Help Steven Fight for his Life!

As most of you know, my brother Steven Shandrowsky is a single parent struggling to support his son Brayden.  He had found himself in financial hardship over the last year, after having major surgery and suffering multiple complications with the main artery (Superior Mesenteric Artery) that supplies blood to his bowels last year!

What you don't know, is that he has been in the High Acuity ICU at the Abbotsford hospital for the past 3 weeks ❤️FIGHTING FOR HIS LIFE ❤️.

Last year, Steven had an abdominal bypass in order to restore blood flow to his bowels due to a blockage in his abdominal artery. Unfortunately,  the graft collapsed on itself 3 weeks ago.

Steven underwent another abdominal bypass with a synthetic artery 2 weeks ago. Tragically, the surgery was  unsuccessful, as his body developed an additional clot that once again blocked the artery and caused a massive abscess in his small intestine.  This required a 3rd surgery in which they removed the clot along with the majority of his small intestine.  He then had a 4th surgery on Saturday to replace the contaminated synthetic artery with a vein from his leg.  He has now had a 5th surgery in which they have had to remove an additional 10cm of his small bowel. He remains heavily sedated and intubated, as he will go back to surgery later this week to ensure everything is ok before they close him up.

Steven has now been off work for over a month with no income or extended medical benefits. We are unsure if he will have acquired enough hours from work to qualify for medical EI again.

Steven has a very long road to recovery (ahead of him. His expenses (medical and personal) will be costly. If you would like to help Steven with his recovery, I know he would greatly appreciate it.

I realize times are hard but any amount will help. Most of all Steven needs your prayers for a quick recovery, so that he can hang out with his precious and loving son Brayden again!
