    Story

    On Friday the 13th of January 2017, Breya Ward who
    Is 2 years old and the daughter of Ollie Ward and Holly Robinson was sadly diagnosed with Stage 4 High Risk Neuroblastoma. A very rare Cancer that effects Children under the age of 6. A very cruel and aggressive disease that has grown on little Breya's adrenal gland, and grown to consume the whole of her stomach; as well as spread to her bones And bone marrow all over her body. Breya has started her treatment which is a very intense type of Chemotherapy and will last over 18-20 months as currently Breya's tumour is inoperable. However, the aim and our dream is to have Breya cured by the 5 year point of starting Chemotherapy, there is no quick fix and this will be a long and challenging road. Her proud Mum, Holly and her Dad Ollie are by her side every day throughout her battle and have both put their lives and careers to one side to focus on their daughters fight for survival and to keep Breya smiling. 50% of stage 4 neuroblastoma patients will relapse within 2 years. If this happens the NHS doesnt currently have any treatments or pathways for curing this. This means in the case of the cancer returning the only option is travelling to the US for new trial therapies which could save Breya's life. This treatment would cost somewhere in the region of £250,000 just to help people understand the scale of this plea. Also Breya is part of a new break through trial...but if for any reason she no longer meets the requirements the family will need to fund her treatment elsewhere in order to get required lifesaving drugs. She is already falling slightly behind on the chemo check points and we have some further concerns regarding our access to the essential immunotherapy.
    Breya is a hero. She fights each and every day with a smile and has gone through more than any adult I know and nothing ever gets her down, she is already an inspiration to many. Her life is worth more than all the money in world.Please support me.........
