Support Damian On His Road2Recovery

Back in February, Damian became very ill with pneumonia. On February 20th, this prompted a visit to the St. Catharines General Hospital. After some testing, Doctors detected issues with Damian’s heart. Damian was immediately transferred to the Hamilton General Hospital to under go additional testing. Soon after, Damian was put on life support. Doctors believed that Damian would need a heart transplant.

Damian’s immediate family resides in Labrador so as soon as his family received news of his condition, they immediately traveled home to be by his side. During this time, Damian’s family was staying at a nearby hotel because they do not have any relatives or friends that live in the Hamilton area. Damian has since been transferred back to the St. Catharines General Hospital. Damian’s heart has been getting stronger by the day.  He is currently undergoing Blood Transfusions and Kidney Dialysis and is taking medication for heart arrhythmia that has successfully leveled out his heart rate.

We are trying to raise money to help support Damian and his family with previously incurred travel costs such as hotel accommodations, food, flights and medical costs and other debts/payments to ease the financial burden while Damian and his family are unable to work. Any financial support that is offered would be greatly appreciated.
