Support for RT Dan McLean

RT Dan McLean from Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops was injured in a hunting accident on April 18th. A bullet is lodged in his spine, leaving him paralysed from the chest down. The respiratory department at Royal Inland has started a gofundme to help him and his family cover the costs required to get Dan home.
Our thoughts are with Dan, his family, and our RT family in Kamloops during this difficult time.
