We have raised $3,000 so far and I am about to have a call with the hospital with a Spanish speaker who will verify the doctor’s prognosis and talk to the administrator regarding costs.

I have just made contact with Judy, his sister, and she knows about this campaign. She remembers that I was the person who brought Will back from St. Maarten last year so a connection has been made! She said that the Foreign Office will not pay for any of the bills associated with this situation. The F.O. have contacted the hospital in Lima to see if a bed is available and at the moment there aren’t any, but they are working on getting one. If one is found then there is a bed to go to, depending on Will’s ability to be transported from Tarapoto by Medivac plane.

Thank you for your amazing response so far. We have raised just over $2,000. If you are in need of verification that this is a real situation, please reach out to me using the email savewill@savewillwelch.com, or one of your friends who may know Will.
