Help for Kaz Johnston & Family

$12,860 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 147 people in 32 months
Greetings Friends and Community. Our intent and goal here at this GoFundMe is to raise funds for our beloved Kaz Johnston and his immediete family during a very difficult time of recovery and healing.

On Friday October 14th Kaz (as a pedestrian) was struck by a fast travelling SUV in Victoria BC. He is suffering from severe bodily injuries and brain trauma and is currently in the ICU recovering with family by his side 24/7. Kaz has a long and arduous road to recovery ahead of him and will require the assistance of his family during his accute medical care. We are hoping to raise enough funds to help pay for accomodations for his family while staying in Victoria as well as for any uncovered medical expenses and needs that Kaz may have during the months to come.

While the family and their extended family and friends are hopeful for a full recovery, Kaz has sadly suffered serious head trauma and remains in a fragile state. If a donation is not within your means the family would very much appreciate your prayers and healing energy.

Hold your loved ones tightly and thank you so very much for taking the time to read this. If you can share it with your own friends and community we would be forever grateful.

One Love.

As per GoFundMe's request, I am stating my relationship to the family via a posted update. This is to assure GoFundMe that the money will get to Kaz's family.

I am a family friend and one of Kaz's sister's best friends. I will be withdrawing the funds and transferring them to Tessa (Kaz's Sister) for use during there time of need.

So amazing! Thank you to everyone who has donated to Kaz and his family and to everyone who has been sending their energy and love!

I spoke with Tessa today and she is touched and awestruck by the outpouring of generosity from everyone. Kaz is still in serious condition but he is stable and family is by his side constantly.

The family has found affordable accommodations close to the hospital. Sleep is evasive but they are holding strong together and focusing on Kaz's recovery. He is making advances but it will be a LONG road. At this time, visitation is being restricted to the immediate family.

Updates will continue...Each week will bring more and more recovery!

One Love

Kaz's mom here: I just saw how many people contributed and cried reading all the messages of hope and love for him. I am trying to stay strong and steady especially when caring directly for Kaz , and having all this support behind us really helps me to do just that. I am deeply grateful and humble- thanks to one and all.

...and Brenna, while I was in ICU and Mount Siani with Dave having Dani and Megan look after me was such amazing support. It is such an important job you are doing. I would not have survived so well without them. I remember after a horrible night walking out of the ICU to see Megan standing there with a starbucks in her hand and a hug. Dani arrived with breakfast, and made me eat it. I will never forget that morning and how loved and supported I felt. You can be in hell and in heaven at the same time, with love. So important what you are doing.

I wish we were not so far away and could be more 'hands on'. We are 'hearts on' though. For sure.
