In 2015, Charlie, aged 8 was diagnosed with a brain tumour called a medulloblastoma. He endured emergency surgery to remove the tumour and then many rounds of radiation followed by 4 stem cells transplants. He was recovering well, until the devastating news in March 2018 that the tumour had returned in two places on his spine. He's since had 2 further rounds of chemo which have not halted the growth and the tumours have unfortunately doubled in size during this period. Options on the NHS are now extremely limited and the chance of a clinical trial is slim.
Cyberknife treatment could offer real hope in this urgent situation. This is a precise radiosurgery which is painless and non invasive but comes at a cost of £30,000 - which the NHS wont fund.
Charlie's family are desperate for him to have this treatment as soon as possible before his condition deteriorates. This treatment is offered in Europe and America with great results.
Any help would be much appreciated for this much loved, cheeky and very brave little soldier!
