Wife of Arnold police officer battling cancer makes fresh appeal for funding to pay for treatment in Germany

Bookmark

The family of a terminally-ill police officer from Arnold are renewing their appeal for donations to help pay for potentially life-saving treatment.

Sgt Phil Hogg was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in July last year and was told that he only had months to live.

While the latest scan has shown no growth or spread of the cancer, the side effects of his chemotherapy treatment are increasing and there is concern that further treatment may be less effective.

The family say they now need £60,000 to pay for pioneering treatment which is available at the Hallwang Clinic in Germany. The total raised currently stands at £19,416.

The private oncology clinic offers Immunotherapy Treatment – a treatment not available in the UK; they are confident that they can use it to get Phil into remission.

Phil’s wife Adele, said: “Phil has served as a police officer for 29 years and was looking forward to his retirement. Our son is a soldier in the British Army and our daughter is a promising footballer currently signed as a goalkeeper with Doncaster Rovers Belles. We are proud people but desperately want Phil to be around to see them grow up, so any money that you can spare would be greatly appreciated.”

You can make a donation to Phil’s fund at the family’s Go Fund Me site: https://www.gofundme.com/2mxsckk
