Gladwin boy continues to fight after dirt bike accident


Brevyn Willford’s eyes light up when he hears talk of his family and friends as the 12-year-old continues to fight to recover from a dirt bike accident.

“He’s a fighter,” said his dad Kory who along with his wife, Kim, have stayed with their son.

“I can’t leave him, I’m his cornerman,” said Willford’s father and wrestling coach.

It’s been more than 45 days since Willford suffered a dirt bike crash near a high jump. Kory suspects there was a malfunction with the bike or something. He said his son’s athleticism is what is helping him fight, noting that Willford is active in wrestling, 4-H, baseball and football.

Willford was helicoptered from his Gladwin home to Covenant Healthcare – Saginaw where he was in a coma for many days before being transferred to Mary Free Bed in Grand Rapids.

Kim, a nurse, wrote on her Facebook page that her son recently had four hours of therapy and was in quite a bit of pain but seems more aware of his surroundings. She said he was having muscle contractions and was calmed by holding her fingers. Just prior to the accident, Kim started a new job and her insurance had not kicked-in yet.

The family is appreciative to all the people who have rallied for their son and them, raising money and sending well wishes.

Kory said area farmers, including Aaron Richie, Nate Shea, B Warner, Bruce Hill and Mike McCulloch, have tended to their own crops and then to his row crop farm. He said their help has allowed him to be with his son.

He said people have also gotten together to help him pay his Heinz Propane bill, so that they can continue to dry the corn on the farm.

The family was also touched by the many fundraisers — wrestlers as far away as Florida have donated to Willford’s plight, some who have wrestled with Willford and others who don’t even know him.

The family is grateful for the donations and ask that people continue to pray for their son’s healing and full recovery. To donate via Facebook, visit
