£1,101raised of £3,000 target by 41 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,101 to help fund Carl Stanley's Cyberknife operation

    Cheshire, United Kingdom
    Funded on Tuesday, 21st November 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    In July 13, Carl Stanley was diagnosed with a benign grade 2 brain tumour, an astrocytoma in his right temporal lobe.
    He underwent surgery to remove as much as possible in August 13 and we hoped that would be the end of it.

    However, this wasn't to be and in August 2015 it returned. He completed 6 weeks of intensive radiotherapy in November/December 2015, only to be told on the 19th July 2017 that the tumour had progressed and it now looked like it was a grade 3 and so now malignant.
    He underwent a second, very risky, craniotomy on the 24th July 2017 and this will be followed by ongoing chemotherapy, but we have been made aware that this will only delay the spread of this terrible life threatening illness.

    We are aware of a pioneering technology (Cyberknife) that is available in this country and could give Carl a fighting chance of long term survival when the chemotherapy drugs are no longer effective.
    However, this treatment is not currently widely available via the NHS and therefore we need to start preparing for his family to pay for this themselves.

    The cost is estimated to be in the region of £100,000 for the five treatments that he could require. With any luck this treatment may not be needed for a number of years but it could be at any time and we need to be prepared for any outcome. If the cost of treatment is less than what is raised then any excess funds will be donated to the Brain Tumour Charity for continued research into this devastating disease.

    Carl is married to Donna and is a loving father to children Olivia and Zac. Olivia has just finished her first year of primary school, with Zac joining her in September 17.

    The staff of Viewpoint are throwing themselves into completing Tough Mudder NW on 9th Sept 17. This is 12 miles long including 20+ obstacles .. Take a look..

    This course features some of the deepest, darkest mud and dense forest in all the UK.
