Fundraising for Toddler with Childhood Cancer

Postby caroline.haldane » Thu Feb 07, 2019 3:52 pm

Hi All. Thanks for taking the time to read this post. Unfortunately, our son Mikey was diagnosed with high risk neuroblastoma, an aggressive and rare form of cancer, at the age of 20 months in Dec 17. He has since battled his way through the NHS treatment protocol, which is due to complete in mid Mar this year. He has responded well to treatment to date, however it is a highly challenging disease. Of those children that achieve initial remission, c. 40-50% relapse and of those children that do only c. 10% survive. As such, like many other families that find themselves in this situation, we are fundraising through the Solving Kids Cancer charity to give Mikey the maximum chance of access to further promising treatment or clinical trials overseas that are not available on the NHS. Anything that anyone can do to support the cause or any advice that anyone can give on how we can bolster his fundraising would be greatly appreciated. We are looking to maximise his fundraising by the end of Mar, when his end of treatment NHS scans take place. His fundraising links are www.solvingkidscancer.org.uk/campaigns/mikey-harney, and www.justgiving.com/campaign/mikeyharney. Thanks in advance for your support!
