Kevin Babington Update: Funds still needed for treatment

first_imgFor the many of you who contact me regularly and are aware of Silver Oak’s involvement in Kevin’s recovery I’m sending this, another update, to be transparent and efficient. I must start by telling you the patience, valor, kindness to all around him, and outright tenacity Kevin exhibits every day is beyond inspiring. He is concerned about everybody other than himself. In short, it’s the Kevin we always knew albeit dealing with an extraordinary challenge.Kevin and Dianna remain very much immersed in this sport in every way caring for clients, growing their sales and training business and lending their considerable expertise everywhere in the sport possible. Kevin continues to make physical progress and in fact Diana and Kevin just returned from the Mayo clinic. Based on his considerable progress and overall health he has been entered into a very limited stem cell trial for the month of April at the Mayo clinic, one of a dozen such individuals. The first such trial saw a shocking percentage of the participants regain considerable mobility.Through all this nobody has heard Kevin complain, his continual comments to me amplify his concern for everybody around him never speaking a word about his discomfort which is considerable. The monumental patience, focus, and aptitude to see the big longer-term picture is staggering. His dedication to his physical therapy has mystified his doctors.Our community has continued to come forward financially supporting the considerable cost of his care. The trial at the Mayo clinic will not be covered by insurance and continued donations to one of either the Babington Family Trust or the Babington Foundation are still very much needed. Even small donations add up and those are best made to: The Babington Family Trust with checks sent to: PO Box 771 Gwynedd Valley, PA – 19437 or you can donate via GoFundMe.

Weekend Poll Top Three: As You Wish! Fans Want Aaron Tveit to Play Westley in The Princess Bride on Stage

first_img View Comments 3. Justin Matthew Sargent – 15% As your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, Sargent rescues Mary Jane Watson from atop the Chrysler Building and from Arachne’s cocoon eight times a week, so battling every terror in the Fire Swamp should be a breeze for the former Rock of Ages and Bonnie & Clyde star. Also, if anyone can make a cadaverous Westley still seem pretty hot—it’s definitely JMS. 2. Corey Cott – 18% He’s the king of New York, after all! Cott is a pro at playing the witty, street smart and rebellious Jack Kelly in Newsies, so he would have no trouble channeling the natural-born leader energy required to pull off Westley. If he can lead the NYC newsboys strike of 1899, then he can assuredly lead Inigo and Fezzik into Humperdinck’s castle to stop the wedding. 1. Aaron Tveit – 34% Tveit already played the wild and beautiful Enjolras in the Les Miserables film and lead the insurrection at the barricade—so it’s easy to imagine him wielding another sword to fight for the love of his life. The heartthrob has appeared on Broadway in Wicked, Next to Normal and Catch Me If You Can, and has made TV audiences swoon on Graceland and Gossip Girl. Disney recently announced that William Goldman’s cult classic film The Princess Bride is headed to the stage, and because the Mouse House is behind a few of Broadway’s biggest hits, we can’t wait to see what they do with the story of Buttercup, Westley, Inigo Montoya, Prince Humperdinck, Vizzini, Fezzik and more! Broadway.com reached out to our readers to find out who they would like cast in the role of brave and beloved farm boy Westley. The votes are in! Find out which Broadway vets fans hope head to lands of Florin and Guilder.last_img read more
