Hi all , i have always thought of us fishkeepers as a bunch a decent people always willing to help another fishkeeper out . Well my nephew Brian 28 yrs old and an avid fishkeeper is in serious trouble but unfortionatly not of the fishy nature . Brian was diagnosed with cancer in 2016 he fought a hard battle to beat it . It has returned with a vengence and the drugs and treatment he urgently needs are not availabe in ireland . His sister Roisin has started a go fund me page www.gofundme.com/brianslattery . Here you can read his heartbreaking story, we have already raised 50,000 of the 140000 that is needed for his life saving treatment. Now the hard bit , i am appealing for every fishkeeper to donate the cost of a small fish to Brians fund , so we can keep this young man amongst us fishkeepers for many years to come. We as a family thank you from the very bottom of our hearts . Robert Carter
