Grandparents from Chalfont St Giles are calling for people to support their grandson who is raising money for the hospital that saved his life.
Janice and Mike Greenaway, who have lived in Chalfont St Giles for 30 years, are asking to people to support their grandson, Harvey, 17, as he bids to raise £15,000 for equipment for the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford.
Harvey was in a life threatening car accident in May 2018 and has been through a difficult journey which saw him receive continuous treatment for the rest of the year.
He needed to be airlifted to hospital where he had a section of his skull removed to allow swelling on his brain to ease and it was thought the football loving teenager may not make it through.
Harvey said: “I remained in intensive care on a life support machine for nearly a month. My family were told due to the nature of my brain injury I would likely never walk or play football again and face a very unclear future.
“Throughout my journey I have been kept alive and helped to recover by the most amazing dedicated medical and therapy team at both the hospital and the Oxford Centre Of Enablement (OCE). From the surgeons to the doctors to the nurses and all the therapists I cannot thank you enough.
“It’s my turn to give back and show my thanks for everything you have done for me.”
Harvey’s grandparents, Janice and Mike, said: “Against all odds Harvey has made a remarkable recovery and returned home to be with his family before Christmas.
“I invite you to open the link, to Harvey’s JustGiving page, which describes Harvey’s tough, determined, but positive journey.”
