A year after daughter Shauna was born. Now a talented painter, Shauna's first boyfriend was killed under her own eyes. They were both attending University of Boulder, Co. when another student, former best friend of Ms Redford's boyfriend, killed him. A few months later a distraught and depressed Shauna fell with her car into a lake near her father's Sundance property. Her life was then in danger and it was feared she wouldn't walk anymore. Today things are happier for Shauna Redford; she married writer and university professor Eric Schlosser, author of Fast Food Nation and they have two children ,a boy and a girl called Mica

The second kid of the Redford had his share of struggles as well. After different hospital stays, James -Jamie- Redford was diagnosed at 15 with ulcerative colitis. His condition worsened and he was diagnosed with primary sclerosing cholangitus in 1987; a rare complication that blocks the liver's bile ducts. Only 25, he was told his liver would fail in five to ten years. By 1993, his condition had deteriorated so dramatically that he had to live at the University of Nebraska Medical Center battling excruciating pain and dangerous infections while hoping for a new liver. Things got better for Jamie as he survived two liver transplants and he is now in good health, married to his high school sweetheart, Kyle, a primary school teacher and they have two kids, Lena, a girl, and Dylan, a boy. Jamie has founded JRI-- The James Redford Institute for transplant Awareness, dedicated to help the people who wait for transplants and share their stories- He has also produced and written different movies on the subject, most notably 'Spin' and 'The Kindness of Strangers'
