Michelle Money has a 15-year-old daughter, Brielle. Recently, The Bachelor alum has been sharing a lot about her daughter. This is because of her daughter’s tragic skateboarding accident. On March 29, Brielle was riding her skateboard in the neighborhood. She ended up having an accident, and some neighbors on a walk found her and called an ambulance.
As a result of the accident, Brielle was on life support. She has been in the hospital for nearly a month and was in a coma for part of the time. Michelle has been keeping her Instagram followers up to date on Brielle’s progress over the past month. Recently, Michelle told her followers she’d be taking a social media break to focus on Brielle’s recovery. So, Michelle’s ex, Ryan Money, shared a few updates.

Brielle was in terrible skateboarding accident and is in the ICU on life support. She suffered a serious brain trauma and a fractured skull. She is in a medically induced coma to relieve pressure in her brain. She is in amazing hands up at Primary Children’s Hospital. Please- I am asking for prayers. I believe in the power of communication with whatever God you believe in. The energy of your conscious focus to send healing to my daughter is real. In whatever form you commune with your Higher Power, please as a desperate mother, I am begging you to do so. She needs support and healing right now. And if you could send one up for me as well, I would appreciate it. This is the worst experience of my life. ALWAYS MAKE THEM WEAR THE HELMET. ALWAYS. EVEN WHEN THEY PUSH BACK. Thank you to the neighbors who happened to be on a walk and found her and called 911. You will never understand. I would not have found her in time. My heart is forever grateful. Thank you to all of you who have sent prayers and messages and love. Brielle has been through so much already this year. She has proven how strong she is. I know she will pull through. #PrayForBrie
Last time fans heard from Ryan, on April 22, he said that Brielle is walking and talking. He also said that Brielle is “crushing our expectations.” So, it definitely seems like things are looking up. And, now there’s a new update from Michelle.
Michelle Money says Brielle is released from the hospital
After nearly a month in the hospital, Brielle has been released. Michelle shared a couple of photos of Brielle in front of the hospital. She also shared one of the two of them together. Michelle calls Brielle’s accomplishments since waking up “mind blowing.” She’s impressed by how quickly Brielle is recovering. Of course, the family realizes that there is still a long road ahead of them. But, they are definitely happy with her progress.
Michelle Money adds that Brielle is progressing well as far as speech goes. She says, “Bri’s speech therapist told us that in the 6 years she has been working, she has never seen a kid recover as fast as Bri has. I am incredibly grateful for her speedy recovery yet I know we have a long road still ahead of us.” In her post, Michelle refers to Brielle as a “warrior” and a “fighter.”

26 days after her accident and she is walking out of the hospital with a whole new outlook on life. What Brielle has accomplished since she woke up from her coma is absolutely mind blowing. Her ability to push through the pain and frustration of relearning how to walk, talk, eat, drink, get dressed, shower, brush her teeth etc. is beyond impressive to watch as her mother. Bri’s speech therapist told us that in the 6 years she has been working, she has never seen a kid recover as fast as Bri has. I am incredibly grateful for her speedy recovery yet I know we have a long road still ahead of us. This girl is a fighter. She is a warrior. She is going to do amazing things with her life! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your love, support and prayers! You will never understand what it has meant to us. Never. As I try to explain all of this to Brielle, she is slowly starting to realize what has actually happened the last month. It’s a lot to process but she is very grateful for all of you! She does not want to be remembered for this but I think we all know she has a big purpose here that will far surpass the memory of this accident. I am forever grateful she gets the opportunity to experience all this amazing life has to offer her! As she gave me her permission to share this picture, I want to thank you for respecting our privacy and allowing us to process all of this on our own time. Looking forward to a new and beautiful life with this kid. She is my hero. #BrielleStrong
Michelle also takes the time to thank her followers for all of their love, support, and prayers during this time. The Bachelor fans and Bachelor Nation have been rallying around the Money family. The new Bachelorette Clare Crawley even left a comment on the most recent post, saying that her “heart is exploding.”
In her post, Michelle mentions that she is helping Brielle to understand everything that happened. But, Brielle doesn’t totally get it all yet. Michelle adds that it’s a lot for the family to process. And, as they plan to process it all at their own pace, Michelle asks for privacy. She closes her post by saying that she’s “looking forward to a new and beautiful life.”
In response to her post, Michelle’s followers are talking about how much of a miracle Brielle’s recovery is. They hope to hear about the rest of Brielle’s recovery when the family is ready to share about it. And, of course, they’re always here to support Michelle and Brielle.
