10/20/16 UPDATE - 

The last few days have been deep recovery for Scotty after going through the successful back surgery.  As excited as we are to get him to the recovery stage it's going to take a little time for sure.  Thankfully we have three great rehab facilities competing to earn his care and they are all great options for many reasons.  We have been waiting on Neuro and Plastic surgeons to determine a date for Scotty's next surgery and it appears that all will be ready by this Monday.  Scotty is excited for this to be completed as the skull fracture is actually hindering his ability to breath through his nose.  Scotty won't be cruising through any metal detectors soon as the surgery will include some hardware.  

All in all things are moving exceptionally quick and we have been several steps ahead, every step of the way.  Because of the knowledge that we bring to the table at R2R we see Scotty getting a lot of great attention when it comes to everyone involved, doctors in multiple departments, nurses, social workers, case workers, insurance, multiple rehab facilities and all their departments, air transport companies, you name it!  They all know the name Scotty Cranmer and we have their support!

#standwithscotty shirts are coming from VANS shoes and should be available first thing next week!  We might even have a sneak peak at them tomorrow!  It will be a great way to show your support and donate to Scotty's recovery.  We are also making some awesome helmet stickers to be available soon.  Thank you for your support, thank you for your positive thoughts.  This is a long road and your support makes the journey that much better!  Stay glued to this page for all the Scotty news and updates.

10/16/16 UPDATE - 

Earlier today as doctors did their rounds they informed us that the brain hemorrhage is healing well on it’s own and will not require surgery. R2R is in the hospital with Scotty’s family and we just got this update as Scotty was transferred from the operating room to recovery. The doctor came out and said everything went well regarding stabilizing his spine. The surgeon clarified the injury and said that he has a C4 INCOMPLETE spinal cord contusion. The surgeon also fused C4 and C5 to add stability to the area of injury. Incomplete meaning that he can work hard and fight to fix the damage, but he’s not just going to wake up okay. “It’s really good news. It’s going to be a battle but Scotty can do it! You guys know how much fight and determination he has. He’s got this.” Scotty’s wife, Lisa Cranmer.

With the help of R2R and the case workers of the hospital applications are going out in the morning to secure a top level rehab facility for his injuries. If all goes well Scotty may be transferred before the end of next week. The comments and support from his friends, family and YouTube Subscribers has been overwhelmingly positive. We have shared your comments with Scotty and his family and the support really does make a difference. R2R is also currently working with Scotty’s insurance company to better understand what they will and will not cover. We know already they will not cover his medical transport to rehabilitation and that can be anywhere from $15k to $45k.

R2R will continue to assist the family through this difficult time and prepare them with information and guidance to give Scotty the best possible opportunity available! Your support is greatly needed and appreciated.

Scotty Cranmer is currently being hospitalized in Las Vegas after taking a very serious crash that resulted brain bleeding, facial fractures, and damage to his spinal cord. Watch above for the latest update from Scotty's dad and Big Boy and read below for more information and to learn how you can help.

Road 2 Recovery

Professional BMX rider Scotty Cranmer was shooting a film session with his Monster Energy team mates in Las Vegas Nevada on the evening of October 12th and caught his front wheel in a hole that catapulted him into a face plant without time to get his hands in front of him.

Suffering several facial fractures, cerebral hemorrhage and damage to his C4 and C5 vertebrae Road 2 Recovery jumped into action less than an hour after his accident. Currently we have assisted his Dad and wife with travel to be by his side.

R2R is working with local doctors and other specialists to insure Scotty gets the best possible care at this time. Multiple surgeries are in his future and the past few hours has resulted in the doctors calling him stable and strong for surgery on his vertebrae. We are wishing Scotty and his family the best and have set up a page on our website to keep people informed.  


"Road 2 Recovery has been incredibly helpful in this situation.  They are several steps ahead on what we need to do to help Scotty.  This would be an even more difficult time without them.  Thankfully things are a world of difference since yesterday and we are pleased with his progress.  If you wish to help Scotty we ask that you donate to Road 2 Recovery at this time" Scott Cranmer. (Scotty's Dad)

Please use the website that has been set up to leave a positive message for Scotty, his wife and his family.

We want to thank TJ Lavin and his family for providing information, support and sharing their experience with doctors in the Las Vegas area. The flow of information is coming in strong and we are pleased to have come so far in such a short time.  We also would like to thank Connor Fields and his family for helping with a place to stay in Vegas.
