Welcome to Kane's Wishlist!
This page was set up to raise money for an extremely remarkable young man who touched many hearts.
Kane was 10 years old when he started his battle against liver cancer in February of 2012. He had LFS (Li"“Fraumeni Syndrome) which is a genetic condition that causes cancer in children and young adults.
He had embryonic liver sarcoma of the rarest kind and his tumors were wrapped around his main tummy arteries so therefore plus not be removed.
With no further treatment available for him, Kane & his Mother, Gayle, who faced a double mastectomy to try and rid of her own cancers, travelled to Frankfurt Liver Centre in Germany where Kane received Transarterial Chemoablation Therapy.
The intent of transarterial chemoablation is to eliminate the primary blood supply of the tumor, with the idea that the tumor will die without proper nutrients. A chemotherapeutic agent is injected into the hepatic artery, where the liver primarily gets its blood supply, and the artery becomes occluded and blood flow stops.
This give all of Kane's family & friends more time to spend with him, completing his dreams and goals on this wishlist.
The bad news at the time was, the treatment costs £4,000 each treatment and Kame needed 5. that is 5 at £4,000 each, plus 5 lots of flights & accommodation. We desperately neededthe publics help.
We decided to set up "Kane's Wishlist" to help him achieve all his goals, ambitions and luxury wishes he had set out to accomplish in his life.
The money raised on this page went towards Kane's once in a lifetime trip to the fabulous New York! It also contributed toward the things on his 'itinerary of his life'.
The whole family have been overwhelmed with gifts, donations & lots of support and kindness. We would like to thank everyone for all they have given or done throughout the difficult time.
We hoped the page would create a community of strength and a place where people can follow Kane through his journey. It certainly did.
Kane sadly grew his angel wings on the 17th of July 2013, 4 days after his twelfth birthday. We miss him more with every day that passes.
We continue to raise money in Kane's memory, to give to families with children suffering from cancers less worry about costs of travel and accommodation whilst receiving treatment. The money also goes towards luxuries for these children such as gifts or family days out. We would appreciate if you would all continue to support us in keeping Kane's memory alive through selfless giving to those in need.
Thank you very much, Kane's very proud family xx
