Divemaster Gabi Loco, is also in very serious condition and at this report is unable to walk and has no movement in his legs. Our dear friend, Gabi is the father of three and is unable to work. He also does not have insurance and needs hyperbaric treatments for the next 2-3 months and physical therapy to be able to walk again. Fortunately for Health, he has full coverage health care and D.A.N. insurance that will fully cover his expenses. We have set up a Pay Pal accounts for Opal and Gabi and ALL donations raised will go directly to all their medical expenses including the hyperbaric chamber expenses, hospital bills, doctor bills, and transportation costs. Additionally, the cost to move Opal to a U.S. hospital is approximately $20,000 USD. PLEASE…time is of the essence. Please donate any amount to help toward these staggering medical costs. Right now, it is URGENT that Opal be moved to a U.S. facility as soon as possible. She is becoming increasingly unstable and time is of the essence. We have set up two Pay Pal accounts for the benefit of Opal and Gabi. For OPAL please donate to: We are saddened and devastated by what has happened to our very dear friends and are asking you to please help us help them. Please forward this on to your friends and extended family in the dive community. We are a a strong but resilient community, yet, words
