Unfortunately, his fall aggravated a preexisting injury (unknown at the time) to his neck/upper spine area and he was air ambulanced to Vancouver. Derek had a lengthy surgery, which went well and he is now recovering in Vancouver General. It will be some time (estimated 6-12 months) for Derek to heal and gain mobility.
This page has been created in response to the many offers of help and support. It is the intent that the funding raised will support Rajan and their kids, Jase and Sohaani, to travel back and forth to Vancouver, during his recovery period.
Today, at the beginning of week 2, we can say that Derek is making progress and every day we are hopeful to see more and more.
We are all thankful for all the well wishes & support from family & friends !
