Aaron Hammer, the rodeo rider critically injured on Sept. 7 in Sumas, is at a hospital at the University of Washington awaiting a liver transplant, his sister Katie Desjardins, said.
Hammer, 29, remains in critical condition and is in intensive care at UW Medical Center, said Susan Gregg, director of media relations for UW Medicine.
Hammer’s horse threw him and then stepped on him during a bronc-riding event at the Sumas Bull-a-Rama, Desjardins said. The Sept. 7 event was the first time bronc riders had participated at Bull-a-Rama.
“The family appreciates the support and prayers we have received from everyone,” Desjardins said.
