Ed Antrobus Fund

One of my closest friends and their family are currently going through the most awful thing. Collette and Ed have just found out that Ed has got a stage 3, aggressive brain tumour and has been given months, maximum a couple years to live, and this is only as long as his body reacts well to some radiotherapy treatment. The doctors have said that this is the only thing that they can do to prolong his life a little longer to spend time with their 3 young children age 5 and 3 who will soon lose their dad a lot younger than they should. They are unable to get life insurance as he has had to sign saying he has a terminal illness. They have been absolutely amazing throughout me losing my father and I would really like to help them out in any way that I can. I have set up this go fund me to ask for help towards making life a little easier for them all as they go through this awful, awful stage of their life, and hopefully raise enough to take some of the financial strain of a looming funeral off them, as well as helping Collette when Ed is no longer there to bring up their children. Ed was a local electrician so a lot may know him. I know that it is coming up to Christmas, but please if you can spare anything, no matter what it is, I know that the family will be super grateful, as will I.
