and he opened each one like it was Christmas morning. He fathered three children, played baseball, basketball, football, tennis, shot pool and play table tennis. The latter was his first athletic recreation, which he played when a cousin pulled him from his wheelchair and locked his leg brace as Dad leaned against the table. He was good enough to advance into the third round of the city tournament.

There were some lifelong challenges, of course, in going from a right-handed all-state outfielder to a left-sided only person. He couldn't play ice hockey. Cutting a steak was out of the question until a dear friend discovered a one-handed steak knife when Dad was in his late 30s. And sit down one night when you've got some time and slip on your shoes. Try tying them with just your weak hand.

His funeral came 50 years after the doctors' maximum prediction, and was attended by five grandchildren and three great-grandchildren - all taught to give the raspberry as soon as they were old enough and their parents turned their backs.

Dad and I were close all our lives and he liked to tell stories about the people he knew and especially the ones he just met. There were at least a half-dozen people at his funeral I didn't know and never heard of when they introduced themselves and told me they never heard my father complain about anything and that he was their hero.

My apologies for taking some long to tell this story, but your patience is my point. Don't get frustrated and let your loved feel sense it. He's not even close to the time of recovery my father put in before emergency surgery was not rare.

Please allow my father to give you a little more hope that time and support and your constant hope may help him go much farther than the best case scenario appears to be now.

Dear Bryan and the rest of the Stow family, I'm a perfect stanger from almost the opposite side of the country all the way from the Mississippi Gulf Coast. I woke with a heavy heart today. I've had some recent anguish the past couple of days, mainly being because of the way i've recently been treated on a softball field. I'm a 28 year old guy that loves baseball and anything associated with it, and a former college baseball athlete. So recently when our coach put me last in the batting order, it enraged me like never before. I sat and kept all those negative feelings to myself all game long. Soon after, I express those same feelings to my wife and to my coworkers in the following days, telling them how absurd and naive my coach was for hitting me last. It wasn't until I was able to step back from that situation and put things into perspective that I was able to see how lucky I actually was to be a part of something that some peole don't get the opportunity to do. See, I've known about your fight for your life and the struggle your family has gone through since that horrible incedent, through media coverage, for quite some time. And it really hit me this morning after hearing an update on your story, that it's not all about me. It's all about helping to serve others and to be the faithful servant that God would have me to be. I realize that there are so many people that love the game of baseball and for some reason or another they get stripped from the opportunity to do something they love to do (whether it's to be a fan or a player). So from this day forward and for the rest of my life that i'm able to be part of the game of baseball or softball, I want your family to know that each step that Bryan makes towards recovery, that gives me more inspiration to become better than I was the day before. Thank you so much for all of your courage that you exhibit on a daily basis. Your family will forever be in my hearts and many many prayers will continue to be said on your behalf. We are and will continue to be rooting for you all the way over here in Mississippi. Once again thank you for showing us what true strength really is! God Bless you and your entire family!

Sending my very best to Bryan and his family..but most importantly, to Bryan...I have been watching his condition improve and am rooting for him here in Redondo Beach. May God bless him with continued strength to keep fighting and getting back on his feet and recovered fully.
Saturday, July 23, 2011 11:03 AM
Bryan, I pray you will read this.

I am horrified by this, as I am by all these sorts of acts of unspeakable, random, and utterly detestable violence. I see your pictures of you and your children and I am so very very saddened. I hope those men spend their lives paying for what they have done to you and your family. You did not deserve this and you did not do anything wrong.

My spouse suffers from mental illness, and times I feel hopeless and like I want to die and that I can never ever manage it.

Then I think about you and what horror you suffered and I tell myself that we may be hungry but at least we are in our home, relatively safe from the savages out there...and that it can always be worse.

I pray for you and your family.

Very sincerely,

Hi Bryan,
July 22 is my birthday, and what a great present to hear such good news. You're coming back! You are very, very lucky to have your family and friends. Would love to have you as my EMT; something in me knows that you'll return to the life of giving service.

As a lifelong Dodger fan, I have always enjoyed the rivalry between LA and SF. It has made watching their games so much more enjoyable. But I am downright ashamed that some Dodger fans had to have just stood by and watched as this happened to someone that is such a productive member of society. And it was all over the fact that he is a SF fan. What is wrong with people today???
I wish and pray for Bryan's recovery! One true baseball fan to another. God bless you and watch over you and all your family and friends!

