Carters Medical Fees

33807754_1539766393828786_r.jpegHi Everyone, 

I have never done anything like this before, until now.... 

We have come on holiday to visit family in Cyprus & unfortunately our baby Carter has been admitted into hospital after developing a concerning rash which was spreading rapidly, high fever & projectile vomiting. After having meningitis as a child myself, I didn’t want to take any chances. 

We were recommended a medical centre not far from where we were staying. As soon as we arrived, the medical staff were taking his temperature, bloods etc. They were so thorough & until after admission we didn’t realise that our PREMIUM travel insurance wouldn’t cover this medical clinic as it was private. The policy, did however say, that they would make allowances for mitigating circumstances. After talking to management & underwriters, they said that because he wasn’t in a critical state, the fee would be our own issue and we should try and transfer to a public facility, which can’t be done as Carters condition is highly contagious and we are in quarantine. 

Carter has been diagnosed with hand foot and mouth disease & the rash has covered 50% of his body, and is on an IV drip, a nebuliser & antibiotics for acute bronchitis... he’s had chest X-rays, bloods, an overnight stay as well as all the medical treatment he’s received. 

We have been told that the fees have to be paid on departure, and they ideally want to keep carter in for another night which will be in excess of €200, something that we cannot afford right now. 

So we are asking for help from friends and family to help us during this worrying time. 

Any help we can get would be greatly appreciated ❤️
