Injured FB Keith Greer Continues His Fight
Greer had been intensive care at Harborview since Aug. 31 when he developed Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome after surgery to repair his broken right leg. He initially was listed in critical condition. He was upgraded to serious on Sept. 10 as he continued to make progress.
Last weekend, he gradually was removed from a ventilator as he began to breathe on his own.
Greer's family would like to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers. A fund has been set up for Greer and his family. Donations to the Keith Greer Benefit Fund can be made at any FirstBank branch or via mail to the Moscow branch at:
201 S. Jackson Street
Moscow, Idaho, 83843
They also can be made at the Boise branch, which is located at 1412 W. Idaho Street.
A NATION SPEAKS
Below is a link to the Spokesman Review article that appeared last Saturday morning, which was pasted to our message board. If you go to the link, you will find a mostly complete list of well wishings from around the country. The outpouring has been remarkable, extending from California to Illinois, and Iowa to Alabama.
Our own region (particularly Boise State, Washington State and Washington), in concert with the Vandal family, are all pulling for Keith and his family for his rapid and complete recovery.
Below is the link to the story (I've added a few of the messages from around the nation below).
Thank you to everyone for your thoughts and prayers.
