Story

on December 15th, Alek Walker, Marc McCabe and Chris Worden are doing the Eslecar Santa Dash Marathon (ho ho ho) to raise funds for Jorgie’s treatment. Please donate what you can to help fund her life saving treatment and please cheer the trio on their way!

Neuroblastoma is an aggressive children’s cancer that as a high relapse rate within 5 years. Jorgie hasn’t been to play school yet due to being in and out of hospital for the last year and a half, she has endured chemotherapy plus high dose chemotherapy also a stem cell transplant she also suffered consequences of the transplant and was in an induced coma in the run up to Christmas 2016 for a month also missing her 2nd birthday. 2 major operations followed plus numerous infections and endless hospital stays. Immunotherapy followed and then 15 rounds of radiotherapy each with a general anesthetic. Not once has Jorgie complained but just got on with it❤️we have been given a chance to go to Michigan in the USA for life saving treatment which sadly isn’t funded by our own NHS! The treatment will cost about £200,000 which we are raising through a series of events.

    Well over half the funds needed for Jorgie has now been raised and she has had three treatments in the USA so far. Jorgie is responding well to the drugs and is scheduled another trip out there around Christmas time. We have enough money to date to treat her until Christmas 2019. Keep an eye open for our future events. Thank you everyone for making this happen xx

I’m helping to raise funds for Jorgie Rae’s treatment because I’d like to think people would do the same for me if I was in that position. Jorgie and her family are very special people who need help treating their baby girl.
