Jays Journey

£2,086 of £4,196 goal

Raised by 88 people in 40 months
This Page has been set up for Sixteen year old Jay Oxley from Keyworth Village, Nottinghamshire and he was at the beginning of what he and we as a family hoped will be a promising career in agriculture after starting his studies at Brooksby Melton College in 2015. 


Having a passion for animals and the country life from a young age Jay decided to put his other ambition of joining the Royal Marines on hold to pursue his farming interests after having an amazing time in collage and with working at Harker’s Blackberry farm. 
However he had planned too join the reserves this year.

Very sadly Jay is unable to attend full time college or work at the moment as in January 2016 he was very suddenly diagnosed with Acute lymphoblastic lymphoma T- Cell non Hodgkin's lymphoma a very rare and aggressive type of cancer. 

Even more disappointingly Jay has not responded to the normal course of chemotherapy that can often cure this type of cancer, so now it really is a case of trial and error in his treatment plan. 

Through all of this Jay has kept a remarkable positivity and sense of humour.. even wearing his wellies to his treatment sessions much to the amusement of the nurses. 

Jays Journey is a way for friends, family and the wider community to follow Jay’s journey but also to raise awareness and some money. This is intended initially to help give Jay some positives in his life at a time when sometimes being positive can be a struggle. 

One of Jay’s goals is to get his tractor license and own his own farming quad bike and if we could make these two small dreams come true it would be wonderful. 

If Jay’s new treatment is also unsuccessful he may also need treatment elsewhere which could be expensive and we want to give him every chance possible for whatever treatment he may need even if it is not in this country. And when Jay beats this! We hope that we have raised enough funds to pay for yearly private MRI scans in the future to catch any relapses early.

Jay may also need a bone marrow transplant to maintain and cure the disease if a successful match can be found. So in the long term we would like this page to raise awareness of how easy it is to sign up to be a bone marrow donor. 

In the long term we hope the page will be the base for a registered charity that will raise money for other young farmers affected by cancer in order to fund treats or help them achieve personal ambitions whilst they undergo such invasive and grueling treatments. 

So please share this page wherever you can and follow us on twitter - https://twitter.com/JaysJourneyJJ

Of course any kind of donation or fundraising is appreciated more than you can ever know as are your kind messages of love and support.

Many kind wishes, Claire,Ben & Jay Oxley
