On November 16, the Pompa family posted an update on a GoFundMe page for the family.
“It’s been just over a month since Channing was transferred to an out-of-state hospital for more advanced care. He remains on advanced life support and has had several complications over the past month. He remains sedated, but every day the team is working to slowly come back down in hopes of waking him up within the next two weeks. He has a very long road ahead of him but with an as yet undetermined outcome. But we pray every day that he will recover soon and may he come back to us. Thank you all for your support. It really means a lot to us,” read a statement from the Pompa.
