Fly Frank Home for Urgent Treatment

We are humbly asking for your help to bring our brother and Uncle Frank back home from South Africa to Australia urgently. He has unexpectedly had a severe relapse of his medical condition whilst overseas, his first in 10 years :-( His doctor has advised that he needs to come back home for treatment and hospitalisation as a matter of urgency. However, because Frank is on heavy medication, and is currently in deep psychosis, he has to be sedated for the flight back. His brother Ronald is the only family member who knows how to manage Frank and the only one who has the physical capacity to travel back with him on Wednesday the 4th of July. Unfortunately the family has been unable to raise the $2,300 for Ronald to accompany him back home on the same flight (QF0064); so we're praying that there are hearts out there generous enough to donate so that we can purchase a ticket with Qantas points + donations :-)  So far, we have 4,463 points but we are hoping to reach 269 000 points by Monday the 2nd of July in order to be able to book the flight. We have attached a letter from the treating doctor confirming Frank's situation.

With deepest thanks,
Frank's family
