Wayne was initially diagnosed with heart failure, which upon further testing was diagnosed as Cardiac Sarcoidosis, and then Sarcoidosis in other organs were also identified. The treatment required apart from medication is to have a defibrillator surgically implanted on May 3rd to alleviate the main side effect of Sarcoidosis, which is “sudden death” due to his heart beat being affected. Wayne is so positive about the best outcome from the medical treatment and focusses on his children and their achievements as the best things in his day. Wayne is desperate to have Brea attend the invitation received today to represent Australia in Belarus World Powerlifting Championships June14 - 25th and Luke in a CrossFit competition on Aug 1st - 7th (if he makes Wisconsin after the next four workouts April 20th - 24th). Any assistance will also be so much appreciated to help cover their costs too.
MORE INFO/BUY TICKETS
Wayne and his family don't know what the total cost of treatment will be or how long Wayne will be out of work, but we felt we needed to start something to help alleviate any financial stress so Wayne can focus on treatment and healing.
