Tim Mahon's Bypass to Life

Stephen Elliott Esq  Swisttal, NW, Germany
While covering IDEX in Abu Dhabi this week, Tim Mahon, a well-respected and much-loved freelance journalist suffered a heart attack and needs a double / tripple by-pass surgery.

He cannot travel home for this.

The National Health Service in the UK refuses to cover him in the U.A.E. 

We need to raise the money fast to cover this. 

Mönch Verlag, the defence publisher, has already paid for the first phase of his expenses, but the rest is rather dear.

As a freelance journalist, Tim is not covered by any corporate travel insurance.  Britain has all but abandoned him, one of its own.

U.A.E. law states that a private person, such as Tim, cannot leave the country until all debts are paid in full.

We are appealing to the defence industry, colleagues, friends in the media and more to kindly help stump up for donations to pay off the debt so Tim can be treated without worry and be allowed to travel home.

If you are in the defence industry, then please help by giving generously

...chances are that Tim has been very helpful to your company over the years and this would be the best way to show appreciation.

Tim has his operation on Sunday or Monday at the Alhalia Mussaf Hospital in Abu Dhabi, U.A.E.

Please,  will you help Tim?!

Thank you!

Hi Everyone, Thank you so much again for your support.
We will be closing this account on 12 April as associated costs are basically met, now that his care will continue in the UK.
You are all brilliant and there is much stored up for you in the karma piggybank!!

Hi Everyone,
Just to let you know that Tim is back in Blighty and we are awaiting word re: surgery.

Your donations have helped to "spring" from the UAE, bring him home and help fund his post-op care...ah, and to set up travel insurance for him ;o)

Thank you all for your support, prayers and love of this great friend, contributing editor, intellectual, bon vivant, etc. life would certainly be dull and un-remarkable without him.

We are still recieving donations as we are unsure aout the total of the medical costs associated with his condition. Any surplus will be given to Tim for his post-op care not covered by the NHS.

Hurrah!

THANK YOU EVERYONE!!
i saw Tim a few hours ago, before i left Abu Dhabi.
Hopefully, the Ahalia Musaffa Hospital can stablise and strengthen him somhe can come home for this procedure - with friends like you nearby, instead of languishing in Abu Dhabi alone.

Your thoughts, prayers and donations are overwhelming and i know -for a fact - Tim is completely surprised by this immense outpouring of good wishes and donations.

Please spread the word to mutual friends and colleagues. Beyond the amazing individual donations, we are hoping companies will join CMS in donating generously to one one their stalwart supporters.

Best Wishes from Istanbul's "interesting" transfer lounge.

Stay Safe!
