The wife of a desperately ill Portglenone man says his last hope of life is pioneering immunotherapy treatment which costs more than £200,000.
The treatment is only available privately and that’s why Natasha Carey is trying to raise funds for her husband, Kevin, who has been told he has only months left after being diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour.
“Two weeks ago we were told Kevin had a three-month life expectancy, even with more chemotherapy,” she said. “We got on the next flight to London, where Kevin had local anaesthetic, brain surgery, which lasted a gruelling five hours.”
Neurosurgeons managed to remove almost 97% of the tumour. But the remaining 3-5% is still aggressive, and it’s a race against the clock now to try to halt its growth. Their only hope at a chance to prolong his life is pioneering immunotherapy in London.

Natasha explained: “Immunotherapy teaches the immune system to find and attack the brain cancer cells, however it is only available privately and will cost £205,000. We are putting all our personal finances, every penny we have, into funding this treatment, plus travelling back and forth to London, but we can’t meet it alone.”
