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.

Karen and Andy have been told Caleb urgently requires proton beam therapy. They have just found out the NHS are funding the treatment and flights for Caleb and mum and dad. They will also cover accommodation for any family members going. The consultant has informed them it will be 9 weeks and recommended they travel as a family. This will aide Calebs recovery.. This would mean taking gran and grandad as they will need help with childcare. We now need to cover flights for 2 adults and the 2 girls plus living costs for 9 weeks.

Karen, Andy and all the family are immensely grateful to everyone for their donations but more than that the love, support and kindness shown to them.

If you could share this on your social media accounts we may get an extra push to allow Calebs family to be there with him while he goes through this ordeal. 💙

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

    wanted to update everyone on Caleb, our warrior. It was expected the family would be in Jacksonville by now however, Calebs levels have been low so they have been trying to raise them first. Hopefully, be flying out the middle of this week. We recently posted a financial breakdown of y we r desperately seeking donations for Calebs wee family. We are now over £10.000 and can not thank everyone enough for all the kindness, love and support shown at this difficult time.

    The family have just had the financial cost back for the car and house whilst in America for Calebs life saving treatment. It will be $400 for house and $300 for car per month so works out at £536 per month so will be around £1602 we need to pay for the 3 months. Thats not including living costs and flights, plus costs for rent and bills back home. Thank you so much to everyone for all the love and support. We can never repay all the love we have received 💙🙏💂🏼‍♂️
