update: Thank you so much to everyone that is continuing to support us it means the world to us. Luke is now recieving Intra-arterial chemotherapy & immunotherapy im monterrey mexico. Luke has had 7 IA treatments & 4 immunotherapy treatments and has reaponded well so far 🙏🙏🙏 we have seen tumour shrinkage, cyst shrinkage, less cancer activity where cells are dying & much clinical improvement. We need to continue with these amazing treatments & your all helping us do this thank you xxx
UPDATE: Thank you so much for everyone's support so far, the response has been amazing. As you will see below when this campaign was started we were raising money to pay for CED treatment, the target was reached to allow us to pay for this. We have hit a stumbling block with CED as a cyst has developed which at the moment means that CED is not possible until the cyst disappears. We still very much have CED in our sights but we need to consider other options quickly also. Thank you so much x

This is Luke Stewart, son of Jennifer and Mark, brother of Lewis and Lochlin. Luke is 7 years old and has just been diagnosed with a very rare brain tumour, called a Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Giloma (DIPG). The best way to treat this rare tumour is for Luke to take part in a ground breaking clinical trial. He will receive CED (Convection Enhanced Delivery). This trial will help not only Luke, but children worldwide in the future.This treatment does not come cheap, it is Circa £100,000.
We are reaching out to the British Public to help us raise the funds required for Luke to have his treatment down in London.
Luke, his brothers and friends are not aware of the situation and we would like to keep it that way for obvious reasons. We would appreciate it if you could respect the families wishes and not pass this information onto your children.
If your children do ask about Luke, please could you say that he has not been feeling too well, and that he needs to be looked after by a doctor in London.
We need to raise this money really quickly to get Luke onto this trial, to try and save his life.
If you are doing any other fundraising events and are looking for a charity to support, please do get in touch also.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read.
Please feel free to share this.
