My story

[p]A few weeks before Christmas we got news no one wants to hear, Jim was taken to hospital having had a seizure he was diagnosed as having a brain tumour. The doctors quickly decided that they would operate and follow it up with radio therapy and chemotherapy. This was Jim's family's reaction[/p][p][i] In early December, our dad, Jim, was diagnosed with a brain tumour.[/i][/p][p][i] He is having an operation so is having to have his head shaved. To support him, we are also going to have our hair cut really short! Cameron is going for a Grade 1 all over and Ewan, a grade 2 all over (because his school's policy is that grade 2 is the shortest pupils are allowed).[/i][/p][p][i] We would like to support the Wessex Neurological Centre at Southampton General Hospital as they are treating our dad and would really appreciate any support you can give us.[/i][/p][p]As Jim's friends, we wanted to show our love and support for Jim and so 7 of us have decided to join Jim's boys and "Trim for Jim". [/p][p]Nick, David, Craig, Ross, Simon, Steve & Stew have decided the deed is to take place on 11th January, whether we raise any money or not; but any support you could give would be greatly appreciated.[/p][p]*****UPDATE - and then there were 8. We have a new player, Stu has joined the team. ******[/p][p]*****UPDATE -and then there were 9. Welcome Aaron Bishop. The trim for Jim is growing, let's raise as much as we can. ******[/p][p]We will be raising money for Smile4Wessex which is a small local charity that on average manages to raise £100,000 a year to support The Wessex Neurological Centre one of the largest and most highly respected neurological centers in the UK. In 2011 Smile4Wessex raised £200000 to buy a Lica Microscope this would have been used used during Jim’s surgery. [/p][p]Jim and the boys have raised £2000 (with gift aid) that's 2% of their yearly fundraising. Our aim is to support Jim and the boys by raising a bit more![/p][p]*****UPDATE It is with a very heavy heart that I have to say that the results Jim received after his operation were not good and that the tumour is non curable and fast growing. Our hearts and thoughts are with Jim and his family at this time. #AsOne *****[/p][p]*****UPDATE - we now have 11 people in the Trim for Jim. Welcome to Dave and Aidan. I know Jim will be blown away. *****[/p][p]*****UPDATE - we now have 12 people in the Trim for Jim. Welcome to Jim's friend Ian. So much love in the world!!!!!!!! *****[/p][p][br][/p]
