    Story

    On 23rd June 2016. This beautiful, kind, caring, bubbly & funny girl 8 year old Amy Barret was diagnosed with Ewings sarcoma in the base of her spine. It is currently inoperable due to where its situated. Amy needs to go to Amercia for proton beam therapy as this is the only treatment available for this type of cancer. This is a very rare type of cancer and only affects 35 people a year worldwide. Amy has been having chemotherapy at Birmingham children's hospital and was scheduled for proton beam therapy early next year. This has now been moved to early November this year. So it is vital that we raise the money as soon as we can so it's one less thing for the family to worry about. Amy will have to be in America for approximately 12 weeks where she will receive daily proton beam treatment along with more chemotherapy.

    Please donate to this worthy cause and help us support Amy and her family through this difficult time.

    We are grateful for any donation you can make. Thank you x
