    Story

    Last year my friend Lath was diagnosed with a rare form of neck and head cancer. The way Lath, Suzanna and his Family have fought this diagnosis is inspirational.Their courage and strength is admirable. The results of the treatment so far have been really positive and encouraging. On the 15th October I will be running the Birmingham Half Marathon to try and raise some money to put towards Laths ongoing treatment.

    Please read below Lathams story and I would be really grateful of your support, every little helps!

    "In June 2016, Latham was diagnosed with Nasopharyngeal Cancer, a rare type of neck and head cancer which directly affects the throat, nasal passages and the lymph nodes of the patient. This form of cancer is extremely rare, only representing less than 1 case per 100,000 of all cancer patients.

    It is important to note that although the common routes of chemotherapy and radiotherapy can be used to fight these cancerous cells, they can also cause a lot of harm to the patient undergoing these treatments. In the case of Nasopharyngeal Cancer these treatments can have as low as 2% success on someone with an already strong immune system. People with weaker immune systems to begin with are often more susceptible to damage as the chemotherapy destroys the healthy cells along with the cancerous cells. This essentially makes the body weaker to combat the cancer on its own. In this particular case removing the cancer is also not an option as it is much too close the the nerves and the brain.

    It is with all this in mind, supported by Latham's own personal beliefs, that we are aiming to raise money towards alternative treatment. Through intense research we have found a hospital abroad that will provide the specialized treatments that Latham will need to help him win his fight against this rare condition. These include: vitamin C IV's, oxygen therapy, alkaline diet and cleansing to name a few. The focus of these treatments is not only physical but there is emphasis on restoring and strengthening the psychological impact that the illness poses."
