World renowned Stuntwoman Dayna Grant (Wonder Woman, Mad Max, Snow White, Xena, Ash vs Evil Dead) recently sustained a head injury while on set filming for an upcoming series/film.
After experiencing symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury Dayna was sent for Neuroimaging CT and MRI scans. Unfortunately receiving the devastating diagnosis of an 8mm Aneurysm and upper spinal (neck) injuries.
Surgeons recommend immediate surgery. As is often the way with these things Insurance and liability are a maze of red tape and potentially life threatening delay through the Public Health system.
Immediate, private Surgery costs $NZ60,000.
We would like to give Dayna’s friends, film Whanau (family) including the Stunt community and fans of her work around the world the opportunity to help.
Dayna is not only a World class stunt woman, but a mother of 3 (her youngest, Ryder is 7) and pioneer for the arts within her community. She runs a stunt school based in New Zealand and works with youth.
Thank you in advance for your contribution!
