Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - REAL ESTATE -

We would like to say thank you to ev­ery­one who helped Kaiden and our fam­ily over the past few weeks fol­low­ing Kaiden’s mo­tor ve­hi­cle ac­ci­dent.

Firstly, we want to say the big­gest thank you to Matt (the off-duty am­bu­lance of­fi­cer who was on his way to go fish­ing but never got out to the reef that day) who was first to stop at the scene and help Kaiden.

Your im­me­di­ate ac­tions won’t be for­got­ten, Matt, and we thank you so much.

Also, thank you to Jimmy the off-duty ra­di­ol­o­gist who stopped and also as­sisted Kaiden. We know we are so for­tu­nate to have peo­ple like you liv­ing in our com­mu­nity.

Thank you to the am­bu­lance, fire and po­lice of­fi­cers as well as med­i­cal per­son­nel at Moss­man, Cairns Base and Townsville Hospi­tals for their won­der­ful care. Also a big thank to our im­me­di­ate fam­i­lies, the Sorensen and Blain fam­i­lies, for all your help with look­ing af­ter ev­ery­thing for us, es­pe­cially Kaiden’s brothers Keel and Raine while we were away.

Thank you to all of Kaiden’s and our fam­ily’s friends and rel­a­tives for their calls, mes­sages, vis­its and emails send­ing well wishes, gifts and prayers. Also thank you to Kaiden’s JCU class­mates, Prices Plus work­mates, Dou­glas Mud­dies cricket club­mates and Cricket Far North com­mit­tee and clubs and many oth­ers in our com­mu­nity for all your well wishes and prayers at this time.

Kaiden has bro­ken his jaw in three places on which he has had surgery and is hav­ing fol­low-up ap­point­ments in Townsville.

He will need fur­ther ex­ten­sive re­pair work to his teeth. He has a frac­ture to his right leg and foot, which is in plas­ter, and he is on crutches. He is thank­fully now home and on the steady road to re­cov­ery.

With as­sis­tance with travel from his uni friends from Moss­man he is hop­ing to re­turn to Uni at JCU Cairns at the end of the month. Thank you again ev­ery­one.

Lee & Sue Sorensen, Bon­nie Doon.
