Former Middlesex Youth cricketer Kyal Bacchus-Brown turns to crowd-funding for life-saving cancer treatment
At just 29 years of age Kyal Bacchus-Brown should have his whole life ahead of him.
Yet, for the last four years the former Middlesex Youth cricketer has been battling for his life, having been diagnosed with testicular cancer in May 2015!
Kyal first played for Middlesex in 2003, taking three wickets on debut for the county under 13’s side against Northamptonshire. He went on to represent the county at both under-15 and under-17 level, playing his final game for Middlesex in 2007.
After discovering his illness in 2015, surgery and chemotherapy treatment late that year were initially deemed a success, although post-operation check-ups showed that the cancer had spread and become more aggressive.
The introduction of proton beam therapy offered Kyal an alternative means of treatment and since undergoing this revolutionary treatment for eight months from early 2018 the results have been remarkable.
The tumors have all shrunk, yet tragically still remain, and regrettably the treatment is unavailable nor funded by the NHS. With their life savings depleted and no other means of continuing to fund this vital treatment Kyal and his family have turned to crowd-funding to raise the £63,000 he needs to continue his life-saving treatment.
If ever there were a time for the Middlesex Cricket family to pull together and support one of its own it is now. Kyal, his wife Louise and all those close to him would be so grateful of any support we can collectively offer, so please, if you can, join Middlesex staff and board members by donating to help Kyal.
