Diagnosed with advancing stage 4 non hodgkin lymphona cancer December 4th 2015 given only 100 to 120 days to live, that was 895 days ago at the time of typing this piece of text. The extremely difficult decision to not use conventional practices of extract, cut out and poison which were not even offered at the time of the ‘we’re sorry there is very little hope’ diagnosis through the NHS has meant that despite reversing the original diagnosis to ranging between stages 1 and 2, in order to maintain that level of health to give my body all it needs to heal and grow more healthy cells than cancerous ones, I am stuck in a spiral of having to pay for every single thing medical including all vital vitamin suppliments, high strength 100mg intraveinous vitamin C for ten days every 12 weeks, vitamin B12 shots when needed which is currently every ten to twelve weeks, fresh organically grown food and ingredients, steamer heads for the steamer once a month, every appointment, consultant, specialist, doctor, right down to dressings for my surgical wounds. There is a massive list. As I had pre existing conditions of immune deficency as I have no spleen, tiny part of my pancreas left, no gallbladder, have had 4.5 meters removed of my bowels, a bypass and albinism, if medical treatments are needed in relation to any of those then fine but as soon as the doctor reads I’ve been diagnosed with terminal cancer not receiving chemo or radiation it cancels my entitlement to everything, all except factor 50 sunscreen and or morphine neither toxins welcome or wanted for an already failing body. I am extremely thankful for all help already gifted which has given me more days than doctors thought possible. Without help now my health will continue to reach unmanagable levels and could become terminal again very quickly. Without funds generously given by you, my children and I could lose our home this time as I have to chose between getting basic things, maintaining our home or getting the treatments that actually work for me, its an impossible position to be in so I’m asking for help before I drown under the sea of stress and anxiety all of the uncertainty is causing. Thank you for considering, all help gratefully received big or small, share this page widely, I am not going down without a fight or resorting to shortening my life by taking chemo that will destroy my remaining immunity or surgical intervention when my survival odds are only 18 to 25% at the moment. I have faith I can do this but know it will work with your help now. Being here for Christmas this year will be an amazing gift of life. Thank you.
