Help fight asbestos lung cancer

8 months ago, David was diagnosed with Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma (lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure); a terminal cancer that usually affects people in  ‌their 70s, has hit my lovely man at 37 - 2 weeks after his 37th birthday, he was given 12 months to live.

MPM is a rare and aggressive cancer, and David's is growing fast - we need to access immunotherapy drugs, called keytruda, that have displayed amazing results for tumour reduction and quality of life. It comes at an enormous cost though - with a young family and currently zero income, we are facing up to $13000 every 3 weeks; which is simply unobtainable without becoming homeless.

If anyone is in a position to help, it would be more appreciated than you could possibly imagine; as much as I detest asking for handouts, my kids need their daddy, I need my husband, and he needs these drugs.

Thank you in advance #cancersucks
