    Story

    It's a matter of life and death and I'm asking for your help.

    On the 21st July 2017, after many months of trying to get doctors to take my pain seriously, I was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. For those of you who don't know about Pancreatic Cancer it has the lowest survival rate of all cancers with only around 5% of those diagnosed surviving for 5 years. While most other cancers have seen improved rates of survival over the past 40 years Pancreatic Cancer has not.

    I am only 41 years old. I have a loving wife and two sons aged 4 & 6 who I desperately want to see grow up and be a part of their lives. I had plans for a future with my family, a future where we would go camping and climbing mountains and have lightsaber fights in the park and I would teach them important 'dad' lessons like the rules of rugby and how to shave. I'm not ready to give up on that future, it is a future worth fighting for.

    By the time my cancer was diagnosed the tumour was too big to operate on and too close to major arteries. I am hoping to raise enough money to be able to pay for new surgery unavailable on the NHS called Nanoknife surgery. This involves having fine needles inserted into the tumour so that a high voltage current can be passed into the tumour to kill the cancerous cells. This technology will give me a much greater chance of survival than other methods currently offered to me.

    It feels strange to be begging people who I may or may not know to save my life but that is what I'm doing. I'm desperate and I'm begging you. I understand the financial constraints on many people at the moment but if you are able to contribute anything towards giving me the weapons to fight this disease I will be eternally grateful to you. Please help me stay alive for my wife, for my mother, for my brother and my sister and most importantly for my children, my beautiful young boys. If you are unable to help me financially I thank you for reading my story and ask you to share it with your friends and family.

      Just had a terrible week because of the aftermeth of my first chemo session. Been sick non stop and really depressed. So to come on here and see I've gone beyond my target is like a dream come true. With people still donating and charity days planned I'm feel so blessed. The monet raised is only a ball park figure so I want to thank everyone for all they've done. When all is said and done anything left will be donated to Pancreatic charities, here's hoping we can keep raising and help to fight such a terrible thing. I love you all. xxxxxx
