Help Chris Carberry get his lifesaving treatment

10 months ago By Steven Hughes

The 21 year old was recently diagnosed with a rare bone cancer for a third time

The story of 21 year old Chris Carberry is a heartbreaking one. He was initially diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer called oestosarcoma in December 2015.
Unfortunately, treatments were not successful and he had his leg removed in order to undergo surgery to remove the tumours.
But seven months later, the cancer had come back again in his lungs and a third of his lung had to be removed to get to the tumour.
Throughout the ordeal, he never lost his positive attitude and remained jovial, making light of his troubles, especially the surgeries.
In the present day, he was rediagnosed with oestosarcoma for a third time in October and the only treatment available is not on the NHS and he must go abroad. To do this, he needs to raise £200,000 to take part in these clinical trials.
You can help him and his family by donating to his cause via this link.
