This month we were featured on "Michigan Medicine's" page as we attended a survival flight reunion event to share our story! Read about it below!
FLIGHT REUNION: In 2010, Ryan Finneran was on the way to a baseball tournament in Detroit when his car was T-boned. He was unconscious as the Jaws of Life were used to remove him from the vehicle before a Survival Flight crew airlifted him to U-M Health C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital.
Ryan spent 17 days in a coma and woke up in the hospital with a traumatic brain injury. He excelled through inpatient rehab and continued his recovery at home. It required more time and attention to regain some basic skills, but the native of South Lyon, Mich., did not give up. Around two years later, he began to feel like his former self.
Ryan is now married and has a young child. His journey and care at Mott inspired his younger brother, Matthew, to pursue a degree in the neuroscience graduate Ph.D. program at U-M. Matthew is committed to finding interventions to improve TBI care and his work currently focuses on regeneration after damage to the central nervous system.
Recently, the entire Finneran family visited Survival Flight to tour the facility, talk about philanthropy and recount Ryan’s remarkable journey. Check out Ryan and Matthew's full story: https://michmed.org/DmQGM. Hail!
