Thank you for taking the time to visit this GoFundMe page.

Harry Banks is 8 years old and goes to Eversholt Lower School. In September 2014, he was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive childhood cancer called Neuroblastoma. Harry has had many months of chemotherapy, tests and procedures. There were unexpected setbacks which meant Harry had to endure many more weeks of chemotherapy than initially planned before his main treatment could continue. In August 2015, Harry finally had the operation to remove the primary tumour. The surgery was successful and he recovered well. This has been followed by further high dose chemotherapy and radiotherapy. He went on to have immunotherapy treatment at Great Ormond Street Hospital. This was the final stage of treatment that the NHS will cover. Harry dealt with all of this amazingly well. This treatment ended in July 2016. Harry is now finally in remission!

Unfortunately, the relapse rate for Neuroblastoma is extremely high. There is currently no protocol in the UK to treat relapsed Neuroblastoma. It may be necessary for Harry to have further medical care overseas (in the USA or Europe), where more specific medical trials are available, and will be of benefit to Harry. 


We are therefore asking that donations be made directly to a special fund set up by Harry's family, who can use this money in the event that further treatment is required overseas. Should this money not be required for Harry’s treatment or associated costs, all proceeds will be donated to a charity of Harry’s choice, most likely to be Solving Kids' Cancer and to the hospitals that treated Harry (Milton Keynes Hospital, John Radcliffe and the Royal Marsden) to help other families affected by childhood neuroblastoma.
 
Every day, throughout this gruelling treatment, Harry has continued to have a smile and be his happy, playful, fun loving self. His story has touched the hearts of everyone in our community. We feel passionate about helping to raise the funds that could make a real difference to Harry's future.
