    Story

    Anton is a 32 years old, he was born in St Lucia and came to the UK at the age of 18. Anton married at the age of 26 and worked endlessly as a plumber. He has 3 young children who he adores. Anton was the main breadwinner of the family however he is now unable to work and is fighting for his life. He started getting symptoms about 2 and a half years ago. He became very bloated, had unexplained weight loss, a hard lump in his stomach and blood in his stools. After many diagonistics of constipation, Anton was sadly diagnosed with bowel cancer 18 months ago. He had an operation and Chemotherapy in 2016 which at the time seemed successful as he was assured by the doctors that the cancer had been removed. Unfortunately, the cancer was extremely aggressive and came back with avengance after a short period of 3 months, as well as a new growth in 1 of his lungs.

    After Anton's 1st diagnostic, he changed his diet and removed all the things he loved, in order to give himeslf a fair chance. He gave up his favourite meat and instead lived on an alkaline diet with no sugar. Although extremely difficult for him to do, he did it in the hope that it would help in the eradication of his cancer.

    Unfortuntaly this hasn't been the case. Anton has suffered ongoing pain and discomfort and most recently underwent a colostomy as he suffered a blockage of the colon. On the 10th July 2017 Anton was told by doctors that there is nothing more they can do for him to preserve his young life and as a result referred him to the palliative team, Anton has stage 4 advanced cancer.

    As a family, our last hope is sending him abroad to receive specialist treatment for advanced cancer patients. It's heartbreaking to see the ones you love in pain, but if there's hope we're going to hang on to it. We would like your support to help us raise the funds for the cost. Every penny counts so please help us fight cancer. We Thank you all in advance for your support and lovely messages.

      have been encouraged to pursue a treatment called Tumour Associated Antigen (TAA). TAA is a process which may enable potent targeted immunotherapy. Basically a drug tailored to Antons cancer. The treatment centre is based in Germany and very expensive, based upon this new development we have to raise our money. As always, thank you from the bottom of our heart. X

      Hey supporters, thank you all for your continuous support. It is helping Anton and our family through this challenging, stressful time. Just to further update you (especially to those I dont know personally ), the original plan for Antons treatment has proven not to be suitable due to the type of cancer he has. Anton has a rare mutating cancer which is resistant to chemotherapy; due his unique type our onocology consultant had made recommendation to try a cocktail of drugs which will hopefully attack the tumour; however if this fails we

      I want to take this opportunity to thank everybody that has contributed whether it be financially, emotionally, physically or spiritually. Anton has now returned home where he is recovering from surgery. Physically his pain is managed, Anton is a very proud man and he has to come to terms with a lot of physical changes. Emotionally it is difficult to come to terms with having to question your mortality, at the age 32 but with your generous donations and support you’ve made this journey easier to endure . xx