John 14:14-16 If you ask anything in My name, I will do it. We ask in the name of Jesus, that you are healed.
God has all power! When my brother hit a tree on the ski slopes they told us he would not survive through the night, he did! They then said he would never come out of the coma, he did! They then said he would never talk, he did! They said he would be a vegetable, yeah, that is what they said, but he wasn't! Today he is back at work for the Dallas Police Dept! Never, Ever give up! God has all power!
With Love and Support,

I pray for the full recovery of Bryan and also pray for his family. As a former law enforcement officer, I know to well of the "scum bags" that make up a portion of our society. The "axis of evil," is not somewhere over is right here in the USA. The thing that really bothers me, that I have no answer the Dodgers won the game, yet these SCUM BAGS chose to beat Bryan nearly to death. Bryon, you have so many people in your corner...please get well soon!

Thank you LA police...please continue to gather the evidence to put these despicable people away for a long-long time.

Brian and family,
I do not know you, but ever since that horrible day in your life I have thought about you, Brian. My heart goes out to you! I can't express how terrible I feel for you. Sending prayers to you. Don't give up your fight! I had a brother who had brain damage from a surgery gone wrong and I have a nephew that was in a horrible car accident that left him with brain damage. It's very hard on the family as well as you, Brian. I pray that everyday you will get stronger and will be able to do more. I have said prayers for you and will continue. Hopefully, the animals that did this to you will be caought and brought to justice. They need to experience the brutal beating, just as they did to you! They are not even worthy to even be on this earth! Please get better everyday! Keep us all updated on how you're doing!
Sunday, July 24, 2011 5:28 PM
Hi Mrs. Stow! I just wanted you to know that I have been praying for your son ever since I heard about this awful story!

I know he will be ok and home soon with you all. I pray for you as well to have strength during this time. Please know our thoughts and prayers are with you! Take care and God Bless...

To Bryan and his family,
The struggle you're enduring is something familiar to me as a wife of a head injured Postal Worker, and a Physical Therapist. It's been 7 years, and I send my support and prayers for you all.
The "one day at a time" method of survival is always present after your lives were turned upside down. But know that there are folks out here - in Northern California who are paving the way for Bryan's recovery (as well as family support).
I here recently Bryan was given a shunt. Randall (my husband) had one placed 6 months after his injury, and it allowed him to begin the slow recovery from his accident. If Bryan is moving slow-it's ok.
If I can help in any way, please e-mail me, otherwise I add my wishes and prayers for Bryan as well.

It is senseless and heartbreaking and I am looking forward to the day he wakes up and sees what an outpouring of support he is receiving. So much love and so many prayers are most certainly being felt by him and getting him through to recovery. Take care.

Dear Bryan, You are in our thoughts and prayers daily, ever since that fateful day this past Spring wherein two very selfish and ignorant thugs changed the course of your life. I pray (along with your family and friends) for a complete recovery... a miracle... One you so deserve and one we just know you will be blessed with. You are an inspiration to us all and have many people around the Nation behind you. Stay strong, keep fighting and remain cemented in the faith that our Creator will not only spare your life but allow you to return to it - even better and stronger than you could ever imagine. God bless you daily.

I can't wait to hear the opening statement on the Today Show (that's what I watch in the mornings while getting dressed for work) "Giants Fan, Bryan Stow has one this Series!" Bryan I hope I hear that soon! My heart goes out to you and your family. It saddens and scares me that there are people out there that do unnecessary act of violence on others. Now its not safe to enjoy watching a live sports game? What about our kids? We can't take them out? I pray that when you wake up and are fully alert that you wake up to a safer world. There is just no other way! There's MUST be justice for you and your family. I wish you a speedy recovery. I'll admit I'm not a Huge baseball fan, however I am a fan of yours!
Stay Strong Bryan Stow!!

