A house DJ still desperately needs to raise £6,000 so he can have lifesaving treatment in the Czech Republic.

Nicky Holloway, from Barnet, was diagnosed with prostate cancer last year and his only hope is the Proton Therapy Centre in Prague.

But he has now turned his efforts to fundraising because he cannot afford to cover the cost of the expensive treatment himself.

It is not available in the UK or the NHS and he flew over to Prague this week to see the centre himself.

Known as one of the ‘Ibiza Four’, Nicky said: "When they told me my options I thought to myself ‘there has to be some other way’. I spent months going private in Harley Street trying to find other options, none on which were available to me.

“As soon as they said I could come over I jumped on a plane and came over to Prague.

"I knew straight away, as soon as I walked in, after one brief meeting, I just said ‘yeah, that’s it, that’s the one for me’.

"If you’re going to have a go at this I can’t think of a better place to do it, because it really is a lovely city.

"It feels like a weird holiday.”

Now back at home, the music producer is helping to raise awareness in a new video campaign for Proton Therapy UK.

Nicky said: “I’m very lucky to have had a life where I’ve managed to travel the world.

"DJing and performing at festivals, events and nightclubs all over the world.

“So it was a bit of a nasty shock to me when I found out I was ill.

“At the beginning I didn’t really want to tell people.

"Then one day I thought ‘you know what, I’m just going to tell everyone’.”

Traditional radiotherapy involves blasting cancerous cells with X-rays to kill them - but it can also damage healthy cells.

Proton beam therapy works by accelerating protons until they reach half the speed of light, targeting them at cancer cells with precision.

Unlike traditional radiotherapy it preserves healthy tissue in front of the tumour and preventing damage to the tissue behind it.
