His Story:

Not long before Christmas of 2018, Karl got diagnosed with stage 4 Lung cancer. One week later we were all told by the Doctors he only has a few months left, We are all so heartbroken with the time frame it's hard to get our heads around.

My siblings and myself came up with the idea to make this page to help Karl raise money to help with the expensive medical costs and take the financial stress off Karl, it's heartbreaking for us to hear and the last thing he should be worrying about is money as he has been through hell being a chronic pain sufferer for years struggling.

Time is precious for the 3 younger kids the rest of us are adults with family's with kids, we just want Karl to focus on spending his time with the younger kids with what time he has left.

Any help is much appreciated xxx

Thank you all so much for the donations and the support you have given me thus far through my cancer journey.

I have had a tough battle with this cancer and struggled so hard with it at times.

Through the physical and mental pain has been horrendous and still here I am, and exist for some important purpose. Thank you again for all the support, you all have given me hope and extended my life through your donations, no matter what happens to me from here on, I will always cheeriest you all in my heart.

My battle continues, what the the future holds for me now is uncertain but what is certain is that my faith is the only thing now that I can go by because that's all I have left and I hope that the creator lets me live through the world tribulations to see my youngest son through to his 18th birthday and I have both physical and spiritual strength to endure the trials ahead.