Thanks for the updates. I am speechless. The amount of strength & faith you all have is amazing & I'm sure this is why Bryan is fighting so hard. To be with you all. I get so emotional after reading your post & wonder why I have been so touched by his story. Then I realized that my family & I had to go through something similar where the unknown challenged our patience & faith. We lost my sister & I would love if you can post the playlist from the friend in LA that made you the CD...It seems like it has help you through this process & I will admit that now when I hear these songs I think of my sister & your Bryan...the guy I never meet but I pray for & my heart aches for all that you are enduring. I pray that God gives each & everyone of you strength to continue this fight along with Bryan. Much love & Respect

To The Stow Family,
I have been involved in the game of baseball and baseball operations for over 40 years, several of which at the Major League Level. I have witnessed everything the game has to offer from the greatest triumphs to the worst of unspeakable tragedies, but few stay on my mind as much as your sons terrible injury. It has renewed my passion for making sure my own fans are protected as well as any teams should be, and has reinforced notions around the league that fan safety should and always will be at the forefront of our concerns. On behalf of all of us at The Chicago Cubs Organization, we offer nothing but the warmest condolences and best wishes to you and your family during this time of need. We are constantly checking in on the news of Mr. Stow, and have nothing but positive hopes for his recovery and future. Few feel good stories in the history of baseball can compare to the joy we would feel if Brian overcame his injuries, and that goes the same for any fans harmed or injured at any of America's ballparks. We wish you nothing but the best, and pray for Brians speedy recovery.

Brian and Family,

The heartache that you have endured and continue to endure surely makes no sense. It will never make sense to anyone. How such evil can exist--and how a -good- person should have to suffer so. It's what makes these tragedies all the more difficult to deal with--the "why?" questions. I pray that you will cling to God's truths with each passing day. One day at a time. And that your faith will never waver. You are precious to God. He knows what you are going through. He is close to you.

Stay strong,

Liz from Whittier, CA

West Texas Winds are blowing prayers via the angels to you and to God for your continued recovery. You are on his timetable as we all are, and things are good.

I am positive that you must be overwhelmed with condolences, but on behalf of the paramedics in LA County and Ventura county, we were deeply saddened by the news of Brian's unfortunate event. He is in our thoughts and prayers on a daily basis, and not a day goes by that one of us, if not all are checking on his prognosis. We will continue to monitor his recovery and keep Brian and the Stow family in our Thoughts. Stay strong.

Hey Stow Family thanks for the updates on Bryan's condition, keep them coming. Not a day goes by that I don't think of Bryan and offer a prayer for him. I see pictures of Bryan's children and I feel sad for them. I know all things are possible with God and that Bryan will make a full recovery. This should not have happened and I am thankful that his perpetrators have finally been caught. I just don't understand how people could live with themselves knowing what a heinous crime they had inflicted on another human being. God bless you Bryan, your children and the entire Stow family.

Hey Bryan, Greetings from "WET" West Texas. Thanks to Tropical Storm, Don, we have had some much needed rain today, and the clouds are still hovering around. Everything looks so fresh. I doubt we received 2 or 3/10's, but we will take whatever God sends our way.

I hope you have had a good week, and I check the website daily to see if there are any new news. Whether or not, there's a new report, I consider no news good news. Prayes are being answered, and you just have to remember you are on God's time schedule. He's still driving the ambulance.

Happy Angels, are flying swiftly on the West Texas winds your way and and singing praise for the rain. Gentle vibes, warm thoughts from this part of the world. Georgana

Hi Stow Family! I have never posted a comment on here but check every day for any new updates or pictures. As somone who has been through a public tragedy with a family member, I understand to a certain degree of what you're going through. Stay strong and always have each others backs. I know you have thousands of supporters, but we experienced a certain backlash when people were critical of everything we said or did. Don't let anyone get you down! Unless someone has been in your shoes, judgements like that don't matter. You seem to be a strong foursome..keep it up!

Have been following this tragidy since the begining. Having been in a smilar starting but much more positive outcome than Bryan. I can feel the outrage you guys must feel and when he comes out of this, he might ultimatley feel towards those who have harmed him. You just never know when its "your time", but I pray that he does well. I too was once attacked by a couple of thugs. I was knocked out blindsided and was unconsious, but came too. Was ulitmatley able to identify the attackers and they got serious jail time. Same kind of low life as I'm sure these guys were. Thinking that they are tough just because they can throw there fists and try and intimiate people. God bless and take care.

I have not been on the site for a while but continue to pray everyday for Bryan and all of you. I know that the power of prayer is awesome and finding out that Bryan puckered his lips for vaseline twice was a blessing, cute and wonderful to hear. I know that you all go through ups and downs but I continue to pray that the future holds more ups. God Bless you all and continue to be as positive as you have been. I love the way your family seems to be there for Bryan and each other.

