After a full life of being selfless and caring for others, Adam now needs help for himself.
Diagnosed with stage 4 of an extremely rare and aggressive type of sarcoma cancer, with only around 200 cases recorded since it was first described, the available treatment is limited. Despite best efforts, sadly, his life is coming to an end.
Ever so grateful to NHS staff, having spent over 1000 hours in the hospital over the last 18 months, they have been amazing and are the only reason why Adam still has the chance to ask you for help making the time he has left something to live for.
The last 19 months have definitely been a hard journey, through which Adam soldiered on and kept positive, for the sake of his friends and family.
He has been on the harshest and most intensive chemotherapy available, as well as living through very extensive surgery, which left him with a huge 40 stitches long scar on his stomach and permanently affects his everyday life. After this, he once more battled through chemotherapy, which gave him hope for a 'normal' life! Sadly, it has not worked.
In spite of this, Adam heads once more into the fight with cancer, again undergoing strong chemotherapy. This will not save his life, but it could give him more time to spend with his loved ones.
Cancer has impacted not only his physical and mental health but also proved to be financially draining. Being on chemotherapy, attending countless scans, blood tests, doctors visits, and struggling with the unpredictable side effects has made it impossible to work despite best efforts.
The upcoming months may be the last time Adam can ride his motorbike, go on a short holiday and enjoy what remains of his life. He has already exceeded the prognosis time, so every day is very precious. Unfortunately, money is tight. This limits his opportunities to enjoy the time he has left and breaks his spirit more than all that came before.
Any amount you can offer will help. There is so much he would like to do and see. Many places he would like to visit. In these following months, please help Adam experience his life to the fullest. No matter how long he has to do so.
