Story

Scott has GBM4. For those of your who don‘t know what that is, its brain cancer. Stage 4. The most aggressive type. Before scott’s diagnosis, I wasn’t even aware that brain cancer was a ‘thing’. But it is, And a very nasty one.

2 years ago, 23rd of march 17, i took scott to hospital as i was concerned about him. He had headaches and wasn’t quite himself. Having been together for 18 years then, you know someone pretty well. Wasn’t expecting what they told us though! A tumour and a big one. 6cms! He had surgery within two weeks. The surgery went well but then we received the devastatings news that its was GBM4. Glioblastoma multiforme. The worst type. we stayed positive as possible and was offered the standard treatment of combined oral chemo and radiotherapy for 6 weeks followed by 6 cycles (which were months too) of oral chemotherapy. This treatment is gruelling at the best of times but made harder by staying as positive as possible for our 3 young children.

Scott lost his hair, weight and confidence. But managed to amazingly complete the trearment fully which is a reflection on how amazing he is.

He had 6 months of ‘normal’ where things felt good and he was doing really well, kids were happy and we were a happy little family. Then sadly a routine mri showed a regrowth. He had the 2nd surgery last june. Although the surgery went well it has left some side effects of personality changes and some memory loss. His team offered him a different type of chemo. This has had awful side effects and resulted in him being hospitalised over christmas for 14 days with treatment related sepsis. Was really hard on him, the children and myself, not to mention the rest of our families. scott recovered from the sepsis slowly and was gaining strength and his health was returning. Until 23rd may. Our youngest sons 6th birthday and scott was told that the tumour was growing again and that sadly surgery WAS NOT an option this time as it‘s growing into a ventricle.

We are looking at alternative treatment in the way of immunotherapy. There is no actual cure for gbm4 on offer through the NHS and treatment in the UK privately is quite limited so we are searching for immunotherapy treatments in Europe.

Please help keep this amazing man alive for longer to create memories for our 3 children, Jackson 11, Alannah 8, and Austin 6 and to try and beat this truly awful beast of a disease.
