Story

HE AINT HEAVY HE'S MY BROTHER

On November 29th 2016 my twin brother Martin Day age 47 was given the terrible diagnosis of stage 4 cancer. He was told the devastating news that he does not have weeks or years but months to live.

After weeks of research we have found that people with stage 4 cancers can beat it or at least last many years if treatment is successful. My brother is willing to fight this to the bitter end, he is now having Chemotherapy with the hope of reducing or even stopping the cancer. The word remission was used by the Oncologist, that is the hope Martin needed.

Many of you may or not be aware that Germany have treatments available that the UK do not offer, we have consulted a leading professor in Germany who has looked at Martin's CT scans. His view is that he can offer Martin treatment following the chemotherapy which targets the cancers directly and can control it and will very possibly prolong his life for years to come.

Martin is a Manager of our local football team he is fit and strong, he has given years to help others and is very popular and loved within the community. He is my twin brother and I cannot bare the thought of him leaving me, Martin's son Tristan or his wife Kelly behind.

We are all praying that he can pull through and that we can send him to Germany for further treatment. It is very difficult to ask others to give especially if you do not know Martin, but believe me Martin is a very special person and if anyone deserves a chance it's Martin. Martin has given so much to others all his life.

Nobody deserves to get this terrible disease and until such time that more research and development is done in the hope to find a cure. We find ourselves asking for more time, begging for more time with our loved ones.

My name is Paul Day, Identical brother to Martin Day. He is part of my soul and we are not ready to say goodbye not for a long time - Thank you for viewing.

    As you can see from the photo, Martin made it to football at the weekend and managed his usual half time rant! We should receive a scan appointment within the next week which will give us a better understanding of how this treatment is going. We will keep you posted and thank you for all your support!
