The page says: "My father has been taken to ICU in Thailand with a terminal illness.

"He has no insurance and we do not have the money to cover his rising expenses.

"We are trying to return him to the UK but as he is in ICU he will require specialist travel.

"Please help us bring my father home for urgent medical care."

He added: "The chances of dying are 30-50%. Since he was admitted to ICU the medical bills have soared."
