Neri is an Emergency Department nurse that has been working in the NHS since 2014. He was a frontline worker during the Covid-19 pandemic.
At the end of July he felt very unwell while at work, resulting in him registering to his own department. That night he was suddenly diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia and required emergency admission for treatment.
Unfortunately he was in between jobs and awaiting a permanent position in the Emergency Department when diagnosed. This means that he is not eligible for sick leave, leaving him with the burden of paying the bills and his rent while undergoing chemotherapy.
He will require further treatment and a bone marrow transplant, which will leave him immunocompromised for months and will not allow him to work for 6 months to a year.
The funds we raise will be used to support his accommodation's costs and bills so that he can carry on focusing on his recovery and can remain in the Country to obtain the best care possible.
He is looking forward to getting better as soon as possible as he wishes to return to work promptly and continue providing people with the best care he is capable of.
