On Sunday July 24, 2016 during the semi final game between the Nanaimo Timbermen and Ladner Pioneers, our league was to witness a tragic injury to a fellow player and league governor.  Shawn Swanson has been the governor and a player of the Nanaimo franchise for the past 8 seasons.  His full-hearted dedication goes beyond governor to being a player/teammate on the floor.  On Sunday night, Shawn sustained a fracture of the C1 and C6 vertibrae and according to doctors at Delta Hospital is lucky to be alive and not paralyzed.  Shawn has movement in all of his extremities but has a long road to recovery ahead of him - he will probably be in hospital for a month after the surgery to repair the fractures in his neck but the prognosis looks good.  Please pray for Shawn and his family and hope he gets the best care possible.

The WCSLA is asking you for your help!  Shawn will need financial support from the lacrosse community.  A campaign has been established to raise $20,000 for the Swanson Family, which is accessed BY CLICKING HERE.

Please note that all net proceeds from Game 3 of the Langley-North Shore semi final series Tuesday July 26th at the Langley Events Centre will be donated to the Swanson Family.
