    Steve Green's Story.

    Living with an aggressive grade 4 INCURABLE brain tumour!

    I'm 33 and I've been told I only have months to live, please help me to gain more time to make memories with my precious wife and children.

    It took me quite a while to even start this page, with the recent news we've had with regards to my health has really knocked me back. It has done the same to the family my beautiful wife and our two children. The eldest, daughter(8) and our son (5). It has put life into perspective for all of us.

    We've had a pretty bad few years. But at the same time it's been the most memorable, more for good than bad. We've had the best day ever, getting married and having a family holiday that no one could forget. It all started with work going really well, life was going well and in the right direction. Then out of nowhere we were caught out by a life changing event which gave us a slap in the face.

    It started with a seizure at work. This lead to a follow up scan then following appointment which showed the horrible truth that I had a grade 2 brain tumour. The first appointment was a blur, then came the growth of the tumour with operations and subsequent radiation therapy. Now with the horrible journey of chemotherapy, which I'm told could give me a little more precious time with family and friends. With the tumour growth now up to grade 4 the time span runs on for the next few months.

    Since being diagnosed three years ago life has been one big roller coaster, full of ups and downs. As a family we have tried to carry on as normal and as best we can, keeping this close to home with only friends and family knowing the facts more to protect our children than anything, now we have been faced with the latest news as a family we have decided to share this with everyone we can as we are still holding on to a little hope! Through endless amounts of research between ourselves, family and friends we have come across a treatment called IMMUNOTHERAPY which has had amazing results but unfortunately comes at a huge price and not available on the NHS or even in this country. So once again we go up and back down.

    The treatment is available at the HALLWANG PRIVATE ONCOLOGY CLINIC in Germany. This treatment can prolong lives considerably and has even put some cancers previously diagnosed and incurable like mine into complete remission. As we face the impossible task of funding the treatment we are pleading for help to raise the necessary funds. We have now been informed that the treatment of immunotherapy comes at a costly £70,000. Any donations no matter how big or small will be appreciated beyond words!

    So, now is the time to ask the biggest question that I have ever had to ask.

    I need your help. As a family, friend, colleague, and even stranger. I need your help and even down to a donation of a pound I will appreciate that as much as i do several pounds!

    Please respect our wishes in doing the best we can to protect our two small children's ears. Life is tough enough for them seeing their daddy unwell.

    A big thank you for reading my story!

    P.S. If you have any stories, or information that you may think might be of use or helpful please get in touch.

      Afternoon, sorry for the delay in update unfortunately we've had a couple of unexpected hospital visits due to seizures and infections, so been a little challenging for the whole family. I'm unable to go on with anything uplifting from that unfortunately, we've been given my recent scan result which show the chemotherapy has not worked this time round.

      Next question of course was where do we go from here? With help and guidance from my nurology consultant, surgeon, and a great team of highly experianced Doctors we've come to a holt, where immunotherapy, proton beam and all treatments being trialed abroad and in private clinics, when it comes to the type of tumors I have they remain incurable! This comes down to the area the tumours sit at and their sizes and shapes.

      So sadly it's now a fight to make memories and treasure the time with sam and the children. I cannot thank everybody enough for their help and support we've received but I am devestated to say the funds raised on our just giving page will not be able to be used on treatment.
