My dear brother joel had always been a hard working man and father. He built up his own business and bought his own home. disaster. His back began to really hurt. He was told by a hospital that his spine was weakening and vertebrae crumbling. He kept trying to work but in the end the pain was too much. He went into hospital for a spinal operation. This did not work and something went wrong and made the pain worse. That was 8 years ago and since then he has endured 3 more spinal ops and now lives in pain that the doctors say is akin to having 2 freshly broken legs at all times. Joel lost his job and his home. He is unable to work. He is a kind and loving brother, father and son. He helps anyone where he can. I'm getting married in October and joel was the man to give me away after my own father abandoned family. Joels condition has become worse recently meaning driving is impossible. I need a helicopter to get him from East Sussex to Bristol. It's approximately £8000 for joel and his family. Please please help.
