Timmy’s Spinal Injury

$18,811 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 254 people in 2 months
My little brother Timmy, hurt himself in a horrible accident whilst diving into the Narrawong river. He was attended to by paramedics from Portland. Once the seriousness of his injuries were known, he was flown to the Alfred hospital in an ambulance helicopter.

In Melbourne, MRI scans revealed substantial damage to his spinal cord and neck. In just a few days he has undergone multiple surgeries.

We love our Timmy so much and as a family it is so heartbreaking for us to see him like this. We are unsure of the road ahead, but we know that Tim has a long road to recovery to return to some kind of normal life. 

This go fund me is to raise funds to put towards the medical expenses and so that we can provide as much support to Timmy during this tough time.

*UPDATE*
Thanks so much to those incredible people who have already donated to Timmy, it means the world to all of us.

Timmy was at the Alfred ICU for 2 weeks where he had 4 surgeries. He was then transferred to the Austin ICU, taken off the sedation and moved to the spinal ward at the Austin a week later.

Timmy has come such a long way since his first day after being sedated for 2 weeks in ICU, where he was still on a feeding and breathing tube.

5 weeks later, he has now been moved to The Royal Talbot Rehabilitation Centre and started his first week of Physio and OT and we’ve already seen huge improvements in his hand and arm strength and his central balance.

Tim still has a long way to go here at the Talbot but he is being so incredibly strong and determined and we all need to get behind him!

Timmy’s good mates have organised a “Timmy’s day - Poker run” on the 8th June.
We hope Timmy will be able to get a day pass by then to hopefully join!
Please get around this day!
Tickets will be out soon
