Jeremy was diagnosed with advanced cancer of the colon aged 39 which had spread to the lymph nodes, he underwent surgery in June 2018 followed by 6 cycles of chemotherapy. Testing carried out on the tumour showed that it was rare and was much more likely to respond to a new immunotherapy treatment which although licenced in America and Europe was not available on the NHS.
In order to increase his chances of survival he started a course of the immunotherapy drug Pembrolizumab in January 2019 at a cost of 7 thousand pound per cycle.
This treatment will entail completion of 6 cycles at a total cost of £42000 which he has to fund himself with his family savings.
