Medical Treament Round Two

Hey everyone
Just wanted to give an update. The last couple months Ty has been battling with severe gallbladder pain. (On top of the crohns) He has been waiting a long time to have it removed. The doctors are a bit weary with rushing into this surgery because Ty’s immune system is weak and it could flare up his crohns. So Ty has been left to battle through pain attacks daily. It’s been a frustrating process and hard as Ty’s dependency for his pain medication has increased drastically. It’s hard to know that a lot of the pain might not even be Crohn’s disease but rather gallbladder pain. We got a call today and it might be another 3 months before Ty gets this surgery, and that is just so ridiculous!
So at the moment we are planning on going to The States and getting a specific procedure done (not available in Canada) that will help Ty lower his medication safely. Ty’s feeling an urgency to have this treatment done due to his emotional state being extremely low and that the meds are causing other severe problems as well. We had the exact treatment done last June and Ty was able to come off all his medications and it was amazing how much better he felt and how little pain he had. We were able to do this treatment by the help of Big Rigs Big hearts. The treatment costs $10,000 CAD plus the cost of hotels, flights, and food. We are going to start a Gofundme account to raise money for the second round of this treatment. If anyone would like to help out, it would be greatly appreciated! Also if you’d like more information on the treatment that he needs to have done please send us a private message. Thanks everyone for your prayers and support. The GoFundMe page is at
