Jim's Medical Expenses

Please Help.    On Saturday December 9th,  Jim Anderson was taken to the hostpital with a suspected stroke.  He was transported off the small island of Koh Tao  to the nearest  major hospital.  For Jim, his 4 year old son and the sons mother, this tragedy has multiple overwhelming consequences.  Jim has no insurance.  The speed boat to Samui is extremely costly.  There is no money for medical costs.  There is no money for the immediate  needs  of his son and his mother.  There is no one to keep his BBQ business going at the moment  so there is no income coming in for him. 

 There is really no way to fully  describe the emotional and economic chaos of this situation.  At the time of this outreach to you,  Jim’s  condition is slowly progressing, but their is a long road ahead with more visits to the hospital in the future.  Jim has lived on Koh Tao for many years, so friends here on  Koh Tao are reaching out to Jim’s friends and anyone else who is willing to lend a helping hand during this time of crisis. 

   Our goal is $2,000  (65,400 THB)  Whatever you can donate will be forever appreciated.
