Hi all, I am a close friend of Ronzo and Donna.
Our dear friend Ron Payne, local owner of Brunch Break Café in Geraldton, is critically ill and fighting the fight of his life, in FIONa Stanley Hospital.
Ron was found collapsed at home by Donna three weeks ago.
He was rushed to Geraldton hospital, but had to be flown by RFDS to Perth, as his organs started shutting down.
Ron has contracted influenza A, double pneumonia, he also has a staph infection which has caused kidney failure, so he is on dialysis. He has also suffered a heart attack at some point, and it has damaged part of his heart.
He came off the ventilator for two days, but it was too much for his body. So he is back on a tracheotomy to assist breathing.
Donna has been by his bed every day since.
Therefore there is no income coming in and the recovery will be months. He is still in ICU very critically ill.
Any amount of donation will be greatly appreciated,
Thank you everyone. Will keep you updated.
