Help Adrian - Urgent need

Turtle (aka Adrian Kirby) needs our help.  In 1993, on the day after Christmas, Adrian was paralyzed  from the neck down by a surfing accident. Despite this he has gone on to build a good life and a well known business in Antigua, all from a wheelchair.  He is a solid inspiration to his friends and anyone who knows him. 

About a week ago on Friday August 3rd 2018 he suffered an acute cardiac incident , basically a heart attack. He was medevaced from Antigua to Barbados for further treatment.  He has since been stabilized and has returned to Antigua however he now requires further treatment and evaluation. His paralysis makes this new medical condition and treatment more complex and unfortunately much more expensive.

The specialized examination and care he needs cannot be provided in Antigua and will require him to be taken to the US or the UK. This is an extremely costly undertaking made even more so by his particular needs. If you know him you can attest to the remarkable way he is always eager to help others, he now needs help to get this medical attention as soon as possible. 

Thanks for your timely donation and please share this with anyone who may know Turtle or want to help.
