A 27-year-old dad-of-two from Leeds with '30 tumours in his lungs' has launched an urgent fundraiser 'to save his life'.

Sherwin Hall was recently diagnosed with a malignant 14cm tumor invading from his prostate to bladder - despite having no previous health problems.

On Monday this week (June 8), Sherwin - who became a dad for the second time just nine weeks ago - was also told he has roughly 30 tumours in his lungs following a CT scan.

He has now been admitted to hospital and is due to start chemotherapy this week.

Consultants have told Sherwin that the cancer is suspected to be either sarcoma, lymphoma or prostate cancer.

His partner has put together a fundraiser on his behalf in order to try and raise £35,000 to attend an alternative cancer hospital where he believes he would have 'the best chance of survival'.

Due to the size of his tumour, doctors have told Sherwin it is best dealt with as soon as possible so he said there is an 'urgency' required to raise the funds.

He said on a GoFundMe page: "I have put together this go fund me as I would like to attend an Alternative Cancer hospital which cost £35,000 so that I can have the best chance of survival to watch my 6 year old and 9 week old sons grow up.

"Due to the size of the tumour the hospital has said it’s best to come as soon as possible creating a bit of urgency to raise the money required for treatment.

"Please donate anything that you can to help me to save my life."
