Go Fund Me for Jeff Turner
Submitted By James Beard on Monday, February 11, 2019
One of our SLT hockey families needs our help. 

On Jan. 31, 2019, Jeff Turner was severely injured when he was hit by a train while working on the railway.  Jeff was taken to the Trauma Unit at Sunnybrook Hospital with a number of serious injuries, including broken heel, 2 broken legs (left is compound fracture), broken pelvis, compound fracture of left arm, along with major soft tissue damage and some internal complications. 


He has endured a number of surgeries to date but is now stable and things appear to be heading in the right direction.  Jeff’s wife Rossi and 4 children, Ethan, Briar, Rowan (Jag) and Kate are thankful that things aren’t worse than they are, however they realize they have a long road ahead.   In the coming months Jeff will require additional surgeries, extended hospital stays and will later be moved to a rehabilitation facility for extensive rehabilitation as part of the recovery process. During this time Rossi will be taking a leave from work in order to provide care for Jeff and their 4 children. Without the benefit of a dual income during this period, there will be financial strains added onto an already difficult situation and Jeff and his family will need our endless support at this time. 

We hope that you'll help us raise funds that help to support Jeff, Rossi, and their children, through what we know will be an incredibly difficult road to recovery. Any financial stress we can relieve through this Go Fund Me campaign will allow them to focus their attention on where it should be - on healing.

Thank you for any and all support you are able to give at this time.
