Please Help Michael Gall

Please help us to help Michael Gall. Michael is 29 years of age and throughout his life has been an honest, hardworking, helpful and loving person.  Michael is a tree surgeon and has always been active, fit and healthy. He loves his job and loves life. He has traveled the world as a tree surgeon and enjoyed active sports and particularly loves his job as a tree surgeon and tree climber.  On Friday 12th October 2018 whilst working in Neuwied in Germany, Michael fell over 10 meters from a tree and fractured his spine. He was taken to hospital in Neuwied and underwent surgery. This photograph was taken by his girlfriend Femke the day after his surgery and after all he has been through he's trying to smile and be positive. At this moment in time he has no feelings in his legs and the consultant has recommended that Michael be transferred to Stoke Mandeville specialist spinal unit in the UK as soon as possible - hopefully week commencing Monday 22nd October 2018.                                                               Unfortunately, Michael has no insurance and the company he worked for at this time seem unable to help so we have to find the money to pay for emergency transport, either by air or by land to get Michael the specialist help he so desperately needs to give him the best chance to regain mobility and give him the chance of as normal a future as possible.                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Michael is a very much loved son from a large extended family but we  do not have the thousands of pounds needed to fund his repatriation and the possible rehabilitation, living expenses and legal fees he will need to pay going forward. His step father, Rikki Gall and his natural father Pat May, along with the rest of his family are hoping that you can help us to generate funds and  support Michael in any way you can. If alternative funding for Michael arises or he makes a quicker than expected recovery, then any excess funds generated by this appeal but not needed will be donated to a spinal injuries charity of his choosing. Please help us to help Michael, even if you can only donate £1.00 It will mean so much and go so far towards helping him put his life back together. We need to get him back to the UK urgently so please tell your friends and help Michael.
