Brooks family recovery fund

On the late afternoon of Sunday July 23rd 2017, the Brooks family were returning home after a day at the public pool. Husband and father of 2 Cam Brooks walked his dogs down to the creek on their property to check their irrigation pump, which was a regular occurance for Cam. The two dogs Bella and Rocky playing by the creek jumped in to cool off, as they did Cam heard a loud yelp and saw his beloved dogs belly up in the water and suddenly he felt a surge of electricity through his body. His instinct was to turn and climb out of the water. Holding a root he pulled himself out of the electric current and managed to climb up to the house and with the last bit of energy he called for his wife April. In shock April called 911 where medical responders air lifted Cam to Kelowna hospital. He was sent home with no visual injuries but the doctors are unsure of further physical and psychological damage. The trauma of the incident, loss of his dogs and the fear of what if is still so very real for the family. Cam and April have two beautiful Children, Aemon 2 years old and Armoury just shy of 6 months old. Cam is an amazing father, husband and provider. He loves to work around the house, loves to be outside with his animals. The family just recently before this accident lost their goat, bunnies and chickens in a bear attack. This family needs a break. With Cam recovering he is unable to work and their family desperately needs time to heal. Money raised would go to bills and food so that financial stress doesnt have to be another burden for this family.
