Angus deserves a treat

Angus is my twin brother. He has been through a lot in his life, from being born with spina bifida and being confined to a wheelchair his entire life, to losing our father and mother at 18 and 22, respectively.  Through all of this, Angus has maintained his good humour. Nobody likes to laugh more than him. Anybody who has ever met him loves him and wants to do everything in their power to keep him up.  Right now Angus is having a hard time. He is in the Intensive Care Unit at St. Martha's Hospital in Antigonish and currently on a ventilator. They are not sure if he has influenza or pneumonia but his lungs are struggling.  He was intubated on January 3rd and they were able to take him off the vent on January 4th. Because he was still struggling, they kept him in the ICU on bi-pap.  This morning, January 6th, he was having some more troubles and they had to intubate him again.  I started this fundraiser for Angus to be able to have a treat of his choosing when he recovers from this horrible setback. The last time we talked, he was thinking of starting a YouTube channel but lacks the comfort funds to afford the equipment he would need. I don't care if he spends the money on Xbox games, a party, or what he will probably (jokingly) say, hookers and coke. If he has to spend a long time in the hospital, he would probably love to put some of the money towards having a TV in his room. I do not have a lot of money but I do have a lot of love for Angus and I think you guys do, too. Let's see what we can put together for him.
