Paul ‘Trouble’ Anderson’s Musical Family Urge Fans to donate as he struggles with cancer again
Loved worldwide by clubbers and DJs alike, friends of the DJ legend Paul ‘Trouble’ Anderson urge his fans across the world to donate as he struggles with his latest battle with cancer. Please donate here to support Paul in his fight.
Paul was first diagnosed with cancer in his left lung in 2011, and after a major operation, has been in remission for the past 6 years, but sadly not pain free. This summer after feeling unwell cancerous tumours were discovered in his brain and right lung.
In the last two weeks Paul has undergone an emergency operation to remove some of the tumours and reduce swelling and pressure to the brain, to be followed by a course of radiotherapy. Paul now needs to seek ongoing treatment with a specialist neuro-oncology team, as well as to ensure expert aftercare, physio and rehabilitation outside of the NHS. The group are aiming to raise as much as possible in order to fund his healthcare and need the help of his world wide following.
Needless to say Paul may not be able to appear at most if not all of his scheduled performances. However, he is determined to try and pre-record his regular Saturday show on Mi-Soul Radio to keep the good vibes flowing.
‘It will take months until Paul is able to return to his previous form, but it is his full intention and our greatest wish that he gets back to doing what he loves doing best. With the support of his family, friends and community we can do this. It’s our chance to give something back to this very special man who has given us so much.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and thank you for any support you can give.’
