In our experience with Kevin Wright, he has never asked for a penny, and has in fact given us hundreds of pounds worth of supplements and equipment to help in our teenage sons recovery from a bone marrow transplant.

A balanced view of events does not appear to matter to the press or public, who seem happy to just see one side of a very complex situation.

There is not a single bad thing I can say about Kevin Wright, but there are a lot of good things I can say about him. Bottom line is my daughter would not be here today if it were not for Kevin! Funny how the media never mention, nor Callums mother that if it were not for Kevin, Callum would not be here today. The money Kevin raised was for children with cancer, and he made sure it did! How do I know this because he has helped my daughter who he has never even met! The media never mentioned all the familys such as my own who do not live in the UK who he has gone above and beyond for! It actually scares me to think of all those familys that will not be able to get the help from ! He helped my family and my daughter financially, materials, and support! Shame on the UK justice system, shame on the UK media! Children and familys will suffer because of this! We live in Canada where there are absolutely no integrated programs for our children, the United Kingdom was very lucky to have such a strong advocate for childrens cancer such as Kevin! Kevin never asked for any money from myself and my family, nor has he ever received any! Kevin was always a phone call away. When I heard they had convicted him I literally threw up, I have felt sick to my stomach for days since! I fell sorry for his family who will suffer greatly, I feel sorry for other Children such as my daughter who need his help, I feel scared for my own daughters life. Who will I turn to when my daughter needs help? I am behind Kevin Wright 100 percent, and always will be!Ē

What both the jury and the media have failed to understand and report here is all the good Kevin Wright does. I shall focus on what I know of him. We are a family who have been helped enormously by him. He has supplied us with thousands of pounds worth of equipment to help my son, who suffered the same stage four cancer as his son, get back to good health. And it is working. After a year's harsh cancer treatment my son is now on the 91st centile for his age which astounds people who hear of it. He is strong, recovering, but still has a long way to go. So when I ask myself has Kevin Wright had a fair trial? Has his story been reported in the media accurately? No is the answer. And because of this not only will Kevin Wright's family suffer, but so will all the oncology families at home and abroad whose stories you never hear of. So too will suffer, people who have yet to be diagnosed who will never benefit from his knowledge. Oh, and on the final note of money.......yes you guessed it, he has never had a penny from me yet has given me his time, advice and guidance, equipment and organic food. Because Kevin Wright is also the kind of person who plants a garden, grows organic fruit and veg and sends it free to oncology families. So are you reading a balanced story? I think not Sir

I was diagnosed with advanced squamous carcinoma stage 3. As the tumour had developed on my thyroid gland I was told i would have a fungating mass on my neck and be on palliative care within a year if i did not receive conventional treatment. I researched all treatments and the side affects and looked at the percentages of each treatments survival rates.
I came to the conclusion of dealing with my cancer with holistic and alternative treatments. As soon as i told the NHS of my decision they told me there was nothing they could help me with and i WAS ON MY OWN. Luck would have it i was told of this man who lived in my town who so i called Kevin and arranged to meet him.
I can honestly say i have never met a man of such integrity, honesty and nothing is too much trouble for kevin. He never asked me for any money for the nutrients he gave me for free, the use of his oxygen chamber at any time of the day and above all the warmth that he his wife, family and his staff has shown me. If It wasn't for Kevin's knowledge and straight talking advice i would now have either a neck disceptomy, no saliva glands, no taste buds, disintegrating jaw and most of my teeth removed and that is only the start of what radiotherapy can do to somebody.
Like so many other great people in this world who have tried to educate us in the truth about cancer.

have all been subject to humiliation, discredited, court trials against them and some with imprisonment BY THE AUTHORITIES.
Kevin i truly believe in you and the people of this country have only heard one side of the story because of the propaganda the media has portrayed you as something you truly are not.
I hope all the people that you have helped sincerely speak up and start telling there side of the story about you.
From me and my family you have our full support and we will always stand by you.

People should always remember that newspapers sell by gripping us with stories which tell us the worst. This is a very obscured and damaging view of the truth. Kevin Wright is a very selfless man Ė He has helped my family and I have met many other families who value Kevinís work and would be lost without it. No appeal money was spent inappropriately. He dedicated his life to curing his sonís cancer, and continued to do so for others when he didnít have to - He could have counted his blessings and put cancer behind him, but he didnít. He put all of his time and energy into supporting and helping others. He had provided so many families with valuable information, knowledge, products, nutrition, treatments, finances, and more. He has made a commendable positive impact on so many familiesí lives. No money was stolen from children with cancer. I will always be grateful and amazed by the remarkable work that Kevin does.
