Leeland was playing with his sister Wednesday evening and a freak accident happened resulting in a hemorrhage of his Middle Cerebral Artery. This caused an epidural hematoma and an MCA Watershed Stroke. Since Wednesday, he has received multiple surgeries at Rady’s Children’s Hospital to relieve the pressure on his brain. These included the removal of a blood clot and part of his skull. Though permanent damage has already been done to the right side of his brain, the current efforts are to protect and save the rest. He is in a medically induced coma to give his body time to heal.
Leeland is a bright student and a caring friend. He is an incredible athlete and a loving brother.
It will be a long recovery journey and we would love to use this GoFund Me to support the family through this process. I, Melanie Lupica, his 3rd grade teacher, will update the GoFundMe page as more information is known about his recovery.
For now, please keep Leeland and his family in your hearts.
His family, Maggie and Casey, will be the beneficiary of the funds raised.
