Please help us raise some money to help bud . As many of you know bud has been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer which has spread to his liver and back in November he was given 9-12 months to live with chemotherapy and we are already on month 4 . So far he has tolerated chemo well and he is just starting cycle 4 out of 6 and the main tumour has shrunk a tiny bit but the tumours on his liver have faded and some have disappeared completely . The next two cycles will be the last offered from the nhs for 6 months as this is what palliative treatment consists of but unfortunately bud does not have time on his side and we think this is too long to go without treatment. We have found a treatment centre in Istanbul who have being getting fantastic results with a combination of chemotherapy , oxygen therapy and also thermia treatment this treatment is also being carried out in other counties ie USA and Germany . we know of so many people from the uk that have had this treatment in Istanbul with positive outcomes this could prolong buds life for many years .Bud is a fit and healthy 53 years old apart from this nasty cancer who has too much to live for he has two sons Joshua and William the youngest been only 13 too young to lose his dad we need him to stick around for a lot longer as he is our world our super hero . Please help us how ever big or small you donation is . Many thanks an eternally grateful Hardisty family
