This post is not the normal fare for Born Again Swindonian. But I’m sharing a plea for help from a Swindon family because TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE FOR HARRY’S HEALING FUND.

Harry, has the most aggressive type of brain cancer: Grade IV Glioblastoma.

The best way to explain is to share some the text from the families’ go fund me page:

2020 was the year that changed our world; you could say it stopped entirely.

Like many of you reading this now, every so often we’d see or hear of a family pleading for donations that could make it possible to help their loved one.

With sympathy, we’d give what we could. But never imagining that we’d ever experience or understand anything of the horrors they lived through every day. That was, until April 2020, when we were struck with the trauma and instant grief that comes with a life limiting diagnosis: Harry, had the most aggressive type of brain cancer; Grade IV Glioblastoma. 

Whilst families up and down the country stood outside their homes clapping for the NHS, we sat anxious vigils outside a hospital ward. Soon to receive the earth-shattering news: that our precious Harry, had the most aggressive type of brain cancer; Grade IV Glioblastoma.

Even more challenging, he presented a VERY rare case. Instead of being in his brain, it had begun and spread throughout his spine. Thus -due to its location – inoperable.

There’s more background information on the GO FUND me page. But let’s cut to the chase and get to what the family need:

What they need



They’ve learned they are limits to Harry’s treatment options under the NHS.

For them to access further options – experimental though they are – they need to look towards private clinics and trials and THEY’VE GOT TO ACT NOW!

First steps

The family must search specialists far and wide for drug protocols and supplements with potential to make Harry’s treatment more effective.

They also must see if he’s eligible for some of the experimental treatment going on in German clinics involving multi peptide vaccines and immunotherapy.

None of these further options will be possible without the generosity of others. So they plead to you now . Please give what you can so that we can continue to try to keep this extraordinary man in our lives

Imagine their situation!

The family must search specialists far and wide for drug protocols and supplements with potential to make Harry’s treatment more effective.

Harry is at the centre of all their lives. He’s a much loved and adored son. Harry is also a brother, a fiancé and a friend. He’s a grandson, cousin, nephew and all-round valued community member.

There are so many good causes I know. I personally feel like I’m forever putting my hand into my virtual pocket. I understand compassion fatigue. We none of us can help everyone no matter how much we might want to. But if you can – even only a small amount – please do. This really IS a matter of life and death. Time IS running out for Harry.
