Story

My wife, Beverley, went to the doctors with a routine cough and cold complaint in August 2018. After a Endoscopy showed up some areas of concern, further tests including biopsies and scans uncovered stomach cancer that had been there for over 12 months. Nine weeks of Chemotherapy were completed in an attempt to reduce the tumour and stop any spread.

Last week she had an operation to remove her stomach in an attempt to cure her cancer. The surgeons had to abort the operation when they discovered that the cancer had already spread to areas outside of the stomach.

The cancer is inoperable so we have to resort to drugs and alternative solutions. The surgeon at the Churchill Hospital in Oxford who performed the operation has urged us to try Immunotherapy in combating the disease. This is available through private healthcare in Europe but only as clinical trials through the NHS in the UK. There are no trials currently open to us so to help this amazing 55 year old woman, wife, mother, grandmother and friend I am asking for your incredible help. The money will help provide the Immunotherapy or Heated intraperitoneal chemotherapy in Germany and give Beverley the hope and determination to beat this horrible disease.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart on behalf of our children; grandchildren, family, friends and most importantly; Beverley.

    Just returned from Frankfurt after visiting Prof. Vogl so thought an update is important. After a scan on Monday the positive news is that they can treat the cancer with a process called TACE. Yesterday Bev had her first treatment which involved drugs being inserted directly into the blood vessels around the tumour to start destroying the cancer cells. There will be 3 more treatments a month apart at a cost of £4500 each (£18,000). The hope is the tumour will have shrunk when we go back in March and we have other options to start soon too! xxx

    We are so in awe of the kindness and generosity that you have all given us this week and shocked at the amount of people who have donated, those we know and those we don't. You are all amazing people. We have now booked to fly to Frankfurt on the 18th February to visit the cancer specialist at the University with a view to receiving the first round of a treatment called HIPEC This will cost around £5k per treatment. We hope you don't mind but we have raised the target as we are aware that there are fundraising events happening. Bless you all
