    Friends of Jed Unite.

    Friends of Jed, may or may not be aware that Jed has been diagnosed with stage four stomach cancer. Unfortunately the NHS are no longer able to help other than offering palliative care.

    However there is hope, the Royal Marsden Hospital London have agreed to treat Jed by using new pioneering cancer drugs and chemotherapy technology. To fight this horrible disease Jed will need to be a private patient to take full advantage of this treatment.

    It is estimated that this treatment will take approximately six months consisting of regular weekly trips and stopovers at the Royal Marsden London clinic.

    There is no doubt that Jed and Family have the fight of their lives both emotionally and financially in front of them. As friends of Jed we can all pull together to help with this fight by assisting financially towards the private treatment costs and travel expenses at the London clinic.

    If you are able to contribute financially we would all most appreciate it. Please share this page with others, or link them to

    We all need a Jed to brighten up our lives so let’s help keep Jed healthy and orange.

    PS, As a pause for thought assisting Jed in his fight today using these new pioneering treatments may help others in the future.

    On behalf of Jed and family thank you for your support.

      Thanks to the amazing support of Barnstaple we have been able to finance the first part of Jed’s treatment. He had biopsy’s taken last week and after a meeting on Monday he has been given hope that after chemo he has the option of surgery followed by further chemo. There has been a further development where he has the option to be part of a new trial drug that could give hope to many in the future. We still have a very long and extremely difficult journey ahead of us and thanks to everyone’s love and support it has been made possible. Xx

      This is just amazing reaching a target in just four days! We cannot thank you all enough - it has just completely overwhelmed us. We are back to London next week for the start of several procedures so this will go a long way in helping - so thank you to you all - you are all amazing! We would also like to thank those businesses who are going above and beyond with events. It was so unexpected and it is just incredible the way that the Barnstaple community has pulled together. Thank you just isn't a big enough word. xx
