    Weʼve raised £7,496 to Help and support Ed Isaac to return home to his family

    St Neots, United Kingdom
    Funded on Friday, 18th August 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    As many of you are aware our good friend Ed Isaac collapsed on his way to work in London on November 17th 2016 and suffered a massive brain haemorrhage. He underwent life saving surgery and is currently undergoing intensive rehabilitation at a local neurological centre. He continues to make amazing progress and is hoping to return home to his wife Emma and their 3 children soon. Ed is currently reliant on a wheelchair and has very limited movement down the left hand side of his body.

    When this happened lots of people offered their help and support but there was little anyone could do at the time. To enable Ed to come home we now need to ask for that help and any support would be gratefully received.
    Their home needs to undergo some necessary adaptations, most importantly a downstairs wet room and bedroom. Also, once Ed is home he will require ongoing intensive therapy to ensure he continues to make progress.
    We are asking for any donations to enable these adapations to take place as soon as possible and also towards his ongoing therapy once he is home, allowing the Isaacs to become a family once again.
    Ed has already come such a long way, but his recovery is a continual journey and any support will be of great help.
    Thank you
    Ang & Catherine

      Hi everyone, we wanted to let you know that Ed's surgery didn't go ahead today. He is one of those who has been affected by the NHS computer hacking incident. We are hoping for a new date soon. Thank you all for your good wishes and continued support. Xx

      On Saturday Ed reaches another milestone in his treatment when he returns to the Royal London Hospital for surgery to fit a plate into the place where his skull was removed for emergency brain surgery. Following this surgery the plan is get Ed home as soon as he is well enough, hopefully the beginning of June, so we really need to keep momentum going to allow Emma and the relevant services to prepare. If you can, please donate.
