Thank you for taking the time to learn about my incredible brother, Barry, a hard-working small business owner, loving father of four wonderful children and outdoor enthusiast.
Barry's recent fall has turned our lives upside down as we all patiently await what options are available to address his two broken feet and other complications throughout his body.
A talented Bricklayer and avid Backcountry Camper, Barry is no stranger to hard work and is not afraid of the blood, sweat and tears that yield rewards that few of us are willing to pursue. As Barry lies in the hospital, awaiting updates on whether surgery is even an option, he is plagued by the thoughts of mounting medical expenses and being robbed of the opportunity to spend quality time with his kids doing what they love most; anything outdoors. This career-altering injury will likely mean Barry's livelihood is out of his reach, and his convalescence is punctuated by the daunting inevitability of embarking on a new vocation as well.
Out-of-pocket rehabilitation expenses are the focus of this campaign, as well as living expenses while Barry is confined to a wheelchair and unable to work.
These include, but are not limited to:
- a wheelchair
- physiotherapy & occupational therapy
- an accessible living space
Our family hopes that Barry will one day walk again. Until that time, we truly appreciate your generous contributions during this difficult adjustment. We are very grateful for your assistance navigating this life-changing injury and the unexpected expenses we're all trying to manage. Your donation means that we can spend time helping Barry recover and learn how to negotiate the lifestyle that living in a wheelchair brings about.
As we learn more specifics from the Specialists and Surgeons that we will meet with, I will be sure to update you and let you know how Barry is recovering.
