Hello everyone!

We’re reaching out to you with a heartfelt plea on behalf of our mate Andrew Lambropoulos (Rambo), and his family. This is a story of hope, sacrifice, resilience, and the power of mates.

Andrew, a husband, a father, a mate - is facing an uphill battle as he fights against a life-threatening medical condition. His doctors have determined that a kidney transplant is his best chance at survival and a healthy life, and in a true act of friendship and sacrifice, David Rogowski (Rogo) has come forward to donate his kidney to save Andrew’s life.

But the challenges don't end there. Andrew, Lisa, and their kids Jack (5) and Florence (2) live in the UK, and the expertise for his complex surgery is in Australia. For this life-saving procedure to take place, Andrew and his family need to travel to Australia and remain here for upwards of 6 months to ensure a successful recovery.

This is where we, as a strong, tight-knit community, can make a tremendous difference. The financial burden of relocating, securing housing, and covering living expenses in Australia is overwhelming, especially when added to the emotional stress of a medical crisis. That's why we've set up this GoFundMe campaign – to rally around Andrew and his family and provide them with the support they so desperately need during this trying time.

How Your Contribution Can Help:

Housing: A comfortable place to stay is crucial for Andrew, Lisa and the kids during their stay in Australia. Your generous donation can help alleviate the financial strain of accommodation costs.

Living Expenses: From daily meals to transportation, medical supplies, and incidentals, the day-to-day costs of living away from their UK home can add up quickly. An added complexity is that Lisa needs to travel on an extended tourist visa, so working is not allowed. Your contribution can ease the burden.

Medical Expenses: While the medical procedure itself will be covered, there may be additional medical expenses, prescriptions, and follow-up appointments that need financial support.

Your Support Matters:
By contributing to this campaign, you're not only helping two friends navigate a challenging medical journey, but you're also playing a significant role in supporting Andrew and his family, providing peace of mind, and giving them the space to focus on healing and recovery.

Every dollar counts, and no amount is too small. Whether you can contribute financially or simply help by spreading the word about this campaign, your actions will have a direct impact on Andrew’s family’s lives.

Let's come together as a community and show Rambo, Rogo and their families the incredible strength of our compassion. Click the "Donate" button to make your contribution and share this campaign with your network.

From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for your kindness, generosity, and unwavering support. Together, we can make a life-saving difference.

With gratitude,
Team Rambo
