Calgary bride suffers brain hemorrhage on Colombian honeymoon
CALGARY – An online fundraising campaign launched to help a Calgary couple after their honeymoon took a tragic turn has now surpassed its fundraising goal.
Recently married Peter Ingram and Lihsuan Law were honeymooning in Colombia on November 16th, when Law suffered a massive brain hemorrhage.
The incident hospitalized Law, who has now undergone numerous surgeries and tests.
The young woman is in the ICU at E.S.E. Hospital in Medellin, Colombia, but her family hopes to move her back to Canada as soon as possible to ensure she receives the best medical care available.
The online fundraising campaign was established to help pay for Law’s transportation back to Canada, as well as her medical costs. The cost of flying her back to Canada alone is expected to be more than $100,000 and won’t be covered by her insurance.
According to the online campaign, all donations made through the fund will go directly to Law’s care.
Their fundraising goal had been set at $164,000 but was later changed to $102,000.
Travis Dickie worked with Law for several years at a café in downtown Calgary, and hopes people will step up to donate.
“[Peter is] doing the best a new husband can… a man who loves his wife. He’s staying strong, he’s by her side,” says Dickie. “He’s updating us regularly… but ultimately, what do you do? You know? You’re hit with massive bills from insurance companies that just won’t pay up or just don’t cover this part of something.”
