    Hastings, United Kingdom
    Funded on Thursday, 7th December 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    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.

    Story

    As many of you know Danny was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in November 2016. It's been quite a journey… a long winter of chemotherapy, very major surgery (whipples procedure), 2 months recovery, adjuvant chemotherapy and then, heartbreakingly, a recurrence of the disease in the abdominal wall. We were told not to think about a cure, but to focus on prolonging Danny’s life, and to improve the quality of life for as long as possible. 5 year survival is 4% in the UK, 7% in US.

    Despite pancreatic cancer being in the ‘hard to treat’ category, there are breakthroughs in research happening, particularly in the US. The latest treatment is becoming increasingly personalised. It starts with genetic profiling: tissue is taken from a patient, and studied at a molecular level. This allows the oncologist to understand the particular gene mutations that make up that person’s tumour, and better direct treatment.

    This fund is to raise money to help pay for Molecular Profiling for Danny, which is not yet available on the NHS. We believe it is the way forward and may link into new drug trials. For further information about latest treatment I recommend http://letswinpc.org

      Running with this man's name on my back kept me going round the endless streets of Bristol on Sunday. Made the classic mistake of starting off too fast and running out of steam towards the end - to the point of taking an impressive tumble as I crossed the finish line - but managed an acceptable 1:52. Thanks to everyone who donated, shared and sent encouragement, it really kept me going and I'm so pleased to make a small contribution to Danny's treatment. Big love to the lovely Pockets crew x

      What an amazing start to the week. Thanks to everyone on Team Pockets for helping us reach the target so quickly! I'm going to keep this page open for a bit to update you on Danny's progress and to post a (probably) tired and sweaty photo after Sunday's race... This has been a tough year for Danny and family but there have been some lovely moments too. Here's Danny manning the barbecue this summer solstice in Hastings - a special evening full of sun, late swims and the best of company x
