Help George Howard

£14,294 of £100k goal

Raised by 486 people in 28 months
On Friday 23rd May 2014 20 year old only child George Howard was involved in a serious car accident whilst on holiday in South Africa.

He is currently in intensive care in a coma on life support fighting for his life.

Due to unforseen circumstances the insurance company are refusing to pay the heavily rising costs. Each day George is fighting it is cosingt his family close to £15,000 per day.

We're trying to rasie as much money as possible to try and help George, his parents Mark and Marian at this terrible time to help George get the treatment he needs to survive.

For those who don't know George he is a talented, driven, focused and enthusiastic young man who with his infectious personality makes people instantly warm to him. For those who do know George know that no words can describe what a great friend he is to so many.

Any help you can give will be deeply appreciated.

**** George is coming home! The doctors have said he is now well enough to travel home. They are making the necessary arrangements now and he should be back in the next week or so. Once home he will need to remain in hospital (not confirmed which hospital yet) for a period of time before he will be discharged. This is obviously the news we have all being praying for, can't wait to see him! More to follow later ****

I have just been informed that George has been taken of the ventilator and is breathing on his own without the life support. He still has a long way to go but this is great news and a big step forward. I will keep everyone updated as soon as I hear more news.
