DEVON

Welcome to the personal website of Devon Birns!

 

This website is dedicated to the story, journey and life events of Devon and his family, following Devon's brain injury in 2004, while under the influence of Crystal Meth.

This website began when Devon's mother was asked to keep a journal of the days, weeks and years following Devon's injury, and quickly became an online resource for those following Devon's story and to those who requested continuing updates on how he was doing.

Over the past 14 years, the Birns family has documented and shared the ups and downs of Devon's journey, and would like to thank you all for your continued support, communication and accompaniment along the sometimes winding roads.

Devon continues to have the infinite love and support of his Dad & Mom, his sisters and many extended  family & friends, as well as the unconditional love of his caregivers.
