Family plea for help for terminally ill father's treatment
A FATHER-of-two who has been diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour has been offered a glimmer of hope that could save his life – but he needs Islanders' help.
Rafal Tabor (40) has an appointment at a clinic in Germany that offers pioneering proton therapy, which aims to use high-energy particles to kill cancer cells, but the treatment will cost up to £20,000 and could take two months.
His wife Monika, and several of their closest friends, are now asking Islanders to donate money for a treatment which could help save his life.
Mr Tabor, a builder, was healthy and active until four weeks ago. He visited his GP after a sudden bout of numbness in his right hand and leg. The GP signed him off work but days later his condition deteriorated and doctors at the Hospital diagnosed him with an aggressive glioma.
He was referred to experts in Southampton who said they could operate but warned that if they did he would be unlikely to walk or talk again.
