Weʼre raising £1,000 to Raise money for Ollie Cripps, a four year old diagnosed with leukemia.
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.
Jaya and Lucy are taking part in a tandem skydive on the 30th September 2018 to raise money for Ollie Cripps, aged four, from Sittingbourne in Kent.
The money they raise will go towards making happy and precious memories for Ollie and his family. So please take the time to read his story. All donations, big or small, will be most gratefully received.
(From his parents)
19th June 2017 Ollie was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML).
He underwent 6 months of intense chemotherapy. But it wasn’t enough...
In late October 2017 we had the news that he had relapsed.
Plans were put in place for Ollie to start chemotherapy again, so he could undergo a bone marrow transplant. This also meant that his siblings (all 3 of them) could be tested to see if they could be a potential bone marrow match. This was a 1 in 4 chance of one of them being a match.
2 weeks later we got the results. All 3 of them were matches! They chose the eldest and the same sex. Which was his brother Finley.
March 9th 2018. Ollie underwent his bone marrow transplant donated by his big brother.
Everything looked good. Ollie’s body accepted it without any complications.
We reached our 100 days after transplant which is a big milestone. Everything looked good.
He then started to get a blood shot eye, this was going on for weeks. First we thought it was just irritated but his eye ball started to swell. After numerous appointments to ophthalmologist’s and being transferred to different people. They came to the conclusion that it may be his leukaemia coming back but as a mass.
He was booked in for an MRI scan on 9th July and a biopsy on 10th July.
After turning up to his MRI and having routine bloods taken we then find out the devastating news that his counts are very high and are very suspicious.
So the biopsy was cancelled and a bone marrow asprite booked for the following day to test how much cancer was there.
Not good news...
It was back!!!
Our poor boy was going to have to have more chemo. As if he hadn’t been through enough the last year!?
After speaking to the consultants there was only a few options we could try. And these were not options to cure him...
