Barclay, who now plays in And Yet It Moves was diagnosed with grade four Glioblastoma brain cancer late last year at the age of 32.
“I have had one craniotomy which removed 90% of the initial tumour,” he wrote. “After that, I did six weeks of radiotherapy and six months of a clinical trial alongside chemotherapy. My tumour has two mutations which make it rarer than average (had to be!). The cancer has returned. The fight continues with the power to face it raging in me.”
He continues: “There is no doubt, whatsoever, that I’ll be living with cancer for as long as I am alive. However time pans out, it’s here, it’s now and it’s not going anywhere. The NHS have been stellar, true heroes – too many to mention. They have done everything in their power for me, but my treatment from here on out is going to cost money. I need specialist care. I am officially a customer. This is the reality.”
