Kayaker and manager of 4 Corners Riversports Tony Meily was involved in a serious ATV accident on Friday and will likely lose his right hand as a result. He was flown to Denver to try to save his hand and will be there for more than a week - had over a dozen hours of surgery.

This will cost a lot! Not to mention therapy and some sort of cool luke skywalker robot hand so he can still kayak. Please help if you have the means.

Also there is an open facebook event to bring meals when they return to Durango here: Login | Facebook

Devastating news and all my heart goes out to the Miely family. Tony is one of the most stand up and well liked individuals in the p-sports community and I can only find solace in the amount of support and love he will find from his friends when he returns home.
Praying for a speedy and smooth recovery for you and Tina.

As much as Tina appreciates the thoughtfulness of people cooking for them she is not ready to deal with that just yet. Let's let them get settled back in Durango whenever that may be and then she will let us know if and when she wants extra meals.

I am at the hospital with Tony and his family and have been passing along everyones thoughts and prayers as they come in. Tony is a strong one and will remain that way, he will get through this. Thanks for everyones thoughts and prayers. Luke

Tony,
the only thing that can counter my extreme sorrow for your accident is the knowledge that you are an incredible person and have what it takes to power through this in the same confident and inspiring way you do everything in your life. My thoughts are with you and your family and I wish you the best.

TonyM Checkin' in

Hello All You Buzzards! I have never been great typing but this 1 hand thing is going to take some time. First off, Thank you all for you support! I was in a Rhino ATV that rolled over, I was a passenger and had my right hand on a metal grab handle when it rolled. I have lost most of my right hand, but I should have use of my wrist and may have a stub of a thumb. I do happen to be a lefty, so i got that going for me. I spent the last week in Denver ICU, i have been through 4 surgeries and have another monday, hopefully the last for a while. I am out of ICU and in a regular room. This has been and will continue to bethe biggest challenge life has ever thrown me, I am trying to look at the positives, i have my legs, i have my mind, i have the best support on the planet from all of you, my wife Tina, my family, and my determination. I know I have a long road but i am still here and i will boof again!Thank you all, I will be on her updating more. Thank you all! Tony Miely 4CRS

Sorry to hear about your accident man, that's too bad... I hope all is well, and if i could i'd donate myself, but i'm in almost the same boat as you. And i know that no matter what it's going to work out, and it will for you too.
