- Warrington, UK
- Funded on Friday, 21st December 2018
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.
My name is Angela, I am a neighbour of Callum Foy and his family. I have previously been through this myself with breast cancer and I can understand some of what this family are going through. It is an awful time for anyone especially a child.
I have decided that I will SHAVE ALL MY HAIR OFF yes all my hair :) and raise funds for Callum. This will take place on Friday 7th September, 1pm outside woodys, clay lane Burtonwood WA5 4HH. Would be great to see you all there on the day.
This is a really tough time for them all not just emotionally but financially too. Im hoping to raise as much money as I can to ease the pressure of money worries. Money raised will help with living/travel costs and anything that Callum may need along the way. Any help no matter how small will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you xx
Callum is a caring happy 10 year boy from Warrington. He loves to spend time with his two younger brothers. He has a love for rock music and Manchester FC.
Callum suffers from a condition called Neurofibromatosis which can cause tumours to form anywhere on the body. Most of the time these tumours are benign, but unfortunately for Callum he developed a large plexiform in his neck which turned malignant. After the plexiform in his neck started to grow rapidly surgeons decided to remove it in July this year. His family received the devastating news a week later that it was a grade 3 nerve sheath sarcoma. High dose chemotherapy started two days later and Callum in currently in Manchester Childrens Hospital about to start his second round of treatment. In september Callum is also due to start proton beam therapy in Germany for 8-10 weeks of daily treatment. Whilst this treatment would be funded by the NHS Sophie and Gaz will need to fund the cost of taking the younger two children with them as its unfair to separate the family. They will also need cover the cost of living expenses over there whilst still paying the bills back at home.
On top of this Callum also has an inoperable brain tumour also caused by the Neurofibromatosis. Although there are no signs of this being malignant, it is showing signs of activity meaning it will also require chemotherapy at a later date.
Callum is in and out of hospital so much recently that his dad has had to take time off work to stay with Callum whilst his mum looks after his two younger brothers. On top of this his dad is due to made redundant in the next couple of months.
