£2,177raised of £500 target by 97 supporters

Weʼre raising £500 to Help support Adie and his inspirational family through his treatment. Sadly Adie has been diagnosed with brain cancer at just 11 years old

Penrith, Cumbria, UK

What is crowdfunding?

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.


Sam is one of the most beautiful people I know inside and out. She has an equally fantastic husband, Gary. And 3 gorgeous children. Natasha 18, Saskia 16 and Adie 11.

Sam and Gary’s youngest child Adie has been very poorly for the past 18 months , he has missed lots of school and has been fed by a feeding tube for many months and despite lots of hospital appointments, he was not getting any better.

In October, Adie started to have problems with his eye. Following a scan the family were given some devastating news Adie was diagnosed with brain Cancer..

One of his tumours has grown over the pituitary gland which controls everything in your body, eg appetite, thirst, growth, feelings etc

Adie has started chemotherapy and is on thyroxine, steroids and hydrocortisone medication for life now. He is also going to have a growth hormone to catch up as he hasn’t grown for the past 18 months.

They have amazing support from their families and friends.

I would like to raise a minimum of £500 (more would be amazing). Just to ease their everyday necessary bills and to possibly make a donation to the ward that Adie is being treated at the RVI.

Wouldn't it be amazing if we could reach this target and more for such an amazing family. If we can double the target or more, once Adie is up to it, the money could also go towards a well deserved family holiday for some quality time together as a family unit.

Sam and Gary are incredibly proud people and would never ask for help. But I know there are so many of us that would be incredibly proud if we could just help a little bit.

Individually it may not be a lot, but together it could be massive.

    The family are astounded at the support for Adie. He’s had a rough 10 days with a few blips. After a blood transfusion on Sunday he has felt much better. He is back in hospital on his 3rd round of chemo, after a short spell at home. Today is day 4 of the 5 days he has chemo. He’s passing time with a few lessons with the teachers on the ward. He has built a great relationship with one from the Bobby Robson Foundation. He also received an ipad from Gary's work colleagues which he spends a huge amount of time on. The team are fab. Thank you all

I have known Sam for many years and she is a very dear friend. I was feeling pretty useless when Adie got diagnosed struggling to find ways to support and help during a very difficult time, hence the crowd funding.
