On June 26, 2010, enroute to a youth baseball tournament in Norwich, Kansas, Carl Hall, age 39, his family and a family friend were involved in a single-vehicle rollover accident. Thankfully his wife and children were uninjured; the family friend suffered a gash on her leg requiring stitches.
However, Carl sustained traumatic neck injury and paralysis due to compression of his spinal cord. He was rushed to the hospital in critical condition, and placed on a ventilator to enable him to breathe.
The response and support of family, friends and community to this tragic occurrence have been immediate and gratifying. One of twelve children of Jack and Louise Hall and a lifelong resident of the Wichita area, Carl is also well-known in the community for his athletic achievements as a member of the Wichita State Shockers baseball team during the 1990s and his involvement in coaching activities since then. He, his wife Stacey and their four children are parishioners at St. Peter Catholic Church in Schulte.
The Purpose of This Website
The generosity, love and support of family, friends, medical staff and members of the community have already begun to help Carl as he embarks on the recovery and healing process. His condition has been upgraded from critical to serious and some signs of sensation have been noted. We are grateful for every improvement, no matter how small.
The journey to recovery is likely going to be a long one for Carl and his family. The medical and other expenses associated with his treatment and ongoing rehabilitation have the potential to create a huge financial burden for Carl and Stacey. We want to help alleviate that burden and allow them to focus on bringing Carl back home to his family.
Many of you have asked how you can help and that is the reason we've created this website. It provides a means to contribute to the Carl Hall Family Benefit Fund that has been established at INTRUST Bank in Wichita. Other informational links will be added with time.
Thank you for your support and contributions. They are greatly appreciated.
