During this time he has also developed Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis which basically means his liver has been destroyed and life span post diagnosis is not a prolonged one.
Will has lived life to the fullest managing his condition with diet and lifestyle, whilst providing for his family with wife Shylah and their 2 children, Cooper and Maya.
In June last year, Will suffered a severe attack that resulted in him being unable to work or even function in the most basic of life skills, spending weeks mainly lying down in massive amounts of pain.
With the help of a generous Go Fund Me last year he was able to go to Melbourne to undertake specialist medical treatment for his condition. This made some improvement allowing him to function and undertake a desk role 3 days per week with his current employer.
Despite this improvement he has still been suffering nausea, fatigue and varied degrees of pain every single day.
However he held the belief that he has been making a very slow and steady recovery.
Over the last 6 months unfortunately Wills condition has not improved. His body has deteriorated. His weight has dropped significantly. The whole process has nearly broken him but he has hid it well, until I saw him last week.
Now he has just had test results saying that he has reached a life threatening point and drastic action is needed.
Removing his large intestine is the first stage if it comes to this, and I hate to say it, it does not look good for him.
In addition to all this he has invested all of the families available funds into everything they can think of to improve his recovery chances.
Will is now facing the very real possibility of upcoming surgery. Along with this financial stress is the stress required to be able to make some alterations around the house so it is suitable for his recovery time and also for his family.
Cooper (his son) has also been diagnosed with Autism so that is more for Shylah and Will to stress about.
They are a family of 4 living in a 1 bedroom cottage in Parkerville and Wills plan was to build extra living space for the family before his condition was made worse.
They did not want me to do this GoFundMe Page, but I can see they need help and they can't do it alone.
Any help to take the edge off would be GREATLY appreciated,
THANKYOU, MUCH LOVE, AND PEACE.
