Story

Please help my family as our Caleb, my 3 year old nephew fights cancer, one of a triplet with 2 sisters, poppy and alysia. They were born tiny at just 27 weeks and had to fight to survive, and they did.

Caleb took unwell around the end of February this year, a CT scan showed a large mass in his brain which was removed. The results have now came back showing it is an atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumor (ATRT) which is a rare and aggressive form of brain cancer. Little Caleb now starts an intense treatment of chemotherapy and radiotherapy for 6 months, he fought to survive once and now has another fight on his little hands. Between caring for Caleb, regular hospital visits and off course caring for Poppy and Alyssia, daddy will not be able to work as much. Calebs daddy is self employed, driving a taxi for a living, that means no sick pay, no family should have to worry about bills and finances at a time like this so please if you are in a position to do so please donate. We are grateful for all the publics help, it means so much more than words can express.

Caleb required life saving proton beam therapy in Jacksonville, florida which the NHS were part funding. The generosity shown to the family have allowed calebs sisters and grandparents to travel with them which will aide his recovery. The family are now safely in Jacksonville and treatment will start soon. Caleb and family are likely to be there 9-12 weeks.

Caleb is now home after completing his proton beam therapy. However, still faces at least another three months of chemotherapy before we know if the treatment has been successful.

Unfortunately the funds have now dried up as the family have had to pay for living costs in the USA as well as bills back home. Including the NHS bills for flights etc. Andy has now had to return to work part time to cover bills.

If i can please ask everyone to give one last push to help Caleb and family in this last stretch in this horrible journey.

Thank you most sincerely for the love, kindness and compassion shown to the family. We are emotional at the generosity from everyone.

Thank you 💙🙏💂🏼‍♂️

please do what you can to help this family whilst they put their efforts into saving Caleb.

    Caleb is now home having completed his proton beam therapy however, still faces at least another 3 months of chemo before we know if the treatment has been successful. The support has been amazing from everyone, unbelievably overwhelming. Unfortunately the funds have now dried up as the NHS bill for flights etc. Andy has had to return to work part time which is putting extra strain on the family, if everyone could give one last push to help them get past these last few months it would be so much appreciated.
