TREV’S DAY: Family to hold fundraising day in support of Hemel Hempstead man

 Published on: 22nd May 2024   |   By: Annabel Stock   |   Category: Uncategorized

A fundraiser set up to support a man who suffered a heart attack in Mexico has reached £24,000.

Trevor Dealey, who lives in Hemel Hempstead and was born in Kings Langley, was hospitalised in Mexico on May 11 after going into cardiac arrest. Since then, Trevor has developed an infection and is now dependent on a ventilator.

According to the latest update, Trevor is in the General State Hospital in Cancun where he is in a “critical but stable” condition, and doctors are going to begin reducing the ventilator as his body is “doing some of the work”.

A GoFundMe set up to raise funds for his treatment and flight back to the UK has just hit £24,000.

His partner, Sarah, was interviewed this morning on BBC 3 Counties Breakfast Show this morning.

A family fundraiser, Trev’s Day, will be held at Kings Langley Football Club from 2pm on Monday, May 27, to raise funds for Trevor’s treatment and flight home to the UK. There will be raffles, auctions and music, and it is hoped that Claire Cordell from the BBC talent show The Voice will be performing.

Writing on Facebook, Trevor’s partner Sarah said: “It is now our mission to get Trevor on a medical flight home, where he can receive the proper treatment and care that he needs. We just need your support in helping us to achieve this by donating whatever you can and sharing our posts. Your support so far has been amazing and we can not thank each and every one of you enough but we just need to keep going.”

According to a GoFundMe page launched by Trevor’s daughter, Megan, the family has been hit with medical bills totaling more than $100,000. Worse, Megan says that Trevor’s travel insurance company is refusing to pay out.
