“We were optimistic when we were told that some people survived two years or more…”

“There is life after being told you have brain cancer” said Arkesden resident Jim Miles to a reporter from the Saffron Waldron Reporter:

Here's how this article starts: "For Jim Miles life is about enjoying the simple things. Walking his dogs with wife Cathy, playing golf, and writing his blog.
Above all, life is about spending time with family and friends and making the most of every day.

Every day counts because Jim is dying from brain cancer.”

And how is Jim spending his few remaining moments?

The article notes that “…Jim is alive today because of the pioneering surgery at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge.

The neurosurgical microscope used could extend – and maybe save – many other lives, but to meet the demand, £325,000 must be raised to purchase another.

That is what Jim is focused on.”
