    Fresh case in yesterday.

    Serving soldier at the very end of a difficult Afgan tour noticed his weight loss was considerably more than his oppos.

    He went to the med centre and upon further investigation he received the worst news, Cancer and terminal.

    Obviously he on leave and under treatment to extend his life as much as possible, the blokes got two very very young children and a devoted and loving wife.

    I need to get him away in the next week.

    Obviously, July the flights aren't cheap. I've sorted accomodation, squarde away med cover and medication administration etc, I need a rally round to cover flights etc.

    Target is set at £786.34 I know its a tall one, but this bloke will be getting a holiday and some memories for his family.

    PLease dig deep people, I'#ve spoken to him at length, typical good egg, accepting whats coming his way in terms of his illness, hence me wanting to get him away before it grips him further.
