Ty Suddarth & Family Relief Fund

$38,005 of $30k goal

Raised by 192 people in 32 months
Elizabeth Tracy Bagnell  FEDERAL WAY, WA




This is a fund raiser for Ty Suddarth, his partner Amanda and their six-month old son Duke.  Ty lost his home and every possession other than what was on back in the Oso mudslide.  Ty was running an errand at the time the mudslide hit, while Amanda and Duke were at home.  Amanda and Duke miraciously survived but have both sustained critical injuries, and both are still at Harborview Medical Center.  Amanada suffered multiple compound fractures while Duke suffered a fractured skull.  We are hoping to collect at least $30,000 for Ty and his family to help with temporary housing and replacing personal items like clothing, household items, and help with out of pocket medical expenses.  Ty is an employee with Olympic Interiors and member of the Pacific NW Regional Council of Carpenters.  Your generocity and thoughtfulness are appreciated.

Ruperto Gomez of the NW Carpenters received the following e-mail from Ty's mother yesterday with an update:

"Thank you so much Ruperto! Amanda and baby Duke are doing very well! Duke is doing so well he was transferred to Children's Hospital to start rehab. Amanda and Ty both got to hold him. Amanda had her 4th surgery and will get a 5th on her eye on Thursday. She is doing really well. After only a week, she can move her left arm all around and ever rotate it. I didn't see her yesterday but my husband said she is moving her legs too and she was sitting up. Their recovery has been incredible. We are so fortunate and grateful! The support from you, the union & brothers, and others has been so amazing "“ we all can't hardly comprehend it. Ty mentioned a union meeting to me over the phone this morning. He intends on being there. If it's appropriate, we will all be there!"

We heard that Duke (baby) was taken off of oxygen today and is breathing on his own. Also, their family dog was found alive in the mud and debris earlier this week.

Upon the advice of UBC Chief of Staff Justin Weidner, I wrote a letter to General President Doug McCarron asking for assistance through the Helping Hands program. “This program provides funds for members who are in dire need due to circumstances beyond their control,” said Weidner. “President McCarron presented Suddarth’s situation to the Helping Hands Committee, and they responded immediately, providing him with a check for $10,000."
