Dane's Road To Recovery

Dane is a 24 year old electrician from Blackfalds, AB. His passions include snowboarding, sports, skate boarding, dirt biking, working hard, his truck and family. In January of last year Dane recieved the most unfortunate news that somebody so young, talented, energetic and driven could ever recieve. While working up north he began experiencing odd episodes and was sent home by the camp nurse for further testing. After returning home and having more tests done he was told that he had a tumor that covered the whole left hemisphere of his brain and could no longer work. He began undergoing many appointments in Edmonton with specialists and doctors to both monitor the tumor and determine the best way to remove the tumor without impairing his speach and movement. Along with this he had multiple violent siezures daily. In May Dane underwent an 8 hour surgery in attempts to remove the tumor. They successfully removed 65% of the tumor but after biopsies, it was determined that the chances of the tumor being cancerous were very high. He soon begins chemo and radiation in U of A's Neuro Unit and the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton meaning more time off work, travel costs, uncovered bills and housing complications. I want to raise money for Dane so he is able to focus on his road to recovery without the stresses of the many piling up bills and upcoming costs after more than a year without working. Any amount helps. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
