Michael Brake Cancer Treatment

$30,375 of $200,000 goal

Raised by 248 people in 17 months
My dear friend Michael was on holiday in Canada visiting his wife, Leanne's parents during the September/October holiday. A few days into the trip he noticed he was turning yellow (jaundice). He went to the doctor and was immediately admitted to hospital where a few days later was told to head back to Sydney as there was a mass that was found and it was most likely cancer.

Once in Australia, Michael was diagnosed with Stage 3 Cholangiocarcinoma. Sadly, they were not able to remove the tumor. As this cancer is rare, treatment options are minimal and not very receptive to these options.

Michael has searched worldwide for treatment options. The Hallwang clinic in Germany is one of the best possible chances for beating this type of cancer. The treatment will assess his unique cancer and has a multi-modal approach including:
*State-of-the-art diagnostics (incl. PET/CT/MRI/MR-PET imaging, chemosensitivity testing, immune profiling, Next Generation Sequencing and TAA-Screening, among others)
*Individualized treatment options with access to cutting-edge antibody treatments, tumour vaccines, and other immunotherapies
*Natural supplements and treatments including detox infusions, high-dose vitamin-C, whole body hyperthermia.

Unfortunately, treatment at the Hallwang Clinic is very expensive, mainly due to the cost of the drugs involved. The cost of treatment will be close to $200,000.

Please help us raise these funds as quickly as possible as Michael time is critical. They have only been married two years and I would love to see them share a lifetime together. Michael is an exceptional man whom I love dearly and deserves this chance. He is always there for everybody else. He is a very humble man and would not consider asking for help, so I am asking on his behalf.

I cannot put into words how grateful we will all be for any donations, as it is difficult to express how much the possibility of beating this means to Leanne and Michael.
Thank you in advance for your generosity and support.

The past few weeks have been tough, yet Michael has met the challenge head on. Your kindness and generosity provides him with strength and the medicine he needs to fight this terrible disease.

Donating the proceeds of one coffee a day is all it takes help fight this cancer.

Thanks
Virginia
