Support Tyler MacDonald's Family

Update (22 Aug 17)

I have set the beneficiary of this campaign to Tyler's mother, Cara Wilson, so that she is able to receive the funds and put them to use. 

From the bottom of my heart, thank you to all those who donated and for the assistance that you were able to provide to Tyler's family during this incredibly difficult and unfortunate time. 


While attending a music festival in Nova Scotia, Tyler MacDonald unexpectedly suffered from heart failure. After several attempts of CPR, they were able to revive Tyler and bring him to a hospital in Halifax. In the time it took to start Tyler's heart again, he suffered some brain damage and has been in a medically induced coma. Tyler's family and his girlfriend have been with him in the Critical Care Unit of the hospital by his side. 

Tyler's family has chosen to move him to a Palliative Care centre outside of Halifax so that he can be closer to his family. At this time we would like to collect donations to assist his family during this incredibly difficult and distressing situation. We hope to be able to in some small way ease the costs they incur while they wait for news on any change in Tyler's condition. 

Tyler is in for the fight of his life and we all wish that there was more that we could do to assist. The best we can hope for at this time is to be here for him and his family in any way that we can.

Semper Paratus, Tyler.
