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.
Myself & my friend are doing an ultra marathon hike which is 100k from London-Brighton starting Saturday 26th May and finishing Sunday 27th. This hike is with the Action Challenge group. They set us 36 hours to complete this challenge.
With having two little boys myself (one also called Freddie), I can't begin to imagine what Freddie and his family are going through. I would however like to help them raise as much money as possible to help with his treatment.
Freddie was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive cancer called Neuroblastoma. He has unfortunately been diagnosed as stage 4 high risk. This means Freddie has a 35% chance of survival. With the nature of his cancer over half of those children will relapse if they ever get to remission. If this ever happens there is a 1 in 10 chance of survival.
As promising as new treatments are in the UK, it only increases chances slightly and children are still relapsing from this cruel disease. Through the advancements of American research (which are 20 years ahead of the UK), there are increasingly positive signs that a vaccine has been invented which is giving children a lot higher chance of becoming cured from this awful cancer! The Bivalant vaccines have benefited a large number of children in the UK which wouldn’t have any other options if they faced another relapse on the NHS.
The cost to potentially save Freddie's life is huge, so please help get Freddie this medication that he needs, so he can grow up to be a happy, smiley little boy again!
Fighting for you Freddie!!
