Story

My dad is 52 years young & he is battling with C.U.P... A rare form of cancer. He's been told he has just 6 months left to live.
Dad may have the opportunity to travel to Germany to undergo immunotherapy treatment. This is a pioneering new treatment with huge success rates, putting many patients (even with terminal diagnosis) into complete remission. This life saving treatment comes at a cost of around £40,000 per cycle. Money that we just do not have access to.
My dad has never been a charity. He has worked all of his life to provide for his chronically ill wife, his disabled son & I. He has never asked for help before in his life (even now in this desperate situation, he does not feel a worthy enough cause & has resigned himself as beyond help). He may not feel like an important person in this world, but I can assure you that he is the most important person in our world. He has 3 young grandchildren who idolise him, & I am sure they would feel the pain of losing him as deeply as loosing a parent. He has a wonderful extended family who I know will do all they can to help, but sadly it's just not enough. Which is why I am pleading with as many people as possible: please give what you can, by giving a donation you are giving hope to my family: that my brother wont lose his carer, his friend & his constant source of support & that my mother won't lose "her half", the man she has loved since she was 14 years old, her protector & her rock. You will have saved 3 little girls from a broken heart & will have enabled me to make the impossible - possible!
Should my dad be unable to make use of the funds we raise, we would like to assure you that any money unused or left over will go directly to support immunotherapy trials in this country, so that at some point in the future families like ours will not have to travel & fund such vital treatment alone, that it will be made easily available to all who need it right here in the UK. THANK YOU 💖#GetBillBetter
