Hat for Ollie


As you are aware our mate Ollie was involved in a life changing accident on 11/08/18.
He was in Bali on a surf trip when he was tragically run over by a cement truck.  Ollie was by himself when the accident occurred which meant he had to take care of himself following the incident; this involved him having to pick himself and his shattered leg up from the side of the road, tourniquet his wound to control the bleeding and get a 35 min taxi to the hospital.

Ollie received surgery in Bali on the 12th; with the expectation he would recover and fly home in the preceding days. However this was not the case things took a turn for the worse and a rapid deterioration of his health followed.  This was significantly attributed to the incompetence and greed of the Bali medical system.  To get himself back to Australian soil Ollie has incurred costs over 100k AUD.

As a result of the injuries sustained and the actions of the Bali medical system, Ollie has had to have his leg amputated below the knee.  He has undergone multiple surgeries since arriving in Perth to save his knee and things are looking good.

Ollie is currently receiving treatment in Royal Perth Hospital and is supported by his parents who joined him in Bali in order to assist in bringing him back to Australia.

Ollie is in high spirits and thankfully sees this as a challenge rather than something that might hold him back.

Myself and a group of Ollie's friends and colleagues created this Go Fund Me campaign to help Ollie and his family recoup some of the money spent to bring him back to Australia and subsequently save his life. 

If you could dig deep to donate to help the Frotha out, not matter how big or small, it would be greatly appreciated.

Please feel free to share this campaign.  

Thanks guys.
