Five-a-side fundraiser for Dartford cancer patient

PUBLISHED: 10:42 30 October 2012

A five-a-side football fundraiser is being organised to help the family of a cancer sufferer follow him to America for life-saving treatment.

Joe Robson was diagnosed with a brain tumour in July and had an operation to remove it but needs special proton therapy not available in this country.

While the NHS are paying for the three-month course of treatment, Joe, 28, needs to raise the money to take his wife Hayley and two daughters with him.

Goals Dartford, where he worked before falling ill, are putting on a football tournament on November 18th at 11am to finance the family’s travel costs and accommodation.
