Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
My dad was diagnosed with terminal pancreas and liver cancer in may 2015 at Cambridge hospital. We was informed that he has 6-9 months left of normal functioning until the condition got worse. It was 3 months later in September when the condition began to get a lot worse and we had to take matters into our own hands after dad was taken into hospital with serious chest pains. We turned to medicinal marijuana oil. He started taking the oil immediately. In his circumstances it proved helpful and gave him many more months of normal functional living. However the good moments didn't last long.
January of 2016 the chest pains reappeared and he was sent back into hospital and went under a round of chemotherapy which lasted 7 months, after which Doctors decided to stop the chemotherapy as it wasn't helping or slowing down the cancer growth.
It has now been 1.5 years of him living with this condition. This is almost 100% than what the doctors predicted in may of 2015. We believe this is due to the medicinal marijuana.
There is only one hope left. It is a drug called Abraxane which is a different type of chemotherapy. Of course there is no 100% guarantee of how well this would work on our dad however this is the last thing we are able to do. This is a very expensive drug at a price of £10.000 which would provide a further 6 months of treatment.
Because we are unable to pay this large amount of money with our parents not being able to work due to this condition we would appreciate any small donations, words cannot describe how much this would mean to us.
Please help us save him.
