Story

Father to an amazing son Sam (9) and a beautiful daughter Grace (4). Husband to an incredible mother, wife and best friend Debbie. Youngest of 3 inseparable brothers and son to adoring parents. Currently a 19 year servant to Queen and Country with the Royal Air Force.

Jordan Brown, a 36 year old Royal Air Force Serviceman has been diagnosed with a malignant brain tumour.

In the early hours of 29 Mar 17, after a single nocturnal generalised seizure, he was taken to West Suffolk Hospital where CT and MRI scans revealed a large tumour - Glioma, in the left hand side of his brain.

On the morning of the 5 May 17 Jordan underwent an Awake Craniotomy, to try and de-bulk as much of the tumour as possible. Unfortunately even with the best efforts and persistence from Dr Tom (neurosurgeon), he and his team were unable to remove any of the tumour. The surgery lasted 8 hours which took a lot out of Jordan due to multiple seizures, during and post operation. The impact of the seizures continued for two days and eventually put him in to the Neurooncology Critical Care Unit.

After 9 days in hospital he was able to find out more about what this thing was growing on his brain. It was confirmed to be a 9.4 x 5 cm Oligodendroglioma, which requires a treatment of 6 weeks of radiotherapy then 36 weeks of chemotherapy.

After researching desperately, his wife Debbie discovered alternate treatments including Proton Beam Therapy £100,000 - £250,000, various infusions including magnetic and immunotherapy £100,000 and an exciting Apollo Moon Shot Program designed for this particular tumour, should the radio and chemotherapy treatment not be successful.

However these treatments can be extremely expensive and often conducted outside of the UK. Jordan would love to raise £350,000 including all of his families savings to be able to undergo treatment at The MD Anderson Cancer Centre, Texas.

All monies raised will go towards treatments, if the monies raised is not enough to cover these treatments or is more than is required then all money not used will be donated back to fighting cancer and other support charities.
