Ellis is my courageous and cheeky little cousin who has one of the most purest and beautiful hearts, if you met him you wouldn't forget him. In February 2021 at just 3 years old he was diagnosed with the devastating news of neuroblastoma cancer. The past year has been horrific, his childhood being robbed from him with chemotherapy instead of park play, nurses instead of teachers, food tubes instead of tasty treats. His curiosity grows wanting to know how what and why this is happening are answers we don't have ourselves. Despite all of this his smile and cheerful spirit has never wavered.
Ellis's beads of courage, every bead has a meaning whether it's an x-ray or transfusion, the black beads stand for blood draws, the yellow for each night in hospital and white beads for a session of chemotherapy. No child should have to go through this journey, or endure the pain and the trauma cancer causes.
Ellis's MIBG results are back and it's not the news we wanted, we was hoping to hear the cancer is responding instead we heard the cancer has spread to his legs and spine. We are heartbroken.
There are trials out there to treat Ellis and we will not give up on him. At this stage we're still researching while we fundraise to find the perfect trial for Ellis's type of cancer as there a few options but every donation recieved would put us one step closer to being able to pay for the treatment Ellis deserves so he can go back to living and enjoying his childhood. I will keep this page updated when we know exactly what trial we hope for Ellis to take part of.
Ellis has been fighting for such a long time and his doing an amazing job but if his going to beat this he needs our help too. Trials are pricey, especially with added travel costs even a small donation could help us reach the fundraising target, and if you cannot donate sharing this fundraiser would make a huge difference aswell, helping to reach our target, treat Ellis and say goodbye to cancer. For this me and family would be extremely greatfull.
Ellis shows strength everyday regardless of pain and continues to put one foot Infront of the other everyday his smile is contagious and is the fuel that keeps us going. We are so proud of you pumpKING.
Thankyou to everyone who took the time to read and support Ellis.
