Ben's Story

In December 2016 my brother Ben Smith a.k.a. DJ Daredevil rapidly lost the use of his lower body. After suffering months of back pain his feet and legs began to swell, and within a week he could no longer walk. He was admitted to hospital just before Christmas, where he was diagnosed with Burkitt's Lymphoma - a high grade and fast growing cancer. A large tumour was found on his spine, causing nerve damage and paralysing him from the waist down.

Ben is currently undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment at St Bart's hospital in London until around March / April 2017. He stands a good chance of getting back on his feet in the future, however the recovery time is likely to be a matter of years. He currently rents a 4th floor flat in a building with no lift, and so urgently needs to arrange specially adapted accommodation for when he is discharged.

Your funding will contribute towards the many costs Ben now faces: accommodation, disability adaptations, equipment, care and living costs.

All donations large and small are very welcome. Every bit helps.

Thank you!
