Community fundraiser on for boy in quad accident

A young man who will be spending some time in hospital while his arm heals after a quad accident is in need of money.

On May 4, Braiden Wann suffered a broken arm in two places, loss of skin to part of his lower and upper left arm and one blood transfusion, says details on the page Helping Hands Up for Braiden’s Recovery on the gofundme.com website.

“He will have to undergo several upcoming surgeries to fix the skin and put his arm back together, he has also suffered some nerve damage,” it says.

“Currently holding his arm together are 36 staples, two plates and pins.”

The page was made to help his family because he will be required to stay in hospital in Vancouver for quite a long time and for them to be away from home and work can become quite a burden on family finances. The goal amount to raise is $3,000 and as of late last week, 19 people had raised $1,550 in 10 days.
