Help my brother stay alive!

My brother Johnny was found unconscious whilst living in Thailand. He's been on life support and was in a coma, most of my family have flown over to be with him. He is making such a fast recovery and is fighting so hard!! Literally moments before the doctors were going to start withdrawing life support he took several breaths on his own! Since then, he has gained back 40% of his breathing ability, he has moved his arms and legs and is trying to communicate with us! It's so incredible! The doctors said he had no brain activity and that there was basically no hope, and only a few days later he has improved so much!! We are staying strong and positive as a family and hoping for a full recovery. Unfortunately the hospital bills are $3000 a day, it's not nice to have to worry about finances in a situation like this but we just don't have that kind of money! Our next step is to have him flown to Australia where we have private health insurance and the entire family can be there to help him recover. So I am begging everyone to please help us in an extreme time of need, if we can raise the money to fly him over here it means not only us as a family can be there for him, but he will be well taken care of by qualified, English speaking specialists. He is such a loving and generous man and I know if the situation was turned he wouldn't walk away until he knew he did everything he possibly could. So please, I ask you all to send out your thoughts and prayers to the universe. Anything you can afford to part with will be a huge generosity and deeply appreciated!
