Help Liam Ferguson - Suffering Severe Brain Trauma

Donation protected

We need your help. Liam needs your help. Liam was out in the backyard on Sunday, August 23, helping with some landscaping when a tree fell on him and hit his head. He went unconscious, has a deep wound on the back of his head, experienced immense bleeding. The paramedics arrived within 15 minutes and transported him to Danbury Hospital where they sedated and intubated him, and a neurosurgeon performed life saving surgery to help with the large amount of swelling that was/is occurring in his brain.

His vital signs are stable, he is in the ICU, but he has a very severe brain injury. He is in a medically induced coma. He will be airlifted to Yale-New Haven Hospital when he is stable enough to do so. There they'll take care of him in the neuro-ICU. We are hoping for the absolute best, while the surgeon has communicated to prepare for the worst.

We are here as a family with him, sending up all our prayers, giving him all of our love, and asking for all of your support as well. Liam is a fighter with so much energy. He will push to get through this.

The brass tacks: Liam does not have health insurance. He's made several attempts to get health insurance over the past year and it never went through. The cost to take care of him will quickly add up.

Liam was a volunteer firefighter for 10+ years, graduate of Newtown High School and Eastern Connecticut State University. He is a firecracker, an Energizer bunny, a "pissa", the funniest person we know. He loves to ski and golf. His love language is acts of service - he'd do anything for his people.

This is the fight of Liam's life. We cannot even start to fathom what it would be like to live without him. Please, if you are able, consider helping our brother, son, nephew, brother-in-law, friend, who we love so so very much. Please send your love, your good vibes, and say prayers to whomever or whatever you believe in. Thank you. ❤️