Bryan and family - my thoughts and prayers are with you. Soon after my dad died in a tragic accident, I asked myself on the way to visit my mom at the hospital, why did this happen? At that exact moment, I looked up from the car as my friend(who was driving us to visit my mom at the hospital) and we were exiting Harvey Dr. "Harvey" was my dad's name. The synchronicity of the location of my dad's accident and death on Harvey Drive in Glendale was ironic. At that moment, I felt a higher power was telling me not to ask "why". I have learned since to keep my head up, think positive and no to dwell on the why's but to focus on the present and the possibility of a bright future. I hope Bryan gets well soon. Don't ask why. Just focus on the fact that he is alive and he is here and that every moment with him is important. I would love to visit you and Bryan sometime in the hopes that I could make your time of pain just a little bit easier:)

I know by following this site from the beginning, your family is very strong and full of a lot of love. I believe that those strengths can conquer anything. Bryan has many angels watching over him while he is on this adventure. I believe in Angels the kind that heaven sends. Bryan is surrounded by them and they are his friends. Hope the procedure goes well tonight. Good Night and many prayers sent your way.

I just want to reach out to the entire Stow family and let you know that there is just one more family out here praying for Bryan's recovery. I continue to follow his updates online and feel as if I know him and your family just through an internet site. I wear my bracelet everyday and have had people ask me how they can get one to support the cause. My heart breaks for Bryan and the entire Stow family and I just know that God is watching over Bryan and he will bring him back to you with all of our Faith and Prayers. Keep strong Bryan and continue fighting to be back with your family. It saddens me to know that Matthew has passed away but I really feel in my heart that he is Bryan own personal angel that WILL make him get better. Prayers to the Lee family also.

I log on to your site at least once a week to check on Bryan and discovered such wonderful news today.

We are all praying for Bryan...great to hear that he's passing out kisses.

I have a feeling that there will be many more...heck I think my husband would even allow me to get and give kisses to Bryan :) (he is a Giants fan)

Keep getting strong, there are a lot of strangers who have you in their thoughts.

Hello Stow Family:

Although this is my first post, I have been following Bryan's progress on this site since the beginning. Yesterday was the 23rd anniversary of my partner's accident. When he was 13 years old, he fell off a cliff. He was in a coma for a long period of time with those who loved and supported him praying for a miracle which is exactly what they received. Today he is a remarkable man, whose only visible reminder of that struggle is the scar across his left eyebrow. Although rehabilitation was long and sometimes difficult, he carries with him the reminder how precious life is and how grateful he was for the love and support of those surrounding him. We both continue to pray for Bryan's recovery and for you all to keep your strength, courage and determination for him.

A Hebrew Prayer for Bryan

Mi Sheberakh

May the One who blessed our ancestors --
Patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob,
Matriarchs Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel, and Leah --
bless and heal the one who is ill:
Bryan Stow.

May the Holy Blessed One
overflow with compassion upon him,
to restore him,
to heal him,
to strengthen him,
to enliven him.

The One will send him, speedily,
a complete healing --
healing of the soul and healing of the body --
along with all the ill,
among the people of Israel and all humankind,
without delay,
and let us all say: Amen!

Lord, we pray for rapid and complete recovery of Bryan. We pray that you send your angels to watch over him. Please bless his family during this troubled time. We pray all these things in Jesus Christ's name. - Amen.

Dear Brian,

My best friend was beaten very badly for no reason in 1991 by two youg men as well. Your story brought me to tears and made me remember the incident.

It became very easy for me to distrust and dislike a lot of people afterwards. I sincerely hope and pray, not only for your speedy recover, but that anger and hate don´t become your new neighbors, as they were mine for so long.

There are many good poeple out there that know your pain and wish you the best. You have a beautiful family and all of you will be in our prayers.

I am a HUGE Angels fan and after the 2002 road to the world series I really didn't like the GIANTS, however, I am now a fan and following them for you hopefully they will go all the way and win it for you.

I am so sorry that you experienced this and that these criminals have infringed on our love for the ALL AMERICAN SPORT of baseball.

I also pray for the DA in the prosecution of your attackers! Praying for your doctors to use there hands of God's healing to heal you.

Bryan and the family have been in my prayers since the day this tragedy occurred. Nothing much to say except that I'm so sorry for the pain you're enduring, and it's sad and shameful that a human being of Bryan's caliber is taken from humanity whom he served so generously in his profession. God Bless him and all of you. May the higher powers see fit to restore this man (and his family) to wholeness and peace.

