The terminally ill father stranded in Bali receives permission to fly back to his home in Australia

$ 25,000 has been raised for Duncan Turner (pictured with his daughter) to return to Perth after injuring his knee in Singapore due to the continuing effects of a severe brain injury.

The father with a terminal illness who was stranded in Bali has been given permission to fly home.

Duncan Turner was battling liver disease and a blood clot in his brain during a family party on the "wish list," when a fall in Singapore in July left him in hospital.

After treatment in Singapore, the family had to fly home to Perth via Bali.

But complications arose when Mr. Turner lost consciousness at the first stop, leaving him stranded without travel insurance at a Bali hospital.

The rapid increase in hospital bills and concerns about his health left the uncertainty of whether he would ever return home.

But the family received the good news that it has been authorized to fly, leaving Bali at 9:30 pm on Sunday and landing in Perth in the early hours of Monday morning.

More than $ 25,000 was raised to take Turner on a return flight to Perth.

His pre-existing condition meant he could not qualify for travel insurance, but the family decided it was worth the risk of fulfilling his daughter's desire to swim with dolphins.

After three days in the hospital at a cost of $ 2,470 per day and additional emergency costs of $ 1,300, the family was unable to continue with the bills.

Against medical advice, Turner left the hospital and checked into a Bali hotel to wait until he was well enough to fly home.

The authorization arrived on Sunday and the family announced to WA Today that they would be at home on Monday morning.

& # 39;[The news] It was a sigh of relief, "said Mr. Turner's wife, Michelle Edgar.

"That's what we were waiting for, that authorization to fly."

The couple will fly home, meeting their daughter in Perth.

Turner's medical bills quickly exceeded what the family could afford (Amelie, 6, Michelle and Turner with a dolphin in Singapore)

His daughter, Amelie, took a flight home with her grandmother and returned to school while her parents awaited Mr. Turner's recovery in Bali.

The medical bills exceeded ten thousand dollars and it was likely that Mr. Turner required additional treatment or readmission in the hospital.

In a desperate request to help the family and have Mr. Turner return to Australia for treatment, a Go Fund Me account was created.

Nearly 400 people gathered in just three days to raise more than $ 25,000.

Last Tuesday morning, it was revealed that the amount was sufficient for Mr. Turner to return to Perth on a MedEvac flight.

He could be on a flight home within the next 24 hours as long as he obtains the necessary medical clearance and considers himself well enough to make the trip.

Mrs. Edgar said that she could not be more grateful & # 39; for the financial support of the public.

"It's very overwhelming, very emotional, but in the most positive way possible," he told Nine News.

& # 39; It's so comforting. These are tears of happiness, tears not sad this time.

Mr. Turner suffered a serious head injury from a fall last year, leaving him paralyzed and facing months of repeated attacks and seizures learning to walk and talk again.

His daughter Amelie, who was born prematurely in just 27 weeks and weighed 606 grams, is still very small for her age and was not tall enough to qualify for most of the swimming experiences of Australian dolphins.

The pre-existing health conditions of Mr. Turner meant he did not qualify for travel insurance, but the couple thought that the risk of traveling for five days in Singapore without him would be worth the life of the memories created.
