Crowd funding campaign launched to assist Gino Odjick’s family

The family of former Vancouver Canucks left winger Gino Odjick is seeking support from the public to assist with the travel costs of traveling to Vancouver to be with Gino.

 

A “Gino Strong Fund” has been set-up on crowd funding website Go Fund Me, and it has already raised nearly $7,000 of the campaign’s ultimate goal of $30,000.

 

Donations can also be made to support aboriginal youth education and wellness initiatives through the Canucks For Kids Fund.

 

On Thursday evening, the Vancouver Canucks website released a letter written by Gino, revealing that he is suffering from a rare terminal heart illness. AL amyloidsis is causing abnormal deposits of protein in his heart, in effect hardening his heart over time.

 

There is no cure and doctors have given him months, maybe weeks to live.

 

On Sunday, fans will be gathering outside Vancouver General Hospital to perform a flash mob in support of Gino.

Keith Ranville, Please go to go fund me to help Mr. Gino Odjick and his family in there time of need and lets shoot beyond the $ number aimed at, folks  🙂
