Stephen is a 26 year old musician. He was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma in February 2018. He has undergone six different chemo therapies since then but none have been successful. His Consultants have concluded that he is now in a position where his only hope of reducing the cancer enough to be able to receive a life saving stem cell transplant is to treat him with a new type of drug called a PD1 blocker.
Unfortunatey, the cost of the drug is above the NHS funding threshold. It is not therefore available on prescription and the Consultants have told us that we will need to raise the funds required to purchase the treatment that Stephen needs to give him the real prospect of becoming well again.
We know Stephen will not mean quite the same to you as he does to us, he is an amazing young man and musician and we are desperate to get him back to full strength to enable him to achieve his potential in life, both as a person and musician. He has so much he wants so achieve and can't wait to get on with it! We will be forever grateful for any support you are able to give.
