We are trying to raise money for a cancer patient whose funds have run out. Herb Woodend, the recently retired curator of the Royal Pattern Room in Nottingham, England who was awarded the MBE by Queen Elizabeth in 1995, has colon cancer. British socialized medicine did not give him good and timely treatment, but decided that at 59 he was too old to spend more money on and sent him home to die. His cancer is curable and his friends got him to the Anderson Cancer clinic in Houston Texas. He has completed his chemotherapy and radiation treatments to shrink the tumor, and will go back for surgery when he is stronger in a few months. The problem is his British health insurance will not cover treatments outside England, Herb has sold virtually everything he has to pay for these treatments and all that he has left is his modest home in £ngland That will be next if we cannot raise more money for these hospital bills. 59 and too weak to work is a bad time to be homeless. A fund has been set up to assist him and we need to get the word out about it We often give our Christian charity money to faceless organizations but this is a chance to see all of it go to one individual with no one else getting anything for salaries or administration costs.
