In early March, Tim was competing in a Hard Enduro race in Queensland. During this race he suffered a life threatening medical episode, now believed to be severe Heat Stroke. He was air-lifted to Gold Coast University Hospital where he remains in a stable but critical condition. His family are by his side in the Intensive Care Unit and we all hope he will soon be able to be woken from his induced coma.
On behalf of Ina, and Tim's family, we are reaching out for help to ease some of the financial stress on the family. There are many added difficulties being away from home while they support Tim now and through his recovery.
The health care provided to Tim is free, unlimited and comprehensive. Tim's family have been amazed by the quality of care provided by highly trained and skilled health care professionals. Unfortunately other costs remain and bills continue to come in. Being away from home is expensive. Further to this, Tim was mostly self employed so there are limited avenues for income through his recovery.
The medical team have warned that Tim's recovery is likely to be long. So in planning for this we are asking for small contributions, if you can spare it, to allow Tim's family to stay by his side. We have set the goal high as we feel it is important to plan for a variety of costs both in the short term, while they are in Queensland, and in the longer term on their eventual return to Victoria. We are not sure when Ina will be able to return to work and we must assume it will be a while before Tim is able to work.
Funds raised will go towards;
- Accomodation bills while the family are in Queensland
- Fuel and car costs
- Ongoing bills at home- including mortgage, water, electricity etc.
- Ongoing medical/ rehabilitation costs-not yet known
Tim's family are so grateful for all the support, calls and offers of assistance since Tim has been in the Intensive Care Unit. It has made a huge difference to them knowing you all care so much for Tim and are all cheering him on. It has been an incredibly difficult time for Ina and the family and in supporting them, you have all been supporting Tim.
