Sean founded GoFundMe in 2021 hoping to raise money for life-sustaining treatments.

“The NHS has been wonderful and will continue to look after me, but I have few options for continuing treatment other than chemotherapy.

“The future of cancer treatment seems to lie in immunotherapy. I would like to join the program at the CeGat clinic in Tübingen, Germany.”

“These guys are really smart. They create a personal cancer vaccine for me. This is not what the body does naturally.

“I hope this in conjunction with chemotherapy increases the chances that I will be there to stimulate your nerves for a while.”
