Tim Bozon is now in stable condition and has been moved out of the intensive care unit.
The star Kootenay Ice hockey player was admitted to a Saskatoon hospital early this month after being diagnosed with meningitis.
Bozon’s parents said in a media release that he is awake, moving around in his bed, trying to feed himself and trying to speak.
He had been in a coma and doctors were slowly trying to wake him up.
The Bozon family is thankful for the support they are receiving through things like anonymous gifts, restaurant vouchers and fruit baskets.
The WHL has created a trust fund to help the Bozons pay for medical bills. Donations can be made at any BMO Bank of Montreal branch in Western Canada. Donations can be sent to the Tim Bozon Trust c/o Western Hockey League 2424 University Drive NW Calgary Alta., T2N 3Y9.
