'He's just incredible in every way' - Kate Brandon has just five days left to save her husband's life

The Bristol Royal Infirmary where Mike Brandon has been treated for leukaemia

Kate Brandon has less than a week to save her husband's life.

Mike Brandon was diagnosed with leukaemia in 2014. Following a campaign for a transplant, he was able to find a donor match and then get married to Kate.

But around Easter this year, he was told his cancer had returned. His last chance of survival is a trial treatment in America called CAR T cell therapy.

The couple, however, needs to raise £400,000 in order to pay for the travel and treatment.

"If he's got any chance of surviving this, he's got to be there now," Kate told Julia Hartley-Brewer. "He needs to be there next Wednesday for an appointment on Thursday.

"This treatment has a huge chance to get him into remission. From the research I've read, you're looking at a 70-95% chance [of success]."

Kate is making a plea for donations to the cause - she has raised more than £190,000 so far.

"He's the most gentle of souls, most wonderfully kind, witty," she added. "There's not a more perfect person for me to spend my life with, he's just incredible in every way.

"With the love of the world behind us, we can achieve anything."