I can not express how happy I am to hear that Brian is making such great progress, so I can only imagine the thrills and joy that you are all experiencing. I feel like we are all family and going through this journey together. Something so small that we take for granted everyday (puckering up for a kiss) has brought tears of joy to many people. Things like this definitly put things into perspective and helps you appreciate the little things in life...I wish nothing but the best for all of you!! Please keep sharing his progress and never stop believing!!!

Let the comfort and peace of the Lord comfort the Stowe Family. I feel such emotion as I scroll through this page and see pictures of Bryan and his family. This story has touched my life in such a way, I couldn't explain it to myself.
In this moment I pray for healing over Bryan's body, from the top of his head to the bottom of his feet- may the healing blood of Jesus come and flow through Bryan. The word of God says " Ask, and you shall receive" there is power in confessing with our lips. Never cease in prayer, be hopeful, and have faith.

God bless you Stowe & extended family and friends.

All of us strangers... looking for the emotion of YOU getting better!!

Come on Bryan you need to be awake to see the Phillies win the world series. My 85 year old Mom, wanted to let you and your family know you are in her Rosary, believe me if any one can get a Miricle it's my Mom, who also is a Phillies phan.
I believe her prayers and Rosary brought my son, (a Giants fan) home safe from Iraq. No matter who we route for, one thing for sure is we are all routing and praying for you. God bless you all and grant you a full recovery.

Hello Bryan and family.
Just wanted to say you are in my prayers and Bryan I hope it is one day very soon when you can hold your children and tell them you love them. I'm the same age as Bryan and a new dad who has been to many ballgames so when I heard about this the first thing I thought about was Bryan and his kids. Bryan, you have many people who love you and are rooting for you - BIG TIME. I can't wait to put on ESPN one day soon and watch you throwing out the first pitch at a Giants game, with the fans cheering your recovery in the background. To Bryan's family, I wish you lots of love & support as what you're going through sounds unimaginable. You are a wonderful family and I can't wait for Bryan to tell you he loves you once again.

I am a huge A's fan and dislike the Yankees (alot) but that does not mean I am going to beat up a Yankee fan within an inch of their life. GOD is working is miracle thru you Bryan.

Stow Family-

You don't have to be a Giants Fan to pray nightly for a Giant recovery. As a Dodger fan I am ashamed, hurt, embarrassed and still in disbelief that another human being can bring so much pain and harm to such a wonderful man and a wonderful family. My family and I have followed and prayed for Bryan and your family daily and we can't wait to see the day when he is able to show the Bryan smile that we have seen so many times on TV and via this blog that can light up anyones day.

Please know that my famiily has made a commitment not to attend another Dodger game until Bryan is home safe with his children by his side and that Justice has prevailed. I make it a point to keep something orange and black in my pocket in his honor and will continue to pray for a healthy and speedy recovery. My prayers and thoughts are always with you.

With all of our Love from Los Angeles!

What your dad did (what a cowered should have to tell his family)

Here, over here, this is the room (what is it daddy?) this is your dads 15 minutes of fame. Come on in family and friends; come see what I’ve done. Sit here, look across the bed at those people. (Who is that man lying there? who are those children? why are they sad?)

It’s what your dad did.

See that little girl, she may not play with him anymore, he might not see her graduate, when she walks down the aisle, he may not be with her. (Why?)

It’s what your dad did.

(And the little boy, him) oh, the boy might not have his dad at the other end to play catch with, or learn to drive with. His dad might not be able to pick him up and give him a hug, or even talk to him about his first girlfriend. (Why, what happened?)

It’s what your dad did.

(Who’s that lady? why is her head in her hands?) That’s the man’s wife; she may not celebrate their next anniversary, or walk hand in hand, or watch the kids grow together. And that older lady, that’s his mother. She may not hear his voice anymore calling to say I love you. None of them may ever hear….…I love you. Many many things may change now. (Why daddy, why)

It’s what your daddy did.

(What did you do? Why, why do these strangers suffer? What did they do to you? Was your 15min. of fame how you wanted it to be? Did it make your life and ours and there’s better? Why? What do I say growing up, how do I explain my dad to others? I guess I’ll get used to always saying…………………………………………………..

……………………………It’s what my daddy did.

Hi Bryan and Stow Family! I am soooo thankful for Bryan's steady recovery. Thinking and praying for you all on a daily basis. I believe justice will prevail and that these cowards, as I like to call them, will see thei day in court.

