On the 4th May 2018 Harry was diagnosed with a brain tumour the size of a golf ball – this was a huge shock as he was a perfectly healthy, normal 19 year old with his only symptom being worsening vision. Since then Harry has undergone countless operations and complications including contracting meningitis. Harry spent 7 weeks in the John Radcliffe Hospital, with his parents able to stay close by thanks to the incredible generosity of friends, family and neighbours. Harry is now home but still has a small amount of the tumour left and given its location he must now receive Proton Beam Therapy abroad. We don’t know where this will be yet (we have been told it will be either Essen, Germany or Jacksonville, Florida) however we know that he will be spending between 8-10 weeks there for his treatment. We are now raising funds to support Harry and his family through this time so that they are able to go with him and support him themselves.
The Mocketts’ would just like to thank everyone who has donated and supported us so far in this journey – we could not have done it without you!!
