We are raising funds to give 12 year old Ollie the treatment he needs to save his life.
He was diagnosed with a brain tumour on the 19th May 2015. He underwent an 8 hour operation where only half of the tumour could be removed. Following this he lost the ability to speak, swallow, stand, walk or use his right hand. He has had to re-learn all of these things. He underwent a further 2 brain operations, followed by 3 cycles of chemo, 34 sessions of radiotherapy and then a further 7 cycles of chemo. He maintained an amazingly positive cheerful and polite manner throughout. The nurses would ‘argue’ over who got to care for him!
We had started to dare to believe we had beaten cancer, when we got the devastating news that he had badly relapsed and that his condition was considered “incurable”. However, we have one last hope, a treatment known as “The Vienna protocol” or “MEMMAT”. It is the only credible option for Ollie and he needs two years of treatment at a cost of £440,000. He faces yet another a gruelling year, but Ollie has come through so much and is so loved.
Please help us save him.