I know that Bryan is such a good man. His pictures tell a million stories. I ask the Dear Lord to bring Bryan back to his family. I am so happy for Tyler and Tabitha that they were able to connect with their father. God is good so keep the faith.

God Bless you all, with deep love and appreciation for all of your updates.

Such a joy to read this morning of the continued improvements for Bryan. Kisses and words....they are more powerful that one probably ever thought. I can only imagine the absolute joy for all. I am so thankful for Bryan, his children, his amazingly strong, faithful & loving family, and those fortunate enough to be called "friend" by such a wonderful, strong man such as Bryan. I will continue my daily prayers for Bryan's continued improvement and restoration of health and for all his angels who have stood by him, loved him, and prayed for him on what is still just the beginning of his journey. Bryan, you have touched me deeply and I wish you health, peace, love, and happiness. God bless.

Hello Stow Family,
I'am so happy to hear of Bryan's improvements. I have "faith" and continue to pray for him to recover to come home to you all. When I sent you the rosary, I mentioned to place the rosary close to his bedside and you will soon see him slowly recover!!! And yes "all you need is love" Bryan has tons of supporters praying for him and following his improvements. I'm a true believer that "The greatest gift in life is not the material things one has, but its who we have in our lives to share it "with" and that's our Families , Friends and our Faith in GOD. As long as we have love, honor and value for all (3) we don't need anything else, we have it all! Bryan already has the greatest gift of life, and we just need him to recover and come home to see & feel all the love that is waiting for him out here. Stow family, continue to stay strong, support each other, believe and keep your strong faith that GOD will send Bryan home soon. GOD BLESS YOU ALL.......

Even though I do not personally know you I am so happy to hear how much better Brian is doing. I can't wait for the day when he can come home to his children. The road ahead will not be easy but compared to what he has already dealt with and survived so courageously I know he will be back to you. God had heard all of our prayers and think Brian is a true hero and inspiration to never, ever give up. So glad to see this piece of good news and God Bless you all.

Good afternoon Bryan and family. Once again this last week you have shown all of us how strong you can be. It just shows you that LOVE can prevail. You know I believe in Angels the ones sent from above and you have received so many of them surrounding you always. be it your family ,doctors,nurses,medical techs,friends and ones you don't even know. I believe in my heart so strongly you will pull through this fight. So keep up the hard work you are doing and all of us out here will keep the prayers going. Much love to you and your family.

To Bryan and his entire family,
I have never been so moved by a story to contact the family, but I feel compelled do so to here. Being in and from Los Angeles I am so sorry and embarrassed that because of a baseball game, your loved one has had to suffer and fight so hard. The behavior of those who taunted then harmed Bryan are not indicative of our city. I travel often to northern California for business and am reminded of your story every time I land there. I pray that Bryan recovers and is able to smile as big as he does in all the photos you have been kind enough to share with the public. I also pray that those that harmed him receive the punishment they deserve both here and when they have to answer to their maker about their horrific actions. Most importantly is that you know how much your family and Bryan has touched the public. I can't wait till he is able to tell his story on his own.
Sending you and Bryan many prayers and good thoughts,

Hi Bryan and Family!
I want to say to Bryan keep up the good work! As a part of your EMS family I wish that a tsunami of a miracle washes over and your entire family! I don't believe that we have ever met but somehow I feel so connected, weird. Anyway I feel for every single one of you and I keep hoping Bryan wakes up and is back to normal. He sounds like a real character. I hope you all and the rest of the world can enjoy that once again.

To Brian & Family,

Even across the many miles that separate us, your story has moved me. I have been praying for all of you since the day I heard the story on the news. I will continue to pray until Brian is home with the family that loves him so.

All my prayers to you.

To Bryan and his family,

Just these few words to say hello and Bryan I'm always praying for you. I am from Los Angeles and when I attend Dodger games all I do is think of you while I'm sitting at the game. I wish you/family the best and with all the love, support and prayers, you will improve. Be strong Bryan you can do it! Always in my thoughts.

I just read your blog. It's amazing that he is doing so well and my thoughts are with your family. I'm an L.A. fan and I still cannot believe that this happened. Hate should never be pulled into a sport because someone likes a different team. I cried along with the rest of America. I am so sorry for what has happened to Bryan but your high spirits and positive outlook are very admirable. I will continue to keep your strong family in my prayers, and I'll continue to check the blog for updates. Keep your head up, Bryan seems to be a very strong person.

