Story

My Dad, Julian Caruso, a well known entertainer and hypnotherapist has been fighting cancer for almost two years now but with your help we could get him back on his feet and have him with us for many more years to come. He needs to receive the best possible treatment through trials and specialist health care and with your help that's what he will get.

For the past 12 months, the hospital have been struggling to manage several infections which have become so bad they are unable to continue his chemotherapy treatments which he urgently needs. We have reached the point where the hospital believes there is no further course of treatment. However, we, his family/friends and most importantly he himself have not given up on his hope for a full recovery.

To that end, we would like to seek further opinions privately on his overall condition and get him well enough to return home which is always the warmest and best place to be when recovering. He's a true fighter and is determined not to give in to this harsh disease. While he will be needing several operations and chemotherapy further down the line, we desperately need to get him cleared of the infections that keep reoccurring in the current hospital environment.

We believe that support from a new hospital followed by healthcare at home in the community must be the best approach to his care. Given the Royal Stoke Hospital/NHS are unwilling to provide support for this new approach we have no choice but to try and fund this ourselves.

Julian, in his line of work as a hypnotherapist for over 40 years, has been privileged enough to help many clients and friends to overcome big obstacles and issues in their daily lives and is now in-turn in need of help from others to get him through his ordeal.

A huge thanks from Julian, me (his son) and his whole family for the support you give. Every donation, no matter how big or small, will help him on his road to recovery and could not be more appreciated.

    2. Julian, who's extremely grateful for your help, is in great spirits and getting stronger by the day. He's even getting involved planning some fund raising events we hope to do shortly. However, we still need your help to raise funds for upcoming costs and if you've not yet given a donation, we ask that you show your support in any way possible. Every little bit helps and with that we can continue to improve the care he's receiving and ultimately change his prognosis to cancer free. With love and hope in our hearts we thank you all.

    Dearest friends and family, Apologies for the delay in updating this webpage, but I'm sure you can imagine.. it's been a very busy time for us all. It's difficult to update everything in 500 characters so I'll post this in two parts. 1. We have some great news; Julian is now back home! With a full care package in place. We're having several daily visits by nurses and carers along with physio therapy once a week. He's not out of the woods yet but his improvements over the last few weeks have been remarkable.
