A previous ‘fit and healthy’ young man was surprised to learn that he had stage 4 cancer after having difficulty swallowing.
Colm Powell saw the symbol in March this year, Cheshire Live reports.
A 27-year-old man from Ellismere Port, Cheshire, visited doctors several times to find out what was causing the problem.
Medical experts initially thought he might have a glandular fever or stomach ulcer, but sadly, he was diagnosed with gastro-oesophageal cancer in May.
Endoscopy revealed that a tumor had formed between her esophagus and her stomach.
Further scans further revealed the devastating news that the cancer had spread, when the column was told that her esophageal cancer was incurable and incurable.
Now, the column’s sister, Chloe Powell, 25, has set up one Crude funding Page to raise money for your brother’s possible treatment.
He said: “The column was a healthy and healthy boy before, you know, never had a doctor and never really had a problem before.
“He had the corona virus in January, but he recovered immediately and went back to work. He had been working for a few weeks and at first he began to feel like he was struggling to swallow in March.
“He went back to the doctors who had blood tests as usual and they first thought it was a glandular fever. Then he went to them with a glandular fever and thought he had a stomach ulcer.
“Then on May 18, she had an endoscopy which revealed that she had a tumor under her esophagus and between her stomach.”
After the CT scan and PET scan, the former utilities manager column was saddened to learn that the tumor had spread.
Chloe said: “We were all very surprised by what happened. He is obviously a very fit and healthy young boy.

“I did a lot of research on this cancer at the time because the nail was clearly floor by diagnosis and I found that when you get symptoms, the cancer grows.
“It’s really a terrible cancer. I never knew you could get this kind of cancer.
“It’s been really weird, crazy for a few weeks. We really are. It’s got to the floor.”
After the diagnosis, Colm spent two weeks in Chester Hospital where she was being tube-fed due to her weight loss limit.
Chloe said she remembers one of the first calls to the oncologist, who told the family that with treatment, the column would live three to five years.
However, since returning home, Column’s condition has improved, and doctors have given him more doses of chemotherapy.
Chloe said: “Nail has come out of the hospital and we have all rallied together to pull it out.
“In the last few weeks he has gone from having a faucet to feeding himself. He is having too many calories, he is feeling less sick and his symptoms have decreased, that’s why He has been offered a high dose of chemo.
“We found out that her cancer is HER2 positive, so the NHS gave us this targeted drug therapy to help with nail chemo.
“Obviously, from myself and my family, we have so much hope that with Cal performing and behaving, we will have more opportunities for treatment in the future.”
The column received its first round this week and began chemotherapy treatment, which was a complete dose.
“Obviously we’re just at the beginning,” Chloe said.
“He’s really feeling fit and well, so we just hope he gets on this road.”
The family has spent £ 2,500 on sending a tumor biopsy to Belgium for genetic testing, including private counseling, private oncology meetings, alternative therapies and medications, nutritionists, active medicine practice and counseling in Christie’s.
Now, they have set up a crude funding page to ensure that the column will receive funding for any future treatment.
He said: “We have never asked anyone for money, and we are not asking people for money, it’s just that friends and family are telling us, you know, ‘What can we do to help? ‘
“We have talked to some experts who have said that there is a possibility that the column could go to an alternative cancer clinic in Germany, and at that point, you will need to be prepared to go and the money will be ready. ۔
“We’re not sure where the treatment line is going right now, but we only have options.”
Crude Funding has already raised more than 000 16,000 with Chloe and added that the donations mean ‘the world’ to Column and his family.
He said: “We just feel grateful. It means the world for us, and the column means the world for us, and obviously it means a lot of people.
“Just to know that he has got the network around him that is rooting for him, it means a lot.
“It’s great to see how many people have actually donated and are there to support the column, and we’re grateful to everyone who has helped so far.
