Wife of a Chesterfield man starts campaign to try and get her husband back to the UK after his stroke last month

Andrea and Darren Fantom are currently living out in Cyprus.

The wife of a Chesterfield man living in Cyprus is desperately raising money to fly him home, after he suffered a double stroke last month.

Andrea Fantom is crowdfunding, after doctors said it would be best for her husband Darren to get back to the UK and be cared for by his family.

She told Peak FM it's a difficult situation;

"I have some support from friends and work colleagues, who've been absolutely fantastic, but obviously we need our family.

"I can't rely on others for his care, he isn't their responsibility, he's my responsibility, and his family just want him back home.

"They're over three thousand miles away, and there's just nothing anybody can do.

"Everybody is feeling helpless, even the Doctors here in Cyprus have said that Darren's recovery will be so much better with the support of his family."
