Helping one of our own

A few days ago, a member of ours was rushed to emergency after experiencing a life changing medical emergency. They currently are in ICU and intubated. Surgeries have been done and they continue to make progress. 

This member is on-call and has been in the service for a very long time, a proud and dedicated paramedic. Sadly, being an on-call member, they do not have STIIP or LTD. 

I have spoken to their spouse, and at this time, they wish for the matter to remain amongst a small group of family and close friends. This member is extremely strong and stoic, and until the time comes when they can make the decision to make this public, we will respect their wishes. However, they still need our support. 

Please, if you can, make a donation to help our member. Consider working an overtime shift and donate the income here. Help their spouse be off work to be at their side. Help their children have food on the table and continue to live their lives as uninterrupted as possible. 

They would do the same for us.
