People are raising money online for Battlestar Galactica actor Michael Hogan’s medical care after he had a serious fall in February resulting in a serious brain injury.
According to a GoFundMe page created on behalf of his wife Susan Hogan, the actor has been suffering from paralysis on his left side, memory loss and other health problems from a fall on Feb. 17 that caused bleeding in his brain. He is currently being cared for at the Berkley Care Center in North Vancouver, Canada.
“Though it is hard to imagine, I think it’s fair to say it is unlikely Michael will be able to work again. And for these past seven months, neither has Susan, given the circumstances,” the fundraiser description, written by Horgan’s neighbor Shari Ulrich, reads. “She is facing an uncertain future to navigate other than knowing that the financial demands will continue to be great.”
Fans quickly took notice of the fundraiser, and they began donating money to help reach the overall goal. The donations will be used to fund the family’s needs, including long-term care, medications, adaptive clothing and other expenses required to help Hogan return to his daily life.
