“We have no details as to when he will be released or transferred to his local hospital but we do know that it’s going to be a long painful road to recovery with no inclination on when or even if he will be able to return to work. My mom will need to also take time off work to help him on this journey.”

The GoFundMe account has been set up to collect donations to help the family with financial stress during this difficult time.
