Jeff Leib: A Note About Bill Briggs And His Family

19 Jan

FRIENDS OF FORMER Denver Post writer and Guild member Bill Briggs may want to visit the website andreaswayback.com to learn of the heroic effort Bill’s daughter, Andrea, is making recovering from a very serious auto accident in Denver last July.

The 20-year-old was a passenger in a car that was broadsided by another vehicle. Andrea suffered multiple fractures and a traumatic brain injury. Her courageous battle to recover is beautifully chronicled on the website by Bill — who always was one of The Post’s best writers — and by Andrea’s mom and Bill’s ex-wife, Lorrie, and Bill’s current wife, Nancy.

The three are Andrea’s primary caregivers today and their posts are very moving.  Team Andrea, as they’re known, also offers a way for friends, family and former colleagues to contribute to Andrea’s Way Back by funding a portion of her much-needed therapy.

If you have a chance, check out andreaswayback.com.

Thanks,
Jeff Leib

    Instead of having a benefit concert that costs $75 per person, why not just sue the other party if it were there fault to begin with? Makes no sense, but my best wishes go out to Andrea.
