Sean's road to recovery

$2,546 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 24 people in 19 months
February 1st of this year, Sean had brain surgery to remove a cavernous malformation from his brain stem. What was expected to be a straight forward procedure has turned into 3 respiratory failures, 3 trips to icu partial paralysis, dysphasia (inability to swallow) which has led to a tracheotomy, stomach peg (feeding through tube into stomach), inability to walk, impaired speech and blindness. All of this, we're hopeful will be recovered from but the costs are piling up with the cost of prescriptions, equipment purchases and rentals (hospital bed, wheelchair, transport lift, tube feed supplies, medical supplies and home care.  
All money will be used to continue with Sean's care and rehab and will be greatly appreciated to hold us over until we can get some money coming in. Unfortunately Sean wasn't able to work for several months prior to surgery and have used up all the savings we had. The next step is to sell our home but until then we are asking for any help.

Thank you to all the wonderful support we've received!
Sean is now tube free with the catheter removed last week and the feeding tube removed this week. He has even managed to transfer from his wheelchair to the bed with minimal support. Thank you again to everyone who has generously given to our cause!
