Hello Everyone,

This fundraiser is for my father, Wayne Landry, who has developed an Auto Immune Disease and had been in the hospital for the last 5 months.  We are fundraising for a dialysis machine in order to help him live.  The machine is the only way to keep him alive.

Due to complications from treatments (mainly his immune system), him being self employed and the costs of living at the hospital (yes, believe it or not there are expenses), his body is not functioning properly and his savings have dwindled.  He is unable to work and support himself fully.  The expense ($20,251 for the machine) and other treatments is something we cannot afford on our own.  Please donate to give him a foundation to recovery.

Due to this website taking a percentage of the donations, we will be accepting donations in other forms (email money, cheque, cash) which will allow the donations to go further, if you are more comfortable with that option.  My email is grant.landry.gl@gmail.com.

Thank you for your support,

Grant

More on the story:

Prior to his hospitalization, Dad was flown out to the University of Alberta hospital in Edmonton from his home in Grande Prairie.  At that point he was less than a week away from death due to the level of toxicity in his blood.  Which is why he is in desperate need of constant dialysis treatments.

The dialysis treatment is a 12h process per week that filters the blood in order to remove toxins/antibodies attacking the system.  Without this his immune system becomes weaker and weaker. He was also diagnosed with diabetes roughly a year ago and the auto immune disease on top of this has complicated his quality of life even further.  He is a healthy 60 year old man otherwise, this just goes to show that this can happen to anyone.

UPDATE:

Wayne has been realeased from the hospital in Edmonton and was able to get dialysis at the hospital back home due to a machine clearing up.  We are still fundraising this money for his own machine in order to get him out of the hospital as well as to clear up a spot for someone else who is in desperate need of the machine at the hospital, they are booked solid 24/7.
