ON 27th August 2011 Ryan Marven was involved in a minibus accident in Thailand where he lived with his girlfriend Rie Richardson.
He suffered a fractured skull and a bone fragment had to be removed from his brain. Following this surgery Ryan fell into a coma.
Friends and family are now trying to raise money to pay ongoing medical bills and, as soon as he is stable enough, fly him home.