To Brian and Family ~
God bless you for keeping your faith and your strength during this time! Your incredible grace and presence is beyond amazing. I will lift Brian and family up in prayer, believing God is The One Who can turn impossible into probable. I pray you will feel the many thousands of hands covering you in prayer; lifting Brian up for healing.

I was born and raised in Southern California, please accept my sincerest apologies that this happened to Brian here. My prayers will be focused on healing for Brian and God's great goodness on your family and friends. But I also pray that the cowards who did this will be brought to justice. Psalm 120:6 "Too long has my soul had its dwelling with those who hate peace."

Psalm 121... "My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to slip; He who keeps you will not slumber."

To Bryan's Family & Friends,
I'm so sorry to hear of this latest setback on Bryan's long road to recovery. As a fellow Santa Cruz resident, GIANTS fan and human being I can't help but sympathize and follow each and every development in his horrific story of brutal, unnecessary violence. I still find it hard to believe that this even happened to Bryan at an opening day baseball game, yet this weekend's violence at Candlestick at an *exhibition* football game demonstrates that we are living in different times now, and so policies must change to deal with the cold hard realities of these times. My thoughts are and will be with you all as your ordeal continues. I hope that someday soon Bryan smiles at you and that his recovery goes on from there. Best wishes. -Deb

Hey Bryan-I hope you are continuing to recover from your infections. You are still making good progress, and whether it's steps forward or steps back, the ones backward are only temporary. God is still driving the ambulance and watching over your daily condition. You will get through this. Angels are sitting on your shoulders and singing his love for you.

Still extreme heat in West Texas, but this, too, shall pass on God's schedule.
Prayers on the wings of Angels coming on the West Texas winds to you and to God in heaven. Gentle vibes-Georgana

To Bryan, his family and friends, I'm praying and sending my love to you from Kansas. Stay strong and keep pushing Bryan to fight his way back from these infections and set backs. Also remember to look up to God with every little need and don' t forget Matt has his wings wrapped around Bryan for added support. This sight shows how we can come together to show support and show that most of us baseball fans are good people. I found your site after seeing Bryan's name go across the bottom of the tv while watching my team Red Sox on ESPN, and look for myself how he has been doing, just let me say I have looked at great pictures, read amazing thoughts and have cried for over 2 hours for you and Matt's families ( I even had to look up on what happened to Matt I am so very very sorry). Will check back soon and will keep praying!!!!!

Hey Bryan and family, You know the way I look at it is, sometimes you need a couple steps back before you can get to that next level. So heres to praying that your next level of recovery is coming up. We think of you everyday and speak of your recovery with friends often. It makes me ill about the violence that to place last weekend. You would of thought that by what happen to you, it would of open some eyes of sport goers. I think that because we have a lot of big named sport teams in the bay area that we need to set an example and have some kind of plan to stop violence at our sporting events. It should be something like "NO TOLERANCE FOR VIOLENCE IN SPORTS.." I can sadly say that it makes me think twice about taking my son to any kind of game. This is not the message we want to send our children. You don't have to be playing for the team, for it to be BAD SPORTSMANSHIP. Well enough about that. Bryan stay STRONG. i'm looking forward to the day you will be at the AT&T park throwing the game ball. Much love and hugs to you and your family. You are always in our hearts.

o8VGDear Stow Family, I am praying for ALL of you as you travel down this road. The Lord is watching over each and every one of you and does hear our prayers. Being the mother of a 26 year old son, I can sympathize to a degree with you, Mrs. Stow. When my son was 22 yrs old (2007) he was stabbed 7 times. 3 x in the chest, puncturing both lungs, twice in his upper right shoulder area severing the main artery in his shoulder, and 2 defense wounds on his left forearm. I nearly lost him, but after 7 hours of surgery and 12 units of blood and by the GRACE OF GOD, to look at him today you would not know that he nearly died 4 years ago. I am praising God daily for his mercy for my son's life and I am praying daily for your son to be restored to you as well.

nTo Bryan & The Stow Family, Even though I haven't had the pleasure to meet you guys personally, hearing this story touched my heart deeply and Bryan and his whole family will remain in my prayers! Bryan has proven to be a fighter and everyday I believe in my heart he will remain a fighter, he has beautiful kids to come home too and that alone would give anyone the strength to fight. Bryan Stow is not only a hero, he is a father, brother, son, grandson,friend, he is alot of people's someone. Thank god they found the people who did this unthinkable crime. Keep FIGHTING Bryan!

