Tony Tennant's Medivac & Medical

We are assisting with the recovery of former Royal Marine Commando Tony  (Lou) Tennant's MEDIVAC from Bosnia to the UK.  Tony is a veteran Royal Marine, former Police Officer and currently an underwater forensic diver. 

On 25th August whilst on holiday with  his wife and children Tony sustained serious injuries abroad.  Axa Insurance have declined to pay out, so all medical bills and transfer to UK to be paid privately. Please help.

He was rushed to local hospital and has a ruptured bladder and broken pelvis, Tony has been in Intensive care  since his accident.  He is in  hospital in Mostar, where treatment there has been afforded by Staff, Doctors and Surgeons beyond our expectations in order to facilitate his transfer to UK. The hospital staff have maintained stability and performed a complicated procedure so he is safe enough for transportation and he has recieved the help that was available thankfully, however, Tony's needs are beyond what is available locally for him, his wife and children. As you can imagine they are very upset and are struggling in this difficult time and wish their privacy to be honoured whilst in progress. 

We would like to get Tony a Medivac back to the UK  and assist his family as well as cover the high medical bills which will inevitably come their way.

We have contacted some military organisations hoping for some help or support but would appreciate whatever anyone can give, no matter how small, as every little helps.
We hope his friends , ex colleagues and anyone wishing to help a veteran in need can help out. Please give whatever you can, no matter how small.  We need the medivac funds ASAP, we do not know the cost of medical care as yet, however from hearing previous experience's of these situations they are always very high. 

The Royal Marines Family is doing all it can to recover Tony back to the UK.

Tank you all.
