I expect most of us wish we could deal with something like this in the way that he has. His Facebook page is very moving.

I saw it on Jason Manford's facebook. When he started I think there was 500k yesterday and now its well over 1 million.

As you say its very moving and amazing how he has dealt with it.

I saw it on Jason Manford's page too, made a donation last night.

Just awful, but I'm so pleased that one of his 'bucket list' aims has happened for him.

Currently at over GBP 1.5M. That's wonderful and I hope it provides some comfort to him and his family.

He's gone from initial target of £10,000 to current total of £1.66 million. This restores some faith in humanity.

It is amazing how many people this young man has managed to reach, his family must be so proud of him wanting to help especially as he faces his own death. So sad.
