On the 11th August 2019 Panayiotis Demetriou suffered a severe Intracerebral Haemorrhage to his brain and was taken to the ICU (Intensive Care Unit) at Nicosia General Hospital. Doctors there told us that his condition was critical.
His family flew out to Cyprus to be with him and his wife he has two daughters Maria and Androulla and son Jimmy,having been told it was likely that he only had days to live.

It had come as such a huge shock to them all as the day before he was having fun and playing in the garden with his great grandchildren who were there on holiday.
The past 9 weeks have been a whirlwind.
Maria and Androulla have been away from their families and their work to be by his side. They refuse to give up hope and talk to him each and every day to encourage a response.

On 11th September, due to overcrowding at the General Hospital their dad was moved to the ICU at the AMERCIAN MEDICAL CENTRE in Nicosia where he continued to receive treatment.
However, after 9 weeks of treatment and continued efforts to communicate with him; he has finally managed to open his eyes and say one or two words even though they were told he might never speak again.
So far, their beloved dad has defeated all the odds and miraculously pulled through a tremendous storm. He is a true fighter and wherever he was in his mind we really believe he has been able to hear us in the distance talking to him and gained the strength to fight back.
But he is not out of the woods yet.  Despite any improvement his condition is still critical and the only chance they have for him to continue his recovery is if they are able to bring him back to the UK where they would be better able to support him.
The only way they can return him to the UK is by Air Ambulance at a cost of £35,000.00 which is money do simply do not have.
They cannot continue to stay in Cyprus to be with him indefinitely. Being away from their families in the UK has been so tough and desperately need to bring him back here with them so they can continue to support him and where he can continue to receive the treatment he requires in order to recover.

I know it is a lot to ask but anything you can donate will make a huge difference and would give their Dad the chance he needs to live.
