                                 We have been forced to set up a fundraiser for our 9 year old boy jacks fight against Osteosarcoma proximal {bone cancer} & his rehabilitation journey back to somewhat a normal life. 
                                                                                                                                                                                                             

                                                                                                      On the19th january 2022 jack was in a motorcross compertition in devon .when he colided wh another rider which led to a visit to A&E at Torbay hospital  upon been assessed he was sent for a xray  to find out that he had fractured his lower right leg.the doctor in a&e was concerned & wanted a second opinion on jacks xray. along came another consultant who explained to us jack required a ct scan & was required to stay in hospital overnight for further investigation.                                                                                                                                                 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 Over the next 24 hours jack underwent numerouse fluid & blood tests & a mri scan.at this point we were told they had found some admirality & jack needed to be transfered to the Royal Manchester Childrens Hospital hundreds of miles away.this was organised straight away & within 2 hours we were edding north up the M5 in the back of a ambulance with myself following in the car.the next 48 hours were like a worldwind more scans & tests were carried out. for us to be taken into a room with two consultants & told our little boy had osteosarcoma proximal bone cancer in his right tibia.
