On wednesday 12th of July Ollie was admitted to Monash Childrens Hospital as a very unwell boy with no colour to his skin and his cheeky grin absent ... Blood tests followed, then blood transfusions, then surgery for lumbar puncture to confirm every parents nightmare.
Ollie has ALL (Acute Lynhomblastic Leukemia).
Chemotheorapy is the recommended treatment and will be given for 3 & 1/2 YEARS. There will be a very intense first 6 months - then monthly lumbar puncture, numerous blood tests and scans to follow.
We need to raise funds for Ollie ASAP - as you can imagine the financial strain this puts on a family when they need to focus on Ollie and his siblings.
Its an extremely stressful time and a juggling act - any donations will help towards everyday living expenses while Robin (Ollies mum) is unable to work. These are basic things like petrol , hospital parking, care for the other siblings, bills and medical expenses.
As a group we are also currenlty organising a fundraiser day for end of August with a silent auction to help raise funds - if you have something you would like to donate or know someone that could that would be an AMAZING support also!
If we all help a little it will go a VERY long way!
