We hope that all of you will pray for Kenny and his family, as well as give them support. If you'd like to donate to help with his medical expenses, you may do so directly on his personal website, downsideupfmx.com. You also may send a donation via PayPal directly to: downsideupfmx@yahoo.com.

We will update this post as we receive any updates from the family. Thanks so much in advance for your kindness and generosity toward the Steinke in this very difficult time.


UPDATE: 5/1/13 - 7:30 PM - According to a local news affiliate, Kenny's condition has been upgraded from critical to serious. Said teammate Travis Willis, "Kenny's in stable condition. He's doing better day by day. He's breathing on his own. He's moving both arms, both legs. He has opened his eyes. So, each day gets better and better."
