On the morning of the 06/01/2018 Kane was experiencing what he thought was a migraine. 30 hours later and the intensity of the pain led Kane to go to hospital as something was not right. Upon arrival, he received a CT scan. We were hoping the results would come back clear, however unfortunately this was not the case. They found a bleed on Kane's brain. He had suffered an aneurysm. Kane was transferred to The Prince Of Wales Hospital and on the 08/01/2018 Kane was taken in for surgery and a Endovascular coiling was preformed. The aneurysm had ruptured, so 3 metal coils were inserted to hopefully stop it from causing any further problems. Kane's surgeon was happy with how his surgery went and he is now currently in the high dependency unit recovering. Kane needs to rest, he needs his brain to repair from what has happened. He is only allowed 2 visitors at a time and is to relax (easier said than done).
Kane's road to recovery is long. It will be slow process before Kane will be able to feel "normal" again. What is worse, is that there is a possibility that he may be unable to return to work, he may not be able to drive again, he may endure the intense headaches for the rest of his life... How does something like this happen, Kane is only 34!
Kane and his doting partner Steph have a beautiful little girl, Ruby. Ruby deserves to have her daddy around. Steph & Kane deserve to grow old together. As you're all aware, Kane is always the life of the party. He is someone who doesn't take life for granted, and when you're friends with Kane...you have a friend for life no matter if you see him daily, or haven't seen him in years.
My reasoning for setting up this, is to hopefully take a little bit of the burden financially away from Kane & Steph and let them concentrate on recovery, not worrying about how they will pay their next week of rent, Ruby's childcare, car repayments or pay added doctors
appointments. Kane served in the Australian Army for 7 years, 6 months alone he spent in East Timor, he endured pain doing so, but he fought through that so he will fight till the very end with this. Steph has started the process of applying for Kane's income protection, this is not a 100% guarantee and if it is, it's a 60 day waiting period alone to receive any form of income.
Please take your time to share, and please... Any form of donation will be greatly appreciated. This money will be going straight into Steph's bank account and she will receive emails from each and every person who donates.
On behalf of Kane, Steph and Miss Ruby, they would like to thank each and every one of you for the lovely messages, offers of help, support and well wishes.
Let's all get behind this family & help them get Kane home, where he belongs.
