Story

In July 2019 my 32 year old husband, Tom, was diagnosed with advanced bile duct cancer having spread across his liver. This horrid disease is usually only seen in the over 65s and those with liver damage. Tom doesn’t drink, has never smoked, and his liver is miraculously otherwise healthy. His only symptom was a pain in his side and after lots of negative tests we got the shocking news that we were totally unprepared for. Tom has been given a life expectancy of 6-9 months. Our son was 6 months old at the time.

A recent scan showed that the cancer was stable but chemotherapy is not shrinking the tumours. As we continue through our cancer journey a treatment known as SIRT may be able to help him but it is not routinely funded on the NHS. We are fundraising in the hope that Tom will be well enough to undertake this treatment to at least give us more time as a family.

If Tom survives then any money remaining money will be dontated to Maggies. If the worse happens then it’ll be used to help raise our son.

Thank you for taking the time to read our story and thank you if you donate to help us.

    Scans completed in April have shown that although my cancer is classed as stable, the tumours have grown. We have been fundraising for SIRT, however due to Covid-19, our plans have changed. The treatment is now only available in London with an increased cost of £20,000. The treatment could provide me with much needed time with my family and could even lead to life saving surgery. If you could help by donating and/or sharing my story, we would so grateful. Thank you so much for your continued support.

    We are so thankful for the support we have received so far and cannot express our gratitude. Tom has had a scan which showed the cancer is currently stable and he is continuing with more chemotherapy. The next step will be private treatment around April to give Tom the best chance going forwards. Thank you for your continued support and kind words.
