Man With 10 Brain Tumors Gets Cancer Treatment Paid By Good Samaritan

Inspired - Individuals

Photo by Sun StarThe family of a British man with 10 brain tumours say their prayers have been answered after a generous stranger agreed to pay for a life-prolonging drug denied to him by insurance.

The father of two young children, who suffers from a rare form of cancer, believed that Avastin, a ‘wonder-drug’ which costs £33,500 per year, was his only hope.

He and his wife launched a fundraising drive that luckily caught the ear of a property developer who decided to donate the entire sum himself.

Good Samaritan Kenny Vickers, 34, has an infant son fighting for his life after being born prematurely, and was touched by a report of Glen Cunningham's plight in a local newspaper.
