Howard Branson

Post by Lee Harradine on Tue Mar 01, 2016 11:32 am

My brother-in-law, Life Member Howard Branson is fighting a rare form of cancer.

Howard was given a bad prognosis at first, but is set for a complicated, but hopefully successful surgery on March 9th.

It's a long and difficult operation, but we're all hopeful of a good result.

Let's get around him and his wife Linda, as long-standing members of the West Adelaide family.

Best wishes to howie and his family. Linda and howard have a long history of active support to the club notably within the mini league area and are great friendly west adelaide people always willing to have a chat with any supporter.


Lee did not mention it but i recomend the post below i recieved from his son that i have copied  for concideration by all westies people. Bless you young man!

Unfortunately, Dad has been struck down with Peritoneal Mesothelioma. A rare form of asbestos poisoning. He is having tests now to see how he contracted this terrible disease. To assist in Cancer Research, I am running in the Bay-City fun run and raising some funds for Cancer Council SA. If you can possibly help me reach my target of $1000, go to baycity2016.everydayhero.com/au/michael-172 and help me help those less fortunate. All donations are tax deductible.

Howard's operation didn't go as well as we all hoped. He had remarkably few days in hospital after such a najor operation and was in good spirits when we visited him.

I have to say he's been amazingly strong considering all the circumstances. He's home now and is OK and we're looking forward to a meal or two soon with him and my lovely sister, Linda, who has been a huge support, eve though she's had to often work double shifts as well as looking after Howard.
