A Pain Court woman is trying to get her injured son home from Alberta.

Nicole Mason’s 19-year-old son Jean Pierre Lozon was in a car crash two weeks ago that nearly killed him.

Now she’s trying to get him from a hospital in Alberta to London. “The doctors have deemed him fit to transfer with medical transportation with staff,” says Mason. ” And OHIP will not cover it. We have an accepting physciaan in London and they’ve said that’s an out of pocket expense that we have to cover.”

An online auction has been set up to help offset some costs. Details can be found here.
