Oh, boy, get your tissues ready. I just received the final update from Bensten Schone’s family, and spoiler alert: it’s a good one.
If you hadn’t heard, six-year-old Bensten was seriously injured in a sledding accident back in January. His family started a hashtag, #pray4bman, that went viral across the region. A ton of people, especially Bensten’s fellow Caps fans, sent words of encouragement to B-man and his family.
With Bensten now home and on the long road to full recovery, his family posted a YouTube video recapping the incredible journey the family has been on for the past few weeks. It includes many of your tweets and photos. It’s so inspiring and a great reminder of what an amazing community we have as Caps fans.
Lance and Heather Schone write:
As we have said over and over again, there are no words to thank you for supporting us through these past few months. The night we arrived at INOVA, the trauma doctors told us we were in for a roller coaster ride. No truer words have ever been spoken. But thanks to YOU, we are still standing.
My awesome brothers documented much of the journey, and made this video. We wanted to send it to you to show our appreciation, and so that you can see just how far we have come, thanks to all of your support. We wanted to try and reach you all directly, so that you can see just how much your support has helped our entire family.
Way to go, guys.
