We helped another charity, FAN (Families Against Neuroblastoma) take some children to see Britains Got Talent at the O2 Arena. Most of the children were siblings of children who had Neuroblastoma or whose brother or sister has lost their battle with Neuroblastoma. There was also a young girl, Jazmine who has Ewings Sarcoma and Donna who has Neuroblastoma.
We funded half the cost of a limosene with FAN funding the other half, to collect the children, take down to London and then take home at the end of the evening. Link to FAN : http://www.familiesagainstneuroblastoma.org/
Taylor Mitchell, 14 years old, Large spinal ependymoma tumour with large syrinx, Left and right acoustic neuromas, East Sussex
Iona Daniels, 3 years old, Neuroblastoma, Glasgow.
We treated her to a lovely range of dressing up clothes.
We have donated a portable dvd player to Joshua Deller who is 2 1/2 years old. Joshua has been fighting Neuroblastoma since he was 7 months old.
We think its also important to help all members of the family, parents, siblings etc.
Everyone is affected when a child is diagnosed with cancer in different ways.
We sent a £100 River Island voucher to a young lady, Leah Mighty whose brother Lewis has Neuroblastoma.
It was her birthday and her mum wanted to spend some lovely mother and daughter time together shopping.
A young boy, Jay Brewer lives very local to the charity and his family are raising funds for his trip to America for Proton Therapy.
Despite two years of treatment British doctors cannot stop the tumour growing in Jay Brewer’s brain, so they are sending him to Florida for proton therapy.
Jay has Pilocytic Astrocytoma, which affect around 145 children each year in the UK. The NHS has agreed to fund this, and for Jay and one accompanying adult. But the family wanted to stay together through Jays treatment so set up an appeal to fund all the family going.
As we know only too well the struggle to raise funds we felt it only right to make a donation to Jay’s appeal. A donation of £1000 was made to Jay and his family, we wish them well and good luck for Jay’s treatment.
Pierce White, 9 years old, Neuroblastoma
When asked by his mum he thought this would be fab for him and his siblings to have lots of fun on. The only thing stopping them enjoying it at the moment is all the snow.
