In the months to follow his horrific encounter with a mother bear, Jeff Haydukewich and his family will be enduring extreme financial hardship. With Jeff in the hospital receiving treatment, his wife Marita is left to support their family and travel back and forth to Saskatoon, friends have rallied together to set up and donate through Go Fund Me, bringing in over $9,000 in just three days. While that may seem like a lot, anyone that has had an injured spouse can tell you that amount does not go very far.
