    Hi Everyone

    I’m writing to ask that we pull together to help a friend and colleague, Laura Newill and her family, as they face a most horrendous journey with their son William who is 4-years old and has been diagnosed with a rare type of brain tumour called Ependymomas, stage 3 (aggressive) cancer .
    William has the opportunity to go to the USA for Proton Treatment which is funded by NHS England. This lengthy trip will undoubtedly cause financial strain and we would like to raise funds for the Newill family to ease some of the financial burden and cost of living and helping get their daughter there with them.
    Please can we all try and make it possible for William and his family to go and have this treatment, because at the moment Proton Beam facilities in the UK are limited and the NHS sends certain patients overseas for the treatment.
    We are hoping to raise £5,000. No matter how small your donation is, it will most certainly be appreciated. This money is to help the family travel and stay together whilst William is receiving his treatment, which could be up to eight weeks.
    Thanks for reading and please share with family and friends, let’s keep spreading the word for William.

    Thanks so much.

    Sharon xx

      We are at the end of day 4 and we have raised a fantastic sum of money that will help cove expenses for the Newill family whilst they are in America. I can confirm that they will definitely going in the next few weeks, it could be Oklahoma or it could be Florida. Laura tells me that they will only have a few days between finding out when and where and actually going. There are still lots of tests and therapy for William but I am told he is doing really well, it is still a long road ahead. Thank you all again for your generous donations.
