Friends of Jamaican athlete, Preston Matthews, at the St. Mary’s University in Halifax, Canada, have organized a fundraiser to help with his medical expenses.
Last month, friends discovered Matthews semi-responsive in his apartment and rushed him to the hospital.
Doctors have been unable to provide a diagnosis, though its suspected it may be a lupus related problem.
Matthews has been in the hospital ever since, but was discharged temporarily to attend the fundraiser, yesterday.
His friends have also launched a go-fund-me online campaign with a goal to raise 10-thousand us dollars.
