Nicky Holloway's Cancer Treatment

£43,235 of £45,000 goal

Raised by 1,304 people in 16 months

Completely out of the blue I got diagnosed in March with Prostate Cancer, I tripped over a paving stone in Spain and cracked a rib otherwise I may never have known.

The last six months having had scans, biopsies, blood tests, sleepless nights and the odd finger up the bum after a lot of research, it would appear my best option is Proton Beam Therapy abroad as the only thing available in the UK/NHS is almost guaranteed incontinence for a year and here is the biggie it's goodbye to erections without injecting my wedding tackle or using some weird pump thing, bit of a buzz kill to say the least, proper game over.

I am in no way NHS bashing but sadly when it comes to the big C we are way behind the rest of Europe and I have finally found a place in the Czech Republic that has a 97% success rate and has agreed to treat me. I went to Prague last week to have a look around to be sure it was as good as reports said. It was and unsurprisingly it's not cheap, the NHS have just bought two of the machines for £25 million, however they will not be up and running for a few years, time which I really don't have as I'm pushing my luck as it is.

Unfortunately I no longer have that kind of money sitting around so as much as it hurts my pride I'm going to have to listen to other peoples advice for a change and ask for help which is without doubt the hardest thing I have ever had to do but needs must, as they say.

Any donation big or small will be much appreciated if you are not in a position to donate for any reason and believe me I've had plenty of times over the years when my card has been maxed out then just sharing this on your facebook page or anywhere else for that matter will help.

I'm just trying to stay alive long enough to continue to annoy you all with my bad jokes, rubbish dress sense, arrogance and appalling taste in music and I'm pretty sure I have kept many of you up all night over the years so please help a brother out and keep me up, so to speak. 

I really need your help people I did not see this one coming, I can promise you one thing though and that is the mother of all thank you parties once it is all taken care off.

Thought it only right I stuck my head above the pulpit once again as it my birthday today something that this time last year I feared I may never see so once again thanks to everyone helped me get the treatment I needed…has it worked?

Well, that’s something I’m not going to really know until early next year when I finally stop taking the hormone tablets, however, I’ve no reason to think that it hasn’t worked as it everything feels much better downstairs and seem to all be in working order so to speak and I’ve got a good feeling about it all.

I’ve even started going out again and got some good gigs coming up, even had a cheeky week in Ibiza which was nice so slowly getting my life back on track bit by bit.

Thanks, everyone and remember it’s rude to ask how old I am today, let’s just say I’m in my 50s and leave it at that. Hopefully, see a lot of you over the summer and I will probably try and kiss you or at least give you a man hug as that's what I do when I'm happy : ) x

Thought it was about time I crawled out of my shell/self-imposed exile and update you wonderful people I’ve been lying low watching box sets as to be honest I seem to be really tired all the time and need to be near a toilet 24/7 I’ve been this is the norm and all part of my body’s repair processes, I thought it was all a little bit too good to be true the first week I was running around like an idiot abroad.
Anyway, got another ten days left before I return home to another not compulsory but highly recommended year of hormone tablets in order to proper send it packing which ain’t great but I would be a fool to ignore the advice then hopefully I should be all mended, at least for the near future anyway Proton treatment for prostate has a 97% success rate way better than surgery so I’m pretty confident I’ve done the right thing thanks to you lot.

I started to DJ in 1980 thirty-eight years ago and most weekends since have had gigs with a few blips here and there so not playing out properly the last seven months has been a lonely place. As you can Imagine I’m proper looking forward to starting playing out again from beginning of March starting off playing Vinyl for the first time on ages at the Macbeth on March 4th last time we done it it was fab so look out for Vinyl Buyers club posts.

Dear wonderful donators or as i like to call you my angels (pass the sick bag i know) and other friends if you could give this update one last “share “ for me on facebook it would really count as I will be coming home to a mini mountain of debt so if anyone who hasn’t already donated to my gofundme page may see it will be much appreciated and off course everyone will be sent a promo copy of a great new Chill Out album by Beats Workin “Pressure Makes Diamonds” that will be released this summer.

Once again thanks everyone, please share one last time if you can, I will be your best friend I promise. Now where is that toilet again ?
