Critical Situation for Mike Watson and family

From Oliver Daily News Today. Oliver native in desperate need of a transplant. The last time I saw this family, they were eating lunch in the lodge on a ski day.

Mike's Dad was well known as a horticulturalist based in Oliver, and I worked with his Mom in the Packinghouse.


Mike Watson, Constellation Brands National Viticulturalist –
Update: Michael heads to Vancouver today and will be flown to Hong Kong for surgery.

Local Viticulturalist with Constellation Brands in Oliver, Mike Watson, has been diagnosed with a rare liver condition and urgently needs a transplant. He has been given 6 months to live. He lives in Kaleden and is a father of 3 young kids. As of today, his specialist in Penticton has indicated that he may need a transplant within the week as he is experiencing complications due to blood clots. His family is looking at all options internationally to expedite the procedure, but costs are in the $100,000 range so friends and family are fundraising.
If you can make any kind of donation from your winery – this truly could save a life.
