Life Saving Immunotherapy Treatment

At the age of 23, I was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic neuroendocrine cancer that had spread from my pancreas to my liver, lungs and peritoneum. 

Now at 26 we have hit a bump in the road that is too great for us to overcome on our own. Chemotherapy is not going to prolong my life for much longer and I have been told that my last hope rests on funding my own immunotherapy treatment, which is very expensive. 

Immunotherapy is currently not available on the NHS for pancreatic neuroendocrine cancer, however it is excelling in treating melanoma, lung cancer and is coming on leaps and bounds in many others too. 
There are many success stories, even with the bleakest of prognosis, seeing ‘incurable’ cancers go in to complete remission. 
"Immunology is saving lives. Our groundbreaking research using the body’s immune system to eradicate cancer is so powerful it can last a lifetime. A lifetime that can be so much longer." Taken from Southampton's Centre for Cancer Immunology website. 

Pancreatic NET is a rare form of cancer and I have an aggressive, rare form of a rare cancer that pushes all the boundaries.
I have already proven many medical professionals wrong and I want to continue to do that. 
I want to make my ‘incurable’ cancer curable and I am so determined to prove them wrong. 
Not only for myself but for so many others faced with a poor prognosis. 

I have already endured 5 different types of chemo, two major operations and radiotherapy over the past 3 years and although partly successful at the time, the cancer doesn’t give in. Immunotherapy is a totally different way of treating cancer, it teaches the body to recognise the cancer cells and to destroy them using my own immune cells. 

The bottom line is I don’t want to die. I have so many things to live for and so many things I want to experience. I only got married three weeks ago and I’m not ready to leave this world just yet.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. Please help us by sharing my story and donating if you can to help fund my life saving treatment - every penny is more than I would expect.

If for what ever reason the money raised can’t be used for my treatment, we will be donating to our charities which are, PLANETS who support  pancreatic, liver, colorectal, oesophageal, stomach and neuroendocrine cancer by funding innovative treatments and research, the UK’s first Centre for Cancer Immunology who are funding groundbreaking studies in to new treatments, CLIC Sargent and Teenage Cancer Trust.

It has been a little while since we last posted an update, so I wanted to send everyone some news following a recent scan and the current plan.
Adam has now had 4 rounds of chemotherapy and his latest scan results on Friday showed that the treatment has continued to successfully stabilise the disease with a slight decrease in his liver. Round 5 is tomorrow, with the last on the 12th November. We have been told by Adams oncology team at Southampton General that the immunotherapy specialists will now plan and schedule the start of Adams immunotherapy treatment, a combination of two drugs, to start sometime in weeks following the end of chemo.

We are always reminded and forever grateful that this next stage would have not been possible if it wasn’t for the countless donations that we have received to allow Adam to have another chance.

We will post another update following our next appointment with Adams immunotherapy team.

As always, thank you to everyone for your support and wishes.

Adam and I wanted to share a quick update with you regarding his treatment.
As you may know, Adam is currently on a chemotherapy, one which he has had before, to hopefully stabilise the disease in his liver whilst the team at Southampton General Hospital sequence the biopsy samples recently taken from Adams liver. This is in hope to shrink the disease in order to best prepare him for immunotherapy.
We have an appointment with Adams team on Thursday with both the oncologists and immunotherapy specialists and we can’t wait to tell them how successful our campaign has been so far! We are also hoping to find out more about the plan in place for the next few months however timings will likely depend on Adams response to the current chemo.
Everyone’s kindness and generosity continues to blow us away.

Love from
Adam and Georgia xx

We are absolutely overwhelmed by the response we’ve had since we first shared this page on Wednesday evening. In 4 days we are only £400 away from £40,000. We never expected to receive such an amazing response. Thank you so much to every single person who has donated, shared the story and sent messages of encouragement and kindness to us.
Love from
Adam and Georgia xx
