CARING: David Isbell with daughter Lauren

A MAN who is being treated for cancer has organised a concert to give something back to the hospital that treated him.

David Isbell was training for the King’s Lynn’s Bespak Grand East Anglian Run (GEAR) event last Spring when he discovered a lump under his arm.

Initially, it was thought the lump might have been a muscle strain from his training but he was later diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

Father-of-two Mr Isbell, 53, who lives in Dersingham with wife Mel, has undergone chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge.

With the support of friends and family, Mr Isbell has put together a music event on Sunday, April 30, at Dersingham Social Club, from 2pm to 9pm to raise money for Lynn’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

He said: “My treatment is going well, but I have spent a lot of time at King’s Lynn and I wanted to support somewhere local.

“We are hoping for a good crowd to come along and support a good cause.”

Soul singer Uche Eke will be topping the bill, which also includes Carolann and former Swaffham resident Ashley Morton, who is making a rare public appearance in this area.

All five acts who are set to appear at the concert have agreed to donate their time for free.

Mr Isbell is also appealing for prizes to be raffled on the night.

If you would like to donate a prize or for further information, email Mr or Mrs Isbell on
