Good News!

I have successfully battled with cancer for nearly four years now and recently with a tumour on my brain. This is affecting my eyesight, and my ability to keep this website up to date, but the talented team of surgeons at Oxford University Hospital have removed it without further damage to the visual cortex. 

Prognosis for my sight uncertain, but it is hoped that with three months’ rest and new stronger glasses I shall be able to carry on!

Your prayers and offers of help have been very much appreciated. Richard Irwin.
