    Story

    In November 2016, just before my 25th birthday, I was diagnosed with Fibrolamellar Hepatocellular Carcinoma, an extremely rare (1 In 5 million) form of Liver Cancer.

    Since then my health has deteriorated, and continues to do so every day. My diagnosis is terminal but I choose not to ask my doctor how long I have left, I prefer not knowing.

    The treatment I'm currently undergoing will hopefully extend my life by however much is possible, but my real hope is that this new treatment will provide liver cancer patients greater survival rates in the future.

    Before getting sick, one of my life goals was to eventually buy my own Tesla, as I absolutely love their business ethos and the cars they produce. However now I am sick, I cannot work towards buying one, as I rely on sickness benefits as my only source of income.

    That's why I am asking for help. It's a big ask, especially of people that have never even met me. With that said, I am hopeful that through the kindness of friends and strangers I might achieve my dream of owning my very own Tesla, some thing that would mean the world to me before my time comes and I check out.

      It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I have to announce that on Tuesday 20th February my brother Chris Holt slipped into a coma following his battle, before passing away peacefully on the morning of Wednesday 21st February. As part of his wishes for the money raised through JustGiving, all donations will be used to part-fund his funeral, and the remainder given straight to the charity Fibrolamellar Cancer Foundation, the charity he had nominated. Good luck to the walkers on Saturday. Thank you all for your kind donations. Jon Holt

      This has bought me untold amounts of time and is truly amazing news, and the company providing the treatment are so pleased with the result they are going to continue providing it free of charge! Obviously myself and my family are completely overwhelmed by the days events, so if you attempt to contact me in the next few days and I don't respond, it's because we're still processing the news. In the meantime, thanks once again to all my supporters. Your help really does carry me forwards, I love you all beyond words! Chris

      (continued) ...holiday in Sweden, I've attached an image of me next to their largest waterfall for those who are interested! I had a fantastic time, and it helped put my mind off my upcoming oncology appointment, which took place today, and I'd love the opportunity to share the result with everyone that has contributed to me achieving my dream. The latest treatment has had a miraculous effect on the right tumour within my liver, completely stopping all vascular activity which hopefully should kill the tumour... (continued)

    Living with liver cancer is very debilitating, I tire very easily and the medication I'm on causes weakness in my legs,so I'm in a wheelchair most of the time. I'm currently undergoing a treatment called SIRT, in the hopes that the data they gain will help others in the future
