Help to get Richard home!

We need to get Richard home!

Myself and Richard have travelled to Magaluf, Majorca for a holiday to celebrate Richards 26th Birthday.
Everything was going well, we were having the best times of our lives until it has became the worst nightmare ever!
Richard has jumped into a swimming pool and broken a bone in his back neck. Richard was rushed imidietly into surgery and put in critical care without travel insurance and without European Health Insurance Card. Richard is now breathing through a tube as his lungs are very weak and can not breathe on his own, He is able to move his head and his shoulders but can not move or feel from his chest down to his feet. The hospital (Son Espases, Majorca) that we are in now does not have the machines and can not give him the treatment he needs to help him. We now need to get Richard transported in a air ambulance into a hospital in UK where they will be able to help him with his breathing and the movement of his body. The whole transportation costs €20,0000, doctors in Son Espases hospital in Palma, Majorca have given permission for Richard to go on the 26th of July 2018 back home to get the medical assistance that he needs however we do not have the sufficient funds to get Richard into a hospital in UK in a air ambulance.
As you would assume this is not cheap but we need your help to get Richard where he needs to be to receive the medical support that he needs.
Can everyone spread the word and donate what ever you can, anything will be appreciated and will help!

Firstly I would like to apologise that I haven't updated you all on Richard's condition, this was because I did not know much myself as Richard's family have not been in contact with me.

Richard has been transported to UK by an air ambulance on Sunday and is currently in critical care in Stoke-on-Trent hospital. Richard's breathing is improving each day and he his now breathing through tracheostomy which is temporary. Richard is fully awake but is still unable to move his body from his chest down to his feet, he can feel his arms & hands but can not move them much.
I have shown Richard all the kind comments people have made and all the support & prayes you all lovely people have sent,he couldn't believe all the positive comments and all the donations everyone has made for him, Richard's reaction was overwhelming he couldn't stop smiling! ❤️

Richard's full recovery will take some time but I believe without a doubt that he will get through this! ❤️ People that know Richard in person know that he's a strong fighter that has never gave up on anything and never will give up, he'll keep fighting until he's fully recovered! ❤️❤️

Without all the support everyone has provided, Richard would not be where he is now ❤️
Myself and Richard, we're very grateful and thankful to everyone who's been going through this difficult time with us and has supported us all the way, You are all kind, caring & amazing people!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Once again, your support is much appreciated ❤️❤️

Hello Everyone

Richards family have raised the £20k that we will need for the transportation by borrowing from other family members and selling their valuable items. The donations you all have kindly made will go towards Richards medical treatment in Son Espases hospital, I am now trying to stop/cancel the GoFundMe account as Richards family does not wish for any more donations to be made. I have provided all the proof GoFundMe has requested to verify my identity to withdraw the donations and just waiting for them to review the documents i have provided. Before people say that this is scam or that I will keep the donations for myself please keep looking out for receipts/proofs that i will upload onto my facebook account which is Simona Malarova. I will upload receipts or proofs that the donations have gone towards Richard’s medical treatment in Son Espases as soon as I have them. Me, my family, Richards family and Richards friends are very grateful for all the donations people have made and would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has supported us its very much appreciated!

Richard currently in induced coma and can not get transported to UK as his medical condition has gone worse and is not stable enough to travel in a air ambulance now. Doctors in Son Espases have said that we will have to wait until Richard’s medical condition improves which can unfortunately take days, weeks or even months. I will keep everyone updated on Richards condition on my facebook account.

I want everyone to know that Liverpool Echo or other media will say that I have spoken to them which I have not and without my constent they have publicitised images of me and Richard and said stuff about Richard that are not true. I will be looking into this soon as all I can concentrate on now is Richard.

If anyone has any questions please contact me on my facebook account which is Simona Malarova and I will try to respond to everyone as soon as I can. Once again thanks to everyone who has supported us.

Hello Everyone,

Firstly I would like to thank the people who have shown sympathy and support for me and Richard. After reading the negative comments I would like to make it clear to everyone that Richard lives and works in UK therefore contributes to our NHS. Secondly, I know we have made the biggest mistake in our lives by not buying the travel insurance but there is nothing we can do about it now amd I’m sure some your young children would not think about it either. With or without travel insurance Richard needs to get to UK to receive the medical care he needs by our NHS.
People who are saying that this is scam, please contact the Son Espases hospital in Palma or contact our hotel where the accident happened the hotel is called BH Mallorca.
People who have commented on the media saying stuff like ‘I hope he dies’ ‘she will get the money on Sheil Rd’ and many more nasty comments have really upset me. I dont need this right now from anyone. I have lived and grew up in Liverpool since I was 7. The media have said that Richard lives in Liverpool but he does not. Richard lives in Crewe and has lived there with his family and worked there for over 7 years. The reason he will not get transported to Slovakia to get the medical attention that he needs is because all our families live in Liverpool and Crewe to give him as much support as he will need.
The GoFundMe page will be live until tomorrow. Our families have sold many things such as their vehicles,Richards vehicle, furniture and many many more stuff. The transportation itself costs £20k and as soon as I receive the receipt I will post it on here and on my facebook account. I have registered Richard for the EHIC the day after the accident but I’m unsure if it will cover the cost of the medical treatmemet he is currently receiving in Son Espases hospital.

If you dont want to donate or support then thats fine I respect your opinions but please dont comment horrible stuff on here I’m trying my best to stay strong and positive through all this and your nasty comments are making my situation worse.

Hope this has answered all your questions

Thank you
Simona Malarova

Hi everyone,
Firstly I would like to say a BIG thank you to everyone who has donated, supported and shared this, Richard’s condition has got worse this morning
His left lung has exploded as there was big pressure going into his lungs. Richard has now got another tube by his ribs connected to his left lung which is helping him breathe better. He is very weak from the sedatives and is currently asleep.
I am trying my best to stay strong and positive through this.
Many people have shown they’re kind thoughts for Richard and this is much appreciated!
Thank you all
