Please help Casey Townsend &family

Last Thursday the unimaginable happened for the beautiful Townsend family, Casey a hardworking 31 year old fiancé and father to 3 young children arrived to his night shift, upon arrival he started feeling dizzy and disorientated, within a few minutes he was falling in and out of consciousness, by the time the ambulance arrived he was fully unconscious which lead to Case being put into an induced coma.

Friday morning his Dr decided to take out of the induced coma expecting him to wake within the hour ... but he didn’t. During this time the Dr’s were performing extensive tests to try and figure out what has happened but still had no answers.

Case finally regained consciousness late Friday night but was very disorientated, not being able to speak properly and suffering from memory loss and poor hand - eye coordination.

Further tests were conducted and a few days later it was confirmed Case had a stroke.

In the early hours of this morning our poor Case was found on the ground of his hospital room after suffering a much worse stroke overnight.

His beautiful fiancé Sharna has been by his side along with his family who have been taking turns looking after their 3 gorgeous children Sienna, Sonny and Ellie who range in age from 6 years – 11 months.

Case will be in hospital indefinitely as he requires rehabilitation and therapy to retrain his brain for his cognitive impairment, loss of memory, speech and communication skills and hand eye coordination.

We are trying to do our bit to relieve the stress for Sharna by raising money to help their young family to pay their mortgage and bills, one less thing for Sharna to worry about after already postponing their much anticipated wedding in February 2019.

We all know Case as the guy with the biggest smile, the guy that would do anything for his friends and family and even strangers, he’s always looking out for everyone now it’s time for us to help him.

We are asking you to help whether its sacrificing your daily cup of coffee, those new shoes you have your eye on or as much as your budget allows, every bit helps, no donation is too small and will so greatly be appreciated. Please also SHARE SHARE SHARE this post.

Please keep Case and his family in your prayers

Casey Townsend lost his short battle on the 9th of June 2019, the funds raised will continue to go directly to Sharna Townsend, Casey’s wife to ease the pressure from Sharna and her 3 children with bills, mortgage and funeral expenses whilst they grieve the sad passing of her husband and their loving Father.
