Help our brother fight Cancer

£23,160 of £40,000 goal

Raised by 583 people in 2 months
Created November 5, 2018
2 months ago our brother Mark was diagnosed with a Stage3 Cancerous Brain Tumor. Currently with this diagnosis, he is undergoing both Radiation and Chemotherapy in hopes of minimizing the tumor. This diagnosis is one that is incurable, but treatable with the right course of action.

Mark is 33 years old with two small children and an amazing life ahead of him. We have started this page in hopes that we can all help to make sure this is true.

After his Chemo and Radio treatment, there is an Immunotherapy treatment in Germany that seems the most promising. After visiting multiple sources, he was referred to a Professor in London who specializes in this type of treatment. The Immunotherapy uses Marks own blood to create a vaccine that can attack the tumor better than any other treatment currently available.

As this treatment is in Germany, there is no insurance or NHS that can cover it, and the cost is £40.000. This is a huge amount for someone with two small children and  daily treatments and hospital visits. Every penny counts and we would love your help and support, no matter how big or small.

Mark is a determined and positive person who desperately wants to see his children grow up. Any donations would be wholeheartedly appreciated.

Any funds raised and not used for the treatment will be used as a fund for his children at the request of a high percentage of the people that have donated.

Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts. We would be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Hello to anyone who has shared,liked or donated to this page thank you very much for all your help..... The love shown by you all has been amazing. Just a quick update on what is going on yesterday I finished my radiotherapy (33 days) and also have finished my chemotherapy for now. I'm due a scan between now and the new year with results due on the 14th Jan. On this day I'm due to carry on with chemo for a year- 5 days on and 23 days off for a year on a higher dose so length of time depends on how my body reacts to it. I also saw one of if not the best oncologist in the country again yesterday and he has told me to keep going with what I'm doing. The diet, the oils frankincense and cbd+thc...he also said that he will contact the hospital in Germany personally to see what would be best for me, be it to start this immunotherapy straight away or wait a couple of months. Again thank you all so much I'll update again soon.... much love to you all each and every one xxxxxxx
