Update on Kevin Babington, who is at Mayo Clinic

Kathy Gilbert is organizing this fundraiser on behalf of Dianna Babington.

Kevin Babington familyKevin Babington familyThis fundraiser is for our dear friends Kevin and Dianna (Flaherty) Babington and their teen aged daughters Gwyneth and Marielle.

Kevin, an accomplished Olympic equestrian, was competing at The Hamptons Classic in August 2019 and was thrown from a horse suffering catastrophic spinal cord injuries and is now unable to move.

As you can imagine, the medical bills and family needs are already enormous and will continue to mount as the family income stream has now been substantially impacted.

Update, Today by Kathy Gilbert, Organizer


IT'S BEEN A while since I sent an update about Kevin.

He is working as hard as he always did with his horses at his physical therapy and it is paying off, albeit slowly.

Right now, he is at the Mayo Clinic with Dianna awaiting what everyone hopes will be the miracle treatment we all dream of for him.

Dianna posted a video of Kevin showing him able to lift one of his arms and to wriggle his toes.

The below note is from Dianna......

We are patiently awaiting Friday’s treatment. I

t is painful just sitting around.

There is literally nothing to do but eat.

Kevin misses watching the horses from his porch, the kids and the dogs but he is in top spirits.

We took a little pre- treatment video so we can look back and hopefully be astonished by improvement.

That is our wish. .........

Please send prayers and positive thoughts their way! GO KEVIN!!!!!!

To support Kevin, no matter how small the donation, send a check or go to The Babington Family Go Fund Me Campaign.

Please send checks to The Babington Family Trust PO Box 771 Gwynedd Valley, PA 19437.

Go to, put in Kevin Babington's name.
