Story

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 earlier this year, a CT scan showed a large mass in his brain which was removed. It was an atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumor (ATRT) which is a rare and aggressive form of brain cancer. Caleb is having an intense treatment of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, 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, 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.

Caleb required life saving proton beam therapy in Jacksonville, florida which the NHS were part funding. The generosity shown to the family allowed calebs sisters and grandparents to travel with them which helped in his recovery.

Caleb is 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.

Calebs counts have been very low lately, this has meant daily hospital trips, chemotherapy being cancelled and mummy and daddy needed. So Andy has not been able to work much since coming home.

All the family are pulling together but its just not enough so once again we are pleading with the public to support this little family.

Unfortunately the funds previously raised 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. .

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.
