It is hard to believe that one month has passed since Kevin’s fight got started. After 5 days in intensive care at Hahnemann, 20 more at Jefferson and now 6 at Magee, it is hard to imagine the long road ahead. But each step down the path is one closer to Kevin living his life to the fullest.
Not too much has changed since our last update. The staff at Magee has been tremendous helping us all adjust in the first few days. We have a meeting next Thursday with Kevin’s full team of doctors, nurses and other staff to help evaluate and plan for his next steps. As these meetings happen throughout the rehab process we will keep you posted. Each meeting will bring a clearer picture of Kevin’s short term needs and long term outlook.
Many of you have asked how to help, where to send donations and the like. I don’t have an answer just yet but we are working with an attorney to make sure we set up an entity that will provide Kevin what he will need long term. We will also have a better sense of what some of his short and long term needs will be when we have more information from our team meeting at Magee and some feedback from different State resources.
I’m sure many of you have seen the benefit for Kevin, the first of several, that will be held on February 4th from 6 – 9. Matt Luttrell has been pulling all of this together. If you are interested in helping out please shoot him and email at firstname.lastname@example.org. A special thank you to Jess Ewing for designing the poster!
There are a handful of other events that people have offered to host. As these take shape we will post the information right here. Thank you to everyone helping with these events!

Again, thank you all for reading this website, praying for Kevin and our family, stopping in to see him and all the other little things, too numerous to mention, that you all have done.
Stay tuned for another update Thursday or Friday.
Thanks so much for your good work keeping everyone up to date.
It is a month that has been so fast and so slow at the same time…..through it all, the Neary gentlemen have been such an inspiration to me, and to so many people.

Thank You for the Kevin update. Good to know about the fundraisers and ways in which we all can help. I, like many others, are with you in thought and prayer. May the days ahead at Magee bring a steady positive progress.
There is only one solution and that is that the polpee who understand that a sound economy relies on a sound ecology stick together and create pockets of ecological sanity and freedom. Most of those pockets will eventually be crushed by the insane masses or their own mismanagement. Some may survive and are the only hope for a human future. There is no turning back in time, there is only going forward. Let go of the past Kevin and think evolution.
Thank you for keeping us updated! We continue to be inspired by Kevin’s strength and dignity. What an amazing human being!
I hope you don’t mind me posting since I don’t know you personally, but I know your Aunt Laura, through my mom. I feel the need to follow this story b/c Kevin sounds like a sensational human being and it sounds like if anyone can get through this – he can. You all are doing a wonderful job supporting him. You can tell there is much love here! Thank you for the updates, he truly is an inspiration and I can’t wait to hear when this guy is put away for what he did!!
