Hi everyone we do not have long so time is precious we are trying to raise funds so my dad can have life saving treatment for stage 4 lung cancer. Here is how our lives started falling apart. Five year's ago my dad was rushed to A&E with chest pains upon the NHS giving him an X-Ray they said he had a shadow on his lung its plurecy they said, So my dad was given antibiotics and sent home... Five months ago my dad went to his G.P because of his lower back pain, Up on his examination the doctors said it was sciatica and given pain killers and physio therapy, as time went on his back pain got worse so he ended up paying £285 for his own private MRI as the waiting list was weeks in the NHS. Three months ago my dad had his results from his MRI and it was bad news, The doctor said had cancer in his spine and refured him back to the NHS for a plan to be made and biopsy taken to find out what cancer it was. Few weeks later the results came back and they said they were secondary cancers but need to find the main one, So over the next few months my dad was passed from hospital to hospital as they tried to find the main cause. Now at this point three months had passed and my dad had not started any treatment. Last week i get a phone call to say your dad has been rushed in to Russells hall hospital with sever chest pains he was given pain killers and sent home, So he walked in to his own hospital in Worcester and was given morphine for the pain at this point he clasped in the waiting room and lost all feelings from his waist down. After this happend the next day the doctor said they are going to blue light him to Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham for an emergency operation in his spine so we waited and waited hours went by but no one came, The doctor came back and said they can do the operation atorthopaedic but cant give the after care so she said she was going to ask Coventry and QE if they can do it. Another week passed and no one has said anything else. Four days ago he was given radiotherapy on his chest over a four days. Yesterday 26th December 2018 he had a CT scan and the NHS doctors have said the cancer have broke his spilal cord and is unrepairable and the can't do anything else for him, But just make him comfortable to die they did not even try chemotherapy only radiotherapy. We just cant give up there is a new treatment avalible called Car T cell Theraphy (Immunotherapy) We would like my dad to try it but only avalible private.... We dont have much time we need to start him on treatment asap xxx I have never asked any one for help so please give what you can thanks so much and godbless you all xx
