Story

This is Paul Copper,

He's just turned 50.

Paul has been a Firefighter and Watch Manager for over 25 years. Many of us have had the pleasure of working alongside him. He is very much loved and by his family, friends and the countless firefighters he has worked with over the years, both in Essex and Hertfordshire.

Last week Paul contracted sepsis, a rare but potentially deadly infection, which has quickly attacked his organs including his brain.

He is currently in a medically induced coma whilst doctors try to stop the bleeding on his brain.

The prognosis for Paul is not good, but he will fight.

This Just Giving page has been set up to help, in some small way, with the things Paul will need during his recovery and for the rest of his life. Donations, no matter how small all add up, so please, lets give him the best chance we can, you know he would for you.

All donations will go to Paul's family to use as they see fit.

    Hi everyone, on behalf of Paul I'm continually amazed at the support and generosity of all of Paul's true friends. No one can deny the impact he has made on all those he has met, and the majority of those he has worked with during his fire service career count Paul as a friend and not just a work colleague. The proof of his friend's love is right here in these amazing donations. Let's keep it going!

    Paul has made a little progress in the last few days! but is still gravely ill and a very long way from any sort of recovery. There is hope but we have been told there is still significant risk of further complications and he will likely need more surgery. I've read all of your comments and I know that his family are overwhelmed by the love, messages of hope and amazing donations this page has received. Keep spreading the message to all about Paul and let's raise as much as we can. He's going to need a lot of expensive help. Simon x

I worked alongside Paul at Loughton fire station when he transfered from Hertfordshire. He became a firm friend and valued collegue who I also had the pleasure of sharing a flat with.
