William estaba disfrutando de vacaciones familiares en compañía de su esposa Marta Camporro y sus dos hijos pequeños. El 10 de abril fue a dar un paseo en bicicleta cuando, trágicamente, un coche le atropelló causándole lesiones muy graves. En estos momentos se encuentra en la Unidad de Cuidados Intensivos del hospital de Cádiz con lesiones en el cerebro, bajo sedación y con respiración asistida. Asimismo, tiene varias costillas rotas y algunas vértebras dañadas. Los médicos pronostican la posibilidad de que se recupere.
En un intento desesperado por ayudarles a afrontar tan desesperada situación, un grupo de amigos hemos empezado una campaña para recaudar fondos que les permita instalarse en Cádiz todo el tiempo que necesiten y que les ayude a adaptarse a los drásticos cambios que están afrontando.
Por favor, ayúdennos a reunir dinero para William y su familia haciendo una donación hoy.
William was enjoying a family holiday with his wife Marta Camporro and their two young children. On Monday 10 April he went for a bike ride. Tragically, he was hit by a car causing life threatening injuries.
He is in an intensive care unit in a hospital in Cádiz, Spain. He has a serious head injury and is under sedation with assisted breathing. He also has broken ribs and damaged vertebrae. The doctors have said there is a chance that he will recover and for now his condition is being monitored very closely.
The holiday is over but Marta and their children need to stay close to him, nobody knows for how long. In a desperate attempt to help them in this situation we are raising funds to allow them to get temporarily settled in Cádiz and to support the family adjust to the drastic change they are experiencing in their lives.
He remains stable and we are all hoping that William, a loving father, keen cyclist and caring friend can continue this slow path to a full recovery.
Please help us raise money to support William and his family by making a donation today.

We have no words to describe how overwhelmed we are with the support given to us in this very difficult time. It is incredible to see how much you love William but also our family. We have been moved to tears with your comments and generous donations. Currently William is still in intensive care but making as good progress as could be expected. The doctors are very positive about the progress he has made so far but his recovery will be a long process. We want to reiterate how grateful we are for your help and support. Marta and Louise
