Stefan is a fun loving, caring person who is always up for a laugh or to help out.
Stefan had a horrific accident on Saturday 13th February, 2021 diving into a pool. He sustained a spinal cord injury from hitting his head on the bottom of the pool. Stefan shattered his C6 vertebrae and broke C5 and C7. He has had two major surgeries to stabilise his neck and replace C6 with a titanium cage. Stefan has been left paralysed from the chest down. We are very blessed he has already come a long way - off the ventilator - speaking - eating - drinking, however this is an enormous life changing injury.
Stefan will require significant rehabilitation, medical treatment, mobility equipment, not to mention, ongoing care and support. It would be great to have the opportunity to explore alternative treatments and therapies available.
We ask for this help in order to give Stefan the best future possible and provide him with his independence, he is not currently eligible for any government assistance once his hospital stay is complete.
Your generosity and support is greatly appreciated.
