Weʼve raised £900 to help raise vital funds for Reuben's Fight
- Funded on Saturday, 27th May 2017
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
On 6th May, James will be taking part in Tough Mudder - doesn't sound like the sort of thing James likes doing does it..?! It doesn't involve large quantities of food, wine or watching sport! But this is all for a really important cause - to raise as much money as possible for a three year old little boy Reuben, the son of a family friend, who is fighting stage 4, high risk cancer.
Please give as generously as you can to help Reuben receive pioneering treatment abroad - which comes at the staggering cost of £250,000! I promise to post action shots of James doing the Tough Mudder as a reward!
Little Reuben turned 3 years old in December 2016, only a couple of weeks after his devastated parents, Jess and Kulwant, were told their precious little boy had Neuroblastoma - a rare childhood cancer affecting fewer than 100 children in the UK each year. This aggressive type of cancer was found in his abdomen but had already spread to his bones and bone marrow before they had any idea. Such news is crushing for any family but dealing with this diagnosis alongside the recent arrival of a newborn baby is a huge undertaking.
Since diagnosis, Reuben has undergone months of gruelling treatment; invasive tests, multiple procedures, five rounds of chemotherapy and surgery to remove his primary tumour. This is just the start of his treatment journey and our incredible NHS are doing their very best to help Reuben. His family are focused and hopeful on getting Reuben in to remission, at which point he will be eligible for further treatment not yet available in this country. This additional treatment is to help prevent relapse, an unfortunate reality of this type of cancer.
Please help Reuben live the life of a happy, cheeky little boy again and thank you SO much for any donation you can give.
All donations will go directly to Reuben's parents and will contribute towards his treatment.
James & Louise and all the Quinn family
