Sort 4 Survival 2017 a Benefit for Coy Campbell. Meet Coy: On Tuesday, October 4, 2016, Coy Campbell was severely injured when the 4-wheeler he was riding on failed. Along with a C-5 burst fracture in his neck, Coy had fractures in his ribs, eye socket and pelvis, and a broken collarbone. His first 3 weeks were spent at Mercy Medical Center in Redding. On October 27, he was transferred to Santa Clara Valley Medical Center in San Jose, where he spent 3 weeks in the Rehab Trauma Unit, where the focus was ventilator weaning. He then transferred over to the Spinal Cord Injury Unit, focusing on physical and occupational therapies. He worked daily on flexibility, range of motion, balance, and skills like feeding himself. After 4 weeks of therapy, Coy was discharged and got to come home. We are glad to be together as a family, but it is exhausting to be on our own without nursing staff to help with the care Coy needs, ranging from feeding to dressing and using a lift for bed to chair transfers, as well as raising our rambunctious 3 year old. He has almost no use of his hands, so every task is an extreme challenge. Coy goes to Enloe Outpatient Rehab 2-3 days each week for physical and occupational therapy.
Coy was born and raised in Weed, CA, where he grew up hunting, fishing and riding horses and quads. He was a lineman for PG&E for over 11 years. He is married to Jessica Jorgensen Campbell, a Capay native and Adult Education teacher for the Corning Union High School District. They have an amazing 3 year old who is imaginative and fun, if not wild! He is adjusting fairly well to his dad's new situation, but it is not easy.
