Update March 6th

Stephen is now at home and recovering. His wife Connie said that he went to the neurosurgeon today and will need to continue to wear a neck brace for a continued period of time. Tomorrow they will see a knee surgeon about scheduling his surgery.   Connie said he’s getting stir crazy being at home so much.

From February 11th

If you haven’t heard, one of our Salem Graduates from 2007 -along with his guide-dog-, was a victim of a hit-and-run. This incident happened Monday right outside his workplace, Massage Envy at Keizer Station. It was reported both Stephen Murphy and his dog were dragged several feet underneath the car that didn’t stop. Stephen and his dog are now listed in critical condition, some of which are severe and life changing.

Even though Stephen will most likely have insurance to cover this, not all expenses -both immediate and long term- will be covered. As such, his wife Connie has setup an Emergency Fund. In times of tragedy such as this, OSM feels that we are stronger as a community than if we faced them separately. Please consider donating to ease Stephen and his impacted family through this moment of uncertainty by clicking on this link: https://www.gofundme.com/da524u-medical-bills-for-steven-murphy-and-amilia?member=1692904

OSM will also be making a donation in support of Stephen and his family. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Stephen and his family.

NB: We received an update of an apprehension of the hit-and-run suspect: https://www.kptv.com/news/police-suspect-arrested-in-hit-and-run-that-injured-blind/article_3597129e-3003-11e9-bea7-7b8f7d58e276.html?fbclid=IwAR1atpzFLBHzmChX2o2c49IBgr7a6j-5IRm1kVRok_ogVoRGkr4n2vJc6C4

One Response to Update March 6th: Stephen Murphy, OSM Grad involved in accident

  1. How is Stephen doing? I used to be better friends with him when I worked for Massage Envy in 2011 and often think about him but sadly haven’t kept in touch since then. I have a phone number for him and would like to confirm it if you also have his number, so that I can talk to him or his wife and hopefully bring some smiles. 🙂 otherwise, I will call that number tomorrow or Friday.
