After being diagnosed with a brain tumour, this couple proclaimed their love at Gileston Manor

Couple Credit: www.katiealexandraphotography.co.ukOn 4 September, Owain James, a plumber and keen footballer from Caerphilly received devastating news that he had an incurable brain tumour (glioma). Owain (34) and Ellie (33) who have an 18-month-old daughter, made a promise to each other that they would do anything and everything to have as much time together as possible.
 
Since then, Owain has had surgery to remove half of the tumour and is currently undergoing an intensive course of radiotherapy and chemotherapy. The couple got married at Gileston Manor in the Vale of Glamorgan surrounded by family and friends.
 
Ellie said: “Words can’t explain how utterly devastated we are by the discovery of Owain’s tumour. We have gone with everything the NHS has to offer. An incredible team of surgeons at the University Hospital of Wales have removed as much of the tumour as they could without impairing Owain. We have done our research, liaised with our Oncologist and there is hope. Immunotherapy (DCVax), which is changing the face of cancer care, is a viable option for Owain. Optune is also a viable treatment that is available to people in Owain’s situation in both Germany and the US, but sadly, it is not currently available on the NHS. It works in a similar way to radiotherapy, but uses electromagnetic waves to target the tumour.” 
 
A crowdfunding page has been set up for Owain, which has already seen family, friends and anonymous donors donate over £21,000 towards the £250,000 target in just over a week. 
 
Local events are also taking place to help raise vital funds for Owain, including a 10-mile walk taking in the three castle of Caerphilly, Castell Coch and Cardiff, and a fundraiser at Llantwit Fardre Rugby Club. Any businesses who would like to donate a raffle prize should email fundsforowain@hotmail.com
