Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
This is for my friend Barry. Who has been my best friend since the millennium and will be my friend forever.
Except forever is no longer an option, early last year Barry was diagnosed with stage 4 terminal esophageal cancer.
He is 42 years old and is coming to the end of his healthy life. It is beyond heartbreaking to see such an active spirit become caged to the relent of his illness.
We have exhausted the treatment given to him and in turn it has exhausted his body, he is no longer is able to eat and is no longer able to use his throat. It has been such a struggle to maintain a healthy mind when your body is letting go of all the goodness.
It is Barrys birthday in December, followed by Christmas shortly after, however much i would love wish and hope that he will see another, i believe that the reality is that this should be one not to forget.
Barry has always been an avid extreme sportsman, he has lived a fast paced sporting life, bmx, skateboard, Horse racing, snowboarding, golf and anything he could get his adrenaline hands on.
These days sometimes it is a struggle to get down the stairs.
It is a long shot to ask for this but i cant think of anything more wonderful than combining all of his loves in a well orchestrated way to adapt them to his needed requirements.
I would be eternally grateful to anyone who can help me achieve this goal.
My dream surprise would be for him to take a helicopter ride with some friends and to hit the ski slopes to allow him to arrive in style and hit the slopes that he so loves.
Thankyou in advance to anyone who can help, and of course you are ALL invited.
Thankyou once again.
