‘The best possible news’

DAVID Gibbs, from Staple Hill, who underwent a new brain cancer treatment in Germany following a £160,000 fundraising campaign, has said his tumour is no longer visible.

“Yes, the most brilliant news but with the caveat that the scan (better than anything available in the UK), still can’t see everything, so there may be microscopic cancer cells hiding.

“But the best news we could possibly hope for!” he said.

David, 39, who is married with a young daughter, had treatment after family, friends and strangers supported Dave’s Brain Fund, set up by his sister.

He added; “We don’t know what the next steps are, we would love there to be a test that could tell us it is gone.

For now we plan to continue treatment and monitoring in Germany. A massive thank you to everyone who has helped us along the way.”
