Update #3:  6 months ago.

In January this year I was diagnosed with Grade 4 Glioblastoma Multiforme. I have had Radiotherapy and Chemotherapy . In June this year a portion of a second brain tumour was removed. The standard Chemotherapy used for Brain Cancer has to this date been unsuccessful and the tumour continues to grow. My biggest hurdle at present is the swelling of the brain. An alternative Chemotherapy will help with this swelling and may give me an extra couple of months with my family. There is little or no government subsidy and we have sought help through foundations which have been unsuccessful. I am asking for a small donation from my family and friends to help with the cost of further treatment.

Thank you again to all the wonderful people who have donated. My health is poor but my heart is healed. The support and love shown by so many people is truly unbelievable.
