Cancer doesn't stop the Thompsons

Life was perfect for the Thompson's in the Manchester home. That was until Mike was diagnosed with cancer. "It was a huge blow to our family" said wife Kirsty "Mike would have to give up his job for the treatments, but with store cards, car loans and a holiday from last year to pay-off we couldn't afford to be without a source of income" .

The stress was taking its toll on Mike. "I felt like a failure. The stress wasn't good for my condition" he recalls. "Our own hope was to sell our house and move in with my parents who lived in Liverpool. This wasn't something I was looking forward to as our family would be crammed into their house. But it was our only option".

Selling their home, however, was proving to be an impossible task. "No one would buy my house. We dropped the price repeatedly, but no one was interested in buying the property".

Thankfully Kwik Sale came to the rescue. "I had heard about Kwik Sale from my friends in Skelmersdale" remembers Mike "All it took was one phone call and within a couple of days I received a hefty cash sum for my house".

Best of all Kwik Sale's rent back option meant the family didn't have to move from their home. "Staying in the property helped keep Mike's stress levels low" said Kirsty.

After a series of treatments, Mike is now in remission and the family are looking forward to a bright future.
