Friends rally around coma victim

A young coma victim’s cricketing friends are going to bat on his behalf to try and raise money for his treatment.

Those close to Daniel Morris are doing their best to back the courage the 23-year-old has always shown as an opening batsman and as a policeman by raising as much money as possible to help him in the fight he now faces.

It is five weeks since Daniel was cruelly struck down by Cadasil, a disease that affects the muscle walls in the small arteries that provide blood flow to the brain.

He was taken to Miami by air ambulance and has been in a coma there ever since while his mother Annie waits anxiously for any improvement.

Friends of Daniel, a squad member of the national cricket team, are rallying round to raise money so he can be transferred to the specialist Mayo Clinic in Florida.

And they are calling on the public to come out and support a special cricket match Sunday between representatives of the two teams Daniel has played for here.

The Daniel’s Police XI and Daniel’s By-Rite XI game gets under way at noon.

Anyone wanting to make contributions or requiring further information can contact Pastor Al Ebanks at Agape or David Wight on 927-5154.
