Sam's Recovery

On December 29, 2020, due to mechanical issues, Samuel White was in a snowmobile accident on Hunter's Range. He was airlifted to Kelowna General Hospital. There they assessed his injuries and then airlifted Sam to Vancouver General Hospital. His injuries consisted of a broken L1 (lower spine) and a dislocated shoulder.  Sam went into surgery and the medical professionals have now predicted that Sam has an extremely low chance of walking again.

Sam had just begun his post-secondary journey; moving north, away from his family to work and attend school.  His life has now taken an unexpected turn.

Sam’s mom, Shannon, who is a single mother, has taken time off work to be by his side.  Sam is currently at Vancouver General Hospital on the road to his recovery.  Sam will remain at Vancouver General until he is healed enough to begin rehabilitation at GF Strong. 

Sam has a very long journey ahead of him both physically and mentally.  Sam will require many adaptations to accommodate his injuries, wheelchairs, housing, vehicles etc.

There will be many costs associated with adapting to his new way of life.  These costs will be enormous for Sam and his family.

Any contributions received will be used to aid Sam and his family with costs incurred during his journey to recovery.

All donations are greatly appreciated.  We fully understand if you are unable to donate, but please share this page to spread the word of Sam’s Recovery.
