This is Simon's story

. This is Simon's story.  At the age of 33 Simon was shoveling snow from his driveway when he felt searing pain in his back.  The pain got worse over the course of the day and he finally relented and went to the ER, where after a few hours and a couple of tests he just decided to go home.  An hour after he arrived home he received a call and was told he had to rush back to be operated on, one of his heart valves had burst.  This would be the first of several open heart surgeries he would undergo over the next 10 years.  His suffers from collagen vascular disease. Scleroderma is an autoimmune disease that can affect: Skin,heart,lungs,digestive tract,o ther organs
 He has just undergone his 6th open heart surgery and is bed ridden, the medication is very heavy and he is asleep and in pain most of the time.  In 2 weeks since his release from the hospital he has lost 30 lbs and is in need of post-operative physical therapy to help him heal.  Simon is only 43, the father of two adolescents 14 & 16, because of his young age, he is not eligible for any government assistance because they cater to the elderly.  Please help raise the funds needed to help the family provide Simon with some in home care thank you.

 

Voici l’histoire de Simon. À 33 ans, il pelletait la neige dans son entrée quand il a senti un mal intense dans son dos. The mal a empiré pendant la journée et il a décidé d’aller à l’urgence mais après quelques heures et quelques tests il est retourné à la maison. Une heure après son retour, l’hôpital a téléphoné et on dit qu’il devait revenir pour subir une opération d’urgence car son aorte éclatait. Ce fût la première opération à cœur ouvert suivi de plusieurs dans les dernières 10 années. Une de ses conditions est la maladie vasculaire du collagène, sclérodermie est un problème auto-immunitaire qui affecte :
la peau,le cœur,les poumons,le système digestif et autres organes.
Il vient de subir sa sixième opération pour éclatement d’artères et il est alité car la médication très forte qu’il prend  le fait dormir  et si réveillé il ressent de la douleur. Depuis sa sortie de l’hôpital il y a deux semaines, il a perdu 30 lbs et a un urgent besoin de thérapie physique pour l’aider à améliorer  son niveau de vie, il n’est pas vraiment éligible aux programmes du Gouv en raison de son jeune âge, ses programmes sont plus réservés aux ainées. S.V.P, cette levée de fonds est pour aider Simon à recevoir des soins à la maison dont il a besoin. Merci.
