Hi,

we're looking for support through donations, for a much loved Son, Father, Granddad, Partner, Brother, Uncle, In-law, friend and neighbour Tom.

Tom with his Dad, Mum and partner Joan 1 week before results.

 

During the past year he noticed he was losing weight and other health problems seemed to be arising, though he struggled some days he carried on as normal going to work and about his life with his family, earlier this year he went to see his GP who referred him for tests. The following months a number of tests were carried out before we finally had some results.

In June 2014 he was diagnosed with stomach cancer which they said had moved into his spine, the bottom line is its terminal. They told him he is looking at between 3 and 6 months to live, but this could be stretched to between12 to 18 months if he takes the option of chemotherapy.

The following week he had his first of 4 sessions of chemotherapy.

More than ever, family time means everything to us and every moment we get to share with him is a blessing.

When you think of your future how many of us think in terms of weeks or months, this is something we now have to do regarding Toms future, and so we turn to you for support and donations so as to be able to fulfil 1 wish or a bucket list item shall we say to afford him and his partner, children and grandchildren one last happy holiday together.

As you will understand nobody wants to lose him, so we will also continue to fight. We have researched what little information we can find into alternative treatments that are out there or anything that will give us more time with him as a family.

Cannabis oil is one treatment which is written about the most and with the best success stories, especially for the treatment of stomach cancer.

Fucoidan is another treatment, this is used in Japan who report very low rates of stomach cancer. It has been proven to contain anti-cancer properties and relieves harmful chemotherapy and radiation side effects.

These alternative treatments do not come cheap, though we cant put a price on how much his life means to us, funds are still limited.

We would greatly appreciate any comments or experiences on the above treatments whether they have helped or not.

As mentioned previously we have a deadline that can't be moved (though we wish it could) so we are only putting this on for a short period of time. Please help us if you can.

If for any reason you cant or just don't want to donate to our cause could you please share the link with others anyway you can
