Andy Jones (Chairman) Hawkesbury BC
In December 2016, Andy received the devastating news that he had a cancerous and aggressive brain tumour, a Glioblastoma Multiforme, the most common high grade primary brain tumour in adults.
Having undergone brain surgery, six weeks of radiotherapy and six months of the "gold standard" chemotherapy, his tumour, unfortunately showed subtle signs of progression. Since then, Andy has switched to a different chemotherapy but the tumour has continued to grow.
Whilst the NHS have been nothing but amazing, the treatment offered just isn't working so now he needs to consider therapies and drugs that are available privately.
Andy is having his third surgery on 29th December to remove as much of the tumour as his neuro surgeon can physically see and then he will need to hit it using treatment and therapy which is not available on the NHS but has been recommended via a second opinion.
The highest costing treatment is "Optune Therapy" which will involve Andy wearing 4 adhesive patches on his head for upto 22 hours a day to deliver therapy direct to the tumour area. This is a costly treatment and will also require monthly visits to London for maintenance, MRI's etc. Whilst it is not curative, we hope it will keep him here a lot longer.

In the event that Andy can't use the money raised, it will be donated to The Brain Tumour Charity for their essential research.
