12yr old Boston Woods was hit by a transport truck while riding his bike across the street on Hespeler Rd in Cambridge on August 16th 2017.

He was flown to London hospital with life threatening injuries and then later flown to Hamilton hospital where he is now in critical condition. He suffered broken legs, broken pelvis, broken elbows, and internal bleeding.

I am good friends with his parents Lisa and Rob and have set up this account to help them with all the costs that they will be incurring during Bostons recovery. E.g hospital parking, overnight stays, medication costs, additional hospital cost etc.

Please donate if you can to help this wonderful family during this tragic time, if you cannot donate please just keep them in your thoughts❤️!

I will post updates on his recovery as often as I can.

Boston is out of surgery, it went better than expected even though it started off with a scare, this morning he went in for pelvic surgery and an artery was hit. After calling In a new doctor they proceeded with the pelvic surgery and it went better than expected!!! He then went back into surgery for his spine and he is now out and in recovery!!!!! He made it! He's a fighter #39

Thank you to everyone for all of the love, support, and donations for this family❤️ please keep Boston in your thoughts and prayers as his journey is still far from over.

Hi everyone I just wanted to post an update from the Woods family as they have tried to keep up with giving everyone updates as much as possible;

Hi Guys !!! I just wanted everyone one to know that Boston has had a tremendous couple days... he's literally timing everything from bring flipped every 4 hours breathing exercises. . Arm exercises. .. won't eat anything unless approved (he ripped out the feeding tube in his sleep so yes he's eating lol) His next hurdle is this Thursday where he has a spinal/pelvic surgery... Of course the surgery is one of a kind just like Boston but I'm putting all my trust in the great teams here at MCMASTER. .. after this I will have a better idea of what to expect over the next upcoming months .. I hold every person and warm thoughts and prayers dear to my heart and couldn't ever possibly thank you the way you deserve!! I'm so proud of the son I've raised he blows my mind ... probably the only person really keeping me together... xoxo xoxoxo tons of love !!!!

Thank you to everyone for all of the love, support, and donations for this family❤️ please keep Boston in your thoughts and prayers as his journey is still far from over!

Much love ❤️

Boston has his feeding tube and his neck brace off as of this morning! He is conscious and able to speak with his parents at this point! ❤️ he is still trying to comprehend what all has happened to him and his recovery still has a long way to go.

The family will be staying at the Ronald McDonald house for the time being while Boston continues to fight and heal from all of this.


Thank you so much to everyone for keeping him and his family in your thoughts and prayers for the last 24 hours ❤️ and of course for your generous donations I know they appreciate it very much as well.

Please continue to pray for Boston and his family ❤️

Bostons first surgery has went well, he has some ruptured organs, internal bleeding still and broken bones. He has had multiple blood transfusions but is now stable! Obviously all the surgeries he is going to need are not going to happen at once, Boston has a long road to recovery.

The family will be staying at the Ronald McDonald house for the time being while Boston continues to fight and heal from all of this.


Thank you so much to everyone for keeping him and his family in your thoughts and prayers for the last 24 hours ❤️ and of course for your generous donations I know they appreciate it very much as well.

Please continue to pray for Boston and his family ❤️
