Making precious memories for Alex and his family

Donation protected
Thank you for taking the time to visit our GoFundMe Page.

We would like to raise money for Alex Maddocks, a pupil at Perryfields High School and a friend to all our children.

In March 2023 just before Alex’s 15th birthday, Alex was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer, Osteosarcoma.

Alex has spent the last year receiving intensive treatment. In December 2023, Alex had surgery at Birmingham Children’s Hospital to replace his Shoulder Joint and a bone in his arm.

Unfortunately, It was after this operation that Alex and his family received the devastating news that the cancer had spread to his cells, meaning treatment was no longer an option.

Alex has recently began targeted tablet therapy which will hopefully help slow the growth of the cancer which has now spread to his lungs.

Due to his illness, Alex has lost use of his right hand and arm, no longer being able to do things such as playing PS5 with his friends. Alex has days where he can’t get out of bed and becomes breathless and tired. In spite of all these things Alex still loves to watch his favourite team Aston Villa on TV and to spend time with his friends and family when he can.

We would love to help Alex and his family make as many memories as possible and to ease any financial pressures, whilst they have enough to deal with.

Please share Alex’s story and make a donation if you can, anything you can donate would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Danny, Mel and Laura.
(Fletcher, Joe and Harvey’s parents)
