Rouge needs our help to heal

Rouge Fatale. A household name in Nova Scotia and a legendary Drag performer known across Canada. If you are lucky to meet the incredible Human behind the persona then you will know them by Jason Spurrell.

Jason is currently experiencing severe pain, discomfort and mobility issues that have come from having a ruptured disc and broken vertebrae that is pushing in on their spinal cord causing mobility issues and the loss of 2/3 of their hands.
On March 25th 2021. Jason will be going in for serious surgery to repair the ruptured disc. the process and recovery time is normally 6 to 8 weeks. And they will be admitted into inpatient rehab. Through this time Jason will be undergoing rehabilitation and will be mustering up as much strength as they can. They will be unable to work and pay their bills through this time. we have sat down and budgeted what Jason will need just to barely get by and survive through the fight of their life and it is roughly $1185 a month or $2370. This will cover rent and basic bills. this does not include medication costs or transportation. this is the bare minimum needed just to get by so please dig deep and let us all help this incredible human during this difficult time. The past year has been a challenge, a struggle and Jason has been using a cane to get around, Jason has fallen, hurt themselves and has always gotten back up to fight another day.

I do not need to go into detail of what this amazing person has done for their community or the fact they have raised close to a million dollars over 17 years for charities across Canada and the countless lives they have changed. we all know the legacy they have built. the hardest thing to do is to sometimes ask for help. it takes a vulnerable moment in someones life where they can say "i need help" this moment in Jason's life is upon us. We as a community do what we do best. we come together as a family. When one family member needs us we are there. We have laughed together, cried together and rejoiced together. Jason's pain is our pain. Together we can help in this fight. This is one of the most important things we can do. It takes one act of kindness to change a persons life. now let's do many of them. 55099052_1615041196853988_r.jpeg
