Three months ago, my brother Harvey became the happiest man in the world; by becoming a father to his son. He’d moved into his new home, ready to take on the next chapter of his life. One week ago, Harvey was given the news that he has 6 months to live.
Harvey has been diagnosed with a Diffused Midline Glioma H3K27M - an incurable and the most aggressive brain cancer. The doctors in the UK cannot remove the tumour and can only offer an intense 6 week course of radiotherapy.
I want to give my brother the best chance of exceeding the 6 month mark and to give him the opportunity to celebrate his sons 1st birthday, spend quality time with his wife and family. At 43 years old, he still deserves a shot at living a long healthy life and to be with us as long as possible.
There is an innovative new immunotherapy that Harvey can have, following his radiotherapy, with proven statistics and extended survival results - this treatment is recommended by doctors here but, unfortunately is not available in this country.
I have set up this page to raise the funds required to get Harvey this treatment in Germany to prolong his life, to make memories and enjoy his new family. He deserves to get old, he deserves to raise his son and he deserves to be with his family.
I never thought our family would be in this situation, and I’d never wish this on anyone. But, If I can give my brother any chance available to stay with us for as long as possible, I really need your help to achieve this.
Please support where you can and please keep my brother in your prayers.
