Rich's medical emergency fundraiser

On Thursday 29th August, Rich was on his way to enjoy a lads holiday in Marbella. Unfortunately the holiday soon took a turn for the worse, Rich was taken poorly the following day after collapsing in the bathroom and was rushed to A&E. After scans revealed he had a major bleed on his liver, he underwent emergency surgery to try and stop the bleeding. Complications have now occurred and he is in a critical condition in an intensive care unit on a ventilator awaiting further surgery in Marbella. He has received several blood transfusions, and he is currently heavily sedated with on open chest, which is packed with compression bandages to help prevent further internal bleeding. This was a complete shock to the family, we have now discovered it was a benign Tumor on his liver which had erupted. Rich is a genuine down to earth guy who is well loved by his children, family and friends. He’s a keen gym goer and is well loved by his emporium family. As his younger sister, it’s heartbreaking for me to see my older brother in such a critical state. Rich unfortunately forgot to take out any holiday insurance and his European health card has expired. He also faces a long an intense recovery which will be life changing for him. Therefore we are asking for any donations possible to help with the costly foreign medical bills that currently increasing daily. Please help where you can, we are extremely great full for any donations big or small. Please copy and share this post ❤
