On Tuesday July 25th, 2017 Blake Harnett went into cardiac arrest after suffering an attack from Addison's disease . His step mother Jacqueline tried to revive Blake until the Fire Fighters arrived, he was transported to RVH in Barrie. Blake went into cardiac arrest multiple times during the ride to RVH, finally when RVH got him stable they he was transported to Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto. At Sick Kids he was placed in critical stable unit, there were concerns of the possibilty of brain damage due to lack of oxygen. In the days to follow the Drs gave Jacqueline and Gord the worst news they could hear, that there was no brain activity and at that time Gord discussed donating Blake's organs to save another child's life. On Saturday July 29th, Blake sadly passed away at 10:38am. The hope of bringing joy and healing to others was dashed shortly after his passing with the realization that none of his organs were viable for transplant. At this time his family is back at home in Barrie and trying to plan a funeral for his family and friends to say good bye. We are setting this page up to try and help any financial burden that comes along with this. No parent should have to go through what Jacqueline and Gord have been through the last six days and the worse part it is not even over for them. If we can help take off just a little stress off them we will. Please help us donate as much money as we can to help this family. No matter whether it's a dollar or a share you will help this family more than you know.
Thank you in advance for everyone helping, the family is very thankful and grateful for all the kind words and support that they have been given.
