Fellow pilot needs help

#1

Guys, I don't know if this is permissible here, if not, please delete or move to more appropriate thread.

My good friend, fellow pilot and resident of Pemba, Mozambique needs our help. Jamie Wilson is a Professional Hunter, owner and pilot of a Piper Chieftan, and has contracted a terrible form of cancer.

He has been on one trip to India to have laser surgery, but the cancer has spread.

Please have a look at the following and, of possible, donate via one of the following methods:

https://www.generosity.com/projects/help-jamie-to-get-a-liver-transplant/contributions/new/#/contribute

https://www.doneeractie.nl/help-jamie-aan-een-nieuwe-lever/-545

A new liver means new life for Jamie

Jamie (49) has a hereditary disease called Hemochromatosis. Because of the iron overload it causes, cancer has developed on his liver. The cancer is progressing rapidly and his condition is worsening. A liver transplant is for him the only option to survive; without it his life expectancy is only 6 months.

There is a doctor in India who specializes in ‘living donor’ liver transplants (http://www.livertransplantindia.com). He has performed more than 3,000 transplants successfully. Jamie will be heading there soon, obviously.

He has found a family member, willing to donate part of his liver.

This part will be implanted in Jamie (his own liver will be removed entirely).

Both operations are costly: in total we will have to come up with about € 60.000,- Through donations of friends, family and acquaintances we hope to raise this amount.

We grant Jamie, Eveline and his kids a much longer life together!

If you also want to help, please donate. Every contribution is welcome.

I don't mind to donate, but it will have to be next month, since I'm waiting for my paycheque. Is that too late or still ok HS?

When I try to log in via the "forgot password" function, the site just hangs. Maybe it's my kakplaas internet connection, I will try again later.

But unless you have a Dutch account, https://www.generosity.com/projects/hel ... contribute is probably the way to go.
