Taylor Morris eats a brownie (Video)

I just got off the phone with Danielle, Taylor’s girlfriend. She updated me on Taylor’s rehab, he’s progressing faster than anybody hoped. Taylor is already using his right hand prosthetic, he can even sign his name. Taylor was fitted for his left hand yesterday and doctors took a casting of his left leg. His legs will be a process, lots of balance training and choosing the perfect prosthetic model; I’ll keep you updated on his progress there. Updates can also be found on TaylorMorris.org

Now for the Chive support. Danielle told me that Chivers have come out of the woodwork at the hospital, soldiers walk in and flash the KCCO’s under their uniforms. Thousands of emails and letters have poured in from Chivers around the country. Taylor reads every single one, and tries to respond to nearly every single email. The Morris family has thrived on the Chivers’ support. Danielle told me,

“Thank the Chivers for all of this, it’s more than we could have ever expected. It’s hard to believe a community like this even exists. But it does.”

  • Verbal_Kint

    How much did we end up raising for him and his family? Did we pay for the cabin in full? If not, let's finish the job…

    • Edwin

      I think the last report was over $230,000.00

      • HatBomb

        That was the last I saw, but I can only imagine it hit the web something fierce after that. And they have fundraisers on going. Nice work Chivers! KCCO

        • Mike

          The last Chive update was $250,000

          • Rholio

            Last update was a while ago, too… love to see the $30,000 we were challenged for turn into $300,000.

            • Fish

              I think it'll hit $350,000. Never underestimate the amazing Chive Nation!

    • Dr_Batman

      We bought him that cabin and then some. Hell if he asked we'd buy him a thousand fucking brownies.

  • guthrie

    Taylor Morris is my hero!

  • Jay

    We praying for u bub!

    mmm thats a good brownie treat 🙂 my man keep it up!

  • Spencer_on_Fire

    Things like this make me proud to be a Chiver and an American. To step up to something of this magnitude…..it really shows how dedicated we are to a cause

    KCCO Taylor

    • Dee

      Just don't forget that theChive has no borders and people from all around the world contributed. We supported a fellow human, not just a fellow American.

      • Spencer_on_Fire

        Truer words are rarely spoken

      • The_Dood

        Which is really saying a lot. I bet a lot of them were the sort of people that despise the wars that the US has been in for the last decade and would be the first to tell us that we don't belong there (wherever there may be). But that doesn't mean that they don't support truly valiant and generous men like Taylor that happen to be/have been fighting those wars.

        I'm so proud to be a part of this community.

    great job bud. keep fighting!

  • HatBomb

    The positive outlook on this man is amazing. Proud to be a part of the Chive and to have helped out, but with an attitude like that, nothing would have stopped him one way or the other. Now where can I get me a brownie treat? KCCO Taylor.

  • http://www.cupcakesbymartha.com MarthaJeane

    Not sure what's more inspiring, his positive attitude through all this, or the way the chive community has rallied to support him.

    • SouthernRebel18B

      His attitude and work ethic is indicative of the EOD's we've come across over there. They have nerves of steel. I can humbly say I'm not surprised by his outlook and attitude. It takes a special person to do what they do and Taylor definitely fits the criteria of being something special.

  • king moe

    you got balls the size of church bells, brother. all the best!!

  • T Bags

    Hell yes! That's awesome Taylor. Loved the addition of the "Om Nom"!

    KCCO, we are all rooting for you!

  • David Baye

    Always an inspiration! KCCO from Wisconsin!

  • beanshaker

    If ever a man has earned a brownie, it is surely that man. KCCO

  • uh...yeah.

    Chive we want Taylor Morris shirts and for the profits to go to wounded veterans. Sincerely the thumbs up.

    • Yessirr

      Seems obvious, really.

    • The_Dood

      Well, they don't go to veterans (plural)… Just Taylor, although I'd be willing to be that that will change in the future. But here they are http://taylormorris.org/merchandise/

  • Roose1135

    Keep it up man!
