On Saturday the 8th of May, Dyson’s life had drastically changed after being involved in an accident while playing football. He damaged his C4 and shattered his C5 bone, which caused severe damage to his spinal cord. From that very moment, Dyson’s life changed forever.
Since the incident, Dyson has had two surgeries and was also in an induced coma. He spent three weeks in the Austin Hospital, in which seven of those days were in ICU and the other fourteen in the spinal ward in recovery.
On the 1st of June, Dyson was moved to The Royal Talbot Rehabilitation Centre where he will spend significant time relearning, training and preparing his body for his life outside of hospital. Unfortunately, during this difficult time,covid-19 has also removed any visitors to see him.
We need help from our friends, family and our community. Our aim is to raise funds to try and pay for all things Dyson requires to adapt to his new lifestyle when he finally arrives home.
A little background on Dyson - He is a passionate sportsman, fitness fanatic, a disciplined and hard working man and the person you could always count on. He lights up the room with his infectious energy and has a heart of gold - he is simply an amazing person.
Please support us and share our story. We want to give him everything he needs to live the best quality life possible, given the new challenges he will be faced with.
We need your support to bring my big brother home!
We pray for the day Dyson can move his hands and legs again.
Do it for Dyson.
