    Story

    Those of you who know me will know I don’t ’do’ running. However, I have decided to enter the Edinburgh 10k on 25 May and to use the opportunity to raise money for Aaron. This is his story:

    Aaron Murphy is an 11 year old from Dunfermline who has relapsed neuroblastoma. Aaron was first diagnosed at the age of 4. He went through treatment and was in remission for five and a half years. Unfortunately Aaron relapsed with the same cancer in November 2017.

    There is no standard treatment path for children who relapse, and their chances of long-term survival currently stand at less than 10%. Following relapse, Aaron has had chemotherapy and the surgical team at Great Ormond Street Hospital were involved to see if they could attempt to take Aaron’s tumour out. The chemo didn’t work and the surgery was deemed impossible. Aaron then took part in the Beacon Trial in Glasgow but unfortunately in January scan results showed that his disease had progressed he was taken off the trial.

    He is currently taking part in another trial at Great Ormand Street supported by Cancer Research UK using anti-GD2 T cells.

    You can follow updates about his journey here: https://m.facebook.com/pages/category/Community/Aaron-Childhood-Cancer-Warrior-2152949321436748/

    The family are fundraising with the charity Solving Kids Cancer in case treatment not available through the NHS is needed. The money I raise will either go towards this fund or to the family directly.

    Thank you

    Catriona

      Thank you all for your generous donations. Aaron sadly passed away last week. I am now going to withdraw the funds and pass them to support the family. The family are also planning on making a donation to the charities that supported them.
