Our community is once again rallying behind one of our own.
At only 42 years old, Sylvie Maurice suffered a stroke and a brain aneurysm earlier this week.
The mother of two was airlifted to Toronto where doctors went to work.
That’s according to a GoFundMe that’s currently underway, which says health experts were able to clamp the aneurysm after it had ruptured. She is now in an induced coma.
Although the second surgery was considered successful, the GoFondMe indicates Maurice isn’t out of the woods yet.
“She will need to remain in hospital in Toronto for many more weeks under very close observation. The next step in Sylvie’s healing journey will be to assess if she has suffered any mobility and/or brain damage. There still remains an incredibly long healing journey ahead for both Sylvie and her family,” it reads.
That’s where the fundraiser comes into play. A show of support for the family and Maurice in her healing journey.
“The funds raised will help Sylvie’s children and family travel and stay in Toronto. The emotional and physical support that Sylvie will require will be expensive for her family,” states the fundraiser.
The funds will also help with the added stress of expenses and bills which will be occurring in the following weeks.
In less than 24 hours since the fundraising started, over $4,000 has been raised.
