GoFundMe account started for Carlson


September 13, 2018

To help Beau Carlson and his family with expenses resulting from his football injury, an account has been started for him on the Go Fund Me website (

Here are details from the website:

"This has been such a devastating time for the Carlson Family. Beau, a sophomore at Wahkiakum HS took a serious hit in his football game Friday night, September 7th against Adna HS in Adna. Beau was rushed to Providence Hospital in Centralia, and then airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, where he underwent emergency surgery. The doctor at Providence acted very quickly when the CT scan came back that Beau had a bleed on the outside of his brain. When Beau and Leihanna landed in Seattle, Beau was given an immediate CT scan where they found he was swelling, they took Beau into immediate surgery to stop the bleed and also had to remove part of the skull on his right side to relieve pressure and give the brain room to swell and run its course.

"Beau will be in Seattle for some time. His mom, Leihanna, hasn’t left his side. Brad and their three kids, Brody (Beau’s twin), Courtney, and Cooper have been making the 3 ½ hour commute back and forth to Seattle from Cathlamet, which is taking a toll on them, mentally, physically, and emotionally.
