Sean Cox’s family launch GoFundMe
THE family of Sean Cox, the Irish Liverpool fan assaulted before a Champions League game last April, has spoken for the first time about the ‘ life-changing’ impact of his injuries.
The 53-year-old father of three was left fighting for his life after being hit from behind in a random attack just outside Liverpool’s Anfield stadium minutes before a semi-final clash with Roma. Mr Cox suffered severe brain injuries and has been in hospital since the assault. Speaking this week, his wife Martina said his injuries were ‘catastrophic’ and ‘ life-changing for everybody.’
He is currently in the National Rehabilitation Centre in Dun Laoghaire, but after a 12-week intensive programme there Sean and his family will effectively be on their own and using their own resources to pay for the future intensive rehab that will be required.
They have launched a major fundraising effort is underway with an initial target of €2m. Donations to the SupportSean campaign can be made at http://www.gofundme.com/ SupportSeanCox
