MAD About Harry - APPEAL

£667,405 of £500,000 goal

Raised by 11,973 people in 47 months
Thank you for taking the time to visit this GoFundMe page.

Harry Banks is a ten-year-old bubbly, smiley, very cheeky, but completely adorable boy.

In late 2014 we were given the devastating news that Harry had Stage 4 Neuroblastoma, a very rare and aggressive children’s cancer. After bravely enduring two years of intensive chemotherapy, continuous investigations, major surgery, high dose chemotherapy, radiotherapy, immunotherapy and more, Harry had two and a half years in remission and rung the bell to mark the end of his treatment, although we knew he would continue to be monitored.  Devastatingly, once again our world has been turned upside down – in November of 2018 we were given the distressing news that he has had a neuroblastoma relapse to the CNS (central nervous system) and had to have an emergency operation to remove a tumour from his brain.  Neuroblastoma has one of the lowest survival rates of all childhood cancers, and a CNS relapse is so rare – it’s the worst. Harry desperately needs your help in any way you can.

'Mad About Harry' was set up in 2014 to raise funds for Harry in the event he would need a ground-breaking trial abroad. If the fund was not going to be needed then once he was no longer at risk, the fund would be donated to help other children suffering from this horrible condition. Mad About Harry now aims to raise £500,000 for a ground-breaking trial at Memorial Sloane Kettering in New York or Barcelona. The NHS has been fabulous with the care and treatment they have been able to provide for Harry so far, but he is now in unknown NHS waters. This privately funded treatment is the only lifeline available. Please help us raise £500,000 by March in any way you can, thank you for your help it means so much to us. x A HUGE thank you from all Harry’s family and friends who really really don’t want a world where children go through the journey that Harry is treading, it means so much to us and to them.

The support for Harry has been incredible. Offline and online donations combined have now reached £500k. There are many wonderful events planned which will push this figure still higher. A huge thank you for your support and donations that have helped us achieve this for Harry.

Your support has resulted in Nina and Russ being able to focus on the most important thing now which is looking after Harry and preparing him for the difficult treatment ahead.
We will continue with all planned events and keep the campaign live, as all monies raised will support any further treatment Harry may need or help other children and the fight against Neuroblastoma.

All funds raised have been placed in a trust to be used for Harry’s current and future treatment and associated costs. At a point where no further treatment is required, or can reasonably be expected, the trustees and the family will agree how best to apportion the funds as set out on the website: neuroblastoma research; and children and their families that are affected by this cruel disease.

Thank you for all your messages of support and for making a difference to Harry’s tomorrow.
