AeroShell Aerobatic Team Lead Alan Henley was injured in July 2008 in an accident while playing with his children at his home in Birmingham, Alabama. A chin-up bar gave way while he was on it, resulting in a fall that left him paralyzed from the chest down.
He spent more than three months at the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s trauma unit and has undergone many surgeries and battled collateral infections and complications from his injury. He continues to undergo extensive rehabilitation. Insurance has helped cover the costs of his treatment, but recently the family learned that those benefits may be soon cut off, forcing them to find other means of not only supporting Alan’s rehabilitation and medical care, but daily living expenses as well.
He has a new doctor and some new opportunities, but funds are limited and donations are being accepted. You can make a donation to the Alan Henley Fund at NAAT.net or at CaringBridge.org/visit/AlanHenley. These contributions are not tax deductible, but will go directly to Henley and his family for expenses.
