A post on Facebook yesterday reported a young man died last week from stent complications after being treated for CCSVI in June. The person who posted it was a neighbour who had raised money for the man to return to his treatment location when problems started. She reported he sought help at both his doctor's office and local hospital in St. Catharine's, Ontario and was turned away.
The man was an immigrant to Canada from Europe and his family is trying to have his body returned for burial. They are poor, but they haven't asked for help. If we get all the details (including his parent's names and contact information), I hope to help them get on paypal or some system for people to help them with this cost.
I am trying to verify all details, including clinic location. I know some people won't like me posting this in advance of having everything in hand, but the truth is we may never know any more without telling others. The one neighbour is our only source of knowing this. Someone else may have been involved at some point -- fundraising in St. Catharine's perhaps? Apparently, they raised money for his return trip to the clinic by selling bracelets.
Please fill out any details you know. Apparently, this man was very private, but someone in Canada needs to answer for what happened to him if they did turn him away.
