A GoFundMe account has been created to assist Marcel Gaudry and his family.
Marcel, 33, is well-known in Lillooet. He grew up here and has continued to live here as an adult.
He was airlifted to Royal Inland Hospital after he was involved in an accident with a lawn mower. The accident led to a partial amputation of his foot. He has been struggling for his life in Royal Inland after blood clots in his lungs traveled to his heart, causing four cardiac arrests and two seizures.
Gaudry was placed in an induced coma but as of yesterday (Sept. 4), he was sitting up on the side of the bed and able to eat pudding and yogurt.
His stay at RIH may be lengthy, and family and friends are praying for a full recovery.

The donations will help with expenses the family is facing at this difficult time. As the News posted this story, the GoFundMe page had raised $1,655 of its $5,000 goal.
