Chelcie & Brad need help after a tragedy!

So friday night(may 3rd) a very heartless and unexpect crime occured. My friend & coworker Chelcie’s husband Brad was attacked for helping and defending others! He was enjoying a fire with friends after working all day at Okanagan Beach fire pits in Penticton, B.C. Some younger guys were being harassed by 2 male adults and one of the male adults grabbed a teens hat. A female was also being harassed by the two adult males. So Brad, being the caring person he is stepped in to try to stop this and defend the younger guys. He was then jumped and attacked by the two male adults that were harassing the teens and was left severely injured. He was rushed to Kelowna General Hospital where he underwent Brain surgery to try to reduce swelling and bleeding of the brain on Saturday, May 4th, 2019. He is now in a medically induced coma to try to help him heal! These first few days are crucial and I know Chelcie is by her husbands side and not working at our job at Penticton General Hospital as if I were her I would be doing the same! That being said bills like rent still need to be paid and she still needs to eat and sleep! With both of them not working and Brad possibly being on a very long road to recovery they will need all the help they can get! I have known Chelcie for 5 months and she is a caring and funny human! She always tries to light up your day if it’s going badly. She always tries to be a positive person and she is doing her best at that right now! Please help if even only $5, $10 or anything! He did a very selfless and caring thing and now he is paying the price for it unfortunately!
