    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    In 2016 at the age of 30 I had the devastating diagnoses of a rare form of cancer called Clear Cell Sarcoma. Worldwide there are only 200 cases at any one time. Up until this year the outlook on this cancer was grave. Conventional therapy does not work. Amputation of limbs is common and the cancer reoccurance rate is high. However recent developments in July 2017 have seen the first reported remission in a patient utilising the immunotherapy drug Pembrolizumab.

    I cannot get access to this treatment through the NHS because the treatment is not licensed for my cancer and the chances of getting a trial for a rare cancer are practically nil. I've tried every avenue. I'm reaching out to everyone for your help to fund my treatment privately and give me back my future to share with my wife and two young boys.

    This is a battle I've had over a year and 3 months that until now had no positive outlook. The surgery I've had was successful in resection of the cancer but within 3 months has returned aggressively.

    I simply can't give up and die when a potential treatment exists.

    Please help and donate anything you can to get me the immunotherapy I need to survive.

    Kind regards,

    Liam Debbage
