My dad’s life saving medical help

On November 19th 2017, in a matter of seconds my whole world was turned on it’s head. I had spoken to my dad on the phone (my parents live in Jeddah , Saudi Arabia), and he had said to me that he would try and help me out with some expenses. Little did I know that in a matter of a few hours, he would suffer from a brain stroke that would send him into a coma. 

He was rushed to the hospital, where he received a lifesaving decompression surgery and was shifted into the icu. All this was covered by his insurance. 

Fastforward to today - doctors have said that they have done all they could have done and even though he is no conscious they will need to release him from the hospital as the insurance is running out in 3 days. They said that because he needs constant attention , i.e. feeding through a tube, cleaning , physiotherapy and clearing his check via a suction pipe, he should be returned to his home country which is Pakistan, Lahore. There he should be put in medical care and would require a nurse 24 hours. 

To take my dad from Jeddah to Lahore we require an air ambulance and from there on hospitalisation with constant nursing care till he returns to consciousness (if he returns to consciousness). This life saving treatment will cost us atleast £30,000 or more. The air ambulance itself costs c.£10,000 which includes the expenses of having a doctor accompany him on the plane. This £30,000+  is money we don’t have.

Our options are to request people for help, or watch my father slowly and painfully starve to death in a foreign country because we didn’t have money. This is the hardest thing I have ever had to do, to ask for help. So please, I am appealing to your compassion and empathy to help me and mum. I am the only child and don’t have enough to support his medical bills, I can only support a part of their day to day expenses , if I sell off everything I have- which I am happy to do.

My father is a good man. He loves me and we still have hope as the doctors tell us that he will come back to us. He has done his best in life to support me and my mum even with all the problems we faced and now I feel so helpless that I cannot do anything for him when he needs help. Please help us. I will be forever indebted to you.

If we can exceed target that would ensure that my dad would receive the medical attention he needs. Please please help out if you can. I will be forever indebted to you.
