Cancer Care Jávea recently had an incredible donation from John Styles and his wife. The following text is from John himself explaining why he chose to raise money to give to Cancer Care Jávea. Cancer Care are very grateful to John and his friends for such a wonderful donation, which will go towards the ECMOR Foundation at Denia Hospital and other cancer related projects local to Jávea.
“My experience with cancer started over one year ago, when I woke one morning in terrible pain. I asked a friend to take me to Denia Hospital, it turned out to be a urine infection. I then went to see my own doctor and was diagnosed with prostrate cancer which I received treatment for in the form of a course of tablets and chemo. I have had good results and wanted to give something back to a cancer charity. Nearly everyone knows a family member or friend who has been affected.
On the occasion of my 70th birthday we arranged a party at Quo Vardis in Jávea. In the form of a raffle and auction we were able to raise 1800€. We were very impressed with the support we received from businesses and restaurants, in the form of gifts for Cancer Care. A big thank you to everyone in helping to make the evening a success.”
