Zach Miller

I'm not normally "that guy" but I know Zach from various CrossFit competitions in which I have been a competitor/volunteer/judge and know him to be a stand-up guy and an excellent athlete.

It humbles me to report that he was seriously injured in a car accident last week and is currently in ICU. A link to a blog about it (wfs):
http://zachjmiller.com/

A fund has been established for him to help his family move closer to him during this time, in addition to other costs associated with his recovery. wfs-
https://www.wepay.com/donate/59697

If you don't want to send money - you can always send a card to the hospital:

ATTN: Zach Miller
Trauma Unit Room 15
Allegheny General Hospital
320 East North Ave
Pittsburgh, PA 15212

[FYI- they cannot accept anything by mail accept cards. No flowers allowed in ICU.]

Best wishes to you and your family for a speedy and full recovery, Zach.

Re: Zach Miller

bump

a bit of news excerpted from the wfs blog

http://zachjmiller.com/

Quote:
I got another update from Sam last night. Not much has changed with Zach’s condition. He is still listed as critical, but the threat from the swelling has subsided, at least for now. He’s had two more successful procedures in the past few days. They’re tackling the issues one by one… all successfully.

The main concern at the moment is the brain injury. It’s very severe and difficult to treat… but it’s not impossible to recover from.

Re: Zach Miller

Thanks for the bump, Emily. I posted on his FB page, but so far no news.
I'll try to contact dome friends in Pittsburgh to see if they know anything.

Re: Zach Miller

update from Zach's FB page:

Quote:
Those of you who have been following our friend Zach's status, my apologies for not posting in some time.
We've been waiting for any significant changes to his status and dealing with a couple individuals who can only be described as a pestilence.
That said, our friend is doing well. All vital signs are solid. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.
And PLEASE DO NOT give any money to any individuals in his name. There are 2 links perviously established that will ensure funds are protected for Zach Miller.
Thank you.

Re: Zach Miller

Are there any updates on Zach? I've been out of the country and out of touch with technology. Also is there anyplace I can monitor (blog, site, etc?)

Hoping for good news and keeping the faith.

Thanks - Stanley

Re: Zach Miller

Stanley and everyone-

I have no news to add, unfortunately.
Other than the fact that a few more people have created some new ways to help contribute to his family - for what must be astronomical medical bills - I have heard no sign of improvement in his condition from my friends in Pittsburgh, nor anything written on his facebook page.

Stay strong, Zach, we miss you brother.

Sean.

The following link is the official contribution site -wfs:

https://www.wepay.com/donate/59697

the following are also wfs links to some new fund raising efforts (I make no claim in knowing the proprietors or the amounts that go to Zach or his family in these new endeavors)

http://www.i-wod.com/2012/01/13/all-...-wod-for-zach/

Note that the following event already took place, but you may want to keep an eye on it, if he does another show again in the future-
