Henrys' Cancer fund

Dear all.

I am setting up this page on behalf of a dear friend of mine, Henry Cumming. He is a very dear old friend who has been generous and open hearted with so many and also, if I were in a similar situation I hope someone would do the same for me.

Henry, three months ago at the age of 43 was diagnosed with cancer of the bowel, which has spread to his liver. As a result he has been given 2 years to live. Whilst I do not doubt the doctors sincerity, I and more importantly he, want to push way past this prediction so that he can have a longer life and beat this terrible disease.

Sometimes the biology of a cancer will dictate the course of events regardless of the patient's attitude and fighting spirit. These events are often beyond our control. But patients with positive attitudes are better able to cope with disease-related problems and may respond better to therapy. Many physicians have seen how two patients of similar ages and with the same diagnosis, degree of illness and treatment program experience vastly different results. One of the few apparent differences was that one patient was pessimistic and the other optimistic.   This is taken from a paper called Attitude - The Will to Live by Ernest H. Rosenbaum, MD & Isadora R. Rosenbaum, MA

In order to assist Henry in this I am hoping to raise as much money as possible for him for any treatments that may be utilised to assist him in a longer life. Also due to his current situation he has no income coming in to cover the day  to day costs of living and I am hoping also to help with this.

To this aim, I am asking you to donate whatever you can to his fund and should he beat this terrible disease, all remaining funds will be donated to Maggies Centres;  An organisation that gives such excellent care to those suffering from cancer.

So please donate anything you can to Henry’s account and follow his blog on Facebook at “Who’d have thought it”.


Many thanks in advance on my behalf and his and should you have any other ideas on how to help, they would be most welcome.