A hero is some one looked up to
Who others may love to be
A hero never loses hope
To be hero means to be courageous and Bryan Stow definately has showed courage!

Hi, just want to tell Brian's family that I have been following the news since the incident happened and my heart goes out to you his family. you are doing a great job staying next to him all this time putting your own life on hold to take care of a loved one, Brian is very blessed and I know that the Lord will make him stronger and he will come out victorious at the end and will use this experience to help other people. I pray for his 2 kids, God bless their little hearts, they must be going through a lot. I HEARD YESTERDAY THAT BRIAN HAS A UTI RIGHT NOW AND I WANTED TO SUGGEST SOMETHING THAT I USED LAST YEAR TO GET RID OF A UTI THAT I HAD ON AND OFF FOR A YEAR ITS CALLED D-MANOSE, YOU CAN GOOGLE IT AND YOU WILL FIND A LOT OF GOOD COMMENTS ABOUT, ITS A GREAT ALTERNATIVE TO ALL THESE DANGEROUS DRUGS, YOU CAN FIND IT AT WHOLE FOODS. HOPE IT HELPS. WISHING BRIAN AND YOU, HIS FAMILY THE BEST. GOD BLESS.

It is my privilege to be kind. It is my honor to help. Thank you Bryan. Thank you Stow family. Thank you good people everywhere.

I wanted to let the family know that I agree with you about what happened at the preseason football game against 49ers and Raiders. I too thought what happened to Bryan would wake up everyone at sports events. It is for family and I hate to see this happening too.
Bryan and the stowe family are in my prayers , I'm glad he is moouthing words and that proves he is being aware that he knows who all you are around him. I'm also happy to read that everyone in the family are getting kisses from him and nobody is getting jealous LOL.. keep up the work Bryan you are always in my thoughts and prayers..

"Because he had such a huge step backwards we are hoping he will get back to mouthing "I LOVE YOU"!! On three separate occassions, Bryan told us that he loved us."
I know this did not include us, but we like to think it did. We love you too, Bryan. Don't give up because we won't give up on you. We NEED you! God bless you and remember we love you too.

I had a very rough last week when my husband told be Bryan was not doing so well I just broke down. He is my heart and spirit's solemate. I was shot after a Giants-Met's game in the Parking lot at Candlestick Park in 1978. His ordeal has brought so much past and present up in my life. I am sending positive thoughts every day to him. To hear the good news makes my week I will continue to support his in my sole always. Love to hear the good news and can't wait to hear more. I know you know it's a rollercoaster ride for sure. Best to him and his wonderful supportive family.

Very sorry to hear about Bryans injuries and hope he recovers quickly.

I've suffer from headaches my whole life. When I get one, it feels like my whole head is ready to explode, extremely painful. I have a difficult time trying to imagine what type of pain/discomfort Bryan is in.

I'm wondering if you can talk more about his medical needs/surgeries on this website so perhaps some of us can learn something of what Bryan is going through.

I have a few questions and hope you will answer them.

How much of his skull did they remove and what did they do with it? Do they save it to replace it later or do they throw it away?

How bad were his seizures? What were they like?

What level of consciouness is he in?

Does Bryan complain of pain?

Thankyou and hope Byan recovers completely fully and quickly.

Hello Bryan, I would like u and ur family to know that MIRACLES DO HAPPEN!!! I know it might not be 2 marow but it will happen. I also would like 2 tell u all that i went 2 ur home page with Bryans pic on it, and i Prayed 2 god out loud "Please God sent ur medical angles to his side and carrie him through this time, bring him back to his children and to his family". I would also like 2 share some miracles that happened in my life When God Stepped In And Saved Me and My Family. One day my dad was in church listening 2 the pastor when a voice came 2 hime and told him I will always take care of u and ur family. A few years later my dad was working stripping a mobile home when that same voice came 2 him and said,"Leave the bath tub." my dad knew that was for a reason, a few minutes later down came the roof which had blowen the man he was workuing will out of the house, when my dad came 2 he saw the roof on him and his leg next to his head. When my dad looked around all that was HOLDING the ROOF was the BATH TUB. today he is okay from that. I have more about miracles in my family. I WANT U ALL 2 KNOW ME AND MY HUSBAND ARE ALWAYS PRAYING FOR BRYAN AND U ALL!! GOD BLESS U AND NEVER NEVER LOSE FAITH! GOD BLESS U ALL.
