Former Minnesota High School Hockey Star Andrew Kerr Needs Our Help After Suffering A Serious Spinal Injury
Andrew Kerr is a former high school hockey player at Duluth East. He helped lead his team to the Minnesota State High School Hockey Tournament 3 times while he was there. The same state tournament that brings us the All Hockey Hair Team year after year. Since Duluth East, he moved on to the USHL to play for the Dubuque Fighting Saints for the past two seasons. But this weekend, **** took a bad turn and now it looks like his life will be altered forever.
I don’t know too many of the details but this is how his friend who passed the story over to me described it. The boys were all out at a lake house over the weekend. They had a water trampoline set up and it was just typical dude ****. Unfortunately, something went wrong and after about 5-10 minutes, they all realized that they didn’t know where Andrew was. Turns out he was still under water. So they rushed to help him, gave him CPR and he was sent to the hospital. First off, A+ response by the friends here. They definitely saved Andrew’s life. They say he didn’t suffer any brain damage but they’re still waiting to see if he’ll be paralyzed or not. Again, this seems like something that could happen to any one of us. It’s summer. It’s the weekend. If you have any sort of a life and you have friends, chances are you’re doing some dangerous ****. Some of it is casual, some of it is ill-advised, but at any given moment, something could go wrong and that’s a ****ty realization of life. It sucks that this had to happen to Andrew but from everything I’ve heard about the kid, he’ll pull through this in one way or another. And that’s where the Stoolies come in.
The Kerr Family’s GoFundMe page has been set up to help them take care of the medical bills during this uneasy time. Their goal is to raise $100,000 and they’ve already raised $55,000 in just over a day.
Gave $25.... Good luck kid
