Ron Polivka and his wife Marcene have attended North American Martyrs from the beginning back in the “Ramada” days. Their daughter’s Jenny McNeese and Geena Mehl and their families also belong to Martyrs.
On March 10th, Ron was moving dirt with his Bobcat and suffered a broken neck when the bucket came down on him. There are very few survivors of this type of neck break and it took 3 surgeries to repair. He had to be life flighted to Bryan West trauma Center and was in ICU for 2 weeks before moving to Select Services, which is a transition to acute care rehab.
Ron and his family face many challenges ahead adjusting to such life altering circumstances. He lost his hearing, his vision is compromised due to damage to cranial nerve 6 and 8 and cannot take more than 50 steps. He also has no swallow reflex and may face tube feeding indefinitely. He faces a long road of acute care rehab.
Come support Ron and his family at this year’s Witness Through Fitness.
