As we noted last week, the WHL has established a trust fund to help out the Bozon family in this difficult time.

Doctors at Royal University Hospital are still slowly waking Tim Bozon from his induced coma as his condition improves during his battle with meningitis, and the WHL has established a trust fund to help his family. Here is the press release:

WHL ANNOUNCES TRUST FUND FOR TIM BOZON

Calgary, AB - The WHL has established a trust fund to assist Kootenay Ice player Tim Bozon and his family with medical and rehabilitation costs. The public can make donations at any BMO Bank of Montreal branch in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Those outside of Western Canada can send donations to the WHL office c/o Tim Bozon, at 2424 University Drive NW, Calgary, Alberta, T2N 3Y9.

Tim Bozon was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at Royal University Hospital on Saturday March 1, 2014 and was diagnosed with Neisseria Meningitis. He remains in ICU however doctors have indicated his condition remains critical but stable and improving. He has been in a coma but doctors are now working to slowly wake him. His family has indicated that Tim has responded to verbal stimuli.

Tim's parents, Philippe and Helene, have been overwhelmed by the e-mail and social media messages from people around the world showing their support for their son. The family is very appreciative and will respond sometime in the near future. The family also wants to express thanks to the doctors and staff at Royal University Hospital for the care Tim has received.

The family appreciates the media's interest in Tim and in helping to educate the community about meningitis. They do not wish to provide any interviews at this time and will coordinate updates to media, when appropriate, through Saskatoon Health Region communications.
