Story

Our Son Callum is 19. He has an older brother and two younger sisters. He has worked hard through school and has just finished his engineering apprenticeship, he had the rest of his life to look forward too. He has now been recently diagnosed with a stage 4 cancerous brain tumour called Glioblastomer. This has devastated our family. He had to have a 9 hour operation to remove most of the tumour, but they could not remove all of it due to its position. He is now going to be undergoing daily Radiotherapy and Chemotherapy. We have now been recently told after another MRI after him collapsing at home, that it has progressed and he has another tumour. This can't be operated on and he can't have any more radiotherapy, he can now only have Chemo. We have had to change this page priority. Although we are still looking for other treatments, we now have to focus on his quality of life. We need to build him a downstairs room, also widen door frames and purchase medical equipment that he needs, so he can stay at home, and be with the family where he belongs. Every second is precious. This is where we ask for your help. If you could donate, that would be appreciated. However small, it does not matter. If you can't, thank you for taking the time to read this, but PLEASE SHARE THIS in your social media pages, By pressing the buttons at the bottom. Crowdfunding relies on shares to reach as many people as possible, and increase the possibilities of donations. We will try whatever possible to help our Son. We will be doing different fundraising events, including back to back Wolf runs, walks, mountain climbs, cake bakes ect. Thank you for all your support. It is appreciated.

    I am currently setting up a new just giving page that should be up shortly to continue fundraising for the TCT wards & ward 39, so that we keep the pages separate. With the donations we will make contact with companies, suppliers of equipment to either get them donated or reduced costs. Any companies that are willing to donate directly, please make contact to Katie on ward 27, in the memory of Callum. Thank you. -x-
