Craig's fight against cancer

Hello my name is Craig Brown i am 45 years old.

At the end of 2016 I started having difficulty eating and drinking. after numerous visits to the doctors I was sent for a camera down my throat and into my stomach. I was told I had acid reflux and sent home with tablets.

By february 2017 I could not eat or drink anything and ended up in hospital after collapsing. After having a tube fitted to get food into me I had more tests which revealed I had Oesophageal cancer. I could not believe what I was hearing, I was told this kind of cancer Squamous cell carcinoma usually affects people in their late 60's and was rare for someone my age.

I was determined to fight it every step of the way and was told I could have chemotherapy then an operation to remove the tumour. Before this could be done I had to have a PET scan then an MRI, this revealed a lesion on my pelvis. I then had to have a biopsy and my worst fears were confirmed the cancer had spread to my pelvis.

On 24.th May 2017 the oncologist told me that they could not cure me now it had spread, the only thing they could do was chemotherapy and possible radiotherapy but this would only buy me time. If the treatment works i will have 12 months to live if it doesn't i will only have 6 months. I started a course of chemotherapy in May 2017.

My world just fell apart I have a beautiful daughter who im never going to see grow up which breaks my heart.

I started to do some research and found hundreds of cases of people in my situation who took control and started an alternative treatment. There is lots of evidence in support of high dose IV vitamin C along with several other vitamins given in high doses can kill cancer cells and boost the bodys immune system which fights the cancer. Also juicing organic fruit and vegtables and putting them through my feeding tube as i still cant eat will help boost my own immune system.

I have found so many people who have been told there is no hope but are still alive today years later by following this system.

The vitamin C  IV and  B17 costs £450 a week that's 3 times split over 1 week. Travel to Bradford over 1 half hours away each way 3 times a week with fuel cost so high and as i can no longer work there is no way I can afford this all the money i had has gone on making it through the last 6 months with paying mortgage and bills. The treatment could take 3 months up to a year but everyone is different . 

I only hope that I can raise the money so that I have a chance of seeing my daughter grow up.

Thank you for taking the time to read my story.
