    Story

    My darling husband and soul mate was diagnosed with stage 4 bowel cancer 3 years ago, after a 7 hour operation to remove the tumour that had obstructed his bowel, he had to have chemotherapy which was devastating to see what it did to his body. He was such a fighter and stayed positive, was in remission for 2.5 years, at his last check up which we were so positive about, they found that the cancer had come back.

    It had moved to his lung, seriously... what else does this poor man have to go through, we saw a surgeon and the date was set for him to have lung surgery. The day before the surgery we received a call to say they couldn't operate as they found it is back in the bowel and can't operate until the tumour in the bowel is removed.

    More appointments with different surgeons on the "plan" to remove the tumour in the bowel, he was so positive that he had this, he beat it once he will do it again.

    We weren't ready to receive the news that the tumour is growing on the outside of the bowel towards his spine and they are not able to remove it.

    More chemotherapy and radiation and he was ready to kick some cancers butt.

    A few months later I had to rush him to A&E because of another blockage that resulted in him having major surgery which now means he has a stoma, anything to help him be able to have more time.

    Then the life changing news that he is terminal and there is nothing more they can do for him.

    As a wife you say "I Do" in sickness and health and never expect the sickness to be as devastating as Cancer that will rob you of all the dreams you have planned with your soulmate.

    What is heart wrenching for me is that I so wish I could grant all his wishes personally, playing golf at St Andrew Linx courses and many other goals, this is my plea to anyone to please help me grant my darling husband these wishes so that he can experience as many of his dreams off his bucket list as possible.

      So the excitment of the Golf Tour has come to an end with not so good news im afraid. Darron really struggled with pain the week he got back and luckily he got an oncology appointment letter in the post and we went on Tuesday. THe tumour has grown and is causing complications now, he has been referred to the palative care team and we were told that his only option now is to have another dose of chemo to try and prolong things for him. This chemo is stronger than the previous 2 with a 1.4 chance of actually succeeding. We just want more time...

      My darling Darron and his friend Jacques completed Bucket List Golf Tour, thank you to all that contributed to helping them achieve this. Darron struggled to be the PRO golfer he wished he was with hitting loads of "BAD" shots. Unfortunately he had all good intensions on walking all the courses, but the tumour landed up showing him who is "boss", so they had to get buggies for 3 of the 7 days as he couldnt handle walking anymore.

    I'm Darron's wife Deborah and am not one to ask for help with personal situations and always stay positive and do my best to resolve the situation myself. However this one is a little too big for me to resolve myself and that is why I am asking for help.. hope I don't offend
