Keep Oli smiling fund

As many of you will know Oli was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma in his spine in December 2014. Ewing's is a very rare bone and soft tissue cancer. There are no other children this young in the UK currently undergoing treatment for this form of cancer.

Fortunately his cancer was caught at the localised stage meaning that it has not spread elsewhere which is very positive. Oli continues to undergo intensive chemotherapy under the amazing care of Olga Slater and her team as well as the phenomenal nurses of Elephant, Lion and Giraffe wards at Great Ormond Street Hospital. He is responding well to chemotherapy.

As part of his treatment, Oli will be going to Jacksonville in Florida to have proton beam radiotherapy. Along with Katie, Steven and his brand new baby brother Jamie, Oli will be away for around 10-11 weeks before he returns to the UK for 8 cycles of consolidation chemotherapy.

This fund has been set up to raise money for Oli and his family to go to Jacksonville and ensure that their stay is as memorable as it can be in the circumstances. As many of you will know, life for Oli and his family has changed for now and the more funds we can raise, the more we can do to enable Oli's smile to continue to shine through and keep inspiring us all.
