UPDATE: APRIL 2010
With the one-year anniversary of Scott's accident coming up soon on May 10th, now is a good time to look back on what he has accomplished since his fateful day in the desert.
Scott remains wheelchair-dependent to get around but is able to stand up on his own and take short walks around his house and rehab center on his own and with the aid of an upright walker. In therapy he has been able to walk up and down the stairs of his house, lie on his stomach, and stand for extended periods while doing exercises. Click on the Facebook, Flickr and YouTube icons on this page to see new videos and photos of the remarkable progress of his recovery.
In January 2010, he opened his new Hussong's Cantina and Taqueria in The Shoppes at Mandalay Place to thunderous applause from family, friends and well-wishers as he took his first steps in public, walking from the entrance to the first seat at the bar. In November 2009, his Titan Nightlife Group also opened a new nightclub called AiRIA inside the Wild Horse Pass Resort and Casino in Chandler, Arizona outside of Phoenix.
Presently Scott and Megan Powell are working on launching this summer the Spinal Injury Recovery Foundation (SIRF), a non-profit foundation dedicated to serving as the leading resource for new victims of spinal cord injury and their loved ones by educating them on their injury, informing them of choices regarding rehabilitation inside and outside of Las Vegas, and empowering them to manage their recovery. The foundation is accepting tax-deductible donations. More details on SIRF will be posted here, Facebook and on the SIRF website as they become available.
On May 20, 2009 he was transferred to Desert Canyon Rehabilitation Hospital (DCRH) where he spent 70 days receiving very high quality care and intensive therapy. Because of Scott's hard work, DCRH's expert care, and unwavering support from family and friends, the medical director and staff acknowledged that his progress was nothing short of phenomenal. They also cautioned that it will be months, if not years, before he regains most of his original abilities.
On July 27, 2009, Scott was released from DCRH and returned to his Henderson home for the first time since his accident. He continues to receive therapy there and at outpatient facilities, and operates his Titan Nightlife business from home and the firm's Las Vegas office.
Donations Still Gratefully Accepted
The costs for Scott's medical treatment and rehabilitation are substantial, but the generosity of his family, friends and well-wishers through donations of money, time and other resources have made a huge difference. Online fundraising and special events have generated more than $50,000 towards his recovery. Donations are very much appreciated and can be made through the DONATIONS page of this website.
Several methods have been set up to accept donations of cash and services to help Scott recover financially. Please click on the DONATE button below to go to the Donations webpage to choose your method of payment.
