A Wickford man whose father has been denied lifesaving cancer treatment on the NHS is raising money by running a seven kilometre Nuclear race, titled ‘Nuking Cancer’.
28 year old Reece Williams has set up a just giving page to help raise £10,000 for his father who is a cancer sufferer.
Reece told The Enquirer: “In 2011 my father found a lump on his neck that turned out to be a cancerous tumour and they discovered that he had cancer in his bowel as well. It reached his lymph nodes and he had radiotherapy.
“Now sadly they have found a golf ball size tumour in his liver and the scans show a blood clot in his lungs.
“The treatment he requires is lutetium and that is very expensive. It costs £10,000 a round and my father needs four rounds of treatment. This treatment is too expensive for the NHS.”
As a result, Reece has taken on the challenge himself with his two sisters to help raise the money for his father’s treatment.
“I’m going to be running a 7 kilometre nuclear race that is full of obstacles and mud! It’s definitely a challenge!”
Reece is looking for as many sponsors as he can get to help him raise the money for his father’s life saving treatment.
