Daniel Briscoe was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer on July 21st 2017. Born and raised in Bramhope, Leeds before recently moving to Skipton, Daniel faces the challenge of raising £15,000 in order to undergo life-saving treatment, which is currently unavailable on the NHS. For the sake of his two children, Daniel has set up a JustGiving page in order to raise funds for the much-needed treatment.
In a touching message, Daniel explains how much your support would mean to him and his family.
“Don’t know what to say, thank you all so much for donating and sharing.
“It’s unbelievable to me to see this working, it’s also given me a new found strength to fight even harder.
“Everyday gets a step closer to hopefully beating this and becoming one of the lucky ones!”
“For those of you who don’t know about pancreatic cancer, it has the lowest survival rate of all cancers with only around five per cent of those diagnosed surviving for five years.
“I am only 41 years old. I have a loving wife and two sons aged four and six who I desperately want to see grow up and be a part of their lives.
“I had plans for a future with my family, a future where we would go camping and climbing mountains and have lightsaber fights in the park and I would teach them important ‘dad’ lessons like the rules of rugby and how to shave
“I’m not ready to give up on that future, it is a future worth fighting for.”
He said: “It’s a disease that is fast becoming one of the western hemisphere’s biggest killers.
“It’s so hard to detect early enough to save those who suffer from it.”
If you can afford to support Daniel, donations of any size could be vital in helping to ensure that two young children get to grow up with a father.
