Weʼre raising £75,000 to pay for life-saving treatment for our daughter who has high-risk neuroblastoma

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

On the 2nd of October 2017 our beautiful and high-spirited 15 month old daughter Cara was diagnosed with high-risk neuroblastoma. It was a cancer we knew very little about and our world was shattered by the news that this was a life threatening disease that accounts for the highest number of deaths within childhood cancers.

We went on to discover that Cara‘s treatment would be incredibly hard-hitting and invasive and that funding for some elements of the treatment was uncertain. We were so very grateful to discover recently that the NHS will now fund immunotherapy for Cara and other children in the UK with high-risk Neuroblastoma. It’s a massive weight off our shoulders to know that she will now receive this cutting edge therapy that is readily available for children in Europe and the USA.

Neuroblastoma is a very rare disease affecting just 100 children a year in the UK and whilst Cara is now receiving a fantastic level of care here in Newcastle there are other ground-breaking treatments available in America that prevent it from returning. We continue to fundraise in the hope that we will do everything possible to get our daughter through this terrible disease. Any of the money raised that isn‘t required for Cara’s treatment will be donated to Neuroblastoma UK.

    On 13th of July Cara turned 2 years old!! It was an amazing day and we celebrated with an open house and endless visitors and cake. Cara had a really fun time and she’s such a happy child who loves to dance and sing. Thanks to all our family and friends who made the day so special for her. Special thanks to Helen for the fabulous Frozen cake!! 👍🏻

    We decided to shave Cara’s hair as it’s started to fall out for the second time. She’s just completed her high-dose chemotherapy and it started to fall out in big clumps which she found distressing. It’s so much better now and we think she actually rocks the look! The chemo has gone well and we’re in hospital waiting for the aftermath and the effects of such strong treatment. Thanks for the donations so far we really appreciate it!
