Weʼre raising £30,000 to Raise Money for Andy Jones to obtain treatment/therapy that is not available on the NHS.

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


In December 2016, my husband Andy received the devastating news that he had a cancerous and aggressive brain tumour, a Glioblastoma Multiforme, the most common high grade primary brain tumour in adults.

Having undergone brain surgery, six weeks of radiotherapy and six months of the "gold standard" chemotherapy, his tumour, unfortunately showed subtle signs of progression. Since then, Andy has switched to a different chemotherapy but the tumour has continued to grow.

Whilst the NHS have been nothing but amazing, the treatment offered just isn't working so we now need to consider therapies and drugs that are available privately.

Andy is having his third surgery on 29th December to remove as much of the tumour as his neuro surgeon can physically see and then we need to hit it using treatment and therapy which is not available on the NHS but has been recommended via a second opinion we had in London.

The highest costing treatment will involve Andy wearing 4 adhesive patches on his head for upto 22 hours a day to deliver therapy direct to the tumour area. This is a costly treatment and will also require monthly visits to London for maintenance, MRI's etc. Whilst it is not curative, we hope it will keep him here a lot longer.

It's a big thing for us to ask everyone for help and we honestly wouldn't ask if we didn't need to. Any donations/fundraising anyone can do to help would be REALLY appreciated.

In the event that Andy can't use the money raised, we will donate it straight to The Brain Tumour Charity for their essential research.

Many thanks for all your support, it means so much.

Nicola, Andy and Rhieyen xx

    Andy will be starting treatment on 9th April!!!!! He will need a scan in London in two weeks time prior to starting. We will also need to go to London every four weeks for maintenance. Negotiations took a while and were not as straight forward as expected so we will need to keep the fundraising going in order for the therapy to continue - if you can still help that would be amazing. Thank you to everyone for all your support.
