Get Terry home

We are very sorry to share the devastating news that Terry Gale (59) recently suffered a heart attack, bleed's on the brain and a severe stroke whilst on holiday with the family in Tenerife. He has had heart  and major brain surgery, is currently in a coma and an extremely critical condition here in a Santa Cruz hospital. We as a family have understandably remained in Tenerife to be with him. 

Terry’s health care costs will be covered by his EHIC card (which we have so much gratitude for). However, The Co-Operative Bank and their underwriter Axa Insurance have refused to pay any of the costs  needed for the family due to a technicality. Terry urgently needs to be brought home to the UK and the cost of that journey alone is up to £40,000. The  costs for the family are heavily increasing by the day as we are by his side, unable to work and receive any kind of pay. 

We are hoping that together we can raise the funds to help get Terry home and support him for what is a long journey ahead. 

Please can you help? All contributions would be so gratefully received and treasured with all our hearts. Thank you. Xx
