Kevin Stallings Benevolence

Kevin Stallings Benevolence
Kevin Stallings has loved horses all of his life. He became a professional trainer in 1980. He has also been a cow horse competitor since the 80’s. He and his wife, Karen, have lived in Camp Verde, Arizona for seven years.



On August 23, 2019 life drastically changed for the Stallings family. Kevin suffered a Type A Aortic Aneurysm that ruptured, requiring an emergency open heart procedure. Seven weeks after the surgery, it was discovered that Kevin’s sternum bone was infected. He was hospitalized for 16 days. Four additional surgeries and eight weeks of IV antibiotics later, the family was hopeful he was on the road to recovery. However, in January another emergency procedure was required; this one to replace his aorta from his carotid artery to his femoral artery. This extensive surgery, and serious complications as a result of it, kept Kevin in the hospital for fifty-four days. Complications included pneumonia, a tracheotomy, GI issues and damage to his vocal cords.



Currently Kevin is doing physical therapy at home and phone consults with the therapist. It will be necessary to see other specialists once his surgeon feels he is recovered enough to pursue additional therapies.



Unable to work since August of last year, with no realistic projected return date . . . Kevin and Karen would sincerely appreciate any support you can provide to help with living expenses and the balance of bills that insurance doesn’t cover.
