Get our Natasha back

£33,135 of £35,000 goal

Raised by 991 people in 23 days
Please help and support us in raising money for my beautiful, brave sister Natasha.

Natasha is 17 years old and recently she was on holiday with her friends in Zante celebrating the end of their A Levels. Unfortunately, on 6th july, Natasha was involved in a life changing accident after she was thrown from a quad bike.

The first few days after the accident were heartbreaking, we were told if she was any older she would have not survived.

She sustained multiple injuries and was rushed to hospital in Zante where she had surgery on her brain to try and stop bleeding and to correct her fractured skull. In addition to this Natasha also had to have a splenectomy due to abdominal injuries. After the surgery she was flown via air ambulance to a hospital in mainland Greece where she has since stayed in intensive care.

She has been heavily sedated and ventilated since the accident, the front and left side of her brain have sustained damage and although progress has been made the extent/severity of this damage and the long term effect this may have is currently unknown.

Natasha’s family and friends desperately want her home as she has been in hospital in Greece for 3 weeks now. To fly her home the cost of the air ambulance is £30,000 which has to be paid upfront.

Any donations made will be put towards paying for this cost and for any future equipment, physiotherapy, rehabilitation, a wig, travel and accommodation costs she will likely need in order to give her the best chance of a full recovery.

Please support Natasha and help bring her back to us. We want to see her beautiful smile back on her face. #getNatashaback .31676994_1532714269609587_r.jpeg

On behalf of Natasha and my family we would like to thank everybody for the immense support and love. We are astounded as to how much has been donated so far.
The amount raised so far has gone towards getting Natasha home. She had a safe journey and is now getting settled in a hospital in Preston. Natasha is doing well, considering her injuries, but she has months of recovery ahead of her.

Steven, Natasha's uncle, will be the beneficiary and hold the funds we withdraw. The money will then be passed on to Natasha's mum. It will be then used to pay for any physiotherapy and rehabilitation Natasha will need during her recovery process as well as a wig and any equipment she may need when she comes home.
Again we want to thank everybody who has donated and helped to get Natasha home.

Hi everyone, due to the amazing and overwhelming generosity of everyone who has donated on this site, and our family sourcing monies through loans and credit cards, we are now in a position to arrange for Natasha to fly home once the doctors give her the okay to fly.
We want to continue fundraising for my incredibly brave sister Natasha to help re-pay our families debt and continue raise funds as per my original post -- future equipment, physiotherapy, rehabilitation, a wig and travel and accommodation costs.
Thank you all so much for your continued support,
Amy xx
