Help Bring Bay's Remains Back Home

Thanks for visiting this page. My friends Tim and Bay who are a couple, traveled to Greece on what had been a dream vacation of theirs for years. On the last day of their trip, Bay woke up with a fever and was very confused. He had been experiencing migraines the last few days but thought it was from the sun overexposure. They managed to get to the airport but by that time, Bay didn't have the energy to walk and didn't know who Tim was. They immediately went to the hospital. Bay has a preliminary diagnosis of spinal meningitis. The doctors have run other tests but the results have yet to come back. In the meantime, Bay has been getting antibiotics intravenously and has been unconscious since then. Doctors have told Tim that Bay may be in the hospital for a minimum of two weeks and they have to see if responds to medication. As you can imagine, Tim is overwhelmed. Both him and Bay are going to be out of work for a minimum of 2.5 weeks. Bay, much longer depending on how he responds/recovers. Given that Bay works in the beauty industry and is independent, he does not have insurance that will cover this hospitalization/treatment. We are asking for your help if you can, financially. To help cover medical costs, lodging costs and travel costs (they do not have travel insurance). If not, prayers are appreciated. As well, if you have any tips on how to handle this medical emergency in Greece, please let us know. Thank you...
