Hi I am Judene Smith, fiancé of Duwayne Copeland who is currently hospitalised with a massive head blow and broken leg which landed him in a coma for 2 weeks after receiving injuries from a fatal motor vehicle accident in which his friend died. Following three head surgeries, Duwayne woke from his coma after spending 3 weeks in the hospital but up to this day has not made full recovery. He has to be fed through a tube as he is unable to eat or move about.
This whole situation is taking a toll on the entire family as his mother and relatives are struggling not to break down because it was only last August that he was in another accident in Jamaica. He was hit off his bike and suffered severe damage to the same leg that is now affected. He was slated to return to Jamaica last Saturday before he got another medical setback. When he woke up and they removed the bandage, basically half of his head was really swollen and he was still unconscious. They gave him a trachea, which helped him to wake up from the coma. They later removed him from the critical ward but three weeks ago they had to do another head surgery on him. They did two [previous] head surgeries, one was to lift back the bone and he was to come home this week. But they said air got into the wound so he cannot go on a plane right now until they reduce the air inside.
Copeland and I were set to be married after he proposed to me last September but all our wedding plans have turned into daily hospital visits. However, all that matters now is that he is alive and I am very grateful to God for spearing his life because it’s really a miracle. I have been residing in the Cayman Island since 2018 after migrating from Jamaica and my fiancé joined me recently for us to make our bond official but one turn of event has changed our entire fate.
We are running out of time in coming up with the funds to clear his hospital bills which is now over 300,000 CI and is hoping to find somewhere in Jamaica, our home country, for him to rehabilitate. Therefore, we are also seeking the public’s assistance to purchase a hospital bed, valued somewhere between $250,000-$300,000, in the event they are unable to register him into a rehab centre.
ALL your generous contributions will be greatly appreciated! Thank you.
