Brian Mislansky update and thanks

DAILY NEWS STAFF REPORT

Since sustaining his injuries on April 19, Brian has made incredible progress at St. Anthony Central Hospital and is slated to be released sometime in mid- to late-May. He has had three successful hip surgeries and a clean amputation of his left leg, just above the knee, and is now participating in physical therapy. Brian’s dog, Lulu, was found alive under the same debris some eight days later and without harm. That wonderful news gave Brian and all involved a much-needed boost in spirits and energy.

Brian came to live in Breckenridge after finishing college and moving here from Cleveland in 1998, and worked for Four Seasons Lodging in Breckenridge as a property manager for his first six years here. In the fall of 2004, he started work as a van driver for Good Times Adventures, and the following summer opened Breckenridge Paintball with three co-workers, a business also operated on Good Times’ property. At the time of the incident, Brian was living in an apartment located on the second floor of the Good Times’ building.

Brian and his family would like to thank everyone involved in his rescue from the debris on April 19, including individuals from the Red, White and Blue Fire Department, Flight for Life, St. Anthony Central Hospital, and the multitude of incredible friends and strangers involved in the ordeal. Brian has started his physical therapy and has begun to move with the aid of walkers and wheelchairs. He has a long road to recovery and a lot to learn and to overcome in the upcoming months, and he hopes to do this in Summit County, surrounded by his visiting immediate family and his family of friends.

A relief fund for Brian has been set up at Bank of the West in Frisco. Any donations are greatly appreciated and can be dropped off or sent to any Bank of the West location. Donations need to be made to the Brian Mislansky Relief Fund, and can be mailed to Bank of the West, P.O. Box 908 in Breckenridge, Colo. 80424. Brian will need all the help he can get as he tries to regain an active lifestyle. Please keep an eye out for various benefits in the coming months to benefit the Brian Mislansky Relief Fund as well.

Brian would like to thank everyone again for their support and prayers.
