A crowd-funding page has been kicked off to help raise funds to support a young Richmond man, who has been rendered a quadriplegic after a car accident.
Just over five weeks ago, 20 year-old Adam Mogg was rushed to Vancouver General Hospital following a serious car accident.
His extensive injuries has left him quadriplegic, with a long road of rehabilitation ahead.
According to family friend Debbie Bielech, who started the gofundme page, Mogg is someone that “we love and cherish.”
“An aspiring actor. Beloved friend. Supportive son. Talented fastball player. His spirit is bright and resilient,” she wrote.
“While he may feel emotionally and physically broken, his community can see the light in these cracks. We believe love will heal.”
Mogg’s mother, Sherrie, added Bielech, is a “symbol of courage. Being a single mom on disability, Adam has supported his mother through her own struggles. Now, she is asking for the community’s help. By donating to Adam, Sherrie will be relieved from some financial pressures and be able to constantly be by her son’s side.”
Bielech hopes donations to the campaign will give Mogg the “chance to live his best life- psychologically, emotionally, and physically. These funds will help to pay for medical and mental needs, including: an accessible van and new housing, lifts, equipment, caregivers and respite workers, medical supplies not covered by the government, and much more.”
Words of encouragement and support, as well as donations, have been pouring into the page, which so far has raised $26,329 of its $250,000 target.
