Josh Pitstra, who we all know in Pattaya as Josh from Baby Boom a Gogo is at the moment in hospital in Pattaya. He has been diagnosed with bone cancer and is also being treated for thrombosis.

He was planning to return home to Holland but due to Covid this was delayed. Due to Covid and health he has lost the business and income. He did not renew his medical insurance as he thought he was to be travelling home to Holland.

He is now waiting for a fit to fly certificate (once the thrombosis is sorted). But once this is given he will still need a medically assisted flight which due to Coronavirus restrictions means covering the costs of doctor/nurse who will travel with him, and also the cost incurred by subsequent quarantine of said medical team.

Josh will need all the financial help that he can get

I made a last trip with some groceries for Poo and an intended visit for Josh on Wednesday but the nursing home, quite understandably is no longer allowing outside visitors.I was able to see Poo and speak at a distance, and hand over the groceries, with a new telephone that. . . . .

Hi everyone.Thank you all for your help so far. Between the funding and cash donations we have passed 200,000 baht.Flying is proving very difficult, as the doctor wants to be sure that the thrombosis has totally cleared. We are still keeping this as Josh's main preference, but the cost may. . . . .
