A loving husband who was instructed by doctors to give up his wife after getting into a coma is desperately trying to find the money to bring her home.
Anna Louie and her husband Vincent moved from Australia to London in 2014 to start a new chapter, but soon ended up in a living nightmare.
In 2017, a benign tumor was found in Mrs. Louie’s throat and although it was removed within four years with four surgeries, swelling caused persistent respiratory problems.

After trying alternative therapies for months, Ms. Louie went into a coma in April 2019 after she started choking in the shower.
“While she was taking a shower, Anna tried to scrape some mucus in her throat when it all happened. Anna had vomited, which led to an obstruction of the airways, “Mr. Louie said.
“I still remember her face when she tried to breathe for seven or eight minutes until her heart stopped in front of my eyes and she fell in my arms lifeless.
“That was the worst moment of my life.”
Mr. Louie said that after paramedics arrived to save his wife, his house looked like a “battle zone” with blood and medical equipment everywhere.
Paramedics and two doctors working on Mrs. Louie were needed to keep her alive long enough to take her to a hospital.
“But she was unconscious and was put in a coma on arrival at the hospital,” Mr. Louie said.
While Mr. Louie waited anxiously in the hospital while doctors performed brain scans on Mrs. Louie, doctors gave him heartbreaking news.

He was told to accept that the woman he knew had disappeared forever.
“The emergency department advisor sat down and said,” Remember, I wanted to have hope earlier this week, I’m sorry, but I don’t want you to have any hope, “Mr. Louie said.
The consultant told Mr. Louie that his wife had suffered serious hypoxic brain injury and “would never be the person you ever knew.”
Then Mr. Louie was told that if his wife’s condition deteriorated further, he should consider “letting her go.”
“He said she would never have memories and personality and would eventually have to live in a townhouse,” said Mr. Louie.
“My world broke down on that day. The thought that this might be the end of Anna’s hopes and dreams was without a doubt the worst day of my life. “
Still in London, Mr. Louie is desperate to bring his wife back to Melbourne.
He launched one GoFundMe campaign asking for $ 75,000 to achieve this goal and the page has already generated $ 81,000 in donations.
Amazingly in the ten months since the diagnosis that Mrs. Louie has regained consciousness and improves every day.
“I have assisted and supported Anna every day for the past ten months, witnessing her courageous spirit as we fight this fight side by side,” said Mr. Louie.
‘Everyone has asked what they can do to help. This is how you can help. Bringing Anna home costs a lot of money.
Mrs Louie needs medical transfers, medical escorts on the plane, a portable suction machine and 24/7 care during the flight home.
“I long for the day my wife can look into my eyes and say these three words -” I Love You, “said Mr. Louie.
Doctors told Mr. Louie that the woman he knew and loved would never be the same and he had to be ready to “let her go,” but he fought to get the money to take her home when she met her recovery begins
