About This Fundraiser

Dear Friends, 

My Dad, Stefan Chmielewski has Cancer. Recently in August this year he was diagnosed with cancer followed by an emergency operation, but unfortunately the cancer is very aggressive and it is still spreading fast.

Dad is currently having chemotherapy, but chemotherapy on its own is not enough. For the chemotherapy to be most effective and give the best chance to save his life, the anti-cancer drug HERCEPTIN (Trastuzumab) must be administered once per month at the same time for a year. Fortunately Dad’s cancer is the type of cancer that will respond to HERCEPTIN. This drug is extremely expensive and unfortunately Polish Institution of Health cannot fund this treatment.

Treatment with HERCEPTIN, a relatively new drug, takes one year and costs £21,800!!! This is a serious amount of money. HERCEPTIN is the best chance to save his life. My dad has given so much of himself to me and our family all his life and now it is my turn to help him. I DO NOT WANT my father to die, so I have decided I have to raise this money somehow.

So far with the help of my dear friends my Dad has been able to start his Herceptin treatment, but we have a long way to go yet. With your support and generosity we hope to be able to continue Dad's monlthy treatments over the next year.

Can you, my friends, help me with this mission? Can you contribute anything you can spare to help someone in need. To help him get through this and beat his cancer? Your help will be forever appreciated.



Thank you so much for all your help and support.

    Treatment has started!!

    Thanks to your huge support and gernerosity we have now raised nearly £5000 both online and offline. My Dad has now started his Herceptin treatment and the Polish Institution of Health has accepted payment for the treatment in monthly installments.

    Thank you so much everyone for your help so far, but we still have a long way to go to continue my Dad's treatment. There are no words that can describe how greatful we are for your help. Without your help we would not be where we are today.
