Young Survivors

An especially poignant note about a near-death experience and recovery of some young fans:

I just wanted to drop you a line to give you and Ruth a big thank you.  From July 29, 2012 to September 14, 2012, your MAN WOMAN WILD show kept me company during the vigil at my youngest child's bedside. On July 29, 2012 my son, Jake and my daughter, Sarah were in a near fatal car accident. Jake had his entire left side busted up and broken, and Sarah had a diffuse anoxal brain injury (she was in a coma for 22 days). Your show always gave me something to talk about to her; when she woke up and wanted to watch Netflix she picked MAN WOMAN WILD every time.

Jake was just starting bull riding when he got in the accident; he has fully recovered and is bull riding again. He's been accepted to Bozeman MSU and will be studying AG business. Sarah went from having her entire left side paralyzed and having to learn to walk again; she's a sophomore this year and is in the speech and drama club. They told us she would be a vegetable, but she has fully recovered with only short term memory issues she calls brain fluffs. She has a gray sense of humor; she says she has the memory of a gold fish, attention span of a knot, and the bladder of a squirrel.

Thanks so much for doing what you do. You and Ruth are A number 1 in my book.
