CORNWALL – Cut down in the prime of life, a Cornwall man, 37, is fighting a major battle after being stricken by a major heart attack.

Mike Scott is at in an Ottawa hospital fighting for his life and awaiting a transplant after the attack on Jan. 18.

The ordeal has meant his wife, Tia, has had to make trips to Ottawa to see her husband, who is on a heart and lung machine in a medically-induced coma.

Meanwhile, friends have set up a couple of fund raising pages to help with the costs not covered by health insurance.

There’s a Go Fund Me page and a FunRazr page.
