Neighbours have been supportive while Sam is home alone with the kids, and we are also so appreciative that Mantas’ mom and sister are very present during his hospital stay. The doctors have Mantas as a priority due to his age, strength, and rarity of the situation, and are very encouraging in regards to the progress of his mobility.
This fund has been created to support Mantas and Sam (Maksas+Anya) during this whole process. As most of you know, they are living in Australia and Mantas was the sole financial provider for the family. Since childcare is nearly $200 a day for the children, Samantha stays home with them since they do not receive any child tax or reimbursements for care from either government. It’s a relief that their insurance is covering the hospital stay, but there is no work compensations during this process, or coverage for physiotherapy.
If you find that you are in a financial situation to be able to make a donation to support them, we would be very greatful for your generosity. If you find that you are not such in a position but are still wanting to send support emotionally, please pray for the well being of the family, and for progress in Mantas’ recovery. We are all devastated this happened but are being strong and supportive to him, and we are so thankful that nothing more extensive has occurred.
