As many of you are aware in March this year my husband kev was sadly diagnosed with stomach and oesophagus cancer.
Our lives were turned upside down in April when attending key hole surgery to determine what operation was going to be preformed next we were told that the cancer had spread to other areas and there was nothing they could do!!

After months of sleepless nights, worry and hours on end researching for alternative diets, medicines and treatments, we have finally found a treatment that looks hopeful.

We met with a private doctor in London who has agreed to treat him by using Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.
However unsurprisingly this is not a cheap treatment, it also entails of a minimum of 3 treatments per week in Exeter, then check ups and MRI scans in London every month,which means Kev is now not able to continue to work....

This is a major kick in the balls for us all especially for Kev as he loves his work, but unfortunately he just does not have the strength, energy nor capacity (with attending appointments ) to carry on at this moment in time which will effect us massively financially.

We do not have that kind of money sitting around and as much as its hurts our pride I'm going to listen to other people's advice for a change and ask for help which is without doubt the hardest thing we have ever had to do. 

We all know kev as a happy go lucky cheeky fun loving hard working kinda guy who loves a beer and a good sing song whether it was a keveoke night or not, it is reggae all the way (to some people's annoyance) and he's got more Jam than bloody Hartley's with his Dickensons real deals!! He loves his Bbq parties and entertaining others.

His positive attitude to this situation has been absolutely amazing, he has been so strong, unfortunately due to his health he has lost his wow (walk on water) factor and has had to turn away work for the first time ever, BUT ONLY FOR THE TIME BEING.


Any donation big or small will be very much appreciated, if your not in a position to donate (and believe me I totally understand) then just sharing this on your facebook page or anywhere else you think of, it would be of great help.  

Thank you very much Julie xx
