Sebastian is a darling, happy 4 1/2 year old boy and eldest child of 3 to Andrea Schick and Vili Bogdan.
Right now, Andrea and Vili are going through every parent's worst nightmare.
This past week, Sebastian fell gravely ill and was airlifted from Regina to Edmonton Children's Hospital.  Sebastian's condition is currently critical. He is on lung and heart support and fighting full septic shock.  
There are infinite concerns and his road to recovery will not be quick nor easy.
This family is amazing. They are always wanting and willing to help others. Always there with big smiles and warm hugs.  And always with energetic enthusiasm.
We are hoping to provide Andrea and Vili and their family with support to allow them to be together and limit the financial stresses that go along with this terrible circumstance.
They will need to be away from their home in Regina for some time, as well as family expenses, additional medical expenses, travel expenses, etc.
We hope and pray to see all 5 of their lovely faces smiling very soon.
Thank you so much

We are full of gratitude for all of the incredible support for Sebastian and his amazing family.
Sebastianslovearmy you are extraordinary and wonderful!! Thank you!!
Sebi has shown some signs of improvement in the past week. These gains have been celebrated!
His heart and lungs continue to show limited improvement and the medical teams are working so hard to help Sebi. Sebastian continues to be on the ECMO heart and lung support.
Sebi and his family continue to show amazing strength and fight. They need our continued support to hold them up and encourage them in this terribly difficult time.
Please continue to share. Andrea and Vili have a undetermined path in front of them. Financial support will be crucial to allowing them to make the adjustments (work, home, etc.) that they need moving forwards.
PLEASE continue to share.
Donate blood/plasma/platelets if you are able.
Send prayers for healing to Sebi and strength to his family.
Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts.

An Update from Andrea's sister, Julie:

We do not have words eloquently enough to express our thanks to all of you who have so generously given to our family in this desperate time. It’s almost incomprehensible how our lives have changed in 11 days.

Tuesday morning, October 31, Sebastian’s extended family received an SOS message- Sebastian was in the hospital. Throughout the day, things went from critical to the stuff of nightmares. Sebastian was intubated, resuscitated multiple times, placed on ECMO, had blood clots, and finally stabilized for transport to Edmonton. Many of you have followed the journey since then.

Our Little Hero Sebastian is a fighter. He’s fighting hard right now and has so many challenges. We now now that this is going to be very lengthy process. Andrea, Vili, Sebastian and family will be in Edmonton for many weeks if not months. In light of this, this financial support is a godsend!

Andrea and Vili have faced this crisis with more grace, courage and determination than humanly possible. But maybe that’s why— they have faith in the Heavenly Father, and He sustains then. But we, Sebastian’s family, have also seen the Father’s hands in human form. In fact there’s a whole heavenly anatomy being seen here on earth: arms that have hugged, veins that have donated blood, eyes that have cried with us, mouths speaking words of encouragement, and hands giving generously and openly. The generosity seen is staggering! There aren’t enough ways to say thank you. But we sincerely THANK YOU!

We recognize the generosity of family, friends, friends of friends, and strangers, whom I now think as friends we haven’t yet met. So thank you so much for your heartfelt generosity. We invite you to keep following the Sebastian’s Love Army Facebook page for updates. It’s amazing to see a community pull together like this, and it is has in fact proven to be a very global community.

The journey ahead is long, But the people surrounding us have been a constant source of encouragement and support. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your incredible generosity. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

With love,

Sebastian’s family

Thank you for all the incredible generosity. We are continuing to push forwards with this fundraiser. Sebastian has had numerous procedures and a few major surgeries in the past few days. These surgeries have been steps forward in his recovery but he continues to remain in critical condition.
I will post an update from the family in the next day or so. Please keep sharing and donating. There is no doubt the funds will be very much needed.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
We continue to pray and do everything we can to hold this family up.
