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

    Story

    A 17year old lad called Owen is currently in Addenbrooke's hospital. He is in a coma on a life support machine.

    It is going to cost his devoted family £55 a night to be able to stay in accommodation located at Addenbrooke's hospital.

    Unfortunately on Tuesday 12th of December 2017 the roads were icy and Owen was involved in a car accident. He was a passenger in a vehicle on his way to work.

    He was air lifted to Addenbrooke's hospital.
    He is now in a life threatening condition in a coma on a life support machine. He has a bleed on his brain.

    I would like to reach out to people to try and help support this family during this difficult time.
    Money should not stand in-between this family spending every moment with their son/brother and friend.

    I understand this is a difficult time of year for many and money can be short, every penny will count and go such a long way and it will make a difference!

    If you can not afford to donate, you can still help support this cause by taking a minute of your time to share this plea with your friends and family.

    All support for this family will be greatly appreciated.

    If more funds are raised it will support the family with any financial difficulties incurred at this difficult time.

      Owen has started to make some small progress with his levels stabilizing. At this stage nobody knows how long his road to recovery will take or what life changing injury's he may have, but we hope that this Just Giving page will not only help his family stay with Owen in hospital for every moment they can but also to help support Owen on his road to recovery. Thank you to everyone for your continued support.
