Baby Grant in Critical.

Postby 1+2=3boys on Tue Feb 03, 2015 8:03 am

I'm sure by now a lot of you have heard about the tragedy regarding a mom and a baby found up island in a river. Well this family is friends of mine. My heart breaks for them and all of us that know them. Right now our friend Doug is by his sons side at BC Children's Hospital watching his son fight for his life. He is going to need a lot of positive thoughts, prayers & support... Support not only emotionally for the fact he just lost his wife and his son is in critical condition but support financially as well. I am very thankful to this complete stranger (Samantha Dimery) that has started a GoFundMe page for Doug and Baby Grant. Please consider donating to my friend and his son to help take any financial burden from him as he needs to be in Vancouver with his son now.
Thank You for Reading... Trisha Cunliffe.

My heart aches for this family's loss. Hoping baby Grant pulls through - hoping for whatever miracles are possible.

How sad. I hadn't read that the mother had passed away. Does anyone know yet how they ended up in the river? Praying for baby Grant and his papa!

^No one knows yet. They're investigating all possibilities.

*** Update on Baby Grant***
Baby Grants dad had made a update today...

Tonight grant opened his eyes and had a look around. I was so happy to be at his side. The professionals at BC children's hospital are doing an amazing job helping my little miracle along. Today was a good day.

Again thank you everyone for your support.

I Just wanted to give another update on Baby Grant...

Nice news - Grant has moved out of the ICU into the pediatric ward.
At this point Grant is breathing and virtually eating on his own now. Next step - rehab.

*********** We are doing a Bottle Depot Fundraiser************
We are trying to raise more funds for Doug and Baby Grant while Doug is over in Vancouver at Children's Hospital to be by Grants side. Please take your cans/bottles to the bottle depot (4261 Glanford Ave, 655 Queens Ave, 3961 Quadra St) And tell them at the beginning of the transaction that you would like to donate your bottles to "Baby Grant".

Or you can make a donation by visiting the GOFUNDME link here:

Thank You to everyone for your positive thoughts.

Thrilled to hear of the bottle depot fundraiser! Will be doing a drop this weekend. Also happy to hear the little guy is improving - hoping his dad finds the support he needs in the years ahead.
