Thank you so very much for your time in reading this. We set this up in the hopes you can help contribute to help us fulfill one last dying wish.
It all began about 2 years ago, my sister's husband suffered a seizure while on holiday. After medical examinations they discovered it was due to a Brain tumour, he underwent an operation to remove the tumour only for the surgeons to discover a second tumour hiding behind the one they cut out in which they couldn't remove. He then received radiotherapy which did seem to kill the tumour. After giving the all clear he went on about his life, not having much luck with his health he needed a hip and shoulder replacement. After under going surgery and again getting back to a normal life, he suffered an other seizure in April of this year. After medical examinations he went in for an other operation to remove the newly grown tumour, for whatever reason the surgeon decided to preform an additional scan before the op, this scan showed up several tumours Which had grown over a course of a week. The operation was canceled as the tumours where inoperable. Ever since that day he as suffered several seizure , he last seizure hospitalised him for 23 days. It was during this time he was given a life expectancy of just two short months. After my sister and this amazing bloke had been together for about 16 years, bringing into the world three amazing boys, the oldest 13 and the youngest 9, they eventually got married while Michael was in hospital. He is now home living out the remaining weeks he has left with his amazing family. Despite it all he hasn't lost his sense of humour, cracking jokes and making everyone else smile, friends, family or strangers. His medical team are inspired by his positive out look on life and his sense of humour he brings with his personality. After spending 10 years in service as a fireman and doing what he could in his local community Michael is very much liked by those he meets, always there to lend a hand and putting others first, however due to his circumstances he's unable to provide for his family one last time and unfortunately once he passes they will lose their family car (the car is provided due to his disabilities ), he only has a few concerns before he passes and one of those is for his wife and children to be able to get to and from school, and work. The savings they had, have already been spent on caring for Michael and making him as comfortable as possible. If Michael had his way he would have spent it on a car, but my sister who is at the moment caring for him full time wouldn't put her needs first and would rather spend her last penny if it meant Michael could have a little comforT.
Unfortunately I am only in the position to give them £500 towards a new car. I know we wouldn't be able to buy a decent car before he leaves us, but if I can raise a little he will have less to worry about in his final days knowing there is a good chance his family will have a car and their independent it will bring.
Thank you all for taking your time to read this and any left over Donations will be donated back on to just giving and towards the hurricane relief.
