Alan's Life Saving Cancer Treatment

£8,438 of £150,000 goal

Raised by 176 people in 12 months
Dear Friends, Thank you for visiting my Go Fund Me page. I met my husband Alan when he was just 15. He's now 46 and we have three children, two boys and a girl. Our middle child Jake has ADHD, Autism Spectrum and Eplilepsy. Our youngest Chloe is six years old. Alan is a real animal lover. We've got three rescue dogs and have had cats, rabbits, fish, guinea pigs, hamsters and rats. He has rescued many injured birds - even a swan once. He's a real family man and has always worked hard for his family. He's a wonderful and devoted husband. In June 2016 I noticed a lump in his neck. We weren't too worried as he is generally strong, fit and healthy and there were no other symptoms. But a biopsy revealed Lung Cancer stage 4 - it had spread to his lymph nodes, chest and adrenal gland. We were told the cancer was inoperable and the only option was for palliative treatment. He endured a gruelling double dose of chemotherapy. He could only have four rounds. Then started on maintenance chemotherapy but the tumours were growing. Just before Christmas we got the devastating news it had spread to his brain. He was moved to a hospice and his condition got worse. He was barely awake and couldn't eat and the doctors said it was his last few days and to prepare the children. But then something incredible happened. On our daughters sixth birthday, a few days before Christmas Day, he started to rally. He sat up, got out of bed, pulled on some clothes and told the shocked doctors that he wanted to go home. He started steroids and got better each day. He was soon well enough to start more treatment again. He had radiotherapy and will have more chemotherapy. His fight has returned and he is determined to beat his illness, but his options are running out fast. In Germany there is a special cancer care clinic called Hallwang that provides immunology therapy and we've been told this our best - and last - chance. Unfortunately this life-changing treatment is not cheap and isn't available on the NHS. It costs almost £15,000 to have the first consultation and tissue analysis, and a full round of treatment costs around £150,000. We don't have this. Anything you can give, however small, will make a huge difference to us. Please help him continue his fight and give our children the father they love. I will post regular photos and updates to let you know how things are going. Much Love Trina xxxx

It is with deepest sadness that I need to inform you that Alan passed away early hours today. He has been in and out of hospital over the past few weeks and has battled right to the very end. This has been the worst time in our lives but Alan has been such an inspiration and has shown incredible strength. Our lives will never be the same without him. Alan and us all were incredibly overwhelmed by everyone's support and generosity. We would like to thank each and everyone of you who donated and more importantly believed and gave us the strength to keep going. We would like to offer your donations back to you and we need your details to do this. Please message me for me to do this. ❤️❤️❤️
