Help me see my son (Updated - Target reached)

My son, Jake Perry is a young Australian who recently moved to the UK to be with his newborn daughter.

He's a fun, energetic young man, who was born and bred right here on the Gold Coast. A loving son and a great father to his 2yr old Ava, we've been living on opposite sides of the world now for over 3yrs.

While walking home on Saturday night, Jake was violently assaulted in High Street, Alton Hampshire UK.

Police were hesitant to release any details, however we know that he sustained serious head injuries as a result of blunt force trauma to the left side of his head.

Upon admission to Southampton General Hospital a massive haemotoma was found which caused significant brain swelling and bleeding on the brain. Jake has been put into an induced coma and is currently on life support in a critical condition. Police have advised me that strangely, he sustained no other injuries, suggesting he was not in a fight, but was attacked without warning.

We do know that 3 males aged 20, 24 and 25 have been arrested so far in connection with the matter and the street has been shut down as this is a major crime and still under investigation.

I am pleading with you to help me.

Let me be by his side before it's too late. While I am hoping for the best outcome, his status is critical and time is of the essence. If I am able to see him anytime soon, it will only be with your help.

I have approached the Australian consulate to navigate the travel ban and COVID-19 restrictions and have been told that the only flight meeting all the criteria comes at a cost of $14,000.

I am a single mother without the means to do this and desperately need your help.

Please let me get to my son before it's too late.
