This past June, Daryll Mahon was injured in an accident involving a log splitting machine that ultimately lead to the amputation of his right arm above the elbow. Please help us support Daryll with the overwhelming costs of a new prosthetsis and therapy.

My name is Rob Archibald and our family has had the pleasure of meeting one of the nicest, hardest workers you will ever meet.  His name is Daryll Mahon and he is a married father of 2 adult children who has spent his life working as a craftsman, in the timber field and as a overall handyman.  He has gone out of his way numerous times, not only with the quality of his work, and his work ethic, but with the way he treats people and always is there to help out.

Unfortunately near the end of June (2015) Daryll was involved in a freak accident while working with a wood splitter.  The accident happened near Bobcaygeon and others who were with Daryll were able to call 911 where he was airlifted to Toronto.  Unfortunately due to poor weather conditions the flight took longer than it should of and by the time he arrived at St. Mike's hospital the doctors were unable to save his lower arm.  Daryll's right arm ended up being amputated above the elbow.

While Daryll is now out of the hospital and at home in Lindsay, ON and seems to be holding up well, he is very anxious to get back to work as he needs to not only provide for everyday things, but also the major costs involved in obtaining a prosthetic arm and the therapy that goes along with it.

What we are hoping to do is to raise some money to give to Daryll and his wife to hopefully cover some (or all) of his medical costs.  He is the kind of guy that would give you the shirt of his back, or come and help you when you called him at any hour, and we just want to see that get is taken care of too.

Please, if you can donate anything, contribute.  Anything would help and if you can't afford it right now if you could pass this on to others that might be able to the Archibald family would really apprecite it. 

Thanks,

Rob & Shannon Archibald and Family
