On Tuesday, July 26thour friend Bryan Oakley was involved in a terrible work accident. He was rushed into Victoria General Trauma centre then transferred via Air Ambulance to Vancouver General Hospital, where he went into emergency spinal surgery due to a significant fracture at his C3 and C4 vertebrae. His finacee, Caitlin, was beside him the entire time.
He is currently paralyzed from the neck down. His road to recovery will be long and extensive, but we remain hopeful.
Fernando, owner of Tribeca mortgages, met Bryan through two of his best, long-time clients, Debra and Ken. They referred their son to Fernando a few years ago and he was able to assist Bryan and his wife with the purchase of their first home.
Since then, Fernando has helped Bryan on multiple occasions with his home flipping business, and their families have become very close friends. “He has invited me over many times to talk shop and discuss future plans over beer and pizza, while his little one, two-year-old Ryder, played in the living room,” Fernando recalls. “Bryan is a very skilled carpenter, a loving husband and father, and a great friend.”
