Story

At the end of 2020, 12 year old Ashton was diagnosed with a rare type of bone cancer in his fibula bone in his calf. This is known as Osteosarcoma, a rare cancer which affects only 50 children in the UK every year. To those who dont know him, Ashton lives for football, loves Stoke City and is an extremely talented goalkeeper signed to Crewe Alexandra. He is a happy, energetic and incredibly caring young boy who certainly leaves an impression on everyone he meets.....young and old. Although this diagnosis has been a huge blow to Ashton and his family, they are facing this obstacle in the only way they know....head on with amazing positivity!!!

Today Ashton begins an intensive course of aggressive chemotherapy, which will be followed by surgery and further chemotherapy. His treatment will take place in Stoke, London and Birmingham, meaning multiple trips between three hospitals to get the specialist care he needs. For the next 12 months Vicky, his mum, has now become his fulltime carer.

As a group of friends we plan to organise some fundraising events to support Ashton and his family through this difficult year but more importantly to support Ashton in his recovery afterwards. However, in the meantime if you can spare anything you can to make Ashton, Vicky and Waynes journey a little lighter and to support this amazing young boy, it would be hugely appreciated.

    from Ashtons family:- We are currently looking into treatments that will support Ashton’s recovery as he is desperate to recover and be back in his goal and I will do anything I can to make that happen. Ashton may require other specific operations to aid his rehabilitation after his main surgery in March, this in something we are currently exploring and this page is giving us the opportunity to do that. Thank you so much. Your support means the absolute world to Ashton and will make a significant difference to his recovery. Thank you so much
