Weʼre raising £100,000 to help our brother Chris get life changing immunotherapy treatment.
- Taunton, UK
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.
Our brother Chris has recently been diagnosed with Stage 4 oesophogeal cancer which has spread to his liver and lymph nodes which we have been told is inoperable. Sadly the outlook is not good with the treatment that is offered in the UK.
We are currently hoping to raise money for life saving imunatherapy which is extremely expensive and not offered by the NHS hence this page asking for your much needed help.
Chris is married to Lynda and they have 2 children, Bridie and Jack. The photo above was only taken just before his devastating diagnosis. Chris served in the Royal Navy as an electronics engineer and is a Falklands veteran. He also was a well respected policeman who served his community for over 20 years in Bristol and Taunton.
We are so desperate to help our brother who we can't imagine life without. He's so far been very positive after the initial shock of his diagnosis and has always been the life and soul of the party and is our family comedian.
The money raised will go towards the much needed life saving treatment that Chris so desperately needs. Any amount, large or small is so gratefully received on behalf of family and of course Chris.
