Support the Sutton Family's Journey

At 34 years old, James Sutton Sr. suffered a heart attack on May 28, 2017. He was rushed to the Grey Nuns hospital and later transferred to the Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute in Edmonton. He endured over 3 hours of life saving CPR and he is currently recovering from traumatic brain injury. Over the past few weeks, James has been on various forms of life support.

James has beat the odds at every turn of this journey so far. At this time, we are so pleased that James’ full essence is with us – along with his humour and witty banter. He is undergoing daily physio and rehab, in effort to restore his physical motor skills. James, his wife Amanda, and their 3 year old son James Jr. have a long journey before achieving full recovery and rebuilding their lives. 

These proceeds will go directly to the Sutton family to help them financially cope through this challenging time.  Your support will allow time for James and Amanda to focus on recovery and rehab. Any support that you can offer is so gratefully appreciated.
