Charlies LIFESAVING CancerTreatment!
!!!TREATMENT FOR CHARLIE IS NOT CURING HIM! NHS HAS NO MORE CHEMOTHERAPY OPTIONS LEFT FOR CHARLIE! WE NEED TO GO PRIVATE! PLEASE HELP HIM LIVE!!!
Charlie's memorise is now raising for private treatment abroad to give him a chance of life.
For Charlie to travel to be given a second opinion will cost around £4000 there will also be treatment cost, traveling cost, accommodation cost, if Charlie gets and infection he will need money there for the cost of treatment, blood transfusion.. the list is endless..
We're trying to raise as much as possible to save his life. There are so many events in place to raise thousands.. so I'm setting a target for £50,000. Until we seek advice abroad I can't say how much more we may need but for now £50,00 will allow us to travel, have accommodation and approximately 8 weeks of chemotherapy.. He may need more but I will not give up!
Please help our baby boy live.

On the 1st of February we got told our baby boy had a tumor in his liver. We knew nothing more till he had his biopsy on the 5th. When his results came back it was heartbreaking to listen to.. All 4 sections of his liver had been taken over and they also found it had spread to both lungs. The scan images was the hardest. Seeing this cancer taking up so much of his tiny body!! He got diagnosed with Hepatoblastoma stage IV. -Hepatoblastoma is a rare tumor that usually occurs in children under 5 and only about 8 children are diagnosed in the UK each year. There are stages I, II, III & IV. Unfortunately Charlie is stage IV which means it's took over his liver and spread to both his lungs, because of this he will need a liver transplant, but they can't do this until the cancer in both lungs goes, otherwise it will just spread again to his new liver. The chemotherapy treatment he's on is to hopefully clear the cancer in his lungs and shrink the tumor in his liver. He has a scan in Leeds on 5.4.16 which will tell us how he's responding to the chemo and how ready he might be for his liver transplant. Until then and also after his transplant he carries on with all his treatment as normal (chemotherapy, blood transfusions, platelet transfusions etc) even though he seems happy in himself his survival rate is still only 20%-60%. We as parents left work to spend as much time as we can with him, but this has meant we have a really low income with hardly no financial support. I'm due to have our 2nd child on the 25.05.16 and Charlie's 3rd birthday is on the 24.04.16 and we want to make it a very special one so money at the moment is a stress we don't need. We are coping with what we get but as for weekends away and trips to the zoo etc in between his treatments is a struggle. The money donated isn't for any treatment as his treatment is on the NHS it's is literally just for him, and us as a family to make memories.
£23,000 is 6weeks worth of chemo and we've got it!!!
Can't thankyou you all enough!!
Now I've raised the target to the 250k Charlie will need for the rest of the treatment though out the year as well as accommodation, living expenses, treatment in case of infection, flights!! ❤️❤️
Thankyou all from the bottom of our hearts! ❤️
Every time I look at this page i fill up with tears, Charlie is my gorgeous grandson ,and what everyone is doing for him has totally restored my faith in humanity, I just want to say thankyou to you all, those who have donated and those who have shared his page and said such lovely words.

Contact Cancer Treatment Centers of America. It's a faith based cancer specialty hospital here in America that may be able to save your little man. They leave no stone unturned and will do whatever is within their expertise and ability to save their patients. Also, St. Judes here in America as well..I will pray for you and your family. God bless you.
I am a nana of a neuroblastoma warrior and we had to raise money to send him abroad for lifesaving treatment. We were fortunate that the local paper got behind us and helped us spread the word. The local community helped raise the money we needed to send him to America. I pray you get the funds you need to help Charlie get the treatment to save him. My grandson was 3 when he was diagnosed with neuroblastoma stage 4. He was 4 when he went to America for 5 months. Next month he will be 8. I believe in miracles and count my blessings every day.
I just contacted them and your doctor needs to send them an email with a brief clinical summary of his condition. Go to St. Jude's.org and there is a page with information on families seeking treatment. I pray that they are able to help. Please contact me if you need any research help or phone calls made here in the states. God Bless you all
God bless him and you poor parents. Hopefully he will get well soon. I think you should claim disability living allowance for your little man and careers allowance, as he has a serious illness he is entitled. Also, do a self referral to the children's disability team in social services, there are things you are entitled too. Furthermore, check out www.cerebra.co.uk and www.familyfundUK Both give grants for days out or equipment etc to make life a little easier. X
Amber you and Ben are being so brave and little Charlie is an amazing little boy. I have contacted numerous companies about days out etc and am awaiting replies. We are not only going to reach your target we are going to smash it.......your little family deserve some fun times and to make memories you can cherish forever that Charlie can look back on when he is a big boy...........much love to you all...here if you need me xx
There is a lady called Mandy at the Women's Centre in Accrington (next to Argos) and she is brilliant with money advice and finding out what you could be entitled to. They really go all out to help. It's a really great place. It's a call in centre. Hope this can be of help and that Charlie gets all the extra special things he needs. Xxx
To grandma Melissa, so happy that people are donating.As a grandma myself to 8 grandchildren (6 boys & 2 girls aged between 10 years and 11months) I know that I too would do all I could to help get them get the treatment they needed and like you would be so grateful.Thinking of Charlie & all your family and wishing you all things good. xox
Other people have commented for you to contact st Jude's and cancer treatment centers of America they take patients from all over the world it isn't based on the ability to pay. If you think that the money you are raising will be enough it won't just get visas to visit go to the hospitals and ask don't sit waiting you don't have time for that I know I've been there

Have you contacted St. Jude's in the U.S.? They often help children from around the world and also do clinical trials, which may help with cost. I would be happy to help you to research treatment options here in the U.S. or make any phone calls needed. Send me a friend request on Facebook. Your little boy reminds me of my little grandson and I cannot imagine what you are going through.
