Please help Mom bring Jared home

Jared is my 21 year old son, the second of four beautiful children I've been blessed with.  In February of this year, Jared embarked on a personal journey 2000 kms from home to Halifax, to pursue his musical aspirations.  Athough far from home (Sudbury) I knew I had to let go as a mother and allow Jared the freedom to discover himself as a man; through travel, independence, and exploration of his interests.

On June 8th of this month Jared was brutally attacked and stabbed in the neck, and wrist.  The near fatal wound to the neck caused severe damage to his esophagus, trachea, thyroid gland and also damaged one of his vocal cords.  These  serious injuries required emergency surgery and will  require him to be hospitalized for at least a month, under constant observation with hopes of the best possible recovery.

Once Jared regained consciousness from his medically-induced coma, (post-surgery) his first question to the medical staff, was "When is my Momma coming?" written on a note pad, because he was unable to speak. Jared spent the first 4 days in ICU virtually alone and it broke my heart not to be able to be with my son during this horrific incident.

With some financial assistance I was able to drive the 2000 km trip to be by Jared's side.  I am now in  Halifax however, I am unable to sustain my stay here without financial assistance.  Jared's ear/nose/oral surgeon has informed me that he will have to remain in the hospital for at least 1 month.
The costs of medical expenses outside of Ontario, accommodations and meals for me for the duration of Jared's recovery, as well as travel expenses to bring Jared home when he is able to leave are much more  substantial than I am able to afford.

I don't often ask or require support, but this is a critical situation, where I must put aside my pride and reach out to friends for the sake of my son.
Jared's family are  praying he will make a speedy recovery, regain his ability to sing his rap melodies and of course soon return back to Ontario, where his family and friends miss him very much. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this!  Any contribution is much appreciated, and if you are unable to,  please send  prayers and well wishes.
