Dominic's Brain Surgery Fund

On January 8th, 2018, 14 year old Dominic Koerte was at school, when he started complaining of a headache. He was on his way home when he began losing consiousness, so he was rushed to the hospital. The hospital he was rushed to said he needed to be LifeFlighted immediately to Primary Children's Hospital, at the University of Utah. Dominic was immediately taken into emergency brain surgery, due to a blood clot that had begun bleeding in his brain.

The doctor had to take off part of his skull to reduce brain swelling, but has since reattached it-though the medical team is keeping a close eye on things, should they need to take it off again. 

The family is now waiting for news, while Dominic remains heavily sedated and unconcious. Doctors have told the family that he will not be able to return to school again, until Fall 2018 at the earliest. This is life changing for he, and his family.

Dominic's family now has to pay a Lifeflight bill, along with the many unexpected surgery bills and hospital bills that will pile up in the weeks and months to come. 

If you are able to donate even $1.00, that will be an incredible help. It really does take a village, and together, this village can help give some financial comfort to the Koerte family during their time of need.
