Please help and support us in raising money to pay for life saving cancer treatment for our beautiful, blue eyed boy, Charlie.

#thumbsupforcharlie

Charlie was diagnosed with a rare brain tumour (Ependymoma stage 2) on 9th June 2018, aged just 2 years old. He has endured a number of neurosurgical operations since but has still managed to make us all laugh with his cheeky antics, his lovely singing and his awesome thumbs up. The surgical team have tried to remove the tumour but unfortunately it could not all be removed as it is situated in the brain stem. Through all this, Charlie’s strength and positivity astounds us but now he needs our help more than ever.

Proton Beam Therapy is not yet available in the UK and Charlie does not meet the criteria for NHS funding for treatment abroad. We need to fund the treatment ourselves to go to a centre in Germany which specialises in brain tumours in children.

This is going to be very expensive. We need to raise a lot of money very quickly. The estimate we have is £100K pounds for Charlie’s treatment and accommodation. The treatment course is over several weeks and this does not cover living expenses for the family. Charlie has two brothers who are missing him very much while he is in hospital.

We want our fun loving, cheeky Charlie to have the best possible chance of survival and research shows that Proton Beam Therapy will give us the best possible outcome. Standard radiation therapy can have more long term effects on a developing brain since it kills more healthy tissue around the tumour.

All monies raised will go towards Charlie’s treatment, care and ways to make him smile during a very tough time.

Without hope we have nothing. Please support Charlie and his family on this long and difficult journey.

If everyone can give a little, we can achieve a lot.
