Family rallies for Luke on his road to recovery
EMERGENCY staff at Charleville Hospital saved Luke Everitt's life, and without them, he wouldn't be returning home.
The 43-year-old father of two suffered two cardiac arrests on Thursday last week, and after being revived by medical staff, was flown to Brisbane's Princess Alexandra by the RFDS.
"This has been so unexpected, because leading up to this, he didn't have any health issues,” Luke's aunt, Jeanelle Everitt said.
Mr Everitt has been discharged from hospital, and will have the chance to recover at home, but there will be other challenges to face in the coming months.
"Now he will require extensive cardiac rehab, which will take him away from his business for some time, and his family will experience some financial hardship.
"As his extended family, we have started fundraising to help Luke, Kerry-Anne, and their children Indie and William.
"Luke is Charleville born-and bred, and we are hoping people will donate to the cause.”
