John Lennon needs our help.
*** updates below Portuges em baxio **
*** original goal of £2000 was reached in under 20 hours. A true testament to the incredible person that John Lennon is. THANK YOU!
If you are lucky enough to have met John Lennon or you know him well, he's probably helped you in some way in the past. Rescued your run away kite, pushed your car out of the sand when you got stuck, or just gone out his way to give you a hand with something. That's the way he is. He's a big hearted, kind person who does what he can for others. Now it's our turn to help him.
John was supposed to be flying to Israel on Saturday to be with his pregnant fiancé, ready for the birth of their baby, which is due any moment.
Last week John Lennon had a VERY serious motorbike accident in Taiba.
He suffered massive trauma to the head and broke various other bones in his body. On Saturday he had brain surgery to remove a blood clot, now he is currently in IJF Hospital in Fortaleza in a coma, on a life support machine.
Our friend John is in a coma, on life support.
The doctors have done all they can for him, the coma was induced to help reduce swelling of the brain and aid recovery.
John needs our help. His mum is getting the bus everyday from the city to be by his side, creams and dressings need to be paid for, these things are already expensive for a Brazilian family. His recovery will be a long slow process, there will be medical bills to pay and a new baby to support. £2000 is a start but long term he's going to need a lot more.
It's our turn to return all those favours and help John Lennon.
*** our original goal of reaching £2000 was amazing reached in under 20 hours, now we're raising £4000 towards his care.
We'll keep updating the page as and when we hear news from his family.
**** update Mon 11/09 pm Thank you for all the amazing donations so far!
**update 17/09 john is still on life supprt but there has been a small decrease in the swelling to his brain
His mother is so thankful for the support coming in from around the world. Her words "Johns condition was worsening due to the need of blood transfusions. Thankfully so many of his friends have been turning up at IJF to donate after the family announced they needed blood. They were screened and on the spot have donated more than enough blood to help his current state" She is totally amazed by the support from his friends. He is still in a very bad way but we're all praying.
John's fiance, Bar, his mother Nizinha, and the whole family are so grateful for all the help they are receiving. The good energy, love and gestures of kindness are helping them feel so much stronger. They send their love and thanks to EVERYONE!
O John Lennon precisa da nossa ajuda.
Se você teve a sorte de conhecer o John Lennon ou era amigo dele, provavelmente ele já te ajudou de alguma forma alguma vez. Te resgatou de um kite perdido, te deu uma força na praia ou parou de fazer o que ele estava fazendo pra te ajudar de alguma forma. Ele é assim. O John tem um coração imenso e é querido por todos que o conheceram. Agora as coisas mudaram e é nossa vez de o ajudar.
John estava viajando para Israel no sábado para ficar com sua noiva, que está esperando o nascimento do primeiro filho deles a qualquer momento, mas semana passada ele sofreu um acidente de moto muito grave na Taíba.
Ele agora está com traumatismo craniano e quebrou vários outros ossos de seu corpo. A cirurgia no cérebro foi realizada sábado, no Hospital IJF, em Fortaleza. Agora ele se encontra em coma induzido e respira com a ajuda de aparelhos.
Os médicos já fizeram tudo que podiam por ele, o coma foi induzido pra ajudar a desinchar o cérebro e ajudar na recuperação.
O John precisa da sua ajuda. A recuperação vai ser um longo processo, há contas a serem pagas pelos gastos médicos e o novo filho que está por nascer.
É a sua vez de retribuir os favores que o John Lennon deve ter feito por você um dia.
