Tom's Family Fun Day & Dog Show | Sunday 27 August 2017

Tom's Family Fun Day & Dog Show is an upcoming charity event in aid of Tom, a Bristolian recently diagnosed with stage four stomach cancer. It takes place on Sunday 27th August at Vassals Park in Bristol.

Tom has been told by UK doctors and the NHS there's nothing they can do for him here except for palliative chemotherapy and they have given him a short prognosis.

However, he was put in touch with a lady from Hanham who had a similar diagnosis (with more invasive cancer) who sought out life saving treatment in Poland. 

The money raised will go towards Tom getting his care in Poland - first of all his operation and then follow up treatment. His gofundme page has been a great success.

"This is the bare minimum he needs to help towards treatment however so we are still hoping to raise as much as humanly possible to go towards his future care and to cure Tom," says Emily Daly, organiser of the event for this Sunday 27th.

The event will take place at Oldbury Court Estate (Vassals Park) from 10am to 4.30pm. For more info you can keep up to dat via Facebook or by calling 07947813165.
