Last Wednesday 12 year old Boston Woods was biking at the intersection of Hespeler Road and Can-Amera Parkway when he was hit by the flatbed tractor trailer, which was making a right turn onto Can-Amera from Hespeler. He was taken by ambulance to Cambridge Memorial Hospital with life threatening injuries and then later flown to McMaster Hospital. He suffered broken legs, a broken pelvis, broken elbows, and internal bleeding. He’s now in stable condition and heading into surgery again today. You can read updates on his condition here.
Boston’s family & friends are honouring him by donating blood at the United Kingdom Club Tuesday from 2:30-7:30pm and Boston’s lacrosse team is asking the community of Cambridge and beyond to join them and donate in Boston’s honour.
There will be a guest book at the clinic for any donors to sign in with to say their donation is in honour of Boston that Canadian Blood Services will be presenting to the family after the clinic.
If you can’t make it out next week but want to make a donation, call 1-888-2-DONATE or head to Blood.ca to make an appointment. Please use Partner ID INHO051544 when you register and it will count for Boston honour.
Friends of the family have also started a Go Fund Me page to help with costs associated with stays in Hamilton while Boston undergoes surgeries at McMaster.
