Coreys Battle

In the early hours of Sunday 24th May, Corey was viciously assaulted and left alone and unconscious out the front of his own home. When his wife Ange awoke and noticed he wasn’t in bed, she went looking for him and found him in a neighbor’s carport. With the help of a friend they rushed him to Karratha Hospital where the extent of his injuries become better known. In the assault Corey has suffered a bleed on the brain, air on the brain, multiple skull fractures and a fracture in his face.

After delays due to a large storm hitting the West Coast at the time and some issues with the plane, Corey was airlifted over night to the Royal Perth Hospital where the trauma team where waiting for him. At this stage he is still heavily sedated with more information on his condition to come when he has been assessed by the team at the Royal Perth Hospital.

Corey has recently been working for himself, meaning he now has no income what so ever. On top of that Ange has only recently started a new job after losing her last position at the start of the Coronavirus crisis, so she has no paid leave. It is unknown how long Corey’s recovery is going to take, which mean it’s unknown when they will again have an income. But as we know the cost of raising a 2-year-old, the rent, the car repayments, the insurances etc don’t stop. On top of that will be many medical expenses as well as the cost of Ange and Lexi being in Perth for the foreseeable future while they support Corey in hospital.

We know its currently tough times for everyone but we are asking for people to please donate what you can to help this beautiful family in this upcoming battle that no-one should have to go through.48290540_159036460352077_r.jpeg48290540_1590364652885072_r.jpeg48290540_159036469594009_r.jpeg
