Patrick has East Coast and West Coast ties. He is originally from the Mad River Valley in Vermont, where his parents still reside. On January 28, 2013 Patrick was the first skier on the hill at Squaw Valley. Approaching the ski area’s Siberia chair lift, Patrick went to stop, his feet came out from under him and he slid, hitting his leg on a lift line divider. The crash resulted in a compound tibia / fibula fracture and a severed artery. After over seven months of surgeries and battling to keep his leg, Patrick had his left leg amputated below the knee in August. Last year Patrick made a promise to his children that he would take them skiing this upcoming season and he plans on keeping that promise. With the two grants provided by the High Fives Foundation for recovery costs and adaptive equipment, Patrick is well on his way to fulfilling that promise.
