Sam Bixler's Circle of Trust

In the early morning of Saturday January 13th Sam Bixler was struck by a car as he was walking across the street on Mass Ave. in Cambridge. He suffered a severe traumatic brain injury and was immediately rushed to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston where he was sedated, intubated, and monitored until Sunday night when his brain pressure exceeded safe levels. He was taken to emergency surgery to remove a portion of his skull to relieve the pressure from the swelling. Thankfully, the surgery was successful and Sam’s brain pressure was controllable to safe levels. On Thursday, January 18th Sam’s pressure was controlled enough that they could remove the neurovent that monitors his pressure.

Sam is still in critical condition and remains largely unconscious. His injury is incredibly serious and it is impossible at this point to determine the impact it will have on his life. Luckily, there have been some promising signs in the last few days and his family, girlfriend, and friends are remaining hopeful. No matter the outcome, Sam has a long road ahead of him. Unfortunately, there are many unforeseen expenses that will be forthcoming for Sam and his loved ones. These include hospital and rehabilitation expenses, living expenses, airfare for family to come to Boston to care for him, and other expenses to ensure his recovery and hopeful return home.

Sam has received a rallying cry of support from around the country (and the world!) and it is so clear how loved he is by everyone that has ever met him. Anyone who’s ever met Sam can tell you he is one of the strongest and most positive people they have ever encountered. It is evident when you see him with his friends and family and with his students that he has always worked tirelessly to serve. Sam is a friend to all, an amazing support to all those in his life, and a tireless fighter. If there was ever a person that could surmount this tremendous obstacle, it’s Sam. Please keep sending your positive energy and vibes to Sam. We truly think he feels the love coming at him from all corners of the world.

If you prefer, you may donate to me directly via PayPal- Daniel16delay@gmail.com or Venmo: daniel-delay. I can send you confirmation if you wish to contribute that way.

    Sam Bixler was an excellent teacher. Our son came home often with interesting topics we would all discuss over dinner, from Sam’s class. A terrible loss. Our condolences to his family and friends.

    World lost an amazing guy. I lost one of my closest friends. I feel blessed to have known Sam for almost 5 years and to have so many memories with him. He may be gone but the goodness in his heart and what he stood for will carry on. RIP Sam

    My daughter was fortunate to have Mr. Bixler for a teacher this past semester. He left a huge impact and will sorely be missed.
