    Story

    Hi!
    Many of you will know me, and my partner Pixie already, but for those of you who don’t, but are reading this because someone we love has passed this on to you in the hope that you can help, here’s our story. Please read it, and if you can do anything to help us, we’d be very grateful indeed.
    I am an ambulance driver and Pixie my partner is a single mother of a super, bouncy three year old boy. We met at an event, fell in love and moved in together in Feb 2016. We started saving in the hope that we could get married next year.
    Things haven’t worked out quite as planned for us. This time last year I discovered a large lump in my groin. I went to my doctor and have been in agony for months while doctors have tried to find out what was wrong. All the tests were inconclusive, although everyone agreed that there was something wrong. It was just a question of what?
    In October a 3rd biopsy finally gave me the diagnosis I was dreading. I have testicular cancer.
    The consultant is confident that he can treat the cancer, but the process is not going to be pleasant. I will have surgery in the next few weeks, and will be undergoing chemotherapy after that.
    Pixie and I have talked about what this will mean for us, and it has made us surer than ever of our love for each other. We will be there for each other come what may, but it has made us realize that now, more than ever, we want to be man and wife and make our vows to each other before everyone we love. We are a team, but now we want to be a family in every sense of the word.

    We would dearly love to bring our wedding forward and want a simple, civil ceremony with a handful of our loved ones and family around us, but even that is beyond us at the moment.
    Most people have a wedding list when they get married. We don’t need another toaster or a set of fish knives, but we do need some help raising £1000.00 so that we can make our dreams come true. If you can help us in any way, it would mean the world to us.
