Story

Why have we chosen the Arnhem Bridge as the final destination for our endurance march? Breyas dad is a serving member of 2 PARA. Myself and the team are also members of The Parachute Regiment. The Arnhem Bridge is somewhat symbolic to any British Paratrooper, the words; bravery, courage, pride and the determination to never give up all ring true when the word Arnhem is spoken. Breya and her family have all of this. Everyday they battle this horrible disease and stay strong. They have everything thrown at them but crack on, day in day out. But they still need our help.

We will march (carrying 40lbs bergans/daysacks) from Colchester to Harwich crossing, then from the Hook of Holland to Arnhem Bridge and raise breyas flag at the Bridge.110 miles total distance.

Little Breya has been fighting high-risk neuroblastoma since the age of 2. She now needs 8 vital scans not provided on the NHS, to regularly check that she’s still ok and act quickly if she’s not.
In January 2017 a tumour was initially discovered on Breya’s adrenal gland and grew to consume the whole of her stomach, spreading to her bones and bone marrow too.
But now Breya’s completed frontline treatment in the UK which included intense chemotherapy, a 14-hour operation, radiotherapy, more chemotherapy, a stem cell transplant and immunotherapy.

Preventing relapse
Devastatingly around 40-50% of children with high-risk neuroblastoma will relapse and once that happens, less than 1 in 10 will survive for more than 5 years.

The focus then for Breya’s family is to do everything to prevent the cancer from returning. After 2 years of fundraising, they have enough to access the Bivalent Vaccine trial at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York.

But they still need your help. Breya needs 8 PET/CT scans over the next 2 years – not provided by the NHS – which will cost £24,000. Not only do they capture any sign of a relapse at the earliest stage, they are also a requirement of the Bivalent Vaccine trial.
