The following is from Road 2 Recovery...
The Road 2 Recovery Foundation is accepting donations for Rockstar Valli-Star Racing Yamaha team rider Ryan Morais who was injured at the Los Angeles Supercross race on January 22, 2012. Ryan's injuries were very substantial with fractured C1 C2 C6-7 T1, broken ribs, and broken upper and lower jaw.
As of January 25th, Ryan has had surgery to align his jaws and his mouth is wired for the next 8 weeks. Ryan will be wearing a C collar is keep his neck stable, but will have to wait 6-8 weeks to have surgery. He is out of the ICU and his family hopes he will be able to come home in the next week. 4 1/2 months ago Ryan's wife Hannah gave birth to their son Krue. Hannah is still on maternity leave and was expecting to go back to work in a few weeks. Ryan does have health insurance but the hospital they are at is out of network for them.
